Imagination

When people start losing, they wanna start over again, with a clean slate. What they don’t realize that the effort they have put so far is not futile. Although you failed, you learned too. You learned what not to do in order to understand what should be done.

Don’t clean your slate. Fill it with all the designs you can imagine. That’s how you live life.

Critical appraisal

Repetition of an event does not necessarily strengthen our belief in it. Just because something occurs more than once doesn’t really mean it is the truth.

A repetition in a sense is not a true replication. A repetition comes along with slight variations, some which we don’t even notice. And those small changes should make us more cautious and critical of our beliefs.

When we ignore those variations and continue affirming our beliefs, that is dogma. Nothing is more detrimental to pursuit of knowledge than a dogmatic perspective. Being critical is what makes you creative.

Meditation

Meditation is important for creativity. But how?

When you’re awake you’re applying your conscious mind into particular activity or activities.Your unconscious mind is the buzzing in the background that you get used to and come to ignore.That is why your conscious action and unconscious idea don’t mix up; and you don’t connect the dots to come up with creative ways to change the way of life.

While sleeping your scope of conscious mind reduces drastically and your unconscious mind takes over.Now you get access to your unconscious mumbling,but still no process of creativity takes place.You just randomly go through different memories without a particular goal since conscious mind’s focus is gone.

Meditation lies in between this spectrum.You are in control of your conscious mind but you don’t preoccupy yourself with the its thoughts,hence giving unconscious mind a part of the field.So there’s no power play but only sharing through which you come up with awesome ideas.

Two heads are better than one and meditation is the way to form the team.

But you must also remember that too many cooks spoil the broth.So for some people meditation is not always the answer.

That’s why we all must try to tailor generalised findings in nature to suit our particular needs.One person’s stash is another person’s treasure.
