Do you ever realize how fat you are? Not with cheeseburgers in your tummy. But with all the amount of creation that you consume… every single moment!!!
This world is a pool of ideas and creative concepts and works of art.
Every second of your existence you have drawn from this well. Right from the bottle you drink water in.. to the memes and jokes you read on your wall. People… CONSTANTLY work to create it. They put in their TIME, ENERGY and CREATIVITY into it. And YOU consume it. Even right now you are consuming my work by reading this.
Can you weigh all this in just money? Can money buy time? Can it buy creativity?
How do you suppose to justify for all the endless amount of creation you consume?
You must CREATE. Creation and consumption are parallel. You must create to consume. Ask not what you can get from this pool. For that is infinite.
Tell what you can add to it. What have you done that isn’t already in it? What use did you make of the power that was given to you, the power to think- to create!!
And lame justifications won’t work now.
You might be a student and argue that you must first learn and then create. But be honest to yourself, did you really ever care?
You might have a job currently. And argue that work in your office is what you contribute. Yes I do agree. It does make life better for people. But do you think that’s enough?
All the great inventors and researchers of the world.. do you think they settled at just doing their “work” or chose to make a difference. How do you think does a civilization reach its pinnacle?
Get up!! And CREATE something!!
Doesn’t matter what. Just a scribble or a ‘Mona Lisa’ or whatever. The idea is to try.
It is to acknowledge the responsibility that has come with the great power of thought. And the duty that comes with the right of consumption.
What you create stays. You don’t.
What you create defines who you are.
It is what you actually pay to the world and to those millions who were here before you..
