"We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them."
What if scenario
Let's say you want to buy a car for $100,000 the first thought that probably comes to your mind is
"I can't afford that!"
Well here is the what if scenario method.
How about changing it to "How can I afford a car for $100,000"
Then you mind shifts and you start thinking
"What if I cut back on going out?"
Then you can start thinking
"How can I cut back on going out?
The rabbit hole goes on forever or to you have the new car. This is what our friend Albert was talking about :-)
Zen masters explain this as a reaching state of enlightenment sit in the lotus position focus on your breath and breath in and out. Breath in and out using a 1/2 ratio for example when you breath out count from 1 to 10 then when you breath in count from 1 to 5 always count half, when you breath in then when you breath out. You get led astray by your thoughts however, always come back to counting your breath. Practice for at least 30 minutes everyday and your hindrances will break away all by themselves this is zen meditation.
Sky is the limit with these you can find a bunch of these on youtube. You must have a good imagination and a open mind.
