I hope my talk doesn’t get bogged down in division over healthcare. I was using universal health care as a metaphor for the Single Idea that changes your world. This Idea when it is conceived actually CREATES the world it needs in order to take on form. That is the meaning of the Creative Idea….We have no idea how powerful a Single Idea is. But we have all experienced its power in one way or another.
Falling in Love is a Single Idea that transcends but includes the polarity of me looking for a perfect mate. Suddenly, we know: I am in Love. Or I’m going to marry that person.
Or the child sees a ballerina and knows at the age of 5 that is who she is going to be. The Single Idea that creates your world does not change it, using the conditions that exist as a horizontal translation, like a new cup…no, the Single Idea is the creation of a new way of drinking tea, a way that never existed before.
So lets not get bogged down here in the polarity of health care, but use this as a way of seeing what a Single Idea is before it takes on some material form. We live in a world created by Ideas. And the news new idea depends upon all the previous ideas that have come before it. Yet the new idea is entirely new and has never existed before, yet it is dependent upon the conditions as a diving board from which you leap.
We are all looking for the Land of Eureka! What are the conditions in which it can be discovered, since we can’t find it at the end of any path. There are no means to get to the Other Shore of Eureka! However we can created the conditions for the landing on the Other Shore.
