We think too small. Like the frog at the bottom of the well. He thinks the sky is only as big as the top of the well. If he surfaced, he would have an entirely different view.
Large thinking requires space not available in a mind overcrowded with unresolved issues. Lofty thoughts soar above the mundane, making it difficult to assign more importance to them in the bigger picture only visible from the air. After all, point of view is only limited by the point at which you choose to view things from.
I do not claim to always make the right choices, I am just as human as anyone else. But I do a lot of large thinking now that I never did when I lived at the bottom of the well. And it has been a very liberating experience to unleash my notions and let them grow without censure.
Some days it is simply okay to have unstructured thoughts. Free thinking invites you to know yourself better; demanding that the conclusions reached come from internal spaces, instead of external places, is the first step on the road to self-awareness. Large thoughts give you a much broader base to build a full life upon. And for me being satisfied with being a frog at the bottom of a well is foolish, when a few hops will free you to reach for things, as yet, unimaginable.
