Excerpt from CHAPTER III: THOUGHT: DEVELOPING CONSCIOUS CHOICE
“When you … give up struggling to find answers with the limited thinking mind, … that is when a greater intelligence can operate through you.”
~ Eckhart Tolle
There are two modes of thought common to every human being: “free-flow thinking” (or “Flow”) and “process thinking.” Some of the most helpful distinctions between these two modes of thought can be seen through defining them, as well as through understanding the particular attributes of each.
Understanding these two capacities of thinking available to people enables us to better sustain hopefulness and a sense of possibility in the face of personal, group, or organizational pressures and changes. People then continue to expand creative thinking for problem-solving, improve productivity in all areas of endeavor, and tap into intrinsic motivation.
Sustaining hopefulness is achieved through the maintenance of a lighthearted attitude in spite of circumstances, and it is the result of choosing to cultivate an alignment with a free-flow state of thinking.
“Pollyanna knew something. She changed a whole town.”
~ The Reverend Kathryn Jarvis
