Imagination

Today’s “Pay Forward” gift is – imagination. Imagination like all human attributes we come equipped with is intended for our fulfillment; it is a creative power. Too often we misuse these blessed gifts. The wonderful lyrics from a Doris Day movie: “When I was just a little boy, I asked my mother who will I be? Will I be handsome? Will I be rich? Here’s what she said to me - Que Sera Sera -Whatever will be will be - The future’s not ours to see…”  I used my imagination to paraphrase her song. When I was just a little boy, I asked myself who will I be? Will I be handsome? Will I be rich? Here what I said to me – NO! I bought into the illusion that to put myself down was a sign of humility, but it is not. Alcoholics Anonymous has taught me to listen when others are sharing. Of course, I can’t listen to others when I am deafened by the hum of my own voice. I am often surprise when I do listen to others that everybody is talented, original and has something important to say. When one speaks from their heart, mind and soul, it comes across like a parable, filled with intuitive wisdom no matter how long they are sober. All created things begin in our silent, invisible world within. When we take action on our imagination, we confirm it. Today let us use our imagination to set the universal power into motion for the life we want. Thy Love, Thy Will be done.
