Bryan Wade: Art in Everyday Life – Podcast 293


The key to living an artful life is to relax into our sense experience and not try to manipulate it or use it for personal gain. Then we realize that the world is an open field of confident experience, constantly refreshing us to face the hassles in our world with genuine grace.
