It seems that thoughts flow and arise. In openness they bring insights and creative ways to see things and than they pass.
In openness something of us is unfolding and extending. It seems that the source of many problems is the grasping and attachment to thoughts and in so doing there is an abandonment of openness. Our western materialistic culture seems to bring with it a relative fragmented sense of knowing that obstructs openess. What we think to be creative is limited by that obstruction.
