(of Artistic Concerns) Cecil Orion
Praised or criticized, honored or ignored,
the master takes all in stride.
He does not build his life in pursuit of the one
or as a protection against the other.
Knowing the great privilege of being alive,
He accepts the consequences of living.
With feet firmly planted,
he is not raised up by honors nor
cast down by indifference.
Loosing himself in the nature of harmony,
he has nothing that can be lost.
Permeated by harmony's nature,
there is nothing that can be added to him.
