One must give himself completely
To his art and not hold back.
Throw caution to the
Embrace the muse.

You once told me
You wanted to find
Yourself in the world –
And I told you to
First apply within,
To discover the world
You once told me
You wanted to save
The world from all its wars –
And I told you to
First save yourself
From the world,
And all the wars

, and ancient life force, delicate and mighty,
awesome and enchanted, commanding the silence
ordinarily reserved for mountain peaks,
great fires, and the sea.”

Find yourself always…
Even if you go out
Come back again
…remember to fall in line again…
Remain with nature…
When I finally learned to let go of
having to totally control everything
around me and let my life unfold,
I was stunned by the results…

Art is both love and friendship and
the desire to give.
It is not charity, which is the giving
It is more than kindness, which is
the giving of self.
It is both taking and giving of beauty, the turning
out to the light of the inner folds of the awareness
of the spirit.
It is the recreation on another plane of
the realities of the world;
The tragic and wonderful realities of earth
and all the interrelations
(words: Ansel Adams)
Many rivers to Cross
And it’s only my will that keeps me alive
I ‘ve been licked, washed up for years
And I merely Survive because of my pride

You ask me ,
” can you tell us what is the purpose of creation ? ”
The world has never been created.
It has always been here ,
it is eternal.
There is no creator of the world :
God is not the creator of the world …
god is the
very creative energy of existence —
creativity rather than a creator.
He is not the poet but
Not the dancer
but the dance….
not the flower but
( the way of Buddha )
