UNCONDITIONAL EXPRESSION

We no longer regard a work of art as a gimmick or as confirmation. It is simply expression — not even self expression, just expression. We could safely say that there is such a thing as unconditional expression that does not come from self or other. It manifests out of nowhere, like mushrooms in a meadow, like hailstones, like thundershowers.

From “Heaven, Earth and Man,” in The Art of Calligraphy. THE COLLECTED WORKS OF CHOGYAM TRUNGPA, Volume Seven, page 191. Also in the forthcoming volume TRUE PERCEPTION: THE PATH OF DHARMA ART
