Group Info

There is a saying that the eyes are a window to the soul; well so is the canvas, as well as the text of the page that you write on. The image in your photograph; the art work you built from different elements that are otherwise mere materials are ways of showing others what is inside; the inner you. We show everyone who we are through these images or written words, each piece expresses who we are, our dreams, hopes, fears and more; our work is an extension of ourselves.

Here at Souls-of-Artists, no art piece is to meager. We believe that there is an artist in all of us. Therefore there is no good or bad art, and all artists are welcome here to share their hopes, dreams, thoughts and more.

Instead of a place where you just feature your art and leave, like some art locker, we want those who are willing to share what they are with others. To interact and even help other artists to hone their skills, encouraging and supporting one another.

We aim for a positive experience here, and we want everyone who comes to have fun and enjoy themselves, to learn, grow, and really become united.

Only thing left to say is welcome and we hope you enjoy your stay.

Happy man in Tel Aviv by Rikitza
Artwork by :iconrikitza:

All that has become merciful to the cruel, to the end becomes cruel to the merciful

How could it be that the mercy would make a person cruel?
 After all, as is well known, "after the actions the hearts are drawn" = The more a person behaves in pity, the more pity develops in him, and the more merciful he becomes!

Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass ???"

But Saul and the people spared Agag, and the best of the sheep, and of the oxen, even the young of the second birth, and the lambs, and all that was good, and would not utterly destroy them; but every thing that was of no account and feeble, that they destroyed utterly.
And Nob, the city of the priests, smote he with the edge of the sword, both men and women, children and sucklings, and oxen and asses and sheep, with the edge of the sword.

The similarity between the expressions shows that there is indeed a connection between the two things: Saul was compassionate for the Amalekites and did not want to kill them as he was commanded, and then he was cruel to the people of Nov and killed them in exactly the same way he was supposed to kill the Amalekites.

However, in the Amalek case, the word "mercy" was not mentioned but only "compassion", and the difference between them is significant, as Malbim wrote in his commentary to verse 9: "Mercy ... for he is short of a loss of a man or of his troubles ..." "And compassion will be ... that a judge with his mind is not worthy of corrupting that thing, and that it exists better." "" And behold, the Lord did not warn ... let them not have mercy on Amalek, for they are spiritual qualities, so that they fulfill the commandment of the Lord, nevertheless he will be drawn to raise his mercy and hurt his heart in the death of young children ... "" But compassion is the matter of my thoughts, That it is improper and dishonest to destroy them, and unjustly the Prophet commanded him to do so. This is a criminal sin because he wants to be clever against God, and therefore they commanded him not to think about a thought worthy of its existence and not to corrupt it. ""

Mercy is a feeling of sympathy-the more you feel sorry, the more pity grows; But compassion is an intellectual decision not to kill, and one who is forgiven of people who deserve to be killed

You may have noticed we have dozens of folders right? We did that for easier sorting though
it seems a bit much, it felt less general and more personal.
