Breaking Rules

I have discovered that when rules get tedious, it’s time to change them. That feeling is an intuitive nudge. It's physical.

Rules are made to be broken. 90% of rules are designed to expire. They should come with a time-stamp. Generally, rules are created to solve a problem or correct confusion. Good rules fix the problem.

Rules teach and we learn. For example, with dieting, you may decide to have desserts only on weekends as an experiment to gently lose weight.You make it a rule. It becomes a handrail to keep you on track and then it becomes automatic, part of you. You feel a calm,  healthy sense of accomplishment. The rule has done its job.

The rules made for breaking are the ones that serve no purpose. They are the ones that feel tedious. We need to let go of them to see what needs fixing and what doesn't. It's important to look at the big picture.

Today, nearly everywhere, rules are 'broken' because they no longer make sense. It's time to think outside the box. Problems, like everything else, change. This is part of the topography of living. Everything upgrades. Upgrade is another word for change. 

With sensual thinking, instead of rules, we have guidelines - universal values that are easy to feel -  such as curiosity or determination. No rules, just guidelines to help you think with your senses and feel with your mind. What do you see? What do you hear? What do you think? It's time to think differently. We feel the winds of change.

We are creating Curious#Happenings all over the world in the next 18 months to share how to think with your senses and feel with your mind, to step onto solid ground - outside the box.

Original music, inspiring technology and sensual thinking... Are you ready?

Here's an example of Thinking Outside the Box, driven by Curiosity and Determination:

Sensual thinking taps in to feelings of purpose. It's a collaboration of the senses, technology and ageless universal values - with the heart. We are thinking with our senses and feeling with our mind.
