Today’s Quote: Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine and at last you create what you will. ~George Bernard Shaw

 

Today’s Affirmation: My imagination is fertile and my life is rich; all is good in my world today.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: There are but three stages to creation: Imagination, expectancy and outcome.  There is no will involved except Divine Will; there is certainly no effort involved.  Expectancy is the passion that plays the game before the field is even prepared.  It sees itself at the top when others only see clouds; no effort, no will.

Today’s Quote: We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing. ~George Bernard Shaw

 

Today’s Affirmation: I laugh and play my way through the serious work of this day; I make of myself a joyous song.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Anyone who believes the practice of spirituality is serious is not particularly enlightened spiritually.  So since, judging by how serious most of us are, we might as well give up on the serious practice of spirituality and just start enjoying life; through this playful practice the serious devotee may yet stumble into enlightenment.

Today’s Quote: You see things; and you say: “Why?” But I dream things that never were; and I say: “Why not?” ~George Bernard Shaw

 

Today’s Affirmation: I am the engine of creativity, God in, God out; and great things are born of my God breath.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: The challenge is rarely in the insight, the vision or the dream.  It is almost always in the perseverance; in the follow through.  Great people are people who heard the whisper and then built the spire, who laid one brick at a time toward their vision until they stood in the empire of their own creativity.
