Art, Meditation, and Purity

There's something inspiring about art.

Art is pure. It requires no compromise.

And so, there is magic to viewing and appreciating great art. It is the manifestation of an artist's pure vision.

So much of life is about compromise. And so I find that the harder I work the more I crave looking at art.

After a day of deals and negotiation, I yearn to experience something pure. I just bought a membership to the Whitney. So if I only have ten minutes, I can run in and look at even one piece of art. When I see it, one artist's pure masterpiece, I feel relaxed. Then I can go back to business. More and more I seek art and galleries, museum and plays.

Meditation also makes us more pure. It helps us shed boundaries and insecurities. To become more - ourselves. And to give out the special vibration that makes us uniquely—us.

I love this about meditation. It helps us become more confident and relaxed being ourselves, saying what's on our minds, speaking up for what we want, and not being afraid to embody every curve and inch of the snowflake we're meant to be.
