How to Get New Ideas, Products and Solutions



Seek and ye shall find.

 Finding the new is lifting up your boots by your boot straps.

Go ahead right now and try it. That’s right, bend over, hold on to your shoes and pick yourself up. It can’t be done. You can’t lift up your legs until you sit down. When you sit down you can pull up your feet and put them on the chair or bench, and then you can stand up.

This is a slow step by step process.

It’s sort of as if you were sitting in the bleachers, in the grandstand, slowly moving higher and higher by lifting up one leg after another, standing higher, sitting, pulling yourself up, standing and sitting as you move higher. We want you to pull yourself up, to help yourself, but we don’t want you to be in the grandstands.

You want to be part of the action.

It’s good if you enjoy watching others having fun, but the way humans learn is by doing. We get to know ourselves and the world around us by experiencing and participating in it. The word for this is “experiential.” It means that as we experience life we become wise. This is what this blog is about.

Here is some advice:

Change your state of being and you automatically change your life.

As you begin to think and create feelings of abundance, friendship, and love you attract new ideas, people, products and solutions. Finding new ideas and new products and solutions is an internal process. Open yourself and the new will enter. 

The whole of it is in curiosity.

Ask and you will receive. Seek and you shall find.

Fight the Juggernauts!

Which one do you fight first?



When faced by two juggernauts and one is a big problem and one is a smaller problem, which one do you attack? Or how do you even defend yourself?  A juggernaut is an unstoppable force. Must you become an unmovable object? What does that have to do with gaming, anyway?

Does carrying out your will mean busting through wall after wall?

Is the solution being a stone wall so that you never cooperate with anyone?–so that you get your way but at the cost of your humanity, your joy of living. Can it possibly be that there is a simple easy way of getting things done?

Psychologist Moshe Feldenkrais points out

in his book, The Potent Self that what’s important is knowing how we hinder ourselves. He calls this parasitic action. He says,

I am convinced that achievement is the result of what is done well and that there is no need for misery to be able to do so. Casting away the contradicting motivations brings out the full vigor of one’s ability to do.

He sites the examples:

The pro golfer whose swing is perfect as opposed to the amateur who crimps up at the last minute into the slice; the graceful dunk of a basketball player, and even the journeyman sawing the pipe, where, in contrary to the beginner who s so full of poor actions he defeats himself. The pro has gotten rid of all unneeded actions. So real will is doing easily and naturally.

Maurice Nicoll says in his Commentaries on the Work of Gurdjieff and Ouspsenky-free pdf– that ‘

Ordinarily we think of Will as something negative because we conceive it only as being exerted against something. We say often, for example that we will resist this or that will not do that.”

How does getting rid of parasitic action relate

to thinking of will as a positive, not resistant force. How does that relate to games? Well,  . . . which juggernaut are you going to fight, the bigger problem or the smaller problem? 

In a fight, one should attack the bigger problem, because after you defeat the bigger one, the littler may get scared and run. But juggernauts don’t get scared. They just keep coming . . . and coming. So what do you do?

Maybe these problems are just parasitic actions that you’ve learned to repeat again and again in your life. Maybe the way to win is non-resistance. Life is just a game. Really it doesn’t have to be so serious. Roll the dice again. Take a chance? What have you got to lose?

The Device

In a movie, Brad Pitt and George Clooney are nuclear scientists. About ten minutes into the movie, Brad Pitt’s son wins the high school science project with a proton decelerator.  The same day, feverishly at work, Pitt and Clooney discover the world is going to implode in ten hours. After serious end of the world earthquakes, tidal waves, and destruction, the device that saves the world is the Pitt proton decelerator.

All movies have devices.

Sometimes, as in  this movie, they are physical objects. Sometimes they are emotional situations where love saves, blinds, or binds. And sometimes they  mental devices, for instance, a detective movie or a movie like The Sixth Sense which depend on your cognition of the plot.

Devices awaken people from their mechanical routines.

Some are physical. The master whops his stick on the disciple’s noggin. Some are emotional, as in prayer by identifying with love, compassion, and forgiveness—by opening the heart to your savior, Jesus or Buddha or God—you obtain those qualities. Some are mental. What are mental devices?

Thought Experiments.

The time track of philosophy goes back before the Greeks and uses a special device called a “thought experiment.” Early philosophers such as Xenophon developed the thought experiment that if a stone fence existed at the end of the universe and you could shoot an arrow over that wall, then the universe was infinite. Also thought experiments appear in the context of science. Einstein sitting in his office–a clerk daydreaming–developed the concept of relativity by a thought experiment. Light was time. He did this by the thought experiment that by moving faster and faster on a train away from a light source—this created relative conditions.

A Thought experiment Which Awakens?

There are many. Here’s one: You are in a dark hallway. You can touch the walls and feel a texture and the rug gives way a bit under the weight of your feet. Yet, it’s very dark, until you see light at the end from a skylight. You look up through the glass and  see dark clouds. Right then . . . the clouds part and sunlight streams into your mind.

Can a game wake up people? 

When developing new products, solutions and ideas, a person needs to wake up. We learn by doing. Play our game.
