Creativity and imagination
What is the universal solution for any problem? If I could narrow it down as much as I could I would say creativity, abstract thinking and imagination.
If you prefer it on video click here, if not keep reading.
Let me explain. When we are faced with any mental blockage, any emotional trauma or even medical condition. The one thing that everyone agrees is that the cure is in your head. How many times you’ve heard some doctor saying “He put up a fight with that cancer” or “let’s hope his mood improves” or
Because no matter how many drugs and new technology we can come up with if the person doesn’t have the mindset of getting better, it won’t happened.
But why is that? Is this positive thinking, positive psychology or law of attraction thing everyone talks about?
No. Is actually the power or creativity, the power of our imagination and the abstract thinking that can eventually give answers to we couldn’t find in our physical world, in other people, from other people, from religion or education.
The only answers that are a complete match to us are created with our imagination. That is why I believe dogma is damaging, because it doesn’t allow humans to abstract thinking on their own. But only 1 abstract thought that should be valid for all.
But what is Abstract thinking?
In philosophical terminology, abstraction is the thought process wherein ideas are distanced from objects. Moreover, abstraction is used in the arts as a synonym for abstract art in general. Strictly speaking, it refers to art unconcerned with the literal depiction of things from the visible world. In the 20th century the trend toward abstraction coincided with advances in science, technology, and changes in urban life, eventually reflecting an interest in psychoanalytic theory.Wikipedia
Imagine your abstract thoughts, as a car you are driving into this world. Like the thought that takes you to a place of peace. Does it make you feel better and more energetic to think there is life after death? Go for it. What about thinking that we become monkeys or bunnies after we die? If it works for you well done. Believing in a God up in the sky that takes care of you makes you feel comforted. Go for it but know that is just one of the roads that your abstract car can take. It has millions of other options.
The fear of death is also an abstract thought that your car is taking you on.
Be the driver of that car. If being fearful of death doesn’t make you feel good change the lane. Take your thoughts where after death we reunite with the loved ones. Take your car to the lane where we all become energies and collapse within each other. Who cares? It’s all in your head. Create. Whatever makes you survive.
But be conscious that you are creating it. Not someone else.
We have this machine at our disposal. Stop buying other people abstract thoughts. Create your own. Personalized for you. Tailor made to make you and nobody else good. That make you less fearful of anything, feel empowered, feel your own boss, your own judge, your own master.
Use that machine, use your imagination to exit difficult moments. To exit diseases, the blockages in life and ultimately depression. We have a physical body that can’t exit the world unless we die. But this machine can take us anywhere anytime if we need it. In your imagination and creativity lays the exit of any situation. They are your vehicle for exit without exiting this world.
