Out of your mind
A problem cannot be solved from the part that created it.
In this case, the mind.
When we are looking for answers, caught up in a washing machine of insanity, the answer will rarely if ever come.
It is because of the mind that the problem exists. Or at least that it cannot be solved.
That is why it is absolutely essential to take a step back. Cease all mind processing.
And readjust. Whether it's a meditation. Breathing. Walking. Exercise. Beating a punching bag to death.
We need to readjust. Because once we step out of the mind, then we can solve the problem.
That inspiration. That knowing, gets a chance to enter and assist.
The greatest insights come when we are literally out of our minds.
