When we live in denial, we confuse our own rejection of the truth with our own uniqueness and creativity. The truth is every bit as unique as we are. Truth defines us. We can’t redefine truth anymore than someone else can redefine us.
Individual creativity seeks to learn which things we can and cannot define, from having the courage to express the ideas we can.
Foolishness is the rejection of truth’s uniqueness. When our own foolishness fails, we always think the universe is trying to manipulate us, when, maybe, the universe, and its Author, are trying to teach us something.
