Journey Sans Judgment

Meaning in Journey

The journey does not represent me. I do not represent the journey. I simply proceed from the basic premise that the human capability of theorizing is integral to intelligent practice. That said, theory and practice are not exclusive properties; rather, theories and distinctions are guideposts or maps for finding our way in the world. I agree with the principle that, there is no question of theory versus practice but rather of intelligent practice versus uninformed, stupid practice.

I'm still wrestling with the notion of intellectualizing practice instead of practicalizing intelligence. As a ribbon of travel or a weave or fabric, theory is an abstraction from direct experience and ultimately must return to inform experience in turn.
