Whether your business is a commercial enterprise or fulfilling your bestowed mission in a more personal quest, where does the power come from that allows us to create intelligent solutions?
Let us change metaphors from voltage to dollars. Say it takes five bucks for some gas to run our car for the next little while or say five hundred if we include the insurance. It’s going to cost several thousand to buy a used car and at least fifteen or twenty k to buy a new car. But it could take fifty million to design and build something as yet un-invented. Connecting thoughts into new ideas requires energy. Creating thoughts that do not exist takes considerably more.
If we only have five bucks worth of energy we will end up running the old pattern. For several thousand we can try something we know but don’t use often. For 20 k we can learn a new idea or technique from someone who knows it. How much time and energy would it take to create a new idea or technique? What is the difference between being taught a set solution versus designing or innovating a new one for the exact situation that needs solving?
You get good at what you practice. We develop creativity just like we develop any skill, through study and practice. The practice must be designed to develop a unified field of awareness. If you learn, memorize and perfect a set move your ability to perform that move increases. If you study how to create moves then that ability increases. It takes intention, training and practice to make Whole Being Awareness a functional ability rather than a distant possibility or a random occurrence.
