A good traveler has no fixed plans and is not intent upon arriving. A good artist lets his intuition lead him wherever it wants. A good scientist has freed himself of concepts and keeps his mind open to what is.
Thus the Master is available to all people and doesn’t reject anyone. He is ready to use all situations and doesn’t waste anything. This is called embodying the light. – “Tao Te Ching” by Lao-Tzu, Stephen Mitchell translation
For all that happens to you.
For all that you do.
For all that you take in and consume.
Ask yourself this question…
“How can I use this?”
How can I use this to help others. My family, my friends, the world.
How can I use this in my art or my business or my hobby?
How can I use this to make me a better human being?
That’s one of the many great things about working on a passion project. It orders and prioritizes everything for you. You now have your meaning and purpose. Including and especially when you go through tough times. (For example, an actor is told to “bring their day in with them” as fuel for the character they’re playing.)
Go make meaning by making your art.
