When artists lose themselves in their art, then the art comes to life. -- Hazrat Pir-o-Murshid Inayat Khan
Commentary from Hazrat Murshid Samuel L. Lewis (Sufi Ahmed Murad Chisti):
By this means God created the world, and partly in imitation of Allah it is wise to follow such a course. Metaphysically speaking there is another explanation. Energy and magnetism are imparted to us with breath. When the breath is used to praise God or is returned to God with fervor and remembrance, this increases the capacity for inspiration. In every form of inspiration—whether one understands it spiritually or not—all interest is focused in one’s work. Then the divine breath touches every portion of one’s being and this passes into the form which the artist is shaping—be one a musician, poet, architect, artisan, or any other molder of beauty.
