Meditation

Meditation is not something different from daily life, do not go off into the corner of a room and meditate for ten minutes, then come out of it and be a butcher-both metaphorically and actually.

Touch Your Heart

When you begin to touch your heart or let your heart be touched, you begin to discover that it is bottomless, that it doesn’t have any resolution, that this heart is huge, vast and limitless.

No Artist is Pleased

There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and be lost.  The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine How good it is Nor how valuable it is; Nor how it compares with other...
