Stairway of Surprise

Stairway of Surprise

6 steps to a creative life







- all these can be intensified infinitely.

We already think; we can learn to think more deeply, more livingly.

We already feel; we can learn to train our feeling-life away from ourselves so that we feel the world in its richness.

We already thank; we can learn a depth of gratitude that makes life and love intensely real.

There is something extra about the human soul. We have more than enough in us, perhaps too much.

Human are capable of endless creativity and distortion. We are the least predictable thing in creation.

Our very essence is surprise.

Simply represent intensification of inner functions that we all know we need to develop. We all could benefit from thinking with less distraction, more concentration, more invention. We all have difficulty in carrying out our intentions (doing). We all could benefit from turning our self-oriented emotions outward and understanding the world through feeling.

If we are honest, we admit that we can become more loving and so throw the weight of our awareness on the side of Good. Through opening or freedom from prejudice, we could find ourselves more available to the intuitions at the basic of this world and the intuitions still waiting for us to realize them.

We already sense that the moment of thanking makes us intimate with the source of what is given.

Thinking comes first since it is at the basic of all we do; every decision and every act and every understanding. We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts we make the world.

By strengthening our capacity to pay attention, they allow us to say the right words and have the fresh thought just when we need to. They gradually lead us out of the mire of distraction and confusion and allow us to practice what we need most; continual presence of mind.

Only a few people are willing to climb such a stairway. For those who do, it always helps. A stairway goes nowhere unless someone climbs it. And only you can begin....
