“Develop deep respect to the world
Breathe in the trace of a bird flying by
Gently touch the sky with your fingertips
Place the sky inside you
Then upon your head
Wrap yourself around the earth
Smile without moving your lips
See the whisper, hear the tree
Eat a pear without opening your mouth
Run away beyond the hill while standing still
Say all the words you know simultaneously
Similarly purr all the melodies
Reflect in all the objects at once
This is how paintings are born”
- Yuri
