“A drum and a mouth-to play music and sing. Use your imagination to create happiness.”
A Buddhist saying
The greatest tool that you have is your imagination. You all have one, however, some put it to use more than others. There have always been the great ones whose imagination has taken them from ordinary to extraordinary. They are the ones who dreamt that they could fly like birds before the first flight. They are the ones who have gone to the moon in their mind before the actual first journey. They are the ones who visualized a world made smaller by enhanced means of communication before the first phone appeared. They are the ones who have imagined a world brought together to share love and celebrate the beauty of differences before a magical world appeared where many from all over could gather and enjoy. There are so many wonderful things our imagination can do, so many wonderful places our minds can go. If you just surrender to it, you will be surprises the joy it will bring. Places where our hearts find delight. Visualizing all the possibilities never hindered by any of the limitations. You don’t have to go far, the happiness that emerges with your imagination lies within you. There is such profound potential to the human spirit, regardless of past history, present beliefs or future contemplations. Just look at a child as he or she plays. Dancing with the snowflakes, singing to the tunes that emerge from nature or creating a world of joy by allowing their minds to be free to experience it. Just give them a drum and they will find a way to use it to create something that allows their inner happiness to break through. As adults, you are just a grown up child. Still with the capabilities to use your imagination to create your own brand of happy if you just let go for a moment and do it without judgments. Simply put, if offered the drum and bolstered by your voice, take advantage and let your imagination take over. Then decide to be a great one who shares their own music with the world. Without knowing, that first step has already taken you from ordinary to extraordinary because there is power in beginning. And in this season of magic and believing, the gift of your imagination is miraculous as you just see where it can take you! When you allow, you have given yourself the quickest route to happy because that state has always been yours for the taking. You now have empowered yourself to imagine the great one within.
