The path to enlightenment is realizing there is no path, but simply being in the moment. While some people find their meditation in sitting still, some while doing activities, and I find that the best meditation for me is with the brush.

Beautiful Ashuku painting


No one saves us but ourselves, no one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path…

Artemis:  It is often quoted as a verse from the Dhammapada.  
It’s said to be a liberal translation of verse 165: By oneself indeed is evil done and by oneself is one defiled; by oneself is evil not done and by oneself is one purified. Purity and impurity depend entirely on oneself; no one can purify another.
