Description Prescription Action

We have the dichotomy: the “is” and the “ought”
Aristotle presented a triangle: the true, the beautiful, the good
I connect “is” with “the true.” “Ought” is “the good.” That leaves the beautiful.
The beautiful must be the next step: action that comes from awareness of “is” and “ought.”

In today’s world, misunderstanding, fear, and suspicion is high. In order to act we must (there’s an ought) fall into our bodies to connect with feelings. Constriction must (ought) be recognized. Recognized, it naturally melts. There is an “is,” a truth. Then, from within that melted constriction can come action.
