And because reality is always reality for consciousness, and since consciousness always includes feeling and willing, “it is the artist, not the scholar, who arrives at the true nature of reality.” It is the artist who does not concern him or herself with subjectivity or objectivity, who, in order to create must be fully engaged in a creative event through knowing, feeling, and willing, and who is ever aware that artistic reality “is a succession of events that flow without stopping.” Thus, your pure experience and mine are the doorways to reality. -Keiji Nishida
