IN heaven (or in hell for that matter) while necessarily being OUT of your mind.

In a state of losing oneself.

Music, dance, sex/food, art, drugs, religion, and insanity are some of the methods of going in through the out door.
My perception of being born into hell by the age of 2, likely fueled my initial desire to live outside of the box.
The thought patterns, ideas, goals, and actions that I create throughout my LIFETIME are essentially my true dwelling places and can transcend any physical reality - good, bad, or in-between.
I, ultimately, depend on my mind alone to carry me through good times and bad times. The method to my madness makes meaningful relationships challenging in many ways, but it helps me LIVE a life understandable and tolerable to me, yet not necessarily to others. Are we ever truly understood, anyway?

While I strive to understand this existence and find my place in it, my greatest dream is to simply be myself, understood, not defined, and, therefore, not alone.

Try to solve the problem with unorthodox methods. Consider any idea, no matter how unusual.
Solving the difficult riddle required ideas that came from thinking outside of the box.

Old - Phrase in office-speak suggesting the use of unorthodox approaches to solve otherwise difficult problems. Not a bad phrase, but too many pointy-haired-boss types latched on to it and used it as a knee-jerk response when asked for input, thus blanching it of all meaning.

New - Happy-hour phrase meaning "Get your mind off the poontang - we're talking sports now!"
Old - Cube Monkey: Boss, I'd like your input on this problem.
Boss: Think outside of the box, Monkey.
Cube Monkey: Well, I thought you may have some time-saving insight, since you're paid to be my professional superior and all...
Boss: Just think outside of the box, Monkey!
Cube Monkey: Right. Hey! I'll use the fuckyoubossoscope!
Boss: There you go, Monkey!

New - Guy 1: Think the Rams have a chance this year?
Guy 2: It'll be tough, but anybody can make the playoffs in the NFC... What do you think, Trey?
Guy 3: Did you see the ass on that marketing intern? Damn! I could write a poem about that ass!
Guy 1: Hey, Trey... we're over here... football conversation?
Guy 2: Yeah, Trey - Think outside of the box!

An unoriginal phrase/cliche following a conventional way of thinking used to encourage original thought and unconventional thinking, asking you do challenge the paradigm in a phrase that doesn't challenge the paradigm. Saying "Think Outside of the Box" is "Thinking Inside of the Box". This is similar in this aspect to the phrase "avoid cliches like the plague", warning against using cliches through the use of a cliche.
Employee: (quietly) Okay, since you're obviously not...

Ellen: Yeah, that's good advice. Maybe you should take it.

Wow, it was all dark and snuggly inside my Mom but now it's way too bright, too cold, and some asshole is slapping me on the ass. What the Deuce? I'm 'outside the box'!

A metaphor that means don't be mainstream, think freely and creatively. Don't just see the obvious, pay more attention to the content. Don't discount anything as unrelated or unconnected. Make an effort to push your thinking up to and beyond its limit. All the talents that you've developed at school should come in handy when you need to beef up your out of the box thinking skills.
Step back and see if the solution to the problems lie outside the box. One must think outside the box.
