Flower Power Point Two…
Curiosity Feeds Creativity
I’m in the supermarket, back from holiday, feeling flat.
Same old same old. No more birdy twitters and compelling vistas. Just dumb old plastic, fluoro, beeps and trolleys. Ah trolleys. I remember to
‘Get Curious’. I make a choice. I pay attention to the trolleys stacked in a snakey line. A caterpillar. I imagine a creature – a living being. It’s moving, clanking, organic. I am instantly refreshed. Instead of walking around with a negative grey steelo pad for a brain, I’ve noticed something ordinary, then played with my immediate perceptions of it.
If I were motivated and confident to do so, I could turn this wee fanciful image into a cartoon, a sculpture or a character in a play.
It’s a simple, yet powerful injunction. I picked it up in a mindfulness training course. Hmm. Now I’m curious about when in my life I stopped being curious and therefore needed reminding.
Do you relate to this? Were you a curious-cat kid? Always asking Why? And then the volume button of your natural wonder and curiosity got switched down to low?
Here’s the link to Open Ground mindfulness training in Australia. Deeply recommend.
and…‘Get Curious’ leads directly to Flower Power Point Three…coming your way in late July.
