Hokusai says, look carefully. He says pay attention, notice. He says keep looking, pay attention. He says there is no end to seeing. He says look forward to getting old. He says keep changing. You just get more who you really are. He says get stuck, accept it, repeat yourself as long as it is interesting. He says keep doing what you love. He says keep praying. He says everyone of us is a child. Everyone one of us is ancient. Everyone one of us has a body. He says everyone of us is frightened. He says everyone has to find a way to live with fear. He says everything is alive, shells, buildings, people, fish mountains, trees. Wood is alive. Water is alive. Everything has its own life. Everything lives inside us. He says live with the world inside you. He says it doesn't matter if you draw or write books. It doesn't matter if you saw wood or catch fish. It doesn't matter if you sit at home and stare at ants on your veranda, or the shadows of trees, and grasses in your garden. It matters that you care. It matters that you feel. It matters that you notice. It matters that life lives through you. Contentment is life living through you. Joy is life living through you. Satisfaction and strength is life living through you. He says don't be afraid. Don't be afraid. Love. Feel. Let life take you by the hand. Let life live through you.
