Absolutely resonate with your thought Arya, that living in the moment is the most important take away – whether art teaches you that or life. My only two cents is – I would not discount the quest to perfecting form in this journey to live in the moment. One need not be a detriment to the other. As long as the quest to achieving perfection is not bringing you down in spirit or emotion, it can be as invigorating as watching birds or sitting by the ocean waves! Everything is a journey – including working on form or movements. Cultivating patience in practice helps stay in the moment. Loved your thoughts on it – do keep writing!
