  • "A true work of art is an object that has power to draw our attention, 
to draw perception inwards, to its source of pure beauty. It is never the thought that is true, it is never the person that is loveable, it is never the object that is beautiful. Truth, love, beauty, they reside in the Self. They reside at the source of experience. They are our-self. Truth, Love, Beauty, can not be found anywhere else. Everything that we deeply long for: Truth, Love, Beauty Resides in the simple knowing of our own being as it is. It's knowing of itself, in us, as us."
