The most significant spiritual gifts given to the human being are our philosophical, religious, and artistic inclinations. Everyone can easily understand why a philosopher or a religious person is able to better understand the meaning of spirituality. Philosophers are thinkers who speculate the meaning of life. They pursue knowledge and wisdom. Religious people go to the church and follow the Bible. They are into contact with God.

However, only real artists can understand the spiritual gift represented by an artistic talent. As a literature writer, designer, and composer, I had the spiritual gift given by art. I needed it because I had to fight against a prominent schizophrenia. My father was schizophrenic. I would become schizophrenic like him if I hadn't chosen to heal myself through psychotherapy. I needed all the help I could have in order to escape from craziness and terror. This is why I was gifted with many artistic talents, especially an exceptional literary talent.

My literary talent helped me better understand the poetic and philosophical dream language. It also helped me accept being patient. I took 19 years to write my book. I had to gradually improve my work while curing many people through dream therapy into practice. I had to present a perfect work to the world, while everything was so complicated, time consuming, dangerous, and obscure.

Today you can easily learn everything that Carl Jung discovered about the meaning of dreams and their healing power. You can also easily learn everything that I discovered after continuing his dangerous research in the unknown region of the human psyche through dream interpretation. However, in order to be able to present you such work, I had to pass through a million challenges. You are very lucky because I finally managed to put everything together in such a simple form.

Many artists have created extraordinary works, while they had a miserable life. Bach lost 8 of his 12 children. Beethoven became deaf, while he loved music so much. Van Gogh cut his own ear, while he was controlled by craziness and despair. Great artists didn’t seem to find peace during their troubled lives. However, their artistic talent certainly gave them psychological support.

I was lucky because my best talent was the literary one. Words have specific and symbolic meanings that give us more information about our own minds and about our world.

An artist always demands perfection from his or her creations. These creations cannot have any defect; they cannot be ugly. They must be very beautiful. Art is the pursuit of perfection and beauty. This is why it can help the human being find out the meaning of spiritual perfection.

Unfortunately, many artists, philosophers, and religious people were never able to discover the bridge that unites the human being with God. This bridge is based on pursuing spiritual perfection, the same way we pursue the artistic perfection of beauty in an art work. I was lucky because I could perceive this connection.

We attain spiritual perfection when we cultivate goodness, forgiveness, compassion, generosity, and understanding in our hearts. However, in order to do so, we must completely eliminate our poisonous ego. We must always remain humble if we want to find peace and wisdom.

Did you receive special spiritual gifts? You certainly did, but perhaps you are not using them the way you should. Even if you are not an artist, or if you don’t feel you have any philosophical or religious inclination, you have received a gift. Everyone does. However, spiritual gifts must be developed. You must pursue sanctity, the same way artists pursue beauty and perfection.
