Nothing New Under the Sun
How current writers and authors use inspirational content from beyond the grave to impact their messages today.
“What has been will be again,
what has been done will be done again
there is nothing new under the sun.”
I grab my favorite mug full-of-coffee and forgo all other actives today so that I can do what I love to do most-write. This article is a tribute to the many inspirational and thought provoking authors I’ve read that, continually, fuel my wordy motivation to paint the world with words.
I constantly see words and quotes scattered all over social media, and in print, that are from my favorite authors without giving them their due credit. Matter of fact, all of the authors that I cherish sit close to me as I glance back and fourth from my overly stocked bookshelf to the words on my screen. It seems that their words encourage me to continue telling the world where I learned such valuable information from. I can't, nor would I want to, learn about life on my own. My experiences are mine, but I sought guidance and wisdom to navigate the terrain. Just as I would not go deep into the woods without a compass, I did not journey into my spiritual awakening without the proper spiritual tools to guide my way.
Science has proven we are part of a collective consciousness, and in that realm of enlightenment, I have created a literary map that I refer to for help when I feel my inspiration running in circles. Most of these treasured and legendary writers have evolved back into stardust while my current personal favorites are still alive as I travel the countryside of consciousness, recovery, sobriety, and the ever evolving journey of self-improvement.
There really is nothing new under the sun, especially when it comes to words. How we shape our words to express our experiences has to come form somewhere and mostly they come from other authors, which is why their words can STILL motivate us to be greater than we could have ever imagined. Words are powerful and the right words can fill even the most hollow hearts with hope. Now, put a solid plan of application behind them, and you’ll be just like Napoleon Hill or one of the many authors who changed our lives spanning many generations of literary geniuses. Think and Grow Rich is one the most powerful tools in any self-help gurus arsenal, I guarantee it!
“We are drowning in information while we are starving for wisdom. The world henceforth will be run by synthesizers, people able to put together the right information at the right time, think critically about it, and make important choices wisely.” ~E. O. Wilson
