“Sometimes it takes a good fall to really know where you stand.” ~ Hayley Williams
Floating on a cloud through life does not a character make. It is when we fall off the cloud and pick ourselves up again that we find out how much power we really have. So we all need a good fall once in awhile to find out how strong we are and to tap into the creativity that builds the foundation that will break our fall the next time.
“Deep in the human unconscious is a pervasive need for a logical universe that makes sense. But the real universe is always one step beyond logic.” ~ Frank Herbert
Sometimes…things just do not make sense. And that can throw us off and confuse us. It can make us question our ability for critical thinking, which comes from our logical side. If we could only have all the answers to all our questions, with logical solutions and insight, then we might get it right, we think. But…logic goes only as far as we can see right in front of us. And the real creativity…the real universe…is way beyond logic. Look into the empty spaces, outside the boxes, and see the gifts there.
“Judging is preventing us from understanding a new truth. Free yourself from the rules of old judgments and create the space for new understanding.” ~ Steve Maraboli
There seemed to be so many references to “space” this week in the blog posts. And here is yet another. I think the universe is trying to tell us something! I like this quote because it is so true that judging ourselves, circumstance, or others limits our scope of understanding and therefore limits our creativity. Look at any old judgments you may be holding onto that no longer work in your current frame of thought. Once released, a space opens up to be filled with all the goodies that the old judgment told you you could not have. Let go…and open up.
