Maestros and so-called geniuses are people who have given themselves over to their art.
They have set aside their arrogance and their ego.
By embracing the teachings of their art, they have transcended mediocrity and truly gained skill.
Instead of forcing a result, or willing a conclusion, the person has sublimated their sense of 'self'.
The individual has become one with the art.

You cannot gain real skill by trying to control the art.
Instead, you must surrender to it.
You must let go.

In a very real sense, you do not master the art. It masters you.
