"Brimming Full with Innovation..."

Imagine for a moment.  Close your eyes and see your own world...
*
In his “Ancient Secrets of Success for Today’s World”, author Tulshi Sen clearly reveals that when we are in charge of our own thinking, all realms of possibilities open up to us. Without limits, our expanding imagination can take us to new heights and experiences that we once thought impossible or “fantastical”. Singing and songwriting have helped me tremendously to stretch my thoughts when times were painful or hard. This song in particular came at a time when I found it challenging to embrace the idea that life would open up more joy to me than I had ever experienced. The loss of my husband and the lack of clarity of what I wanted to do with my life made it tremendously challenging to be open to the idea that we can overcome and conquer any circumstance.

Yet a genuine desire to overcome temporary sadness continued. Deep inside I knew that what the ancients taught was true. “Consciousness creates reality.” Writing and singing made it easier to work with my longing to embrace life beyond the limitations of my mind. I always knew in my heart that death is not the end, but my feelings of attachment and longing for love often blocked my ability to see a bigger picture. This song was a cry for help to my heart to show me my connection to Consciousness. Night after night, this song would soothe and comfort my ache. It would nurture my determination to search honestly within the depths of my soul to find what I still really wanted to experience. How many nights my feelings soared into abandon after singing this song over and over and over. I knew the words were true. I know they are true. A new star rises in our heart every time we embrace what we truly desire. It takes tremendous courage and honesty. Then from deep within the center of our being, wondrous transformations take place.

Today as I head into the anniversary of my appearance on this earth, I pass on these words to you. (Very shortly many of these songs will be available for you to listen to. Maybe they will inspire you too.) Today’s art posting is an extension of the joy that fills my life today. The timeless words of author Tulshi Sen echo in my heart: “We must release ourselves from this self-imposed dream that surrounds us at this moment, and form a Vision of the reality that we truly desire.”

May you always celebrate your dreams with abandon and complete faith.

Imagine for a moment
Close your eyes and see your own world
What do you want to be
What do you want to do
What do you want to have
In this freedom to dream your own world…?

Imagine for a moment
Close your eyes and see the children
What do they want to be
What do they want to do
What do they want to have
in this freedom to dream their own world…?

There’s a new light on the horizon
Dawning the beginning of a new day
Brimming full with innovation
Feel the sweet inspiration
Touching your soul

Where we dream of peace
Where we dream of joy
And we dream in freedom
To build our own world

Imagine for a moment
As you close your eyes that very last time
That you became all you most wanted to be
You live your life in liberty
To dream and be

Now you follow that new star on the horizon
Dawning the beginning of a new day
Brimming full with innovation
Feel the sweet inspiration
Touching your soul

Where we dream of peace
And we dream of joy
And we dream in freedom
To build our own world.

Thankyou for your explosions of digital color. I'm re-engaging creatively, and seeing your recent work cheered me up immensely. Also made me think "aha!" Why do we sometimes make creating seem so grim and dutiful when it can be such glorious fun?
