Creative Thinking

Welcome to A Conscious Mind Matters Most and Creative Thinking. It could be argued that there is little Creativity in thinking. Thinking, in most people, is usually nothing more than one's consciousness being immmersed in automatic or spontaneous verbal thought or picturing. It has little volition in it, simply stemming from habit. If you think this isn't right, just try to stop thinking and see what happens.

Difficult, isn't it.

So is this constant flow of words through the mind Creative Thinking? And will it help you in creating a happy life? I'll leave you to ponder that one.

Creativity and Silence

Creativity and Silence are complementary. It is the moments of silence between thoughts that the creative part of our being is able to put forward its ideas.  Creativity and silence, coupled with intuition, these are what engender success in what we commonly call Creative Thinking.  Ideas come to us in one timeless jump. They can be likened to a quantum leap. As an electron is said to jump from one orbit to another without passing across the space between orbits, so an idea appears in its entirety on the mirror of our consciousnes. It is instantaneous. But it won't stay, until we register it.    And, of course, when we begin to register it we have to do so with symbols; symbols which are trotted out in linear fashion, one after the other.

Mind Matters Most In Capturing Ideas

When an idea impinges on our consciousness it is the quality of our mind that makes all the difference as to whether or not that idea is recorded or lost. Mind matters most in capturing ideas. The ideas do not so much light up like a light bulb above our head, for there is no container, no light globe. There is, however, the flash, or light of that idea- given to us in its entirety - to be recorded by us with the only tool we have available to us at that moment: our trained mind.

Mind matters most because we have to be able to record that idea. We have to be either able to put it into a sentence, then perhaps follow up on a bit more detail by filling a paragraph. Or we have to be able to picture it and sketch it before it is gone. Or, if we're mathematical, to write it down as a mathematical formula.

Knowledge is Power

Knowledge is power, but we have to know how to use our knowledge. In this instance, we receive an idea. The idea has come to us not by chance. It has come because, in a way, we willed it to. We willed it by our continuing interest, our studies, maybe, or daydreams, our yearnings and longings. As many already know, the First Law of the Psyche is: "We bring into our lives that which we think about most." And what we bring in will come to us as ideas, coincidences, so-called chance meetings, oportunities and the like.

Albert Einstein said that, " God does not play dice with the universe." If this is true, and I believe it is, then there is no such thing as luck or chance. Everything happen because of the application of Univeral Laws. So we need to understand a little about these laws.  Knowledge is power when we can understand and apply what we know. 

Silence is Golden

To reiterate, knowledge is power, but we have to know how to use our knowledge. In this instance, we receive an idea. The idea has come to us not by chance. It has come because, in a way, we willed it to. We willed it to by our continuing interest, our studies, maybe, or daydreams, our yearnings and longings. As many already know, the First Law of the Psyche is: "We bring into our lives that which we think about most." And what we bring in will come to us as ideas, coincidences, so-called chance meetings, oportunities and the like.

Albert Einstein said that, " God does not play dice with the universe." If this is true, and I believe it is, then there is no such thing as luck or chance. Everything happen because of the application of Univeral Laws. So we need to understand a little about these laws.

Creativity comes via Intuition

Creativity comes via intuition. The creative ideas come out of the "no thing" into the "something" but do not become "something" or "some thing" until we capture the idea - that has been said. We widen the increase the chances of our receiving idea in proportion to our wide range of interests. As the famous Scottish philosoper, Thomas Carlisle stated, "That man is most original who can adapt from the greatest number of resourses- so study widely. Don't fall into the trap of specializing. At least, not too early in your lifetime.

So how do you become creative: Study widely. Be careful what you habitually think about, you could manifest things you don't want in your life. Discipline your mind. And allow plenty of time for quiet introspection and - even more important - moment of complete stillness of both body and mind. In creating a happy life, a conscious mind matters most.
