“If You Push One thing Laborious Sufficient, it Will Fall Over”
Solely these of you older than grime like me will keep in mind the 1960’s humor/satire group, “Firesign Theatre”. The quote above is attributed to them and it received fairly amusing when it was introduced as severe science within the context of a comedy skit.
However simply sit with it for a couple of minutes and you may see the fantastic thing about this little gem which they referred to as Fudd’s First Legislation. Who was Fudd? Who cares! The quote is clearly ridiculous and completely true on the identical time!
How about this: “The one method round an impediment is thru it”
What brainiac got here up with that one? However once more, simply sit with it and a deeper message rises by way of the floor. And that message could be interpreted in so some ways.
Have you ever ever seen the refined, fleeting pictures that come up whenever you ponder issues like this? They make no sense within the second, however they’re really indicators, flashes of perception, that time to deeper components of your nature and enable you to in understanding your self.
For me, The primary quote tells me that if I simply carry on pushing ahead towards my aim and refuse to surrender; no matter is in the way in which will lastly yield. I’m reminded of fudoshin, a Japanese idea which means a spirit of unshakable calm and willpower; braveness with out recklessness, actually and metaphorically, “immovable coronary heart”.
What comes up for me within the second quote is that generally making an attempt to be intelligent is a giant waste of time and searching for a method round an impediment is maybe a refined type of avoiding it. That makes me take into consideration concern, the good immobilizer.
A terrific shortcut
However actually, the quickest option to make an impediment disappear is to use some counterintuitive considering. We stay in a world of complementary opposites. Like north/south, man/girl, onerous/smooth, or sharp/boring. Give it some thought.
Aren’t these obvious opposites simply two sides of the identical factor? I imply how have you learnt what sharp is except you’ll be able to evaluate it to boring? You want boring to outline sharp. It takes two facets to make one full idea.
So what is the reverse of impediment? Are you able to say breach? A breach is, “a gap in one thing that’s attributable to one thing else forcing its method by way of.” So obstacles and breaches are two sides of the identical factor.
Query: What would occur if whereas focusing in your impediment, you remembered it had one other aspect and shifted your focus there as a substitute?
Congratulations! You simply discovered your method out… or ought to I say, by way of!
