“Nature is pleased with simplicity. And nature is no dummy.”
– Isaac Newton
Nature appears to be meditating all the time. It is still. It doesn’t worry about anything yet it accomplishes its task.
“Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.”
– Lao Tzu
We’ve been educated to worry, but what if we didn’t?
What if for at least one day we didn’t worry about anything – like Bob Marley sings.
My challenge for you is for one day this week, think about what it would be like to not worry about anything at all.
“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.”
– Leonardo da Vinci
There’s a whole lotta talk about finding your niche & sticking with that.
I say fuck that.
You know those pictures that say things like “Discover. Dream. Explore.” Yea those are pretty corny but they have some truth within them.
To continue discovering, dreaming, and exploring you must not limit yourself to one niche.
Some people, some “experts”, consider people who study multiple subjects now as “crazy” or as having multiple personalities. This is insane to me. Those “experts” are narrow minded and filled with selfish biases and mis-understandings. Fuck “experts”.
For example though, I guess Leonardo da Vinci would be considered mentally ill in today’s “modern world”. Same with Nikola Tesla, Benjamin Franklin, Isaac Newton, Aristotle, & the list goes on.
To be great in this world is to do great work – perennial work, and to create perennial matter you must actually discover, dream, and explore a range of subjects.
“When a great genius appears in the world you may know him by this sign; that the dunces are all in confederacy against him.”
― Jonathan Swift
Carry on with the genius within you.
Fuck the “experts” and Fuck your niche.
