"Eye Of Providence" (明眸​​​​​​​​​​​​​​)
"Eye Of Providence" by island6 Art Collective (Liu Dao)
// BLURB //
Some people think that if everyone went around doing whatever they wanted, the world would be pure unadulterated chaos. Just imagine giving in to any and every desire, want, or need. What kind of world would that be? Aleister Crowley believes that one should “do what thou wilt”. In other words, go ahead and chase whatever your heart desires. Determine your own true will and follow it! It is worth pursuing whatever you are willing to do. In Greek mythology Hedone is an important philosophical concept, personified as the goddess of pleasure and enjoyment. According to Aristotelian ethics, pleasure will reveal a person’s true character, and therefore is worth exploring. An example of this concept is “oikeia hedone” or proper pleasure. Similarly, German philosopher Martin Heidegger’s interpretation is that enjoyment is a movement of the soul which results in tranquility and peace. Following this line of logic, one must definitely “do what thou wilt”. And yes, someone will always be watching, but don’t you think that just makes it more fun?
