In 2004, I was flying from Seattle to Toronto. A long flight. Somewhere over Winnipeg and bored I found myself making lots of small dots in my note book, a sort of pointillist outburst. I let go of my thoughts and judgments about it and simply allowed it to continue, for four hours! This was the result. When I’d finished my outburst I realized that I had produced a more artistic version of an illustration I had first sketched in 1993. I had originally called it “The Origins of Consciousness.” It is now 2014 and this early inspiration has evolved into a well-formed and published theory of human consciousness, psychology and thinking. It’s called the theory of MindTime. My relationship to this theory has been my greatest lesson in life; a lesson in listening to my inner knowing and voice and following that rather than anything else. I’ve learned this practice is called the Tao.
Over the coming months and years I’m going to use this blog to share more of the ideas and insights that seem to flow naturally from that inner voice. Much of what I’m likely to write about comes from the insights gained from our work on MindTime and how I believe it can be used to evolve more consciously aware people, teams, organizations, communities and cultures. I hope you will enjoy what you read and share it with others who you think will find meaning and usefulness in this work.
From one unindividuated consciousness to our individuated thoughts and experiences. From source to human consciousness.
