The art class, by Jay Shetty

"Why?” asks an insistent high school art teacher. “Why? Why? Why?” Staring blankly back, a young Jay Shetty has nothing to say. It’s an art project, it's just homework. A collage. It’s just … layers. The next day in a subway station, Jay's chance encounter with an ad peeling off the wall unlocks the truest answer. What he discovers that day about himself carries forward into college, when Jay meets a fellow student who's consumed by negativity and pain. There, the art project from so many years ago comes in handy in ways he never anticipates.Read Jay Shetty's book Think Like a Monk (listen to Think Like a Monk as an audiobook read by Jay).Jay hosts the podcast On Purpose with Jay Shetty.Sign up for the Meditative Story newsletter, to get an episode reminder and a meditation in your inbox each Saturday: http://eepurl.com/gyDGgDFollow us on Twitter and Instagram:https://twitter.com/MeditativeStoryhttps://www.instagram.com/MeditativeStory/
