On Thought Processes and the Problem of ValuesPosted: May 26, 2017
The best way, I find, to further a goal or realise a vision is to focus on the story. What one wishes to express – through the sort of life they lead.
And if there’s one ingredient crucial in the cultivation of creativity, then surely, it is that quality of being honest with self. Personal aggrandisement never carries true merit; and to take the high road requires a great deal of humility.
So, knowing that you must now ensure pride never gets in the way of your story’s essence. And understand that trials do in fact add to the glory.
Let your reality be imbued with the promise of your dreams because the grander the ideal, the easier it will be to fit the shoes you’re trying to fill.
But remember, the pursuit of grand application of ideas through experiment can sometimes mirror educational brilliance devoid of ethical substance.
So be always true to your word, but do not be afraid of change. And should you let your limited wisdom inform your every action; or decide to traverse the terrain of the temporal instead of having noble aspirations, know that your success too will be short-lived like Hendrik Verwoerd’s.
