Thinkwhole. . .  


A few days ago I read a story of a sinkhole occurrence.  They don't happen here with any regularity but the thought of anything related to a sinkhole seems kinda ominous maybe even a bit scary to me. 


However, rather than dwell on the rare possibility of a horrific underground disappearance, my mind switched to more pleasant thoughts and a different direction.  Imagine that!  A new discovery and a brand new word.  Thinkwhole. 


Imagine a word or perhaps an entire movement that arrives as the result of a pause in conversation or thought that enhances any subject.  A situation could suddenly become much clearer.  Less fogginess, greater awareness and generally increased focus.  No side-effects either.  


I stopped for a second...yes, I like's truly the "bigger picture".  Much more clarity.   Now it's onto another search.  Hmm, has somebody already arrived at the doorstep of this major discovery?  Well, my preliminary search led to nothing specifically named but I did find other examples of thinktanks as well as health and wellness-related concerns that seemed to be a bit related.  Onto the next thought and the next new word...

Anna Banana Kruchten CRS CRB, Phoenix Broker - I am glad you "found" this post and that it resonated with you.  I imagine the word/theory might prompt a "Huh?" type of response.

I almost missed this wonderful post, it reminded me of something Wayne Dyer said, "the Earth is round, there are no sides!" It is the 360 perspective!  Enjoy your Thanksgiving.  A

Hi there, Michael Jacobs - I love this word play - Thinkwhole, sinkhole with a lisp? Regardless, I think many can benefit with the practice of working to thinkwhole - understanding perspectives and seeing things from an expansive place.  The more we open our eyes and minds to understanding things from another's viewpoint,  the more we can learn. Happy Thanksgiving - going to attempt to avoid saying, " I can't believe I ate the "whole" thing."  Lol.

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD -  perspective prompts pondering as do Alka Seltzer moments.  

John Juarez - your comment made me think of Dr Seuss.  Thinkwhole as a word and a concept has me thinking he would have been the right guy to "take" us there.

I ditto others - copyright thinkwhole! I know it's not your intention to monetize it but still - it's very creative. At the very least, get the .com for yourself.
