Calling All Imaginations!

For some, imagining something into being does not feel active enough. We are programmed to believe that only by pushing and working hard can we make something come about. To simply imagine and feel the reality of what you imagine seems too easy. But what is wrong with easy?

Imagining is active. It also leads to action. But not the kind of action that we are used to. It does not lead to struggle and frustration. Imagination leads to inspiration. When you become inspired you take action joyfully and excitedly with a feeling of success before it even happens. It feels like being propelled with very little effort at all.

I am writing today because I feel that we must all commit to imagining a safer, kinder, more compassionate world right now. This will not cost you any money or take anything from you. I ask that whenever you hear of something happening in the world that you would not want to happen to you that you use your time, not in sorrow or fear, but imagining it the way you would want it to be. Imagine it so beautiful that it involuntarily makes you smile.

There is nothing that a multitude of like minded individuals can't accomplish. There are no miracles for those who know the power of imagination.

"Before you judge others..."

This has been all over the internet, but in case you haven't seen it. It's an eye opener :)

"Before you judge others or claim any absolute truth, consider that you can see less than 1% of the electromagnetic spectrum and hear less than 1% of the acoustic spectrum. As you read this, you are traveling at 220 kilometers per second across the galaxy. 90% of the cells in your body carry their own microbial DNA and are not "you". The atoms in your body are 99.9999999999999999% empty space and none of them are the ones you were born with, but they all originated in the belly of a star. Human beings have 46 chromosomes, 2 less than the common potato. The existence of the rainbow depends on the conical photo receptors in your eyes; to animals without cones, the rainbow does not exist. So you don't just look at a rainbow, you create it. This is pretty amazing, especially considering that all the beautiful colors you see represent less than 1% of the electromagnetic spectrum."  ~ Anonymous

Quotes and health tip of the day... 9/5/13

Never forget that anticipation 
is an important part of life. 
Work's important, family's important, 
but without excitement, you have nothing. 
You're cheating yourself 
if you refuse to enjoy what's coming.
     ~ Nicholas Sparks

Plant seeds of expectation in your mind; 
cultivate thoughts that anticipate achievement.
 Believe in yourself as being capable of
 overcoming all obstacles and weaknesses.
      ~ Norman Vincent Peale

Some part of me can't wait to see 
what life's going to come up with next! 
Anticipation without the usual anxiety. 
And underneath it all is the feeling 
that we all belong here, 
just as we are, right now.     
     ~ Alexander Shulgin

Health Tip:   HAIR LOSS: If you've ruled out other causes of hair loss, such as stress, overuse of hair-care products, and certain medications and diseases such as hypothyroidism, consider supplementing with evening primrose oil. It's a good source of gamma-linolenic acid, an essential fatty acid that's needed for hair growth and is hard to get from your diet. Experts recommend taking 500 milligrams twice a day; expect to wait eight weeks to see results. ~from Whole Living, body and soul in balance

Quotes and health tip of the day... 9/3/13

Dominion over your experience doesn't come
 with age, spirituality, or even gratitude. 
In fact, it doesn't come at all. 
You were born with it, and you use it 
every moment of every day, whenever you say, 
"I will... I am... I have..." 
And for that matter, whenever you say, 
"It's hard... I'm lost... I don't know..." 
Careful where you point that thing! 
     ~Mike Dooley

My late friend Frank, one of the wisest 
most enlightened men who ever lived 
only had one prayer: 
protect me from all time-wasters.
     ~ Stephen Russell 

We must get out of our heads
and free our souls.
World woes have no power
over a multitude of freed souls.
     ~ Angie Ducharme

Quotes of the day... 9/2/13

When we are children 
we seldom think of the future. 
This innocence leaves us free 
to enjoy ourselves as few adults can. 
The day we fret about the future is the day 
we leave our childhood behind.
     ~ Patrick Rothfuss

Imagining and taking free moving action
are very different from worrying.
     ~ Angie Ducharme

How often have you heard of an adult
who becomes what they imagined
and played at as a child?  The power
of imagination never leaves us.
     ~ Angie Ducharme
