by Eckhart Tolle
Artistic creation, sports, dance, teaching, counseling - mastery in any field of endeavor implies that the thinking mind is either no longer involved at all or at least taking second place. A power and intelligence greater than you and yet one with you in essence takes over.
There is no decision-making process anymore; spontaneous right action happens, and “you” are not doing it. Mastery of life is the opposite of control. You become aligned with the greater consciousness. It acts, speaks, and does the works.
from Stillness Speaks, by Eckhart Tolle
