"I want you to imagine that each person is in a room with a canvas in the middle of that room. Most people begin to paint unconsciously because it seems like the only thing to do. Some of them begin to paint whatever gets them commission, but they do so with dread because it isn’t what they really want to paint. Others, who call themselves spiritual, go through the motions of painting but dream endlessly about there being more to life than painting and obsess about what is outside of that room. It is the rare person who begins to consciously paint on that canvas and paint what they truly desire to paint. It is rare because most people have forgotten why they entered that room in the first place. Most people have forgotten they are painters and the canvas is called life."
