Live by Your Own Code

Live by your own code.

William Blake sums it up best when he says:

“…every man must create his own system, or be enslaved by another… my business is to create…”

And, Bruce Lee…

“Research your own experience, absorb what is useful, reject what is not. Add what is essentially your own.”

No one really knows anything.

Everyone is an idiot genius.

This is exceedingly great news because it means that you’re free.

Creating your own system empowers you and gives you a sense of agency in this unfathomable and infinite world we live in rather than just a blind follower of someone else’s made up system.

“In a word, man must create his own essence: it is in throwing himself into the world, suffering there, struggling there, that he gradually defines himself.” ― Jean Paul Sartre
