Possibility ... a state of mind
John A Wood
As a businessman, John A. Wood pioneered and cultivated the company, Fleetwood Corporation Ltd – one of the largest and most successful groups of its type in Australia. He then travelled extensively and trained solidly for five years before founding the Philosophy of Living Centre – the first coaching, counselling and training organisation of its kind in Australia. Possibility … a state of mind is the culmination of his life’s work to date, and his contribution to a better future for humankind. John lives with Ronnie in the hills suburb of Darlington, just east of the City of Perth, Western Australia. Possibility … a state of mind has been written and the Possibility Project created to give everyone the chance to see Possibility.
Possibility … a state of mind encourages you to take your own journey of deepening, or re-discovering, your innate transformative state – your own state of Possibility. However, seeing Possibility transcends the concept of ‘positive thinking’. Seeing Possibility is the superhighway you travel along when manifesting any original idea seen in your mind’s eye. It may be a work of art, a new invention or business venture, a new app or a transformed life and relationship. In this guide, John recounts instances from his life of seeing Possibility, the impact these instances had on his life, as well as on the lives of many of his clients. He explains how you too can see Possibility; what it might and might not be; the benefit of letting go of thinking you know ‘the truth’; the freedom that seeing Possibility can give you; and how, when seen, it can re-cast how you see life, and re-shape your communications, relationships, business, family and vocational life for your own and the common good. He demonstrates that, when playing ‘The Game of Living’ – including the Religion Game, the Marriage Game, Nationalistic Game, the Political Game, the Family Game, the Career, Business and Commercial Game, the Sporting Game, and the Spiritual Game – if played from the perspective of love, understanding, wisdom and common sense experienced in the realm of Possibility, you can truly embrace every aspect of life. In this state, you – like John – can see a world in which we are kind and understanding towards one another, where a sense of fairness and decency govern all our decisions at work and at play. Possibility … a state of mind guides you on a journey that will benefit all of us.
Any person seeking a life of Possibility rather than one of impossibility. It is: A GUIDE: Transforming ourself transforms our world.
Book cover type
Other color requirements
Two colour is my preference
Possibility is a state of mind. The book is a readers guide to that state of mind. I am open to any design that can encapsulate the abstract concept of Possibility. My definition of what I mean by Possibility is: Possibility (with a capital ‘P’) is where the abstract, unfathomable domain of Thought meets our personal reality in the form of original ideas, brand-new concepts, fresh starts and transformed relationships. In a state of Possibility, we see new discoveries, previously unseen inventions, innovations and opportunities. More importantly and fundamental to the lifeblood of this book, it is the realm of our transformation from who we mistakenly think we are to who, in our essence, we really are. It is the realm in which each of us can experience a profound feeling of kindness, deep understanding, great wisdom and insightful common sense – the mantra throughout this text. When directly experiencing life from that state of Possibility, irrespective of our circumstances, we are what we aspire to be. And in that state we feel empowered to take whatever next step it is we see we need to take. 4 A further explanation of what I mean by Possibility is: POSSIBILITY IN BRIEF • Possibility exists prior to anything and everything we believe to be ‘the truth of the matter’. • Possibility precedes our imagined, self-created, rock-solid reality as a state beyond our knowing, facilitating our transcending of what we had believed to be possible, reasonable or rational. • Possibility is ever-available whether we see it or not, and it exists (seemingly) independent of us. • Possibility’s profound depth and scope are available to be discovered (and rediscovered) at any time in any place. • Possibility allows us to see new creations and opportunities from the state of awareness that benefits the whole and not just the seer. • Possibility is our inherent state of awareness when unshackled from our habitual, memory-based, conditioned thinking. • Possibility is birthed by fresh Thought (never by recycled thinking no matter how wonderful) and is a state of intense psychological, philosophical and spiritual freedom. • Possibility is the realm of creativity, innovation and the solutions to what ails humanity. 6 The book is at least 400 pages and a 9 x 6 or there abouts is the size I think would work 7. The font styles I will leave up to the designer but a clean, modern font is my preference 8 Imagery: simple and easy to recognise 9 Mood: in seeing Possibility we have a fresh perspective 10 I have attached the first 45 pages (13,000 words) that provides insight into the point of the book
What to avoid
This not another self help book! It deals with our innate state of clarity, the state that you as a designer accesses, composers access, business people access, architects access and any person who has a fresh idea accesses. Avoid anything that links to possitive thinking, creative visualisation and the like. Seeing Possibility is innate in every human being but it's source and how to access that state is unknown to most.
