What is solid and heavy is the foundation
of what is light and restless.
so too inner quietude must be the fundation
of artistic activities.

The mastercraftsman works actively all day
without loosing sight of his inward purpose
Though a thousand beautiful and fasinating impulses
manifest themselves,
he stays inwardly serene and one-pointed.

You are the ruler of your own domain.
Are you going to allow yourself to be swayed
this way and that by your wandering mind?
You will never find your bearings.

Find the sourse of creativity within yourself,
nuture your inner roots.
