Greatness Is A Transitory Experience

“Greatness is a transitory experience. It is never persistent. … The person who experiences greatness must have a feeling for the myth he is in. He must reflect what is projected upon him…. Without this quality, even occasional greatness will destroy a man.”- Frank Herbert

Greatness is not permanent. Nothing is permanent in life. Everything is changing. You can enjoy greatness if you do not attach yourself to it. We find it difficult to let things go because we are so attached to it. We love our old things. We like to keep them. But to really enjoy what we have, we must detach ourselves from our things. Things are things. They are not human beings. Let them go.

They are not human beings. Greatness is good, but it can isolate you. It can isolate you if you don’t know how to use it to your advantage. The best way to remain great is to forget about greatness. Do not be trapped by your greatness. Do not let your greatness control your life. Do not let your greatness destroy your life. Frank Herbert said, “The power to destroy a thing is the absolute control over it.” Even if you think you are not a great person, you are a great person. Think about who you are? Think about who created you?

The Soul Of A Journey Is Liberty

Do you really have the freedom to do whatever you want? Do you have the freedom to pursue your dreams? Do you have the freedom to live your own life? Because a real life starts with liberty. If you are not free, you can’t pursue your life. No liberty, no life. Liberty is life.

We want freedom. We want liberty. But are we ready to take responsibility for our freedom? Freedom means responsibility. Before we ask for freedom, ask yourself, “Can I handle my freedom?” If you can handle your freedom, you can pursue your dreams. If you can’t handle your freedom, you can’t pursue your dreams.

According to William Hazlitt, “The soul of a journey is liberty, perfect liberty, to think, feel, do just as one pleases.” You can pursue your life with passion only if you have the perfect liberty to be yourself, to do your things, to live your life, and to think for yourself. If you don’t have that- your perfect liberty, it will be difficult for you to make your dreams come true. Dreams need liberty.

If you want your dreams to come true, take full responsibility for your liberty. Without liberty, dreams die. Do you want your dreams to die?
