i am not concerned with simply surviving. i am very concerned about improving. i start each day by examining yesterday's work and looking for areas where i can improve. i am always trying to draw the characters better, and trying to design each panel somewhat in the manner a painter would treat his canvas.
let the first act of every morning be to make the following resolve for the day. i shall not fear anyone on earth. - i shall fear only god. - i shall not bear ill will toward anyone. - i shall not submit to injustice from anyone. - i shall conquer untruth by truth. and in resisting untruth, i shall put up with all suffering.
when i run after what i think i want, my days are a furnace of stress and anxiety if i sit in my own place of patience, what i need flows to me, and without pain. from this i understand that what i want also wants me, is looking for me and attracting me. there is a great secret here for anyone who can grasp it.
