Well, if you like the topic of ‘ simply being happy and enjoying yourself’ better, than this may be of more interest to you than meets the eye.
I work from the understanding that life is a creative process. How you process information is, to my mind, of high influence on two scores:
Which refers always primarily to ‘changing my mental position’ even in the cases when changing my body position is part of it, or doing something else.
It works everywhere, always.
Change the angle, bend you neck and see what happens. Look down from a birds-eye perspective, (or up) and.....there are no more flat lines in the centre of your attention anymore.
Zoom in, see the details of the scene, or zoom out, see the patterns of the scene, the broader picture and be amazed by the new things you see., the lines and shapes in the completely new composition of the exact same reality, without you stepping away from it.
Bored with doing the same things over and over again in the same way?
Do them differently!
Eat the same-old meal on another location, presented in a different way and observe how different it tastes. Or use the very same ingredients and see how many completely different meals you can make from it, in taste, flavour, texture.
In looking at the ‘ data’ in a different order, from a different angle, you see different things. Things that were hidden, from the position you were in, are now more obvious. Things that where ‘in your face’ but you had reached your’ levels of satisfaction’ with, are moving to the background, making room for other things to be viewed as more important, relevant to the overall composition of the reality you are in right now.
From that different mental position, you are attracted to different things in the set of available data.
Another snippet of data in the formation has become more meaningful ( compared to the others in the same field). It is allowed to take the lead in the formation.
In allowing that to happen, you get from the very same set of data, a different experience, different information and so you’ll make different decisions.
You have opened yourself up to the possibility to move from there into another direction than the directions you are familiar with. Especially useful if you’ve had enough of taking certain routes that you find not so joyful (anymore).
However, in improving your experimenting skills of changing your mental position and looking at the same set of data differently, you are learning to see what it is you actually like to see more of, more often and which directions you prefer, seeing now a palette of choice.
