“How wonderful that we have met with a paradox. Now we have some hope of making progress.”
― Niels Bohr
I have found it so easy to get stuck in my own point of view at times. I’ve held on to a belief or a thought about such things as my own abilities or my feelings about others, only because either an alternative point of view had not entered the picture or I did not put more effort into seeking it out. I mean ideas we have for years are comfortable yet holding on to them unchallenged is the fastest way to stagnate that I can think of….
Yet when I do consider the alternative view and find the value in it amazing things start to happen. I may not be able to reconcile the two things that easily (How can I have no artistic ability yet start to make art?) yet in that reconciliation and synthesis I can claim a part of myself that I’ve refused to before. By considering a new way of approaching reality I can change my reality into something far beyond what it was before.
