Joseph Goldstein – Insight Hour – Ep. 20 – Art, Science and the Meditative Journey

art

A discussion of art, creativity, and the methodology involved in the meditative journey.

We are all artists creating our lives on the canvas of the world, and the voyage of discovery is learning to see in a new way. Developing awareness of the present moment is a crucial first step in the creative act. In quieting the mind, we increase our sensitivity to ourselves and our environment, allowing insight and inspiration to synergistically flow through us.

“In a real way we are all artists, we are creating our lives on the canvas of the world. And when we do that with awareness, with understanding, we are expressing creativity as an artist does with paint, music, or words.”
