You cannot heal yourself, or make yourself grow

My approach in my work is to understand and address my obstacles; the shifts then happen by themselves, organically, as an outgrowth of the non-self-judgmentally inquiry:

All the work you do here is based on understanding what you do and how you interfere with the natural process. If you try to do anything other than understand the situation, your effort will be a blockage, a resistance, an interference. You cannot make yourself grow; you can only cease to interfere. You cannot make yourself happy; you can only stop your judgments. Growth and expansion are natural; they are the life force itself. And you cannot predict its direction.

True Art – like Love, like Life – is beyond all concepts and intellectualization

I don’t believe that rational understanding is an essential element in the reception of any work of art. Either a film has something to say to you or it hasn’t. If you are moved by it, you don’t need it explained to you. If not, no explanation can make you moved by it.
– Federico Fellini
