From an interview with Laurie Anderson (performance artist) …. “But back to the Bible: the Sermon on the Mount. ‘Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? . . But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.’ I think Richard Nonas was thinking of the Sermon on the Mount when he told me it was okay to be an artist. I was out of art school and I was complaining all the time about paying my rent: How am I going to eat? How am I going to go on? He said, “Youâ€™ve got it all wrong. First you have to say, â€˜What do I want to make as an artist? What do I want to do as an artist?â€™ These other things are unimportantâ€“theyâ€™ll happen anyway. Once you get your priorities straight, youâ€™ll be surprised what happens.”
Sounds AMAZINGLY like what Seth (as channeled by Jane Roberts) said about the ‘idiot flowers’ in one of the books – cool.
