Art should be like a holiday: something to give a man the opportunity to see things differently and to change his point of view.

Let someone love you just the way you are – as flawed as you might be, as unattractive as you sometimes feel, and as unaccomplished as you think you are. To believe that you must hide all the parts of you that are broken, out of fear that someone else is incapable of loving what is less than perfect, is to believe that sunlight is incapable of entering a broken window and illuminating a dark room.

Be generous in prosperity, and thankful in adversity. Be worthy of the trust of thy neighbor, and look upon him with a bright and friendly face. Be a treasure to the poor, an admonisher to the rich, an answerer of the cry of the needy, a preserver of the sanctity of thy pledge.

When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be. When I let go of what I have, I receive what I need.” —Lao Tzu

Whenever you are present, you become "transparent" to some extent Being is not only beyond but also deep within every form as its innermost invisible and indestructible essence. The word enlightenment conjures up the idea of some superhuman accomplishment, and the ego likes to keep it that way, but it is simply your natural state of felt oneness with Being. It is a state of connectedness with something immeasurable and indestructible, something that, almost paradoxically, is essentially you and yet is much greater than you. It is finding your true nature beyond name and form. Beyond the beauty of external forms, there is more here: something that cannot be named, something ineffable, some deep, inner, holy essence. Whenever and wherever there is beauty, this inner essence shines through somehow. It only reveals itself to you when you are present.

Manipulating the images of ourself in other peoples' minds, is tantamount to lying about the truth or lying about a lie. Either way you look at it, it is a useless and counter productive activity. But why is it that most of humanity seems to be engrossed in it most of the time?
