A Contemplative Life – Art for Life = Why?

What are you thinking?

Where do your ideas

arrive from?

When the work begins

There is no difference between

the paper, pencil and me

It is not thinking

no thinking involved.

There is being

the paper, the pencil, the subject

all are present mind

no more me

no more before me

no more future me

just this

paper, pencil, subject

all together

this moment

past present and future.
