Increase your necessity, so that you may increase your perception

Necessity is the mother of invention.

It is the ability to heighten necessity that empowers invention.

“New organs of perception come into being as a result of necessity.  Therefore, O man, increase your necessity, so that you may increase your perception.” [Sufi sage Julaluddin Rumi (1207-1273)]
