Objective art, wherein one creates from a state of awareness or total love, is not just confined to painting and music, but can be applied to one's profession as well.
An example is the case of Luther Burbank,an American botanist and horticulturist, who created cactus of a thornless variety for the first time ever.
As Burbank stated, " The secret of improved plant breeding, apart from scientific knowledge, is love. "
Paramahamsa Yogananda , in his book 'The autobiography of a Yogi' records this conversation that took place between the two.
Burbank told Yogananda , "While I was conducting experiments to make 'spineless' cacti, I often talked to the plants to create a vibration of love. You have nothing to fear. You don't need your defensive thorns , I will protect you. '
Gradually, the thorny cactus evolved into a thornless variety.
The book Autobiography of a Yogi was itself dedicated to the memory of Burbank by Yogananda, acknowledging him as 'An American Saint'.
This is a classic example of inculcating art in one's own profession to bring about great results which is aesthetic as well.
Similarly cooking food can be an objective artistic activity too.
Most people prefer to take food made by their mother or wives or girlfriends or close relatives and friends , rather than going to the restaurant which may have a wider variety of cuisine and delicious food.
This is because food made with love has a special taste of its own which cannot be replicated by a restaurant chef focused on profits. Osho had stated that food cooked with love changes the chemical texture of the food itself. And I would say it would have more prana or vital energy in it.
Similarly food cooked with prayers and eaten saying grace by dedicating it to the divine, also tastes better than that eaten without dedication. Many have testified this to me, and it is my own experience as well.
A friend of mine once told me of his religiously minded uncle, whom he used to visit. The uncle prepared food for him, chanting in the middle of the cooking process steadily. And in my friend's own words, even though the ingredients of the food were often not in proportion, the food somehow tasted quite good.
Food thus created with awareness or love can be put under objective art.
The restaurant chef may create food specially decorated and aesthetic looking, but without awareness or love within, and just in his capacity as a trained professional chef.
Such food created would come under subjective art.
It looks good and tastes good, but somehow, you are not content within.
