In Plain Sight

Insight is a matter of diligent cultivation and manufacture. It doesn’t spring fully whole from flashes of inspiration.

Tautologically, you can’t grow without changing. If you stretch something to make it longer, it gets thinner. If you squash it down to make it wider, it gets shorter. Energy and mass must come from somewhere, just like character.

Relative movement is key. Relative. You can find great meaning in being the one who climbs the mountain, but you can also find great meaning in being the island amid a stormy sea. Relative. But if you are static in a static environment – no movement, no meaning, no growth.
