Dearest Human Beings,
A meta-artist is a human being who makes meta-art in the Name of the Sublime Fashioner.
This reality, this universe, this world, this nature, these creatures, these actions, etc., all these entities are a Wonderful and Complex Artwork. The Sublime Fashioner is the only One who has designed this Artwork.
A meta-artist makes meta-art to remind the human beings that this Wonderful and Complex Artwork has been designed by the Sublime Fashioner.
The most important thing for a meta-artist is her / his intention in her / his action as a meta-artist. Why does she / he make meta-art and in the Name of Whom? It is the essence of the action of a meta-artist: her / his intention.
Which media, which techniques, which styles of art, visual or not, audio or not, computerized or not, etc. all these questions are not important because everything is possible today. The main question of a meta-artist is what the value of her / his intention is.
A meta-artist is not seeking fame, glory and wealth. These attributes belong to the Sublime Fashioner, only.
A meta-artist does not sell meta-art: she / he gives! She / he does not take! It is a pure voluntary, benevolent action, without any ulterior motive. A meta-artist has an ascetic life among human beings. Enjoying a materialistic life and a life of luxury is not her / his way of life. Doing meta-art is one of her / his actions among human beings. And it is very good that the meta-artist shares the joy and pain of everyday life of the human beings by having a professional activity. If the meta-artist is only a meta-artist, she / he could be dissociated from others by believing that her / his world of meta-art is unique and her / his ego is her / his god. Meta-art is an action among billions of billions of actions. A meta-artist is a dust among billions of billions of dust.
A meta-artist does not necessarily exhibit her / his meta-artworks. She / he never forgets that the One who makes her / his action possible is the Sublime Fashioner. She / he is rewarded according to the value of her / his intention, and not the price of the meta-artwork or the quantity of fame or social and official recognition she / he could get from her / his meta-artworks. “Emerging artists” and “well-established artists” mean nothing for a meta-artist. A meta-artist is beyond these two states of emerging and being established because her / his intention in making meta-art is not to please the society and to be recognized, but to worship the Sublime Fashioner.
A meta-artist does not waste resources. Dumps all over the world are plenty of useful and free materials that could be reused and recycled to do meta-art. It is why a meta-artwork is always free. The price, if there is any, is a spiritual price and a mystic value, and it is not the god-dollar that is able to estimate this spiritual price and this mystic value, of course not! It is only the heart, the heart of the human beings who can estimate the spiritual and mystic value of a meta-artwork!
A meta-artist is unknown, not because of fake modesty, but because she / he never forgets that she / he is nothing in this world. Doing meta-art is asceticism in order to submit the ego of the meta-artist to the will of the Sublime Fashioner.
The self-esteem a meta-artist could have for herself / himself is nothing when compared with the love a meta-artist can express for the Sublime Fashioner. In return, this meta-love is a gift for others.
Meta-art is a matter of love and peace in the Name of the Sublime Fashioner.
