Songs to Invoke Knowledge

Knowledge is a powerful phenomenon. Not only does it breed your perception of the world around you, but it feeds the reception of the world to you. History is often riddled with conundrums that deny certain people their inherent place in the world, even the foundation that lays root to the essence that acknowledges their very existence.

There is a quote often attributed to theoretical physicist Albert Einstein that states, "Everybody is a genius. But, if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid."

If we must be fish out of water, then let us also be fishers into ourselves. Let us fish the truth of self-identity and self-worth. Let us fish the promise of tomorrow that we can grow from more than what we have seeded today. Let us not fish for insufficiency, when we fail to climb a tree. Rather, let us fish for sufficiency, when we succeed to climb a mountain.

Either way, we have risen to profound heights that stand as pillars of self-awareness and self-discovery.

Einstein was also attributed to state, "Imagination is more important than knowledge."

So, let us imagine for a moment this were true. All of us possess the ability to dictate the evolution of time. Therefore, it is our duty and responsibility to make use of time wisely and efficiently. Always strive to form new ideas and concepts, and use the canvas of your own life to colorize the life of others.

Every second that is yet to come is already earmarked for history. If you decide to fabricate your page in history, then you run the risk of degrading the overall chapter co-written by others. Knowledge requires more than what you give it alone. In fact, it demands it.

Knowledge requires the nurturing of a parental unit, the circumstance of a village, and the respect of an elder. So, let us collectively move forward, knowing that dignity follows in our footsteps.

The journey continues right here and everywhere.
