Quotables #2: Natural Born Storytellers

“The constant assertion of belief is an indication of fear.”—Jiddu Krishnamurti

Human beings are wonderful story tellers and story creators. We used to tell/create by the light of the fire but now we do it by the light of our computer screens.

It’s interesting that the brain is actually hardwired to create a narrative wherever a person happens to find themselves. For this reason we have this tremendous capacity to both convince ourselves that things are there or forces are at work that aren’t actually (and never were) there.
