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, “You’ve got it all wrong. First you have to say, ‘What do I want to make as an artist? What do I want to do as an artist?’ These other things are unimportant–they’ll happen anyway. Once you get your priorities straight, you’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.
