The Many Edges of Reality Within Your Imagination!

Reality’s Edges

It’s been said Einstein’s first thoughts on relativity came while observing light from a lamp post glowing through an evening mist. He was fascinated by the streaming light traveling through misty air in the cool evening of a summer’s day. His imagination alive with the possibility of exploring (at that time) what was perceived impossible.

Gazing at the moon this evening, iridescent reflections shimmering on the river, I’m lost in the rapture of my own imagination. I wonder, am I on the edge of a greater awareness of life? Or perhaps some unknown new wonder soon to be experienced. I feel within me a seed of expression wishing to burst forth – If I can but understand the why of it all.

My mind hovers in thoughtful contemplation. I view the mysterious moon through imagination’s eyes. Moonbeams illuminating, ever so faintly, all that I might be – hidden inside – poised on the edges of reality.

A Wish ~ Your Unfulfilled Reality!

image

A wish is an, as yet, unfulfilled reality just lying in wait foryourright moment to make it happen.” ~ Plh

There are those who believe in fate and there are those who believe nothing will happen unless you’re out there making it happen.

For myself, I think it’s somewhere in between the two. Wishing and dreaming often set in  motion the creative application of your imagination. This, in turn, can inspire within you a passion to achieve – the inspiration you’ve been waiting for to make things happen.

The only thing left then, is for you to believe you can do it. And of course you can!!!! For certain. Your wishes, your desires, your reality – YOURS!

Hope your week is going well, take care of you.
With much affection,

The Value of Imagination – Your Creativity and the Written Word.

Albert Einstein said “The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science.” And he should know, being one of the most intelligent scientists in our last century.

When we allow our imagination free rein to explore the unknown, we think thoughts and create ideas that may not have come to mind in an orderly “seeing is believing” mentality. All of us need to function on a daily basis, but how much more wonderful to be able to go beyond the average “every day of things” to see what might lay just beyond …

Creativity functions best when there are no limits imposed on what may or may not be possible. Think on this. Einstein also said “Imagination is more important that knowledge.” And once again, he should know based on his own amazing scientific discoveries.

With all this in mind, allow your inner thoughts some roaming power, jot down creative thoughts and ideas as they come to mind. In fact it’s a great time to explore your own imagination … just imagine what you may find there!

Have a great week ahead and remember to always take care of you. You can’t be there for others if you haven’t taken care of your own needs first!

With affection,

If Your Heart is In Your Dream

How many times in your life have you heard someone say derisively, “you dreamer, you” or “get your head out of the clouds, stop dreaming”.

I’m thinking the most important thing to remember is the DOERS in life all had a dream before they had either a plan or began “doing” for themselves. They dreamt about what they wanted to accomplish and then made it happen; someway, somehow. You need look no further than the hundreds of thousands of quotes by leaders, scientists, philosophers, artists and so on. They had the dream first!

Helen Keller, 1880-1968

Helen Keller comes to mind. Here was a woman, who as a small child, became ill and was struck deaf, blind, and dumb. An unteachable wild child living in emptiness and darkness. But one person, Ann Sullivan, had a dream. Ann dreamed and believed she could help Helen learn to communicate – and she did.

She taught an unteachable child to communicate, and the child learned. And from there, the child developed a dream of her own. To become educated and make a difference in life, and she did. She became well educated and went on to live a happy and purpose filled life. The odds were completely against both of them and it was hard, really hard. But they believed their dreams and pursued until the dreams became reality.

There are so many, many excellent examples of people who had a dream and went on to do great things that they are legend, just two amazing examples are Martin Luther King and Mahatma Gandhi. No need to discuss what they accomplished, you already know.

So the next time you hear someone call you a dreamer, dismiss it. After all, you’re too busy dreaming and imagining your future and what you will achieve.

 

When You Wish Upon A Star
*
When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires
Will come to you
*
If your heart is in your dream
No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star
Like dreamers do
*
Fate is kind
She brings to those who love
The sweet fulfillment of
Their secret longing
*
Like a bolt out of the blue
Fate steps in and pulls you through
When you wish upon a star
Your dream comes true*
*
Dream on fair readers, dream on, let no one stop your dreams from becoming reality.

“New” and what it does for you!

Nothing new under the sun or

… is there?

 

When you’re a child everything is new. Everything. And sparkling eyes look out at the world with wonder. It’s a new place filled with mystery and adventure and magic. Especially magic. All new and wonderful!

And then we grow up and life gets more serious; for some, sooner than for others, wonderment begins to fade until it does seem like there’s nothing new under the sun. But this isn’t true, not really.

Each day you awaken to a NEW day and a new you. And each thought you have (while others may have had it also) it’s a new thought for you. In this new year, how about bringing back some of the magic and wonder into your life? Throw out cynicism and lack of faith. Begin by believing in yourself and what you can do to improve things.

It is a new year and a new day. How about this new you waiting inside? How about a new attitude ~ One filled with gratitude, joy, laughter, lots of love and lots and lots of creativity and magic (those two go together)! Come on, you can do it.

Lets make it happen,

~ Penny

Building Sandcastles … not necessarily a bad thing!

Have you been flexing your imagination lately?

Your mind needs nutrition from many types of sources. One is experience, you know the “hands on” learning type of thing. Another is from performing daily responsibilities in life. And ideally your experience and responsibilities learn to coexist in a comfortable relationship as you become wiser through the doing.

Of course, as we know life isn’t quite that simplistic. We fall down and often no one is around to kiss our “boo-boo’s” to make us feel all better.

This  is where imagination comes in, belonging right there in the mix of hopes, dreams and wishes. We need imagination as a form of mental nutrition/stimulation too. (Some of our past and present geniuses ‘genii’ have often referred to imagination as being exceedingly beneficial in their own works.)

Our imagination allows us to be free from within and often its liberating on the outside too.

So use your imagination, I recommend at least one teaspoon of “magic potion” (your imagination) a day for optimal health!

Have fun dreaming! In your imagination you rule!
