“Well, there are two ways to do what you want to do in music and performance. They
both have to do with intention. One, you don’t have anything to do with it. You’re
part of a whole and you’re a fluent vessel for all these things to come through you.
And then there’s the other one, when you go into meditation with Quest. As opposed
to being just
a blade of grass waving in the wind, you’re a blade of grass looking in a particular focused direction in order for the wind to blow you that way.” --Pheeroan akLaff
