The Idea of Masterpiece

“In addition to the sitting form of meditation, there is the practice of panoramic awareness in everyday life. This particular kind of practice is to identify with whatever activities you are involved in. You could apply it to artwork as well. It requires confidence. Any kind of activity that requires discipline requires confidence. You cannot have discipline without confidence; otherwise it becomes a sort of torturing process. If you have confidence in whatever you are doing, then you have real communication with it – no matter what you are doing. You are not concerned with producing masterpiece. You are just involved with the thing you are doing. Somehow the idea of masterpiece is irrelevant.”
