If you ever listen to those that are the visionaries in our lives, you will hear one main theme. They have maintained an open mind and an open heart in their acceptance and in doing so, they crossed the paths of ‘what ifs’ to turn them into realities. Keeping an open mind removes the filters that we are surrounded with, it empowers the concepts that tear down the barriers and opens doors to new ideas. Much of that which we now take for granted began with an open mind.
You will be free to explore the entire universe and that freedom is what the others cannot share
You May Be Alone
One thing that the dreamers and futurists also shared is the fact that they stood out among the crowd. They dared to think outside of the walls that were constructed and instead broke them down, brick by brick. This can be a lonely place, not shared by many, as it is part of human nature to exist in the limitations that have been set. But in being alone, you will find that there is a sense of grace and calm. You will be free to explore the entire universe and that freedom is what the others cannot share.
There is a kind of brilliance involved in asking ‘why’ and ‘why not’. This is a state that we are taught to ignore. To fit inside the expectations of society, we are instructed to obey the rules and look and act a certain way. To venture outside of those guidelines may bring scoff and criticism. But in maintaining that open-minded attitude you are removing the structures that hold everyone else in. You can toss aside the shallow and the ridiculous and suddenly you will realize new realms.
