I have lived an adventurous life and I am appreciative. I’m not sure whether appreciation creates caring or caring creates appreciation but this is certainly at the core of the idea of life as a creative experience and the free will vs. determinism and the power of choice conversation. I could not live without feeling, seeing, and knowing I have some agency in creating my experience, in making choices which contribute to my imagination of the life I want to live, recognizing I have no ability to control what I am going to experience or how I am going to feel about my experience.
I do not know what degree of faculty I have to consciously and appreciatively explore my experience, or to make conscious observations on choices that could benefit my interests and contribute to my imagination of what I can do and how I can be and what I could create, but what I am doing now clearly demonstrates this is not a conversation about nature vs. nurture. It is a conversation about the creative experience of life.
We create our experience and our experience creates us. We create our story and our story creates us. We create our relationships and our relationships create us. We create our enterprise and our enterprise creates us. We create our community and our community creates us. We create our environment and our environment creates us. We create our stories and our stories create us. We create our media and our media creates us. We create our world and our world and our world creates us.
How we experience our world and how we see, think, and feel about our experience of the world is the experience we create with. Our agency comes from conscious exploration of our experience for creative connections, creative ideas, and creative opportunities, the experience of serendipity and appreciation, which change the way we see, think, and feel about our experience what we choose to do and how we choose to be in the context of the experience, the story, and the world we want to create for ourselves.
This is how we improve our ability to learn, our ability to create, and our ability to evolve. And improving our ability to learn, to create, and to evolve as a community, as humans, as humanity is how we create a new world to create a better world for our future.
