Quoted from chapter in PEACE IS EVERY STEP, by Thich Nhat Hanh,
If we just act with awareness and integrity, our art will flower, and we won’t have to talk about it at all. When we know how to be peace, we find that art is a wonderful way to share our peacefulness.
Artistic expression will take place in one way or another, but being is essential. So we must go back to ourselves, and when we have joy and peace in ourselves, our creations of art will be quite natural, and they will serve the world in a positive way.
