"In my dream the Angel shrugged and said, "If we fail this time, it will be a failure of imagination." And then she placed the world gently in the palm of my hand." - Brian Andreas
Our imagination can take us into the fear of failure or into the bliss of success.
I was sharing with my dear friend once and I was expressing fear about something or another. He stopped me and said, "What are you doing?! You are creating with the words coming out of your mouth!"
My imagination was going towards failure, towards the fear, and I was putting it out into the world through my words. It does take strength and discipline to go towards the positive vision. Even if you are deep in the fear, steer the ship towards the positive. Like a large ocean liner it may take a while for the ship to turn after you turn the wheel...but it will turn.
Like my friend also said, "Don't be stupid. ALWAYS win in your fantasy."
May you create beauty and harmony with your imagination and may it move before you out into the world.
Peace inside of me and peace in the world.
Peace be still.
Art by Gustave Moreau, Jacob and the Angel, 1874-1878
