A visionary is not one who just sees the pure, clean, self-evident truth. A visionary is one who commits to that truth and follows wherever it leads.
Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “The time is always right to do the right thing.”
This is not complicated. The question is not whether you can see the horizon. The question is: Are you willing to steadfastly go where it leads?
Dr King also said, “If a man hasn’t discovered something he will die for, he isn’t fit to live.”
I would also suggest, “If a man hasn’t discovered something he will die for, he isn’t alive.”
Furthermore I would suggest, “If a man hasn’t died, he isn’t alive.”
Death here is not the physical kind.
The only true life comes from the death of death… the death of the life of pettiness, of smallness, of pride, of fear, of what some refer to as the ego or small self. This is attained through commitment to following what you see in the horizon.
I implore you to live.
