Email: Are you conventional or non-conventional? (Ireland)
Awesome question. Here’s an analogy:
Baking is a science, cooking is an art. To bake a gorgeous cake we need exact, precise measures of ingredients. No room for experimentation. In cooking, we blend ingredients, try new stuff for unique flavours, add our own personal touch.
Being conventional is like baking – fixed processes, ways of working, specific moulds. No alternatives, deviations to curiously explore. Aimed at chemical perfections.
Similarly, an extreme in cooking – much freedom, pleasure, indiscipline, lack of clarity. Balance is what I seek. Take best of both worlds! An equilibrium. Planned, structured, grounded approach of baking and creative space, stimulation, passion of cooking.
Sticking to one can’t bring genuine satisfaction, transformative experiences, inspiration for self-actualisation. A healthy tree needs a good balance of earth, air, water, fire.
Like we classify people as extremes – logical or emotional. There’s emotion in logic and logic in emotion! Both work in harmony like 2 horses of a chariot. Ultimate objective is to seek a beautiful blend that makes us ‘truly happy’ – mind, body, heart, spirit.
