From the book the Way of Serenity:
“Changing the things we can requires not only courage but also vision. We need to have a sense not only of where we are but also of where we are going. When Michelangelo, one of the greatest sculptures of all time, stood before a huge block of marble, he didn’t just start chipping away with his chisel to see what would happen. He first would form an idea in his mind of what he wanted the sculpture to look like. He always had in his mind’s eye the final result he was looking for.”
Whether we are creating a work of art, or writing a story, we need to have at least an idea of where we want to go with it.
The same is true of us in our daily lives. Yes, we can be thrown off course, from sources beyond our control, but if we have a vision we can begin to chisel away at the marble covering the masterpiece of our lives.
