In nearly every sliver of warming light my conscious turns away, averting its gaze to the cold comfort of darkness. Even amidst its enchanting matras, it fears the light of progression for all the change and new consideration that it brings. The friction of evolution, the uncertainty of progression, the possibility to fail. The progressive ideal is easy to recite, to echo out in self justification, but the embodiment of such is a far different undertaking.
In this life I will dedicate to progression and personal growth. I will move through challenges and unexpected encounters with vigor and malleability. I will transform conflict to knowledge and use it against those who emerge in opposition.
I will approach interaction with others with open mind and compassion. Approaching encounters as gifts, I will glean unseen perspective from another’s eyes. Leaping from collective experience, I will vault into the sea of discovery far beyond the limits of one.
The dedication to following the ever expanding path of personal growth consistently brings one outside of the realm of comfortable understanding and across landscapes of the unknown. That is in fact the essence of exploration, pushing known limits to discover the new horizons and fill open eyes with sights unseen, forever changing the perspective of your previous view.
