Imagination is necessary for creativity, compassion, human connection, and our ability to connect to the “mystery of life”. The Native Americans (which I am deeply connected to) hold an all-encompassing belief that faith, practice and imagination work in unity. Through this unity, we learn in a “spiritual way” to use our own sacred imagination when communicating with self and others. This is applicable to all forms of communication – including those crazy fictional “stories” (commonly known as BS) we create and allow to ramble around in our head 24/7.

When we create fictional stories, the trail markers of what “really happened” disappear. A brave creator will step into the wild unknown with enough faith to know the imagination will provide exactly what is needed. Now that’s an exercise in trust, deep listening, and active open-minded creation. The critical point is how to learn the difference between truthful chatter and BS. When we force “truth” it cannot be attained – when we have no expectation we receive exactly what we need. This truth applies to healing as well – you must truthfully want to heal to heal.

Where does wisdom come from you ask?
I’ll quote Ram Dass

“THE MOST EXQUISITE PARADOX… AS SOON AS YOU GIVE IT ALL UP, YOU CAN HAVE IT ALL. AS LONG AS YOU WANT POWER, YOU CAN’T HAVE IT. THE MINUTE YOU DON’T WANT POWER, YOU’LL HAVE MORE THAN YOU EVER DREAMED POSSIBLE.”

To me, that means it’s already in each of us – the trick is to let it find you without judgement. Then truth flows throughout the universe with all the love and trust that resides within your soul.

    1. Thanks Rob. My whole life I’ve had this inner knowing that everything we need is within us. When I went on a purposeful journey to GO FIND IT, it hid. Everyday my request is whatever I need FINDS ME in its perfect timing. It’s like a dam broke open when I started that.

      You, I and many others know deep pain. We can’t heal in a vacuum. WE NEED EACH OTHER.

      Stay cool.

      1. Yes, indeed. Unlike Carlos Castenada, who went into the desert ate peyote buttons, and searched for divinity, we don’t have that luxury. We need to quiet the mind and turn our eyes and thoughts inward for everything we truly need. I am right in the lane with you Dr! Thanks for the thoughts.

  1. I love this. Sometimes I feel like I try really hard to make “things” happen, but I get disappointed when they don’t. When I use positive energy and relax, “things” come to me. I attract what I want rather than chasing after it. I hope that makes sense! 🙂 Nice meeting you!

    1. Very nice meeting YOU! What you shared is so true. This morning during my meditation, I “heard” – Being is Seeing. Am going to write a blog on that because the simplicity of it and the applicability of it to EVERYTHING is profound.

      My sincere thanks for following my blog and commenting! Comments rock! They teach us all. 🙂

      1. Thank you, Debbie! I’m looking forward to your post. Being is seeing. I completely agree! I meditate while I run, and it really helps me to be calm and grounded. I spend time in gratitude and picture what it is that I want rather than stressing over it. It has helped a lot. Stress never brings anything good!
