Dropping The Cliché
Updated: May 1
It’s incredible how rare original thought tends to be.
Ideas and opinions spreading through communities like pandemics in their own right.
Looking over the fence, to get a grasp of what our neighbours are doing so we can do the same
Looking at what the influencers are doing, so we too can be influenced
Reading only what Oprah tells us to read whilst listening to the same rhetoric that everyone else is tuned into.
Original derives from the root word origin.
Meaning, to go back to the beginning -
To reconnect with the roots.
With not just your own origin, but the origin of mankind.
The origins of the natural world and the order in the universe.
You see, new is not always better,
What’s hot today, may not be hot tomorrow.
Fads, come and go, so do pandemics - yet some things are forever enduring.
So look inside, drop the façade,
Drop the common lingo and dig a little deeper
Be done with the cliché’s and speak more from the heart.
Because to be original and have original thought, all you need to do is be yourself,
Because no two people are the exactly the same, we have our unique individual qualities.
This singularity is a quality embedded in our nature.
And for as long as we continue to live superficially,
And go looking for enlightenment in all the wrong places and from all the wrong people
The further we’ll be led astray,
Moving us further from the origin, further away from ourselves
And closer to becoming cliché’s ourselves.
