Creative thinking

Postby Mindful Entity » Thu Feb 18, 2021 6:58 pm

Hello! I am new here and am grateful to be a part of this community.
I started meditating couple of years ago to ease my rumination. In the beginning I used to forcibly push away my thoughts because my view on meditation was that of being in a state of bliss. As time went on I came to the realization that by not accepting my thoughts I only make it worse.
My mind is in a better place now. In a way I am new to thoughts and would like to learn more about it. My question is: How do you use meditation for constructive and analytical thinking and how do you apply it in your relationships, work and life overall?
Thank you!

Every evening I think about a question I want to answer. It is usually fairly specific and related to something I'm trying to learn about or improve. I write it down. When I wake the next day it is my very first task. I spend maybe 15 to 30 minutes contemplating an answer.

Sometimes it might take a few days or even a week of thinking on the same question. There is not necessarily a right or wrong answer. The benefit is on the process of working through the question and drawing some conclusion, regardless of the extent to which the conclusion is necessarily "true".

The application comes from how you might use the answers to develop some aspect of your life, whether it is a relationship, work, or life in general. I also find having a question is good motivation to start the day.
