Are You A Conclusionist?

Nov 2, 2015 | Thinking

If So, Stop Thinking!

Have you ever noticed that trying to find the right answer is actually trying to come to the right conclusion, as if that will change something? When you are being a conclusionist, all you have is answers, not awareness. You use your beliefs and conclusions to limit your possibilities and stop yourself from making the choices you could. And in some strange way, you get joy from using thinking as a way of creating. You must, or you wouldn’t keep doing it!

In my reality, this is the misery of thinking. Most people have misapplied and misidentified the misery of thinking as the joy of thinking. The way to give up the joy of thinking is to start with questions that are designed to give you awareness, rather than a new set of conclusions to play with. Get the energy of what you would like to change and ask:

  1. What is this?
  2. What do I do with it?
  3. Can I change it?
  4. If so, how do I change it?
  5. If not, what else is possible?

If you get the awareness that you cannot change it, don’t try to change it. Move on to the next thing by asking “What else is possible?”

When you open a door to a possibility that will work for you, you know it’s where you have to go. There is a lightness and an expansion in your world even if it makes no logical sense. When you give up the misery of thinking and embrace the joy of thinking, you allow the universe to show you where to go, rather than trying to work it out in your head.

If you ask a question and go to blankness (which is really space), then you can’t come to conclusion. Blankness is space; conclusion is contraction. Possibilities occur from space. Opportunities occur from contraction. Opportunities always limit what is possible.

One reason a choice can be heavy or contracted is that there is a lie attached. You have to ask ‘Is there a lie, spoken or unspoken, that is creating this heaviness?” Then you can uncreate and destroy the lies, so that you have true choice rather than a conclusion based on lies. It always feels lighter when you take the lies away. That’s why you want to use these questions. You are looking for the awareness not the conclusion.

Imagine what it would be like to create from the joy of thinking, where everything expands and becomes greater, rather than the misery of thinking, where everything contracts and becomes less. It’s just a choice! Start by asking a question and staying in the question! The moment you decide you have an answer, you are no longer in the question!
