There are three steps to becoming an artist:
1) Imagine the world you want to live in. When you are looking around and saying ‘What is missing from this picture? What’s not here yet?’ Put it there.
2) Create that world
3) Live in it
What it means to be an artist and an activist is about coming up with a plan for how you can live with yourself. It’s not about a business plan. It’s about wherever you are creating a zone of justice that is your being and is who you are and every action you take is creating more justice. Refine your habit energy so that everything you do has to do with justice, an act of consciousness, an act of connecting to your spiritual self. It’s when everything on earth tells you this makes no sense, it’s not rational, but you do it anyway, because it’s an act of beauty.
What part of you is not for sale?
