in this moment

Filed under: Uncategorized — Elizabeth @ 4:28 pm

Thank you Danny Gregory for helping me relax into drawing. re: the monkey (critical mind) in his recent post: if you can be friends compassionately approach the monkey with love, it will sit down playing quietly beside you. if you critique the monkey to get away from critque-ing, you further develop the habit of mind of critique-ing.

When drawing matters more than the finished drawing, this experience: is being the moment more than being the result. that is what drawing in the gutter is – it’s: I am not doing this to frame it; I’m not living this for that (there is plenty of time to do that), just for a moment I’m living this for this, as it is, without trying to control it or change it or pretend about it. The experience, just as it is: could I even see all that without the clutter of monkey mind? Draw a thing, and the thing and the draw-er get in a relationship. the experience of separateness drops off.
