I have a mystical solution to your dilemma if you are searching for a creative solution. It comes from the Rosicrucians and the lips of many great men in history. It comes from the biographies of creative scientists and has evolved with humanity, according to John Gray.
In a nut shell it is: GO TAKE A WALK!
Now lets review the sagacity of my remark. Many creative ideas are acknowledged to have come at a moment when a scientist, artist or writer sought to escape from a difficult task by going fishing or riding on a trolley car.
In “Men Are From Mars And Women Are From Venus“, John Gray reminds us that men evolved learning to communicate while on the run hunting down animals or in battle. There is something about the motion of the body, for men, that liberates the mind from its jail of common thoughts.
The Rosicrucians teach that to solve a dilemma you must plant the concept, you are struggling with, clearly in your mind’s fertile ground. You do so by first envisioning it in its most simple and vivid manner. To do so, you think about it over and over until you understand it and all its ramifications fully. Now make one clear, vivid, simple picture of the issue in your mind and then forget about it and go to sleep.
In each case we take advantage of the genius of our subconscious. Perhaps it searches the Cosmic Consciousness or, for the less mystically inclined, your life’s learning. In any case…. it usually works for me! 🙂
In either case, you are getting to best know your problem and then distracting your conscious mind from it. In one case you do so by walking, running or perhaps riding a bicycle. In the other you put you conscious mind to sleep. Where does the answer come from? Where does creativity come from?
I have my answer…… I wonder what your is?
