When you compare yourself to others,
when you measure artistry in skill,
when you look for rewards and gratification,
true creativity is lost.
It has become chained to the material world,
to the courage and originality of others.
Therefor, to free your mind,
to free your creativity,
you must look inwards and create
for the sake of expression of self,
and not to affirm your artistic ego,
or to exalt your creative talent.
