More than activity and reflection

Activity and reflection should ideally complement and support each other. Action is blind, reflection impotent.*
(Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi)

But being creative is never an end; it is a means to something else.**
(Austin Kleon)

When activity and reflection are brought together there is the possibility of change.

A change of mind.

A change of heart,

A change of direction.

We can change.

Others can change.

Cultures can change.

The world can change.

Even our god can change.

The real product of today is not the activity or the reflection alone, but the change that can take place.

Even transformation.

(*From Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi’s Flow.)
