When we have an epiphany, a spark, the lightbulb goes off in our brain and the neurons connect. Although the love that rages within is a flame that can fuel anything with the potential to destroy everything else. With a new skill developed we become more efficient, the flow of our actions and movements become more precise and intricate. In the same way water can fill in any gaps or space, our skill emulates the same comparison for filling in our gaps. On the cover of the book, lighting, water and fire represent these possible moments and sections. The sections follow the elemental metaphors, truth in electricity, skill in water/flow and love in our hearts. Elements are powerful enough in themselves, a lightning storm, a flowing river or the fiery sun to inspire us when we look upon them. Within ourselves the spark of truth, the flow of skill, and the burning love we have are timeless concepts in life that are always beautiful and never lose value.
A description of the book can be summarized as a tapestry of moments. Moments like a quilt where every individual piece matters but it's when they are combined it becomes something special. Moments happen not when things are right and wrong but when things are different but then become understood. Geniuses can be awkward and social savantes can be morons. One possessing knowledge the other possessing skill but rarely possesses both. Yet if you combine a skillful and knowledgeable person, often you end up with a psychopath because they have no love generated in themselves. Whether intelligence in truth, wisdom in skill or happiness in love these are all traits we should possess. Powerful moments of love can make a psychopath feel, powerful moments of truth can make a jock think and powerful moments of skill can help a genius maneuver in social interactions.
"1 Minute 4 1 Moment" attempts to destroy barriers and create bridges in their place, through a plethora of perspectives and moments. Barriers must be broken or climbed, but bridges only require a connection. With empathic connection and intellectual understanding bridges are built, without pain of going against the grain when it comes to a barrier. The greatest bridge humans are capable of is language and written word. Our word is our life, but when we write it becomes our legacy, a bridge that can be walked upon by others even after our death. Built from legacy and life, written word and word, "1 Minute 4 1 Moment" is a collection of bridges that takes us to new places. These new places are to have moments we never could have in our own world.
