Quote of the Day – October 24 2012

“What is important is to spread confusion, not eliminate it.”
― Salvador Dalí

 

I prefer confusion to utter unshakeable certainty… Confusion oft gives way to insight…Certainty to a dead end. When we’re sure of something we tend to stop asking questions and use what we’re sure of as a sign post…when we question and allow a bit of confusion in, all becomes discovery. It might feel a bit less comfortable but we tend to grow the most when pushed out of our comfort zone. The more our life becomes like a zen buddhist koan, “What did our face look like before our parents were born?” or some such the more we can open up and contain possibilities.. Or maybe it’s all an excuse and like Johnny Depp I like what confusion does to my facial expressions. 🙂
Blessings, G
