It is very difficult to say. If I just take a few names I won’t be doing justice. But it starts from my mother.
When you are in the moment, when your mind is here right now, then you’re able to draw inspiration from everyone around you. Anytime, anywhere, people can inspire you. It is an internal phenomenon. So I find that inspiration is opening that source of energy within you, and anyone can become a catalyst for that. A child in the street can inspire you, a carpenter can inspire you, a gardener can inspire you. You only need to have that willingness to take the inspiration.
