The Power of Your Mind Series

Today: Beyond Right or Wrong!


I recently came across a quote that gave me a powerful idea!  I modified it to this: “Beyond the place of Right Doing or Wrong Doing, there is a beautiful field that is full of opportunities, fun, joy, ideas, potential, life and well being…”

This is a powerful concept when you apply it to your life! I’m going to ask you to take a moment to really embrace this idea.

Now, take 3 nice deep breaths to relax and then take a moment to just contemplate the concept right now, after each slow and rhythmic breath. 

Now, what does it mean to you?  What does your Beautiful Field beyond doing right or doing wrong, look, feel, or sound like?  Is it a process you can start to explore?


I have often seen, heard, and met people who live life deeply stuck in what they believe to be Right.  That they have become deaf, blind and numb (sometimes dumb) to any other possibilities.

Just see and hear what is on the news on any given day.  People so stuck in their perspectives and concepts and beliefs that they want to kill anyone who thinks, believes, speaks, or sees differently than them.

Nonetheless change is exciting!  In contemplating your “beauty-field” new options, choices, insights are just beyond any stuck thinking.

Imagine what that can mean to you.  How can you apply this?  What are ways to show by example and to help make a positive difference for your life, those around you and even beyond any thing you can conceive of?

Everyone has these fields available!  Many have not experienced, seen, felt, heard or explored these fields yet.  But it is there for each and every individual. 

Take the time to look, contemplate, breathe, relax and open the door of your mind’s eye, to the “beautiful fields of possibility”.

You will find that as you open, explore and experience the choice of possibility thinking, you can find those fields of joy and beauty.

And yes this is a choice!  Like so many other things in life an act of will is the source.  Some may say “Oh I can’t do that” or “that is not real”. 


But Why Not?

 We have choices and options… what was a truth yesterday may no longer be true today or tomorrow.

Is the earth Flat?  Is our planet the center of the universe?  Of course Not!

Yet someone use to believe it was. 

Are there certain things that were “right” for you in the past and not so today?  Of course there are.  Based on learning, life experiences and insights.

What about things that you believed wrong?  Sometimes they were proven “right”.

What are your options?  How could someone else look at the same situation so differently?  What would a brilliant advisor or consultant say to you?

There are possible solutions to any situation.  Even if you do not believe it possible.  As one let’s go of the “how to” and starts to realize the possibility, even if it is a remote possibility, it can become reality.


Our Concepts of What’s Possible Can (and Do) Change

No one really knew how to get to the moon until President Kennedy, decided that we could and would get there!  Then it became so thereafter.

What are some of the choices and potential for the Beautiful fields of your mind?

I leave with that thought.  Share below, and let’s continue the conversation.

To Your Success and cultivation of those fields!

  1. I’m glad that you often bring up the topic of breathing. It’s simple, but it helps us to focus and reflect on what really matters. Looking forward to your next post! Thanks Gregg.
