Leonardo da Vinci on spirit

Where the spirit does not work with the hand, there is no art.

Leonardo da Vinci

Yesterday I asked if the source of thought are the realm of soul and spirit. I wondered if the well is also considered the source of thought which are the realm of soul and spirit and if in this context was it a spiritual journey to seek the well. So I then wondered if writers block was not just the inability to write but is a disconnection from soul and spirit.

Today, I found this quote from Leonardo da Vinci speaking on how the spirit must work with the hand in order to create art. And so could we say that da Vinci would call the process of art a spiritual act?

Jayne is a writer. On her free time she likes to be with her family hiking outdoors and traveling. New England is her home and place of birth. When asked what she wants to teach the world she replied, "Don't stop searching. Too many times, in my old life, I put my search aside for more 'important matters.' I didn't realize the thing I was searching for held what was most important; my soul purpose." Jayne works daily improving her craft and at times can get down on herself, but her favorite morning mantra is "It's a new day." and that's what she strives to start with.
