Its so amazing how great ideas come into your mind when you are away from day to day fire fighting. I read the other week Eckhart Tolle’s book – Stillness Speaks – there is a fantastic line that goes “True intelligence operates silently. Stillness is where creativity and solutions to problems are found” – how brilliant is that!?
Well this happened to me today. I was out on the Lancashire Moors first thing this morning walking my dog “Buddy”- great scenery, peaceful and quiet- when out of nowhere, 2 belting ideas flashed into my mind – I legged it back home to get them written in my journal, before I lost them. I think its so important to create time to connect with nature and the beauty of our surroundings – it really does open the door to new possibilities. How many of us just keep pushing away trying to solve problems when our minds are blinded by a state of “mental fog”
