The Magic of Imagination


The biggest tool I bring to my life's journey is my imagination. My soul celebrates with it, dances and prances with it. My imagination is the creator of many of my magical questions. It is what allows me to soar through possibilities and wonder at my options. It awakens a special creative focus within me that when I spread that through my solutions and the mystery unfolds!

When I play with my imagination I entertain new qualities I can bring to my day. Through my imagination's view I see with a new perspective. When I bring my imagination to my life's journey I can become an adventurer as I explore and uncover patterns, concepts, processes and energies of my life. I delight in my passions and uncover possibilities that often seem hidden from my realistic view of life.

When I do not take my imagination out to my day's work I find that I feel one-dimensional. I don't go nearly as deep as I can. I feel flat. Life sometimes needs this jolt of energy to keep me from getting stuck and taking things too literal.

My soul thrives in imagination. It recognizes it as potential energy to expand in, to play with, to challenge things over and to step boldly into. Living with imagination keeps me vibrantly multidimensional and awake. When I choose imagination as a means of taking on a situation or a task in my day I bring in energies that create, they help manifest, they see beauty and love, they find the miracles, and the change and shift things. My conditions are altered, I re-write my past scenarios and find potential, and my divine essence blossoms.

Imagination; one of the greatest gifts I have been given. It is vital to the fullness of my life. It is the breath that sets me sailing into the unknown with hope and wonder. It is the fire that fuels my inner light and my passions. It is the delight that forms when I recognize the wonder shimmering throughout my day.

The Beginner's Mind


Do you remember the curiosity you had as a child? Do you recall the hours lost in playtime, the pretend friends, the stuffed animals that spoke to you and the fantasy land you would visit after reading a favorite storybook? As children we all had what Zen refers to as the beginner's mind. This part of our mind has not been lost, but for some, it does need to be welcomed back.

Over time our mind begins to fill up with logic, with theory, with facts. All important in the evolution of the mind, but not more important than radiance and vibrancy of the fantasy and pretend world. Both should be equally valued. But, in our society, knowledge seems to be favored as the more valued wisdom.

Wisdom can be found in the creative. We just need to be seek it! We need to value its unique flavor, it colorful perspective and its vital energy. Without this form of wisdom in our life we are only partially full with our gifts and only part of the way into our energetic resources.

The beginner's mind of a child means that we are open to the wonders of the world. We see life with awe and fascination. We truly believe anything and everything is possible. We embrace adventure, spending each day discovering and experiencing new things!

If we can remember to keep this wisdom alive in our lives and foster it, life is very different. Possibilities and opportunities surround us. The Universe showers upon us gifts and lessons that thrill our soul and bring brilliance to our life. Miracles are around every corner. We begin to see life so differently when we bring this form of our wisdom into our daily life.

Education is an important part of our society. It serves us well and allows us to be trained and in service to others. It creates solutions and asks important questions. It is highly valued. But look beyond this academic wisdom. Don't let it stile your beginner's mind from seeking the joy and appreciation of life. Don't forget to dream and be curious. Bring your radiant wisdom into your day and watch what happens. It is the juice of passion and the quickening energy of growth. If you want your life to expand to the far reaches of your imagination, show up with your beginner's mind, nurture and cultivate it and you will not be disappointed.
