compassion, collaboration & cooperation iN transistion
flows from a state of "mindfulness" - and that
The genius Austria composer Mozart would have his most creative moments when lying awake in the still of the night, warm and relaxed in bed. In a letter to his father he once wrote - "WHEN I AM completely myself, entirely alone or during the night when I cannot sleep, it is on these occasions that my ideas flow best and most abundantly. Whence and how these come I know not and nor can I force them."
As Tony Buzan goes on to say in his latest epic - Modern MIND MAPPING for Smarter Thinking - The reason why these creative outpourings occur in such scenarios is that the brain is relaxed and either physically or conceptually in solitude (away from the incessant 'noise' of iPods, [iPhones, iPads and ALL other manner of tablets], Blackberries and so on). This is the environment which then encourages the flowering of creative ideas.
So daydreaming, once seen as a 'no-no' and undesirable especially in the classroom, we are now beginning to see as a behaviour that IS a fundamentally magnificently creative exercise.
It is in our quiet moments that our minds settle and we find that we can meditate or relax. This in turn creates a mental "cushion" from which our imagination and thought associations can flow and traverse to eureka moments.
Daydreaming is at the heart of creativity.
You have to take time out & think about what you are doing when you create a Mind Map. You have to put yourself in "a frame of mind" to think about what you have learnt or what you want to set down.
A simple way to do this is to take a leaf out of Leonardo da Vinci's book and
cultivate your senses - LEARN to see through the eyes of an artist, to hear through
the ears of a musician, to feel with the sense of a lover, to smell with the nose
of a perfumist and taste with the palate of a chef.
This MINDFULNESS Mind Map provides a matrix of 49 "tunnels" - designed for and by the masses - allowing access to a place conducive to Coexistence, Cooperation and Collaboration - such that the collective all-inclusive first person singular present tense, third person objective - point of view - will then lead to the establishment of a new model & method of wealth creation, mutually beneficial to ALL.
BEING mindful, having mindful awareness, is often defined as a way of
intentionally paying attention to the present moment without being
swept up by judgments.
Practiced in the East and West , in ancient times and in modern societies, mindful awareness techniques help people to move towards well-being by training the mind to focus on moment-to-moment experience. People sometimes hear the word mindfulness and think "religion". But the reality is that focussing our attention in this way is a biological process that promotes health - a form of brain hygiene - NOT a religion. Various religions may encourage this health-promoting practice, BUT learning the skill of mindful awareness IS simply a way of cultivating what we have defined as the -
INTEGRATION of CONSCIOUSNESS.
