Skill makes you a salary,
Art makes you a fortune.
Salary can be earned instantly,
Fortune takes time.
Leonardo Da Vinci said it perfectly: “To develop a complete mind: Study the science of art; Study the art of science. Learn how to see. Realize that everything connects to everything else.”
Everything falls under Art if you achieve the No-Mind State.
And No-Mind comes from complete devotion to the task at hand.
Ever saw a child playing? Sure you did.
Have you noticed that the child is completely devoted to whatever he is doing?
The child is not overthinking, not finding shortcuts, not complicating it, simply devoting his entire existence to the task. That’s also why a child sleeps a few hours yet stays active and energetic for many hours.
Even playing guitar is a skill if you are just playing it for money, or just practising it.
If you train your guitar-playing ‘Skill’, you start to see the spark of ‘Art’.
Before Art, you need Skill.
But when you stop at skill, you kill your fortune.
Practice is repeating, Training is repeating with a creative active phase. You mix ‘You’ness in the practice, it becomes training,
You train for a certain period of time, it becomes Art. And you become a Master.
There is no ‘Process’.
No ‘How To’s’.
Only paths. Your created Path.
What you call a process, is truly, Nature’s Time to Response.
Do you really believe you can have an amazing body in one night? It will definitely take Natural Time to respond to your desire.
Your strength of Desire determines your Sincerity. And your sincerity is what needs to be Constant.
Discipline is a scam. You do things for a while with discipline, you do things for a lifetime with sincerity.
Sincerity is what determines whether you are going to be the Greatest Master in your domain, or not.
A sincerely burning desire and a creatively active mind makes Art when they meet.
I write and then talk about them. Human minds fascinate me more than anything in the world. A human nature student and practical philosophy freak. My ideas and perspective might offend you, in that case we can always keep those ideas aside, have a cup of coffee and discuss where our country is headed.
