the art of crafting a master explorer

George Benckenstein, in "Embrace Chaos to Conquer an Uncertain World," writes:

You Must Have Chaos Within You To Give Birth To A Dancing Star

That was written by Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche. Nietzsche loved to dance. He believed that dance was the most genuine expression of the soul; our souls being as complex of an environment as the universe itself. What I take this to mean is that success, creativity and happiness itself is more about embracing the unknown than making calculated and deliberate actions toward a preconceived outcome. I think this is his way of defining 'the passion quotient' that virtually every writer of success points to as it's basis. Find what makes you happy and you will find where your creativity and pathway to success is. Embrace your 'self' and have faith in the uncertain. It kinda goes hand-n-hand. Passion and faith in your passion is the foundational piece to overcoming any obstacle life throws at you. So now that we've 'Embraced Chaos' and found our passion, how do we pragmatically conquer our uncertain world.
