The Gift of Our Original Mind
The Daily Law by Robert Greene, Pg. 90
We all possess an inborn creative force that wants to become active. This is the gift of our Original Mind, which reveals such potential. The human mind naturally creative, constantly looking to make associations and connections between things and ideas. It wants to explore, to discover new aspects of the world, and to invent. To express this creative force is our greatest desire, and the stifling of it the source of our misery. What kills the creative force is not age or lack of talent, but our own spirit, our own attitude. We become too comfortable with the knowledge we have gained. We grow afraid of entertaining new ideas and habits of thinking, but we pay a steep price for this: our minds go dead from the lack of challenge and novelty; we reach a limit in our field and lose control over and fate because we become replaceable.
Daily Law: Do what the mind wants to do — explore, entertain, and embrace new ideas.
