Here is what they left out at the art academy.
But to my great fortune, I stumbled into a yoga class a few years ago and the teacher was talking like this:
“Art is not just something you hang on a wall or place on an alabaster pedestal. Art is who you are… It is the very expression of Prana, of life’s creative mystery, uniquely moving through you as the human soul aroused. Yoga is the unifying art of transforming dharma into action, be it through inspired thought, properly nurturing our children, a painting, a kindness or an act of peace that forever moves humanity forward. It begins with a journey back to the essential home of the breath. Follow your breath and it will lead you to your creative source.”
