The Vision of First Thought

Book coverTo become an artist, first there has to be a sense of vision taking place in one’s mind. Such vision comes from a state of mind that has no beginning and no end. It is very present, on the spot. We could call that vision “first thought best thought.” When that happens, there is no struggle.

From “State of Mind” in True Perception: The Path of Dharma Art by Chögyam Trungpa, page 125
