ART AS AWAKENING (Meditation)

Art is a vehicle for awakening
It invites us to see in a new way.
Art reveals our intrinsic luminosity
Present even in the face of suffering.
Enlightened qualities are always within us
We need to cultivate them
Just as flowers need light and water to bloom.
Immerse yourself in beauty
Wisdom and compassion arise in spaciousness.
Soften your mind, open your heart
Follow your breath with joy and awareness.
