are intrinsically connected
to what’s happening on a collective scale.
When the world’s at lower footings,
any personal ascension
beyond any certain point’s of no avail.
Downing others to rise higher
only lowers the foundation;
indirectly this will cost you when you gain.
Only when we lift each other
can we benefit together
from the rising of our shared communal plane.
Jerry Corstens is a visionary dreamer with a blind passion for self-reflection and contemplating life, a self-proclaimed philosopher with poetic ambitions. He’s serious about helping people with the insights he gathered, but playful in the way he communicates his wisdom. It made him leave a career as environmental engineer behind, in favor of becoming a personal development coach and thought-provoking writer.
