  1. Littlemindedness creeps up on you. I´d almost say that greatmindedness approaches a sense of holy wisdom, when you can pause for that amount of time to think about what to do or say. The tricky thing is how much of that is open to conscious control. The little mind, for some reason, is closer to the controls than the great mind.
