For Tuesday, March 28, 2017:
… The great and fatal pitfall in the art field and in life is dependence on the intellect rather than inspiration. Dependence on intellect means a consideration of observed facts and deductions from observation as a guide in life.
Dependence on inspiration means dependence on … a growing consciousness that develops from awareness of beauty and happiness. To live and work by inspiration you have to stop thinking.
You have to hold your mind still in order to hear inspiration clearly.
