The Magic Beans

The Magic Bean

“If at first the idea is not absurd,

then there is no hope for it.”  Albert Einstetin

The spirit of the Magic Bean is in an open mind.  Many of us have gained much experience and this experience very often tells us how things should or should not be, sometimes even how ideas would not work.

Over time, this negativity builds up until it not only affects our belief in our own dreams but our attitude towards others and their ideas.

The magic of the bean therefore rsides in the belief that it really is magical.  This is embodied in many concepts such as Edward De Bono’s “Po”, which considers two opposing ideas to be simultaneously true at the same time.  The Magic Bean ask us to imagine a world without constraints.  More importantly, it asks us to remove the constraints that exist within our own minds.
