In an earlier post entitled “Imagination, Creative Intelligence and the Quantum Revolution,” I talked about how imagination, which is the use of creative intelligence, is the key to a Quantum Revolution.
I further said that if a Quantum Revolution is about the cultivation of enlightened minds that put into motion enlightened action which creates a more holistic and sustainable world, then imagination is the facilitator of that more enlightened thinking.
Creative Intelligence is the ability to tap into your inner genius. It’s not hard to do, but we just aren’t trained to think that way.
Unfortunately, we are not taught to cultivate our inner genius or are we encouraged to use our creative intelligence, and so we aren’t real confident about using it. But everyone has the capability to do so.
When you use your creative intelligence, you are essentially breaking free of the pack, because you will be thinking for yourself.
Most people group think, meaning they think like the rest of the group. We are not much different than dogs in terms of having a pack mentality, and wanting to do the same thing that everyone else is doing, in order to be accepted by the group.
So if you think for yourself and think different than the group you may have to weather a storm of criticism for having done so.
Many visionary creative thinkers – Quantum Revolutionaries, if you will, have had their ideas rejected by the so-called experts because it didn’t fit into what the pack thought was normal. But because they believed in their ideas, they decided not to run with the dogs.
One of the keys of creative intelligence and creative thinking is to strive for quantity. The more creative thinking ideas you come up with, the better – because many of the ideas you come up with won’t be very good.
Because they’re not worried about being judged by the pack for thinking different than them, they’re not afraid to come up with many ideas. They produce more and more ideas, knowing that sooner or later one or some of the ideas will be worth pursuing.
It’s just that easy to use your creative intelligence and tap into your inner genius – and as you do so, you too may come up with new and innovative ideas that help to create a more sustainable, holistic and enlightened world, and in the process, become a Quantum Revolutionary.
