See it to believe it

See it to believe it

We mistakenly believe that we find ourselves through our material possessions. But experiences are what put the bones in the goose. The rest (clothing, tattoos) are just acts of signaling.

We mistakenly believe that speeding up leads to better thoughts. However, hastiness leads to impulsiveness and myopia. It takes patience to link things together. Information leads to more information.

We also mistakenly believe that certainty is the way to go or it’s not worth trying at all. But fragility is what makes us unique and human. Jazz musicians work through a whole bag of things before they find the right note.

The imagination bleeds into the world. What we see comes into line with how we want to see it. Everything is practice, a melding together, as one experience, one question, and trial and error lead to the next.
