Consider that it’s the space between the question and the answer.
As soon as you settle on the answer possibility thinking is done.
One of the greatest challenges is staying in the realm of the possible long enough to sort through what you already know, think, and feel to finally gain access to the unknown.
This is an act of spiritual stamina. Why? Well if you’re like me you’re in a hurry to solve the problem that threw you into the land of what if, as if it’s prickly and cramped instead of spacious and expanded.
