There is also the quality of being able to see the influx that comes up from the inner world, to be able to pay attention to it.
For example, I needed to get a copy of a book. I went to the major book stores Barnes & Noble and other stores where I live. None of the stores had the work in stock. The next day I had to go to a neighboring small town for a meeting. The drive included passing over a bridge that I never crossed before. There at the end of the bridge, a little farther down the road, was a used-book store that caught my attention. There was a subtle perception that is best described as an energetic pull that I noticed in myself, and I immediately parked my car, and went into the store.
There sitting on the shelf was a used copy of the book that I wanted, and it was the only book on the shelf. To be able to see through to the possibility that the book that I wanted might be available in the unexpected place made all the difference. Because logically, if the major book stores didn’t have the book, why would I think that a used book store, in a small town, could have even a single copy in stock?
The ability to see through into the possibility, and imagine out of the box as it were, is an important attribute of psyche.
