To have a strong vision forward, one needs a strong inner vision: knowing one’s strengths and weaknesses, desires and fears. This self knowledge no matter the depth is what sheds light upon the path forward, not only for ourselves but others. Building the future starts with building the self.
It is here that design plays a big part, where the creative mind bridges forward momentum, inspiring the necessary dialogue between the self, where we are and where we hope to go. The creative arenas all have the inherent capacity to inspire, be it a calming moment or political change. This is dependent upon our engagement in the surrounding environment or the object at hand.
The capacity for change is in direct proportion to our belief systems: doctrines and dogmas. But this is not to say that change cannot happen within our own built environments, we are in fact the architects of our own realities. What we have created, we can then, rebuild, dissect and expand upon. It is this what the creative mind does: massages and vacillates our vision forward.
If we are to create the needed changes in our social well being, we first need to accept that change is paramount at this point in time. To move forward we must step back and view the bigger picture, eyes wide open with clarity of vision and deeds of intention. What the eye sees, the mind can change.
