10.) The mine of "all art".

Just connected with the following Rilke quote that is burrowing its way into my psyche:
"Surely all art is the result of one’s having been in danger, of having gone through an experience all the way to the end, where no one can go any further. The further one goes, the more private, the more personal, the more singular an experience becomes, and the thing one is making is, finally, the necessary, irrepressible, and, as nearly as possible, definitive utterance of this singularity."
—Rainer Maria Rilke
The "t" in Cheeta can stand for transforming, transmuting as well as transfiguring.
Also this quote:
"Everything is gestation and then bringing forth. To let each impression and each germ of a feeling come to completion quite in itself, in the dark, in the inexpressible, the unconscious, beyond the reach of one's own understanding, and await with deep humility and patience the birth-hour of a new clarity: that alone is living the artist's life-- in understanding as in work."
