Disney Heroism

    Jobs, like Walt Disney,  was a hero, for heroes triumph over gratuitousness: whether dying or not, a hero is a hero for fulfilling a task, for "connecting the dots". 
Heroes don't beat death, but its definitiveness. 
 The transcendence of heroism is to render gratuitousness worse 
than death : 
to show that if death is not 
the worst of all things, 
it cannot be final. 
Heroism is the simultaneous assertion of eternity and meaningfulness.

Mystical Disney

     Mystical is he who sees meaning in mere action, mission in just living, soul in personality and his own, true will in what he discovers to be the will of God.

Disney Meaning

Walt Disney joined past and future
Artifice and Nature
Technology and Fantasy
Unpredictability and Planning
Passion and Control
Pungency and Fun
Physical World and Soul
Disney animation is the power of turning meaning, that which is abstract, into visibility

Disney Charisma

    The inspiration Walt gave his team was courage; the right to be oneself.
           Charisma is the power to inspire, in others, the right to be themselves.

Disney Decency

Walt Disney's search for excellence was the unforgiving effort of constant self-overcoming.
    Walt Disney's search was the eternal fight to  keep his heart clean.
What Disney really gave the world was his measuring up to himself.
