. . . that we still have the will to imagine.
I have been doing a lot of soul searching lately, and no, that is not why I have been neglecting my writing. I have not been writing because I have had nothing to share. This is a Blog after all, it is an open forum to share our thoughts, the ones we think the universe would like to hear about, and although I have kept busy with things, the universe is a busy place, so I was being thoughtful.
I am engaged in a new program (Further Education Society of Alberta) at a local facility with my Mentor and Co-facilitator Lois, and in this program I am seeing things a little differently. The participants are an awesome group and enjoy the fact that we are there for them, but my outlook has changed. I am looking at life a little differently, or should I say a part of life, which I think we lose at a very early age. This part of life I am focusing on is our ability to use our imagination.
We lose our imagination when we start school, (in my opinion) we are placed at a desk among our peers and we are told to learn, and for the next 12 years straight our minds are filled with facts, figures, information and opinions, we lose our imagination completely. Oh I know we get caught day dreaming a lot, but that is not the same thing. Now, some fifty years later I am finally able to imagine again, to run through puddles like a grizzly chasing salmon, to see shapes in the clouds and imagine myself flying through them with outstretched ebony wings.
The “key” I think, to enjoying life and being happy is to simply imagine you are, but without the ability to imagine, we are doomed. I have the absolute privilege to have the opportunity to chat with some very wonderful people in my day-to-day adventures, and I am appreciating the fact that most everyone I talk to is thrilled to learn of my thoughts on our imagination. It seems as though all it takes is the simple turn of a tiny key to unlock a gift that each and every one of us is born with. Now if we can attach this tiny key to the smiles we share in the wind, the world will be that much happier.
On another note, my little books are now available (paperback editions) through Chapters/Indigo and Create Space (change the little grey box in the upper right from “site” to “store”) and the Hard Cover Boxed Set of Series One is available at all the New Age, Spiritual, Mind and Body shops in Calgary and surrounding area. Please see my website for locations and stores. Plus I can share with the Universe that my little inspirational books have made it over to Japan, this is just the start of a wonderful adventure to come I imagine.
Stay tuned for information on Series Two.
If you want to find your happiness, just imagine that you are
Once you do it looks good on you, now its time to touch that star.
