HOW TO FILL
The sage asked his disciples:
“Bring me a strainer full of water”
Perplexed, the disciples couldn’t fulfill his desire.
The sage took a container full of water and put the strainer inside.
What do I mean by this, asked the sage?
“Well… it’s another way of thinking for solving a problem” said one of his disciples.
“Exactly!” said the sage.
“What does this make you think?”
Hesitatingly, the disciple answered:
Well, the water… is like the information we receive. If we don’t take advantage of it, it would go unnoticed like the water through the strainer.
“Very good, how could you take advantage of this information”, asked the sage?
Other students raised their hands.
“Very good, what else?”
Using the information to solve a situation!
“Excellent, what else?”
¡Using the idea to DETONATE new ways of thinking!
“¡Exactly!”, said the teacher. “This is called LATERAL THINKING, which is an indirect, not obvious but creative ways to solve problems, and attract ideas or new ways of reasoning WHICH ARE NOT EASILY FORGOTTEN AND WOULD NOT POP UP IN OUR MINDS THINKING LOGICALLY.”
This parable teaches new ways of thinking.
In my book “Conversations With my Higher Self”, I give many examples of Lateral Thinking which I call “Mental Detonators.” It is already published worldwide and you can buy it through Amazon, Google Play, iTunes, Barnes & Noble, etc.
I suggest you invest in this book!
If you apply the cost-benefit approach, it would be one of the best investments you can possibly make.
