“The more difficulties one has to encounter, within and without, the more significant and the higher in inspiration his life will be.”
Inspired? I was kind of hoping for a massive impact with that one.
Today this hyperactive, obnoxious blogger of yours will dwell(rather brood) on the subject of inspiration. Inspiration, A term Google defines as – The process of being mentally stimulated to do or feel something. Oddly that made me think of electrocution.
At some time in our life’s we are all inspired to do, to be and sometimes to have but not always for the right reasons. I was once so inspired by a report I read online that I copied every word of it for my English essay, ironically the report turned out to be about internet plagiarism.
Unreal things also have the power to inspire, case in point, the movie industry. Broadway and Bollywood fans have been inspired for eons now. They all hope to fall in love through a song and dance sequence so that they too can have the same happy ending as their favorite musicals(I don’t blame them, Broadway is so realistic).
There was a time when the masses were inspired by a select few, today everyone wants to set an inspiration. From drug addled musicians to controversial politicians, every one wants to leave behind a legacy. But what do you do when no one wants to be the inspired. Every wants to be different now, have their own identities. In such times is it ideal to insist our ideologies on others?
This is one question we must answer for ourselves. What do you think?
