IT HAS POTENTIAL TO CHANGE YOUR LIFE.

Possibility is a guide offered to you by a fellow pilgrim on life’s journey.

John’s goal is to uproot your sense of self that keeps you from the real opportunity for meaningful change in your life.”

THE TRAP OF OUR STORY My story, your story, our collective stories and their collective stories – any story ever told or yet to be told – is the trap most of us are entangled in today or will live in tomorrow. A story can be a catalyst for healing, or it can keep us stuck in anxiety, worry and upset. Useful stories can be signposts, pointing towards a deeper reality within the teller and listener. Unhelpful stories come from and feed upon fears and myths existing within our memories. These are our personal, family and cultural stories. Innocently we… Read more »

Many many years ago when I a young fella growing up in rural Ireland I was the second eldest of ten children I learned to make myself useful and one thing I was good at was baking bread it kept me in my mother’s good books most of the time. Roll on many many years now I am an ould fella and I still like to bake bread a bit of flour a bit of wholemeal a pinch of salt and bread soda some water mix it up put it in the oven wait an hour you have a loaf… Read more »

I loved this short video, and think Liz and her team in the UK are bringing some great stuff to the world. Regardless of whether we ‘think’ from a 3 Principles perspective and believe that deeper fresh thought comes from an intelligence behind life; or ‘think’ from a Possibility perspective, and just know that fresh, insightful thoughts come to everyone; the overlap between the two is the presence and activity of thought beyond whatever we have entertained up until each moment. Kimberley Hare clearly had some of those thoughts which brought a new and deeper perspective of the thinking that… Read more »

Clarity (Posted Wednesday morning, 6 November 2019) ******* We are all just energy, looking for a way to express ourselves. Life is the constant, permanent, creative, supportive, natural energy that we are all given at birth, that we each use, as we choose, through our lives. Life operates according to a set of universal principles, which essentially control how we are able to function, as we do. These principles work in coordination with one another, and control life, and the universes, just as they control how our bodies are able to function through the food we eat and drink, and… Read more »

Hello I have a copy of the book. Occasionally I open it randomly to any page. I then place my finger on the page and read the first sentence that I’m pointing to. If there’s time on my side, I go on to read the paragraph. Or the entire page. Sometimes the complete chapter. When doing this, it’s amazing how often the content has direct relevance to my situation at that given moment. Try it. I’m going to pause now (from writing this post) and open the book (or Guide). I will then record below the first sentence I see.… Read more »

THE BEAUTY OF TWO WINGS. Acting independently – sharing the same goal. Both sides of politics seem trapped in outdated, inflexible, or mangled ideologies. That creates problems like… well, you name them – they fill the news and social media channels all day, every day. Is seeing Possibility the solution? When listening to others – free of our beliefs, opinion and judgments – we are likely to be listening from the Realm of Possibility. We discover, at those precious times, that those on the opposite side of the divide, also possessing the heart of a decent person, have good and… Read more »

Something else I would like to share. Recently I have noticed a new openness in myself to my fellow human beings. This has come without conscious intention or desire. I suppose it is simply the logical result of ever increasing insights from Possibility that appear to neutralise, perhaps erase, my previously held conditioning, in this instance, around people. One insight that I know had a big impact came as a result of a task requested as part of a month long online writing program I did with the Australian Writers’ Centre. The task was to do something that would make… Read more »

Hello everyone, I thought I would share something that, as a result of events and conversations over the last few days, I now see more clearly. It is about how we are all living out what makes sense to us in the moment, and how alongside that configuration, Possibility also exists. Earlier this week, I had the privilege of meeting a gorgeous young man for a professional consultation. We met to see if I could shed any light on why he didn’t want to do some elements of his school work and why some resistance to school had crept in.… Read more »

Hello, I have just come across John’s work through a friend that had couple’s counseling with him years ago. She highly recommended him to me and so I’m wondering if couple’s counselling is still available or if the workshop is the way forward these days? If it us available, woukd it be possible on Skype? Many thanks, Bron

I have been reflecting on something for a while now and I am going to try to articulate what is in my mind this may not work but it might sow a seed in someone else’s mind feel free to expand on the conversation. The impossible mind is a black and white mind it needs to know answers it needs to be on top of its game it’s a mind that suffers from anxiety it’s not a rested mind and it can be severe and of course it may well be an extremely intelligent mind and it can be a… Read more »

Dear Visitors We are delighted that, with still three weeks to go, that our first Workshop already has 14 people booked to attend – a wonderful response. And there is still room for a few more to book. With our website receiving a record number of visitors this month, our subscription list growing, over 150 books dispatched, and the Workshop promising to be a transformative weekend for a keen cohort of explorers, the Realm of Possibility project is gaining traction daily. With only 3 weeks to go to our very first weekend workshop we are much encouraged. I look forward… Read more »

Below is an edited extract from the ‘About Possibility’ page on this website. It’s interesting to see John’s original thinking (the written pages for this website and posted late late last year) versus his musings in the latest Possibility articles. Clearly, there’s consistency of message. At times, John’s message appears to me blindingly clear and ever-so-simple. Yet, by its very nature I suppose, my clarity of Thought usually evaporates into meandering complexity almost immediately. I guess it takes constant maintenance and vigilance to see Possibility. Here’s John…. ” We are creating our personal reality every moment, forming a continuous and… Read more »

How clear? How simple? ************************* Nothing is permanent, because everything is thought created, by you !! Through the gift of thought, you only create 100% of your life experience ! Can you accept that ? The responsibility, I mean? *** You do not have a choice really, because, like gravity, you just are responsible. There is no ability to avoid responsibility – just an illusion, that you can avoid it, which you have created, as well. Case closed. Enjoy or suffer – that is all there is, and ever will be. Be grateful or not, that is always the question… Read more »

John when you talk about the realm of Possibility could it be said that we are seeing past belief, into who or what we truly are to where nothing is personal ?

Listen to the third section of the interview with John earlier this year. Here he talks about what we have already learned as being ‘on tap’ rather than ‘on top’ and answers one woman’s question about what is Possibility? ‘A fearless idea’ resonates. A state of fearlessness ….

Thanks Jen to you and your husband for ‘cutting and pasting’ – in a busy world this helps a lot!

Many years ago when I was farming during springtime I would get out my old Fordson tractor and I would plough a paddock. Within a few minutes, a flock of seagulls would descend from the sky and devour worms and insects in the upturned soil. We all plough our own furrow on our journey towards spiritual evolution. Each of us experiences emotions unique to ourselves as we plough our furrow. It is by listening to these emotions that guide us along our furrow or journey and it is with a kind heart and a gentle mind that will allow us… Read more »

In this segment, John talks about where his mind was at when he had a deeper insight whilst in Peru. It reminds me of the contemplative conditions under which Syd Banks has his big insight – only there is a difference. John has seen and spoken about more clearly the transitional nature of that insight. In a recent email conversation, John talked further about this … ‘I have the ‘habit’ of looking within (to the yet to be seen) rather than looking to my memory. And my memory can and does lead me to Possibility so long as I see… Read more »

Dear John, Within the Articles (found on this website) I stumbled across “Letters to Michael. In the letters, you write with determined focus around the concept of “what really works and what really matters”. It appears the letters were written some time ago. I say that because when I read other website content, I notice the “what works/what matters” paradigm is not really mentioned again. For an idea that seemed to fill the horizons of the Letters, it guess I expected the concept to appear again in your other musings. I was wondering if that’s because your thoughts on this… Read more »

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 exists beyond what is currently claimed to be irrefutable scientific facts and evidence-based truths. ✴ 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.… Read more »

POSSIBILITY
Beyond our frozen fears and imagined needs lies another realm,
a realm unrivalled.

Beyond our beliefs, opinions and judgements is another state,
a state of wisdom and common sense.

Beyond acceptance and tolerance is another world,
a world of love and understanding.

There, an all-embracing warmth melts the edges of division,
dissolving the illusion of you and me, of them and us.

This internal, eternal universe is home, is love,
is life unbridled – the realm of Possibility.

For more on Possibility, please explore this website and feel free to leave a reply to this comment or start your own thread.

Hello to all Visitors, I was included in an email and have decided to copy and paste John’s comments in that email. The discussion was regarding a professional Golfer who had reported on reaching a “state of flow” and so had played a Round of Golf unbelievably well. In this reply, I feel John himself has hit a sweet spot and explained the concepts of Possibility in a particularly fresh and revealing manner……… Hi Tony Thank you for your email. I’ve copied those involved with the Possibility Project (and BCC’s a couple of others interested in this understanding), as your… Read more »

Dear John just a little something that I have been reflecting on…. No Evil that man can do can diminish LIFE…. No good that man can do can add to to LIFE …any deminishment or improvement exists only in the realm of the unconscious mind….. The conscious mind and LIFE are one

Dear John Thank you for your email it ties in perfectly with something I have been reflecting on for a while now and that is the innocent perfection of the spirit of life that flows through all life in all its creations. Yes mass murderers may commit terrible crimes but they die in innocent perfection because in their unconscious state they were lost from their innocent perfection they were simply divided but the spirit of life that flowed through them is no less perfect than if it flowed through a person that we might refer to as a saint .… Read more »

Something I recently posted on my business FB page ‘Three Principles Psychology’ and in ‘3 Principles in Australia’. ‘For anyone who hasn’t read ‘Possibility … a state of mind’ by John A Wood, I heartily encourage you to do so. Since reading it 6 weeks ago, I have had the privilege of working alongside its author and several 3P colleagues. For those of you who don’t know, John was one of the original pioneers of 3P in Australia. But he has moved on to a freshness I was definitely ready for. Never have I found myself so at ease with… Read more »

Hi, John I have of late been reflecting on the value of a kind heart and mind when it comes to the reflective process around gaining an understanding of the fact, that we think. I ask myself the question, if it were not for my facility of mind would I be able to have this experience of my reality manifesting itself to me moment to moment in the form of thought? I find that if I reflect on this question it is best done from a kind heart and mind I have to give away all will power all need… Read more »

John I really enjoyed your explanation to Dean’s query, and even more joy for Gale and those fortunate to be a part of the moment; no doubt quite special. I can equate life to being at an amusement park…while the contents of the park remains constant for myself, and indeed for us all, this content can be viewed differently from the entrance to the park, on the Ferris Wheel, on the Carousel or on the Roller Coaster. All one’s viewpoint and importantly their interpretation of their viewpoint is crafted by their Thought/thought. Albert Einstein said “there are only two ways… Read more »

What I would like to talk about is the sweetness of life from having gained even a little understanding of how via my facility of mind I create my reality and how claiming ownership of… Read more »

John, truly brilliant. I have just this minute, finished your book from A to Z, appendices included. Really, really 1st class. I was wanting to write a book about how we function, but you have just done it !! What a gem, and a life’s work. I have recently seen everything that the human has created, as just that – incredible, but always possible, for any one of us to achieve – it is such a healthy way of seeing the human potential being manifested. Well done, John, and well done to your entire production team. A great accomplishment, which… Read more »

What exactly do you mean by Thought with a Capital T (as opposed to thought with a small t). I am assuming it’s beyond the purely grammatical? I do have your book, but interested to hear it fresh from the source if you have time. It seems simple and complex at the same time.

DeanG

Keeping our “knowledge on tap, not on top” I find to be a most interesting and revealing insight. If I can remember that simple adage, I’m sure it will help my creative thinking. Unburdened from the past, I can explore fresh ideas without prejudice. It’s a freedom to walk new paths, yet instills a sense confidence knowing I can still access my well practiced ‘set plays’ (if needed).

For someone new to the ideas expressed in your book, where and how would suggest they begin the journey if in fact it can be termed a journey

This forum is offered for you to engage in the exploration, with fellow travellers, of Thought (with a capital T) and our awareness of its omniscience in our lives, via our thinking (with a small t).
Please feel free to pose questions, make comment and offer observations. Whenever there is a need, or if you specifically ask me to, I will respond.
Warmly … John
