The most visible creators are those artists
whose medium is life itself.
The ones who express the inexpressible -
without brush, hammer, clay, or guitar.
They neither paint nor sculpt.
Their medium is simply being.
Whatever their presence touches has increased life.
They see, but don't have to draw...
Because they are the artists of being alive.
Your work is to discover your world and then
with all your heart give yourself to it.
Success is doing what you have to do.
There are only two ways to live your life. One
is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is
as if everything is.
One day some people came to the master and
asked: How can you be happy in a world of such
impermanence, where you cannot protect your
loved ones from harm, illness or death? The
master held up a glass and said: Someone gave
me this glass; It holds my water admirably and
it glistens in the sunlight. I touch it and it
rings! One day the wind may blow it off the
shelf, or my elbow may knock it from the table.
I know this glass is already broken, so I enjoy
it -- incredibly.

Theravandan Meditation Master
I thank God for most this amazing day; for the
leaping greenly spirits of trees and a blue
true dream of sky; and for everything which is
natural, which is infinite, which is yes.
