Life is complicated. Sometimes it would be nice to be so singularly focused in one direction that everything else just fades in the background like these images.
“…there should be long obedience in the same direction…”
Nietzsche said, “The essential thing ‘in heaven and earth’ is . . . that there should be long obedience in the same direction; there thereby results, and has always resulted in the long run, something which has made life worth living.”
I don’t know if modern life allows absolute singular focus. However, since we are able to make choices—we can choose to spend our time in a more singular direction and get rid of distractions that are taking us further from and NOT closer to our goals. I am going to try to spend the next few months eliminating some distractions and see what comes into better focus.
