259. the sunflower’s ought

the sunflower said, “everyone should love the sun.”

the guru said, “if you think that everyone should love the sun, then you have a moral imperative to convince them of that. you should preach about the sun. you should construct persuasive essays. you should found a school for the praise of the sun, and try to spread that love for others. once you have discovered a moral imperative, then you must struggle each day to promote that moral imperative, for doing anything less is to fail that moral imperative.”

the sunflower smiled up at the sun.
