“There is more than one way to burn a book. And the world is full of people running about with lit matches.”
― Ray Bradbury
Ideas according to man are notoriously difficult to kill. Yet people try to kill ideas all the time. Either they try to excise all uses of the ideas and thought or they distort the meaning so that noone will recognize it such as freedom.
Yet ideas like books can also be preserved by those who love them and those who believe in them. Noone can stop an idea that’s been shared. Noone can squash a dream that’s in the hearts and heads of many.
So hear’s what I propose we do. Consider it an exercise for our growth, an invocation and an exorcism at the same time. As soon as you have an idea worth sharing, do so. Write a book, tell a story, sing a song, paint a picture, photoshop an image… carve it out of mash potatoes but communicate it. Send it out into the world and it will live. You know its happened when you have the idea com back to you. Even if the form is different you sent a new meme into the world and in your own way have changed human history. Just by expressing your idea and doing it well. Kind of humbling it is.
