Problem Solving is probably one of the biggest challenges we face today as a species, both individually, and working with groups.
I think one of the reasons why is because in the typical system (as imposed by our democratic way of doing things) we work by a “Tell me what to do” model, where one person is the boss and the other person is the employee. I wrote about it briefly in this blog from last week.
The problem is that when we do it this way, we eliminate free thought to take place,
I saw some comments or some vibe in the first few weeks of this blog emerging from the depths of my mind which felt sort of like… “Hey, this message is different than before. You used to say think for yourself, and now you’re saying Truth is Truth”. because we turn off our own input of awareness in favor of someone else’s.
And the truth is, i’m saying both, and i’d like to take some time to explore what those things mean.
I’d like to start by addressing the fear that my message may sound like i’m telling you what to think or believe. You should follow what’s in your heart and explore and grow exactly how you want to grow.
Remember how just above I mentioned turning off your awareness in favor of someone else’s, and how that’s broken? Well, I believe i know a fix for it.
When you hear something, or read something from someone else… Test it against your own awareness and understanding. Sometimes, it’ll be something you just get instantly, like snapping your fingers, you understand what someone is saying, and there is a strong resonation.
Other times however, you might find yourself feeling contradictory, or as if what someone saying is not lining up with what you believe. You may even feel that way about the stuff you’re reading from me. That’s great, and I welcome that feeling of disconnectedness.
Usually what happens when someone feels that way is they just make a snap decision to fundamentally disagree with the input, and subsequently the person they are sharing in communicating with. If there is no space to ask questions, and really test the ideas thoroughly… there can be no growth.
It’s a little harder to do in a blog-type environment, because it’s a very one-way communication. Despite the comments, this website is still my domain 🙂 These are all just my thoughts and perspective, or rather, my awareness about these thoughts and perspectives that i’ve come to or have been shown…
And one powerful lesson for me is that… Truth is Truth. In fact, here’s a blog about it 🙂
Truth is the actual representation of what a vibration is and means. If you and I see some grass, we can look at it together and say “It’s grass”. It just is, we don’t have to exaggerate or lie or tell stories about the grass to defend our viewpoints, it can simply be grass and we can have a shared awareness about it.
It’s like… sometimes you hear people say “I believe what is true for me personally”, and usually that is said as a defense for “I will make sure I get what I want, regardless of if it’s the right thing to do.”
It’s the mind that makes up the stories and the lies about it usually out of fear or trying to defend something that makes one feel powerful, but in the heart, everything is One. And so coming from a space of shared awareness in your Heart is coming into alignment with everything as it is, and coming in alignment with everyone and everything around you in the purest and truest way.
If everyone was in their heart all around you, there would be no need for secrets, because everyone would just get it, they wouldn’t have to hide because everyone would be supportive and loving.
I feel like asking.. what is the purpose of thinking? Why do we think?
If we think to share our thoughts, feelings and ideas with everyone, so that everyone can be the reflection that refines our awareness of what is to encompass everyone and everything and then everyone can have everything, then we really are thinking for everyone! And if we can think for everyone… well, there simply ceases to be any more separateness.
What does it mean to think for someone else?
What if it’s not to imply that you have to figure out things so that they don’t have to, but that you can co-process data together. You can think together. If you are having a problem, wouldn’t it be great to have a friend who can help you solve it with you?
Likewise, if a friend is having a problem, or needs something figured out and is having a hard time, wouldn’t it be a great feeling to be able to support them by lending them some time, effort, and energy on your part to make their day better?
See, it’s really not all that complicated, we just need to take a step back and breathe.
Who are you thinking for, and why?
