“We cannot solve our problems with the same level of thinking we used when we created them.” – Albert Einstein
I think I already posted this quote more than once but my ideas have since changed about it. When I first read this, I related to it as the gap between present moment and a goal or a desired particular future. Then naturally, you zoom out by changing your level of thinking/awareness/consciousness and try to look at the problem from multiple angles.
Nowadays, I think that’s only part of it. Yes you have to zoom out and explore perspectives from above, but more importantly, you have to zoom in. Way in. Past your attitudes and actions, past your thoughts and feelings, and into the subconscious.
Bonus feature : exploration of the subconscious leads to access of the cosmic consciousness.
