One day I clicked a link at work and it was a place where people could submit ideas for new innovations and stuff.
I just typed a bunch of stuff real quick about how I hate having to charge electronic devices all the time. With wires. And how great it would be if we didn’t have to do that, or not as often…
And, my idea ended up in the top 10 out of the few hundred that were submitted, and I got an email from a person, and we met, and I have the opportunity to turn this idea into a business proposal and seek funding for development.
So, there’s that, just in case I was bored or something.
Sometimes I find myself eating chips and drinking beer.
Those are fun times.
I get crazy ideas sometimes.
Here is one.
We all have different dimensions of the mind that we inhabit. Different social circles, different ways we view the world, etc.
Most of this is due to how and where and when we grew up. Our home life, parents, peers, friends, trials and triumphs: our collective experiences help to shape our view of the world.
We tend to naturally gravitate toward people with similarities in experience, knowledge and belief.
The things we have in common help define the “mental dimension” that we all share.
Within this mental dimension, our differences can show how deep our collective experiences are.
Having things in common with others is good. It gives us a sense of belonging. It helps us cope with what life throws at us.
Being unique and having differences is good too because it adds depth not only to ourselves, but to those who share our life experiences.
We can navigate these dimensions. Learn other cultures and philosophies and beliefs and personalities. Inhabit the dimension of thought. Participate. Contribute. Give. Show generosity and understanding and loyalty and unconditional love and you will learn, gain acceptance and influence that dimension.
You can literally become anyone you want just by shifting your focus. You can go anywhere in the whole of human experience.
Grow beyond the belief system that you started with.
Navigate within the universe of humanity.
Become someone else. Someone better, with less flaws and fears.
Choose a destination and go.
