Ok, this is an odd question, but I'm curious. Do any of you meditate and if so, does it help your art? The reason I ask is because I, myself, am lazy and as such, my artistic ability isn't developing much. I want to find the love that I know I have for creation. I want to quiet my mind long enough to find some sliver of passion for it and embrace it, feed off it and allow it to motivate me to reach my artistic potential. I know that only time, patience and practice are the only real ways to develop, but what I'm lacking is true motivation and I'm wondering if anyone else has had success in meditating on the subject. Sorry if I sound like a tree huggin' hippie, I just take great interest in this kinda stuff and am curious about it.
