Thoughts and Opinions

Opened-Minded Creativity

About a week ago, while in the middle of my break from book writing and editing, I sat down and had a talk with my guides. I told them to bring in some readings as I was not yet ready to dive back into the books. Lo and behold, within 48 hours, I got what I asked for. On Thursday and Friday, I did more readings and mini-readings than I probably ever did in a two-day period.

In one reading, a woman asked about an offer that she recently received. She wanted to know whether accepting the offer was in her best interest. She clearly had reservations about it. So I pulled cards and began telling her what I saw. Before long, between the two of us, we found how spirit had already told her the answer. I love this! It is very exciting when I can help someone see their own guidance at work. Of course, there was more information than just that too, but that’s another story.

In any event, at one point in the middle of the reading, I said the following to her:

You cannot be creative and closed-minded at the same time.

That struck her as profound, which brought it more into my attention as well. In fact, it is still resonating with me today.

Clearly, one can be expressive and closed-minded at the same time. Look out into the world and you will see lots of people expressing their limited beliefs and idea. They refuse to look at any evidence that leads to new ideas; they simply want to express what they know to be true (really, what they believe to be true).

So to be creative, one must be open to something new. The definition of creative I use in this case is:

Using or showing use of the imagination to create new ideas or things. Being imaginative, inventive, inspired, and/or artistic.

Now we all know that we can create with a closed mind, we’ll simply create another instance of something familiar. But to create something new, we have to be open to new thoughts, even if they are coming from the inside.

Most often, new thoughts come from the outside. How often have we heard (or overheard) someone and then said (maybe to ourselves), “I never thought of that before,” or maybe, “I never looked at it that way before.”

In fact, one could also say this:

You cannot learn and be closed-minded at the same time.

By definition, learning is when new thoughts and ideas are accepted and thus require an open mind.

Well, this weekend, I learned some things – a lot of things. It all started Friday afternoon, when I received in the mail a book that I had ordered about a week before. I found the book so fascinating, I completed it over the next two days – and it was highly technical.

In 34 days, we will be commemorating the 10-year anniversary of a day that changed everything. Whenever I entertain memories of the vacation I had earlier that summer, I can feel how different the world was then than mere weeks later. It is astounding how much change that single event created.

And yet, after 10 years, there are still unanswered questions. Did you know that there are actually a number of competing theories as to what actually happened on 9/11? I am not talking about who or why, but what and how. People have been debating the science for nearly ten years now.

And there is still a lot more to learn. After reading Where Did the Towers Go? I learned a great deal of information that I had never been aware of before. (For example, did you know that a large hurricane heading directly toward NYC sat just 500 miles off the coast on September 11, 2001? On that morning, the hurricane was still heading directly toward NYC and only turned to the east just after the attack.)

Where Did the Towers Go? is nearly 500 pages and reads like a textbook with numerous photographs, diagrams, maps, and  graphs. It is written by Dr. Judy Wood and is an investigative analysis of the collapse of the World Trade Center. Dr. Judy Wood has a B.S. in Civil Engineering, an M.S. in Engineering Mechanics (Applied Physics), and a Ph.D. in Materials Engineering Science. Given her qualifications and specialty, she focuses on the physics of the materials used in the construction the WTC, and through detailed analysis, considers the theories that are out there (including the unproven theory presented to the public via the news).

Judy’s book is not a conspiracy theory. She simply walks the reader through a detailed analysis of the evidence she gained access to within her research. Interestingly, the NIST report of what happened on 9/11 did not cover an analysis of the collapse itself, only what lead up to it. [This is acknowledged by NIST itself.] So despite the theories presented to us (the public), no government study has actually been performed determining the mechanics of the collapse based on examination of what remained after the collapse. In this sense, Judy’s analysis is actually needed and pertinent. She has submitted a federal qui tam case based on the findings she discusses in her book.

At any rate, the subject is still to this day a highly emotional one – even for me. And yet, I remain open to new ideas about it. Nothing (before this book) made enough sense to explain to me why and how those building fell the way they did and all the way to the ground. I studied enough physics and mechanical and civil engineering to know that something more was at play than what we were told.

Eleven is a master number and holds within its vibration illumination and disillusionment. It is still my desire that more light and truth be illuminated around what happened that day, which also entails the dispelling of illusions that surround it. This can only serve the greater good of humanity.
