There are tons of them:
Good writers hidden from the world
Good musicians playing in the dark
Good artists painting for no one;
Some make it big somewhere
Some make it big everywhere
Some make it small elsewhere
Some don’t make it anywhere;
Do you please yourself?
Do you please the world?
Shall I venture a guess?
If you can please yourself
The universe will look on
Imagine the current reality to be something like overlapping translucent sketch sheets, where each layer is an individual’s perception and his own reality. Some people have stronger minds and stronger wills, so the sketch on their translucent sheet is more distinct.
Reality is something of an art piece that continually changes, and each person’s mind contributes a part to this ever morphing art piece.
If you actively seek to change your mind and your reality, it may affect the entire combined reality of this world that is made up of many, many sketches, depending on how strong the change is that may cause your own sketch to be more distinct and prominent.
The universe is made up of all of the time-less art pieces that are made up of countless sketches, of all living beings and existences past, present and future. All of these art pieces co-exist together to form a complete picture, each art piece a different reality of different outcomes and possibilities. If you have strokes that are clear, focussed and powerful, the universe could just shape a master piece of artwork around you and allow you a glimpse of all the art pieces that makes up the complete picture that is the universe itself.
You will then no longer be a sketch piece; you will be an observer of this process, and a witness of existence.
