Special Observations of Nature, combined with Circumspection and Personal Experiences, open doors to ‘Awe’ and ‘Wonder’. Those, the only way to Cosmic Truths and other Knowledge Sources, fashion Wisdom applications. To synthesize ones Soul with Nature is what makes Critical Thinking (CT) fruitful and gives birth to Productive Imagination. Then, after sound investigation of all topic directions, insightful ideas come unexpectedly, like an inspiration. Whereas, to untrained minds, Nature is chaotic, to CT minds, Nature is in Mathematical-type Order–having no pause in evolution, development, or transformation. Processes of Cosmic Nature and in human minds share the same development: (1) The Source gives rise to the “Seed”; (2) What Caused the Seed, with the proper nutrition, emanates an Effect; (3) The Effect is pregnant with Consequences; and (4) The end stage of the sum total of each manifested Consequences is the Result. The original “Seed’s” Ingredients contain ultimate pre-existing Wisdom for dealing with all of its evolutionary beginning Roots, Trunk/Vines, Branches, Leaves, and Fruit components. To reveal their Purpose, when one is in a secure and deep Peaceful state, the artistry of Nature is known in a delicate Poetic sense–i.e. shaped Truths by a touched and awakened ‘Heart” that designs new meanings for the ‘Head’. For example, to focus on any part of the Seed, or its off-spring, is like seeing the world in a Grain of Sand or experiencing “the Heavens” in a blooming flower. To appreciate a given part’s Beauty is to be under its “Spell”–filled with “Charm” or “Enchantment” by the arbitrariness of its Being and its Mystique (i.e. bathing in the aura of its infinite Wisdom Source). Such recognition indicates to CT how to become aware of a Nature’s Being—i.e. a Spirit always and its Matter never the same, like a Candle Flame’s Constant Fire Path and Variable Streamers.
CT develops by allowing itself to yield to every whim of Curiosity with unrestrained passionate inquiry and eagerness of thought. To understand an Entity’s “Uniqueness/Sameness” at any given moment + from moment to moment paves insights from entering into Infinity. Also, momentary awareness of Eternity occurs by simply smelling a Gardenia or any like-kind product of Nature. Crucial to comprehensive CT assessments of a topic is to analogize Nature to a Star and follow each Ray. Most Rays are developmentally incomplete or a Ray’s ‘movie’ is only seen as single snapshots. Since manifestations of Nature’s workings are most varied and seem like Paradoxes, pursuing any Ray may uncover solutions. Paradox, a term with great complexity, is something seemingly self-contradictory on the surface but investigation shows inner aspects of contradiction having harmonized Correspondence linkages or interrelationships previously unknown. This includes hidden ones without obvious order–i.e. no human can pin it down. Underlying those linkages is something natural and therefore coming out of the Spiritual Elements. A match happens because Organic Patterns, besides being beautiful markings which never make aesthetic mistakes, are each perfectly ordered–as evidenced by the resultant Thing's coherent, enduring, balanced, harmonious, connectedness, and unchanging elements and shaped patterns. Hence, a Product, seemingly like a weed, is discovered to be a flower in disguise. Applications from discoveries in Nature may be about a Seed having bloomed into a flower to waste its fragrance on the desert air. CT embraces this and harmonizes Wisdom with Nature into a Form which can find that flower’s proper niche so as to bring harmonized benefits to the “ME/WE”.
In dealing with complex problems, CT will encounter Exceptions. Not knowing immediately if that Exception is ‘okay’, of what has been Observed, CT skillfully sees all aspects of the obvious exactly for what it is and as it is. Something in that Exception might be extracted in order to determine if it is a player representing a new symphony. To discern that, CT carries that player through Rational steps, similar to those of the complex problem under present consideration. In comparing the two processes in their parallel courses, there may be discovered interrelationships or links leading to innumerable potential unrealized Realities. As a trial, if three viable Options can be selected out of them, CT forms Plans A, B, and C. Truth Verification of each option is its immediate applications in seemingly unrelated Entities but that do “mesh.” CT’s final task is selecting proper Plans that fit with proper people, in proper settings, and putting all into action. jabaileymd.com; JABLifeSkills; Theievoice.com
