Teaching Without Teaching

In the Zen tradition, any teaching worth learning comes through intuitive feeling—not from Institutions, long winded speeches, or dialog. 

This, of course, makes sense when you realize that the same is true for great art.

No one can teach you how to be artist because no one can teach you how to be original. You must find your voice on your own.

This knowledge has great liberating power. I encourage you to use it.
