Inspiration? surely inspiration cannot exist without a purpose or a goal?
If a thing inspires me, it does so to enable me to do something, achieve something, or to move forward. There has to be that resonance between the inspiration and my perceived purpose or goal(s).
I can accept that inspiration can lead one to new purposes or new goals but there is still that resonance.
What I ask myself, though, is inspiration merely one-direction? Should I be seeking inspiration for myself or should I seek to inspire others? I’d think there is a place for both but all too often I read about seeking inspiration for one’s self and it makes me wonder.
