Something from Nothing
This is one of those days that I love and dread. I sit to write and I don’t have any ideas; I have nothing to say. I can always put off writing, but the love part is excited – what will come out of my fingers? – As if my brain were located in my fingers.
There’s really so much to write about – money, career, children, grandchildren, sustainability, dreams, goals,… So why am I being foolish, thinking of nothing.
Okay – Here’s the magic I want. Some of you will call and ask to be clients – you trust me and you know that with me you will leapfrog into what’s next for you in your life.
I am making a collage that will express my goals in such a way that I am inspired, in love and pulling my goals to me. I’ll do the same for my vision. It looks like play – it is play and art and fun. I recommend it.
But, if you have nothing at all to create, then perhaps you create yourself.
To know, is to know that you know nothing. That is the meaning of true knowledge.
Everything is something you decide to do, and there is nothing you have to do.
What is new in the world? Nothing. What is old in the world? Nothing. Everything has always been and will always be.
The Nothing Place
This story is about a nothing place.
It was nowhere, in a nothing town.
In the nothing town there were nothing houses.
And nothing buildings. And nothing stores. And nothing streets
In this nothing town there were nothing people and nothing dogs and cats. There were nothing birds and nothing horses and nothing flowers.
In this nothing town nothing happened.
One day a new person came to the nothing place.
The new person went up to somebody and asked
“What sort of town is this?”
And that somebody said,
“It is a nothing town. Everything in it is nothing.”
The new person said,
“That’s silly. You are something.”
The next day something happened in the nothing town,
On a building, someone had written in bright red paint
YOU ARE SOMETHING
