A New Kind of Pencil
A wise man once said:
If you want to know who is a truly creative person, an inventor in whatever field they are in, ask a group of people to create a new kind of pencil. Most of them will visualize what a pencil looks like and will imagine, on that basis, what it could become.
The truly creative person will visualize a blank space, and in that space will exist the question: What is a pencil? From that empty space, a whole new concept can be born.
So it is with invention and with life. To release the past, to become perpetually new, to be present in the present, visualize an empty space and enter it. Here, you can become anything, here you can become who you truly are, here something new can be born.
