The Obstacle Is the Way

Sun Feb 7, 2016, 6:06 PM

"The obstacle is the way." That is the title of a book. It is more of a book about overcoming personal struggles, as opposed to taking advantage of external events, but there are a few business examples. Regardless, the spirit of the phrase is acutely applicable to creatives, because creatives have the imagination and drive to see the way and to forge ahead.

Here is a stellar example: This teen came up with a low-cost way to get plastic out of our oceans. He says, "The oceanic currents moving around is not an obstacle. It's a solution. Why move through the oceans if the oceans can move through you? … Let the rotating currents do their work." The obstacle is the way.  Source article and video.

When you see others asking the same questions or making the same complaints, over and over again, congratulations, you have identified an opportunity. A roadblock, a source of inefficiency, or a lack of something can be the perfect chance and motivation to invent something new or to fill a marketing void. Do something with it, be it for altruism or for personal profit. It doesn’t have to be something monumental, either, just a solution!

In a time when so many people are out of shape, in debt, disconnected, and unhappy, the ability to think creatively and the courage to put it into motion is key. Energy, when there are attempts to block it, will find a way around, following the new path of least resistance, like a lively river going around an old dam, brittle and crumbling over time. If you are passionate about something, let your energy do this. Circumvent outmoded misconceptions, ignore or distance yourself from negativity. Be proactive and keep moving.

Always keep this expression in the back of your mind and be on alert for opportunities. :painter:

:painter: Welcome to my page of SGA Wraith fanart. Spreading the message of inclusivity and justice, told through color and light.
Beauty comes in all forms and we are all more alike than different.

:relax:A place where Wraith are shown as persons, not two-dimensional cannon fodder, in relaxed, thoughtful, romantic, or heroic settings in their own culture and environment. Starvation and genocide and wrong and Wraith deserve alternative energy sources. Their culture, style, environmentally clean bio-organic technology, and ambient hiveship lighting are fascinating to think about and to paint with vivid colors.

:love:My favorite Wraith is the one from Todd's delegation, called Bullseye by fans. I support Todd and his crew doing something by trying to generate alternative feeding solutions-- the same as I support people who try their best to do the same for all beings here on Earth, in real life, letting go of old myths, looking for cooperation and nonviolent solutions, and letting others be free from harm, so that we are the best versions of ourselves we can be. Just like businesses which benchmark and get new technology and methods from trade swaps, it is good for individuals to aim for the best choices and trade-up too. "The more I learn, the better I do, and each day I'm doing better than the last." -Tracey Stewart.

I stand up and speak on behalf of all beings. All oppressions are interrelated (racism, sexism, heterosexism, speciesism, etc.). If you think it is wrong to hurt other animals, then you already believe in being vegan too. We have everything to gain by choosing kindness and a brighter world for all and it is never too late to start a kind legacy! Former vivisectionists, butchers, and slaughterhouse workers are some of the best voices for veganism out there. Let nothing hold you back. Let's boycott cruelty together and support one another in being positive and healthy.

:bulletblack:The "humane" myth website, exposing industry lies: www.humanemyth.org/index.htm
"Humane slaughter" is an oxymoron, just like slavery is still wrong even if slaves are "treated like family." There is no right way to do a morally wrong thing and it is wrong to participate in oppression of any kind. We say we want a peaceful world, we say we hate violence, we say we hate cruelty. Let’s live those values by taking violence off our plates.

:star:Blocking: Troll posts will be deleted and trolls will be blocked and reported to dA staff. I'm here to offer support, help, or answer questions of genuine curiosity, but will remove comments defending or debating any type of use/abuse/violence/discrimination/hate to any beings and will also immediately block such people.

Hi! I'm playing around with WordPress to get a recipe and money saving blog up, hopefully in a few weeks, and after that thinking of making a some other social media account for inspirational quote collections. I might make the latter here, because I like having comments disabled and Pinterest doesn't seem to have that option. How about you? :)
