Nature knows no right or wrong only balance or imbalance
~ Professor Hollis Walker
And it doesn’t care, methinks.
To create real possibility, notions of things being right, wrong, good or bad hinder the process, whereas asking the question: “Does this work or not work?” creates a clear steer. However, balance is always the access to true possibility.

Prompted by a facebook posting, today:
“I don’t Think Outside The Box ~ I Think Like There’s NO Box!”
I get the sentiment but it made me think.
I don’t know who came up with the expression and forgive if I misconstrue their intention but ….
…….we are the boxes!
This may be male thinking, particularly as the Facebook post had come from a woman.
You will see what I mean if you watch Mark Gungor’s video: Tale of Two Brains
women multitask naturally and so the possibility of a box existing is less likely, whereas men compartmentalise.
However, if we go inside and create limits for ourselves we also create the box that eventually we cannot think outside of.
If we see our experience as something bigger than ourselves then our thinking is outside of the (our) box.
A young boy had just gotten his driver’s license and inquired of his father if they could discuss his use of the car.
His father said he’d make a deal with his son. “You bring your grades up from a C to a B average, study your Bible a little, get your hair cut and we’ll talk about the car”
The boy thought about that for a moment, decided he’d settle for the offer and they agreed on it.
After about six weeks his father said, “Son, I’ve been real proud. You brought your grades up and I’ve observed that you have been studying your Bible, but I’m real disappointed you haven’t gotten your hair cut”
The young man paused a moment then said, “You know, Dad, I’ve been thinking about that, and I’ve noticed in my studies of the Bible that Samson had long hair, John the Baptist had long hair, Moses had long hair and there’s even a strong argument that Jesus had long hair.”
To this his father replied, “Did you also notice they all walked everywhere they went?”

There was an old man, a boy, and a donkey. They were going to town and it was decided that the boy should ride.
As they went along they passed some people who thought that it was a shame for the boy to ride and the old man to walk. The old man and boy decided that maybe the critics were right, so they changed positions.
Later, they passed some more people who thought that it was a real shame for that man to make such a small boy walk. The two decided that maybe they both should walk.
Soon they passed some more people who thought that it was stupid to walk when they had a donkey to ride. The man and the boy decided maybe the critics were right so, they decided that they both should ride.
They soon passed other people who thought that it was a shame to put such a load on a poor little animal. The old man and the boy decided that maybe the critics were right, so they decided to carry the donkey.
As they crossed a bridge they lost their grip on the animal and he fell into the river and drowned.
The moral of the story: If you try to please everyone, you will eventually lose your ass.
Ain’t that the truth!
