“To Define Is to Limit.” -Oscar Wilde

Written for and Published in The Seeds 4 Life.

I am, you are, we are, they are. What follows the beginning of those sentences sets the tone for the rest of the story. It paints the picture before the picture is complete and invites our imagination to play in the shallow ends of creativity.  

But what if the word that followed I am was, LIMITLESS? What if the word that followed you was, FREE? What if the word that followed we are was, ONE? What if the word that followed they are was, ABLE?

To what place does our imagination take us to when we use these words of potential? When we don’t classify ourselves into the micro level classifications?

How we define ourselves and others can be a view into the ever expanding universe or a glimpse into a chest deep pool.  We can see ourselves, and each other, as capable of immeasurable potential or of limited capabilities. It is the words followed by those first two powerful words… I am, you are, we are, they are…that sends our imagination to play with creativity and into all of the possibilities that await us.
