flows from a state of "mindfulness" - and that
Never forgetting of course that Albert Einstein was
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.

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.
