What is the greatest power in the universe; the ability to create. If one were to look at the power of God in the Bible, the first verse is “In the beginning God created…” People today are drowning in existential mediocrity! Many lose hope in the pursuit of money and fame, rather than seeking spiritual enlightenment.

As Socrates once said, “know thyself.” In the 21st century we’re bombarded by advertising, which has everyone thinking the same thoughts. People are completely unaware their individuality is being stripped from them.

One of my favorite quotes is from Ray Bradbury who was a visionary.

“You don’t have to burn books to destroy a culture. Just get people to stop reading them.”

If you haven’t already read Fahrenheit 451, I strongly recommend it. Keep in mind that it was written before headphones, big screen TVs, and the internet. All of these inventions were prophesied by the author.

Today, we need to connect with literature more than ever! My goal in writing this blog is to help people exercise their own creativity, connect with ancient and contemporary man through the written word, and be mindful of influences pervading our society.

    Reading literature from the past also helps us to realise that we aren’t the brilliant “enlightened” beings we so often think we are…

    Thank you for visiting my blog 🙂
