Virtuous Failings; Failing Virtues

 

“Our virtues and our failings are inseparable, like force and matter. When they separate, man is no more”
— Nikola Tesla

 

Not only are our virtues and failings inseparable, they are often the same. A strong business sense can easily be perceived as greed. Kindness can often flip over to gullibility and creativity and imagination can often look like flakiness. I don’t know that any trait can be good or bad in itself. Instead partially through perception and partially through lack of moderation, all traits become at least double-edged if not tripped or more. Yet how do we come to understand any trait or quality that we have if we don’t take it to all extremes? How do we understand that trait in others? Only through understanding the totality of every aspect of our beings from its highs to its lows can we truly have control over it.

Tuning In

 

“My brain is only a receiver, in the Universe there is a core from which we obtain knowledge, strength and inspiration. I have not penetrated into the secrets of this core, but I know that it exists.”
― Nikola Tesla

 

Tuning in
and creating
a blank page bleeds potential
in technicolour drops
Touching on dream images
and visions that enter
through the imagination
and manifest through weary fingers
Honour the connection
with each word
and mouse swipe
knowing that work comes through
the artist and not from
the ties to the all
and to the naught
creating form from potential
with gratitude.
— G A Rosenberg

 

Blessings, G

Quote of the Day – August 29 2012

“All that was great in the past was ridiculed, condemned, combated, suppressed — only to emerge all the more powerfully, all the more triumphantly from the struggle.”
― Nikola Tesla

 

(I’m rifting a bit tonight, just talking)

True that, great ideas may be suppressed but they always reemerge. Gandhi said “First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win and ideas often seem to go through similar cycles…These days the idea of personal liberty seems somewhere in between being laughed at and being fought, let’s hope that it get’s fought tooth and nail so that we can finally win our freedom…. I was just talking with a friend who asked me what the best way to solve circular logic and I replied either breaking out of it or using the solution Alexander the Great used on the Gordian Knot…a knot that was unable to be unraveled…when brought before Alexander he cut through the know with his sword.  My friend asked ‘thus rendering the knot useless’? and I asked him what use he saw in circular logic… he asked me for an example of the Alexandrian solution in speech and I referred him to Marx Brother’s movies…Groucho Marx’s specialty seemed to be his ability to derail any and all conversations…Something which I tend to enjoy as well…

Quote of the Day – August 13 2012

“Of all the frictional resistances, the one that most retards human movement is ignorance, what Buddha called ‘the greatest evil in the world.’
The friction which results from ignorance can be reduced only by the spread of knowledge and the unification of the heterogeneous elements of humanity. No effort could be better spent.”
– Nikola Tesla

I’ve been listening to William Shatner cover songs all day and going to see Macbeth (or should I say ‘the Scottish Play’ for are we not all actors, especially when we act according to our natures) tonight so am feeling a bit well bloody minded? Nah just feeling the world and hopefully it is a pleasant feeling for us both.
Ignorance can be tricky. We all have areas of ignorance and have so much trouble admitting that fact so often… I don’t get why. I mean ignorance enlightened can feel as good or almost as good as sex in the right situation. When all of a sudden something is understood that wasn’t before, it’s orgasmic or at least i feel that way.
Blessings, G
