going beyond information…

“Argument is conclusive… but… it does not remove doubt, so that the mind may rest in the sure knowledge of the truth, unless it finds it by the method of experimentation.”                   – Roger Bacon

What I find important in the quote above is that it implies seeking understanding of knowledge by doing. “Argument is conclusive” – it comes to a conclusion. However, it doesn’t always transform the operating belief of the individuals. The same is true of reading another’s work, or trying a specific technique or style. There is truth in it, but we cannot know it fully merely by accepting it. It requires that we take it further by seeking to put these things into practice that we may find the true knowledge. It bolsters our trust, our faith, in the truth of that knowledge so that we can live in it without question or doubt.

Where can you as a creative put this concept into practice in your work?


About Kirk

I enjoy life and have been blessed with many different experiences. An eye for the underlying truths that surround me accompanies a growing faith in Christ and God that informs my world and reveals small miracles and beauty surrounding me every day. This is the major reason I felt led to start Dance of 2 Companies - a dance studio where I can share all the little amazing things God's taught me through life as a dancer - about myself, about others, about marriage... and most importantly, about Him.
