Imagination Sparks Creativity
All Around You Waits Imagination
Imagination is all around you, its energy moving through your mind, body and soul like a soft breeze through a porch screen. Time does not exist where you're not connected directly to imagination. You may think the imagination connection is turned off, but no it's still humming along waiting for you to tap into it.
You can take your imagination for a walk or put a saddle on it and ride it to the edge of creativity, ball it up and play a game of cosmic hoops that makes you the star of the universe. In another flash you can make your Imagination as small as an atom with 4 little wheels that will drive you around like a quantum taxi careening off electrons and quarks.
In Zen some talk about having 64 moments in the time it takes to snap your fingers and in each one of those moments the universe is created new. Imagination is always arising.
It may be everything or it may be nothing, it's up to you.
10 Minutes to a Finding It
where did I put my imagination
I found my car keys the other day in a flower pot, the day before I found a little bit of serenity as I watched the first buds of spring arise to life. But, I can't find my imagination. I'm in a creative slump, a desert bereft of imagination is engulfing me into its stifling arms.
Does the above sentence remind you of yourself? Do you find yourself bumping into walls and forgetting peoples names or maybe you wake at night wondering where your imagination, where your creative spark went.
Well cheer up there are lots of ways to find that poor lost imagination of yours. What you need to keep in mind is that it's not lost, just misplaced.
