Find Happiness 67: Declutter, Hear the Universe

Do you wish that your mind was a fount of creativity and inspiration? Of course you do. For that to happen, there is a simple step you have to take: Declutter your mind

uncluttered-mind

By its very nature, your mind is creative and full of inspiration. Trouble is, you’ve filled it up with a cyclone of non-beneficial, active thoughts. Examples:

  • Worrying that a friend or relative thinks ill of you
  • Feeling that you are worthless
  • Depressed that something you want to happen is not happening
  • Fearing that the Universe (or God) is going to punish you
  • Trying to remember a name or word for extended lengths of time

What you need to do is pull away from these mini-obsessions and focus on the present. Nothing will go wrong if you let go of your cloud of worry and negativity. As a matter of fact, you’ll be better off for it… it’s as if the sky has been overcast for years on end, and finally the clouds have melted away, so that you can see the sunshine.

The sunshine is a metaphor for unconditioned thinking, which is very often highly creative. In addition, this thinking can draw from hitherto untapped areas of your mind and result in premonitions or the ability to perform accelerated mental math.

Focussing on the present without regard to your habitual worries, fears and other obsessions needs a strong power of concentration. One of the best ways to develop your concentration is meditation. Meditation comes in several flavours, and you should choose one that is themed around staring at an object. There are several meditation coaches available on the Internet; go to a meditation forum or a meditation group on Facebook and ask for opinions.

Here are links to some meditation forums which I briefly scanned:

And here are some Facebook groups that look worthwhile:

So strengthen your concentration with a few weeks of meditation and use that heightened concentration to focus on the here and now. Practice this focussing continuously and see how your thoughts become more creative and intuitive!
