SHM WEEKLY WISDOM TITBIT. WEEK 12. CAPACITY TO MEDITATE.

SHM_LEXCONSULTS_Thinking, 2
Creativity does not just happen; it does not stand alone. It begins with a thought process. It is ends with a thought process! All forms of creativity are done in between the two ‘thought modes’. Take an example. The creation of a plastic chair. It does not just happen.
 
There would have been the initial concept stage when what is needed is determined – an elegant chair, made of plastic. Then would have come the design stage, with all that would have gone into it – materials, shape, weight, drawings etc. Only then would the manufacturing stage begin. Once a product is birthed, then the ‘second though mode kicks in – marketing, commercials etc.
 
In effect, capacity to master the ‘thought modes’ ensures successful creativity. So, do you have capacity to meditate, to think things through in an orderly fashion? That is the focus of our wisdom titbit this week.
 
Now, meditation has been defined as continued or extended thought, reflection or contemplation. To meditate on something is to give that thing deep thought, refection, quiet time, brainwork, pondering. Do you have capacity to do that on any particular area of your work or enterprise?
 
If the answer for now is NO, do not despair. There is a way out. And that is by developing the capacity to do just that – think deep, reflect, spend time in quiet contemplation, exercise your brain power, and ponder. It may sound high sounding, but it is really not. Truth is every sound human mind has this capacity at one level or the other.
 
See, before you settle on a meal, for instance, you would have gone through this process; only that you did not recognise it as a meditative process because it usually is a short process. It is the same pattern THAT YOU HAVE TO LEARN TO STRETCH OUT! Simple as that! Only difference is that as each field of endeavour becomes technical, so would the meditative process be.
 
Begin today, set out time just to be alone to think things through. If you know us, you will know we encourage baby steps. Extend the contemplative period as you grow. No shame in jotting things down. No shame in how long it takes! But being already!
 
Now, go ahead and shine this week. You shall excel In Jesus’ mighty name. We love you!
