Recipe for Happiness from Martha Graham

Here is a Recipe for Happiness that is so eloquent I had to share it with you!

There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening,
that is translated through you into action,
and because there is only one of you in all time,
this expression is unique.

And if you block it, it will never exist
through any other medium and be lost.
The world will not have it.

It is not your business to determine how good it is;
not how valuable; nor how it compares with other

It is your business to keep it yours, clearly and
directly, to keep the channel OPEN.

you do not even have to believe in yourself
or your work.
You have to keep open and aware directly to the
urges that motivate You.  Keep the channel
O P E N.
