... out of the book "Presentation Zen" by Garr Reynolds:

"Yet, also like the trained artist, there is no thought of technique or of form, or even of failure or success while performing the art. Once we think of failure or success, we are like the swordsman whose mind stops, ever so briefly, to ponder his technique or the outcome of the fight. The moment he does, he has lost.

This sounds paradoxical, but once we allow our mind to drift to thoughts of success and failure or of outcomes and technique while performing our art, we have at that moment begun our descent."

Keep on happy painting!
