Thinking Outside the Box
Your ability to think logically and follow a linear train of thought is a crucial aspect of intellectual development, but rational thinking is not the only tool you have in your toolbox! Imagination, dreaming, and curiosity are essential aspects of being a happy, fulfilled, and successful human being. In the words of Albert Einstein, “We should take care not to make the intellect our god; it has, of course, powerful muscles, but no personality.”
A big part of your unique personality comes from the ways your own altered states trickle up into your everyday world of work, play, and relationships.
Becoming comfortable and fluid with altered states enables you to utilize the unique wisdom from each of these parallel worlds whenever you want to create more ease, depth, liveliness, and meaning in any area of your life.
Altered state awareness is immediately available to you at any time; your creativity, your ability to think outside the box, and your particular flavor of personal genius come from tapping into various altered states of awareness.
