People often mistake that
We need to feel confident in order to do something with competence;
We need to feel loveable in order to love;
We need to feel good before we do any good;
We need to know before we act, and
We need to find the passion before we become good at a something.
It certainly helps if we do. But often, we are mistaken. We have put the carriage before the horse.
We simply need to become competent at something in order to build confidence;
We need to give love in order to feel love;
We need to do some good before we feel good;
We need to act in order to know, and
We need to follow our curiosity before we find our passion.
In this case, we have put the horse before the carriage. And this allows movement.
We are to learn not just to think on our feet, but to think with our feet.
There is wisdom in our feet. We are not designed to be sedentary creatures. We are designed to grow, and growing takes place when we move, both in our inner lives and our mortal flesh.
I look at my 3-year-old daughter. She thinks with her feet by trying things, even if it means that she might get a scolding or two for testing our limits.
Composers, movie directors, performers, writers and storytellers know the importance of creating dynamic movement in order to an experience to come alive.
We are designed to move and be moved. No horse with the carriage in front is going to get very far.
