The "BOX" refers to virtual experience within the premise of linear time and emotion. All Creation on the other hand, creates itself with nothing to bind it, in any lines or grids. It is not its nature to be bound. Freedom is what nature loves. “Out of the Box Thinking" means viewing reality beyond our limited beliefs, values and perception. When you learn to think outside the box your consciousness moves beyond the boundaries of linear thinking. Out of box thinking is a phrase that explains our mind’s work, when we look at a problem from a new perspective, without pre-conceptions. This is also referred to as lateral thinking. In the corporate world it is quite a fad to use it, but to put it in simpler of words; it is nothing but another name for creative thinking. For the purpose of Psycho-re-orientology and attitudinal correction "Thinking outside the box" means awareness beyond your known self. It is nothing more than turning your acceptance of the unknown possibilities. In the world of metaphysics and spirituality it is referred to as healing and balancing of your emotional needs. The method is to let go. You and everything else around you is nothing but an illusion (Maya). We operate within the frame work of our mind limited by our beliefs and values, formed over a period of time through our limited exposure to different situations and people. This state of mind can be safely termed as limited mind or “The Box”. Moving your core conscious out of the box and dissolving yourself in to the vastness around you, freeing yourself from all the limitations set around you by your beliefs and values is what steping out of the box is. This is it, may it be for reasons of looking beyond limiting concepts and theorys in science and management or about discovering your true self in spirituality.
Here are some examples of out of box thinking. See how the barriers of conventional thinking and logic are being over and out stepped with out of the box answers.

...................So, Do not pack yourself in the box of your own limiting perceptions and offer yourself as a pre-packaged product to be unfolded by others. Be a player in this world. After all you are not a bubble gum to be chewed by others. You are born to chew the bubblegum of life. Learn to do it and never forget that you are your only limitation. Looking within and stepping out of your own self is the only key.
