Why I Wrote – How Frank Lloyd Wright Got Into My Head, Under My Skin And Changed The Way I Think About Thinking, A Creative Thinking Blue Print For the 21st Century – Comments from Sandy Sims

Originally I knew this would be a story of interest to people who follow architecture. After reading Wright’s autobiography I had been struck by the idea that not only was he famous but his drawings at the time were selling at auction for the same price as those of Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo.  He had designed over 1,000 designs but some 500 remained unbuilt. In an “a ha” flash I imagined that a collection of Wright’s unrealized designs built in Hawaii would be stunning.

The pursuit of this idea was so compelling, that I innocently and naively began the journey, and what a journey it was. I was cordially invited into many of Wright’s private homes, to meet their owners, and to hear their stories.  I became friends with those in the Taliesin Fellowship, some of whom were the earliest apprentices to Frank Lloyd Wright. It was a rich journey. While in the beginning I was attracted to the financial rewards that might have accrued, I later became fascinated by the idea of what it would be like to live inside of the space created by both a mystic and a genius. I found out.

The story of the collection idea and what ensued would have been an interesting enough accounting; yet, as I began writing, I found I was telling a larger, perhaps more important, story.

As a society we are facing unprecedented challenges. Technology is compressing our sense of time at a bewildering pace. We face a fragile world economy, a challenged environment, and increasingly more dysfunctional governments. The news media is filled with experts rendering sound bites on diametrically opposed viewpoints. We are on information overload resulting in a kind of psychic numbing. Depending entirely on our linear thinking patterns to guide our daily lives no longer seems to work like it once did. We must now learn the nature of our intuitive world, how to trust it and how to use it.

This book is an accounting of just such a journey.

I considered myself your average guy next door.  Not gifted, but willing to work hard.  Shortly after having a health crisis in my early 30’s, and struggling to make  a go of an advertising agency, I met a psychiatrist on a blind date.  That was a game changer. I  was thrust “down the rabbit hole,” the metaphorical journey into the unknown,  into a world of  self-discovery amidst people with entirely new methods of thinking.

I was introduced to  consciousness changing thinking patterns, and through trial and observation these concepts slowly  gave me the  willingness to act in the face of increasingly more uncertainty.  Because we are in watershed times, I felt  this accounting would be an intriguing and useful story to hear. Before entering the “rabbit hole” my thinking patterns and actions had produced results. But I didn’t understand why.  Once into it I could understand more of the why, but there was trepidation and lots of it. Had I not been immersed in these creative thinking patterns, the courage and trust to seize the Frank Lloyd Wright collection idea would have eluded me.

We can harness manifesting principles, learn to trust our intuition and develop greater understanding of this new territory. We can learn to make our ordinary daily life extraordinary. We may even discover that what we consider to be important goals are only the inducements to take a far more richer journey.

About Sandy Sims

Sandy Sims was raised and educated in the South. After serving as a Naval Officer and finishing graduate business school, he followed a dream to live in Hawaii. Purchasing a one way ticket he found that his dream included building one the state’s largest advertising agencies. The crisis of personal health and business setbacks opened the way to larger spiritual dimensions including a long association with the Caddy family, founders of the Findhorn Spiritual Community in Scotland His book, ”How Frank Lloyd Wright Got Into My Head, Under My Skin And Changed The Way I Think About Thinking, A Creative Thinking Blue Print For the 21st Century,”  is a memoir of his journey culminating in a 20 year project with the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation.

He has collaborated with Psychiatrist, Kerry Monick, and authored, Creative Thinking For The 21st Century, An Experiential Guidebook. Accepting the science that our intention does indeed affect the material world, it addresses “what to be thinking about, how to shape these thoughts, and what might be the best way to avoid unintended consequences.

Sandy lectures, writes and coaches regarding developing our creative interpersonal skills.
