Creating vs Consuming
The ever-foreboding question that stirs the Ego and rests the Mind. To create or consume ? That is the question. A balance is usually the solution. Except the exception in this case is that one side of the equation is limitless, or has the potential to be so, at least. That is the process of Creation, especially that which pulls down from the Highest of Sources in order to manifest in this physical reality, well, whatever you want really. But to consume, ahh, to consume, that is another subject entirely. Consumption is the bane of modern day man, society and civilization. For there is a limitless supply of material now to consume (thanks Internet), yet what is so often overlooked is the fact that the consumption process consumes energy in stark juxtaposition to the creation process that creates it. Obvious in writing, but rarely considered in reality.
But here is your chance to consider: do I consume today, or do I create ? Do I make what I desire or read more and more about it so I know it 'firsthand'. A lie, I say -- nothing can be known firsthand except that which is created by one's own hands. This applies to this medium: Ello. So much to consume. So much credible, edible, edificable material to consume. Yet, is it worth doing so ?
The answer to that is yours to ponder / take / live.
