When I say I’m right, I’m usually right. Unless I’m wrong. In which case I will gladly admit my being so. Sometimes.
I just had a conversation with an intelligent young man who likely wouldn’t want to be named. So I won’t.
It focused on law.
More specifically, it focused on religious law. While I don’t care much for the idea of religious law, I do think the idea of law, in general, is pretty interesting.
What can be considered a law? Is atrophy a law? Is the idea that if something isn’t used that something will die universal. If something doesn’t grow that something will eventually die. If it isn’t used in some way it will shrink and cease to serve as much of a purpose.
I think it is a law. A universal one.
A few years ago I think my creativity and ability to develop ways to make money from none began to atrophy.
This is an ability that at one point was incredibly strong. My creativity began to weaken.
I noticed that it was because I was being fed.
I didn’t really have a reason to develop that muscle anymore because of the fact that I was working all the time. I had no reason to seek alternative ways to make money.
Now, how did I get around that?
I figured that I would place myself in a semi-weak position. One that required a creative muscle to be activated in order to get out of.
I’ve realized (and have heard from others) that placing yourself in positions that require muscles to develop(in this case creativity) forces growth.
You can’t get to different places by doing the same old things.
