First We Make the Best Beautiful
More words for a distracted world
I ended up browsing in a book shop while waiting for a friend. At the second best spot in the shop was the spirituality/mindfulness section, and right in front of my eyes a book called First We Make the Best Beautiful. Or so I thought. It’s real title was First We Make the Beast Beautiful. But I was too excited about my version of the title that I bounced out of the shop and hurried down to the coffee shop in order to note down my thoughts.
Making Best is a Beast
The book, by Sarah Wilson, is actually about anxiety. It seems fitting though, although I have no intention of belittling anxiety, but in our distracted world it seems most of us have some sort of anxiety and to get past that anxiety we have to stop making best and start making beautiful. Making best is a beast. It’s a distraction. It’s measuring for measuring’s sake, not for a higher purpose. First We Make the Best Beautiful. Let’s move beyond best, find new values and let them lead us. First We Make the Best Beautiful.
It’s real title seems like a fitting slogan to this new distracted world. First We Make the Beast Beautiful. Let’s battle this big technological beast, take it by its horns and tame it. First We Make the Beast Beautiful.
