“Some artists believe that anger, depression or these negative things give them an edge. They think they need to hold onto that anger and fear so they can put it in their work.
But you will not lose your edge if you meditate. You will not lose your creativity. And you will not lose your power … If you’re an artist, you’ve got to know about anger without being restricted by it. In order to create, you’ve got to have energy; you’ve got to have clarity … You’ve got to be strong enough to fight unbelievable pressure and stress in this world.
