PERSPECTIVE.

Class on Tuesday—

28 Aug

Explore readings.  Don’t just read.  Incorporate your life, don’t do what you’ve done in the past with reading or been told to do.  Do everything differently.  The way to read and understand is to experience what you read, not just read for the sake of “retention”.  One of the greatest flaws of institutional education is the ‘have to’ factor…. You have to read it this way…. You have to react this way…. You have to write like this…. How is that encouraging?  How is that education?  Explore your reading, as you read, and explore your own thoughts, build in and upon and around them.

If you can’t sleep,

find some way to get closer to your ultimate aim.  If you want to travel or finish a book, star in some headlining play or start a catering company, open a business of your own or just rewrite your life in some way… use the time you’re unable to sleep to capitalize on your abilities.  And, having some grand goal is an ability.  So many have no idea what they want, and that’s okay.  And if you’re someone who has no idea yet what you want, use the sleeplessness to think, or brainstorm possibilities in a journal, or on pieces of scratch paper.  Hang them on some board that you’ll always see, or in some area of your domicile that you everyday pass, preferably in the morning before you walk out into the day.  Though, if you’re someone who has a goal, some apexing reality you hope to taste, don’t squander this inability to shut eyes.  It’s a gift, an invitation to work, undisturbed.  Use it.  So many see sleeplessness as a burden, a pain, annoying.  I understand.  What I’m recommending is another perspective, an alternate attitude.  See what happens.  In fact, don’t “see what happens”.  Make something happen.

It’s dark, it’s quiet, it’s yours.  Take full possession and command of it.

Sometimes, and I’ve said this before,

doing nothing’s what you have to do to know what you need to do.  

The best writing, at times, is penned internally when you’re not materially writing.

Sit, stop, breathe, see, listen…

That passing car or plane flying over your house could answer every question you had, have, will have.

Opennes is onus.
