There is no right way to believe.
Some of us hold that divine reason has ordained our life to serve a purpose in the overall economy of the cosmos. Some of us are completely free of the binding illusion that their fate is written in the stars. Some of us feel like riffraff on the tide of history destined to be washed away into a whirlpool of meaninglessness.
Fine. Let’s not shame each other for our differences around these things.
People should be able to believe anything they want, including nothing.
My argument is, there is one thing we can all agree on, and that’s the idea of potential. Meaning, each of us has parts of ourselves where our greatest value lives. Each of us carries within us the fullness of our undeveloped powers. And each of us has at least some desire to offer that quality as a gift to others.
Let’s start there.
Because in a world where our differences seem to divide us more than they unite us, we desperately need something to rally around.
Why not let that thing be potential? And not just our potential, but other people’s.
Chambers famously wrote that if you never learn to pour yourself out, other people will not get their horizon enlarged through you.
That’s a good goal. To pour our potential out, trusting that the people around will be inspired to do the same. Regardless of what they believe.
LET ME ASK YA THIS…
How are you increasing the potential at which your potential operates?
