How Does an Artist See?

 "The Prophet" by Mooji

"The Prophet" by Mooji

“You’ll be feeling that invisible dimension behind the material object and that invisible dimension will enable you to understand that material object. How does an artist see new beauty? Because he sees beyond the mere three-dimensional form. He sees into the soul of what he’s working with. And its soul in you will enable you to see that in a new relationship.

You don’t look at an object and try to see the soul of it – you look from your own soul at the object. For your soul is the soul of the object. You’re really looking from within that object at its outer self. You look at the soul of you which is within that object as its soul – for the one soul of the universe is your soul. When you find it and touch it and live in it, it is within everything else you are looking at”.

– Herb Fitch, from talk 2 of Parenthesis in Eternity.
