Infinite Thinking

possibilities

Have you ever noticed that when you’re worried about something, all you can think about are your problems?

Then sometimes, out of the blue, someone comes in with a fresh perspective and your “unsolvable” problems suddenly have DOZENS of solutions.

The good news is this: you can be one of those “fresh perspective” people.

This may come as a surprise to some people but we get to choose what kind of world we want to live in!

You can focus on finding problems and live in the realm of “something is wrong,” OR you can focus on solutions and live in the realm of “infinite possibilities.”

People who live in Possibility-ville are known (and sought out) as problem solvers and visionaries.

They still have troubles like anyone else but they find their way out of those troubles a whole lot faster and can easily help others do the same.

The most fun part of focusing on possibilities is that they are truly infinite … so you have permission to get silly and play!

You can start throwing the most ridiculous, fantastic, “left-field” ideas on the table (using your childlike imagination), and one of them will inevitably spark a new idea that will give you the very answers you need.

Seeds for Meditation

The tendency of people to be fearful of those experiences they call apparitions or assign to the “spirit world,” including death, has done infinite harm to life. All these things so naturally related to us have been driven away through our daily resistance to them, to the point where our capacity to sense them has atrophied … Fear of the unexplainable has not only impoverished our inner lives, but also diminished relations between people; these have been dragged, so to speak, from the river of infinite possibilities and stuck on the dry bank where nothing happens. For it is not only sluggishness that makes human relations so unspeakably monotonous, it is the aversion to any new, unforeseen experience we are not sure we can handle.

— Rainer Maria Rilke
