If you’re not a creator, you’re a consumer
Humans have one special ability that computers will never be able to do, and that is the ability to come up with ideas. Sure computers can come up with songs and news articles, but that’s all rehashing things that have come before. No, humans have the ability to come up with new ideas.
As humans, it is our job to make use of these ideas. It is our job to put these ideas into action through creation. These ideas do not belong to us anyway, they belong to the universe.
In other words, we are all vessels of creation. And if you think otherwise, you’re wrong, and what’s worse, that means you’re just a consumer. Take your creativity and put it into the world, everyday. Don’t just consume.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Hi, I’m Tim Bunting AKA the Kiwi Yamabushi, a New Zealander who became a Yamabushi Ascetic in the Dewa Sanzan mountains of north Japan. I’m part of the Yamabushido team, and we host life-altering Yamabushi training on the Dewa Sanzan (website link). People come to us for the ultimate mindfulness experience, to reach the next level, or simply connect with nature and themselves.
I’m on a mission to summit all 100 Famous Mountains of Yamagata Prefecture to spread the splendour of this fabulous location, and in dedication to all those who lost their lives out in nature, including my father.
On my daily blog I post thoughts of a practicing Yamabushi that I hope people can use to better themselves and live as fulfilling a life as possible.
