Yesterday was renewed-vision day. The windows were cleaned and I got new glasses—all within the space of four hours. Hot dog—I can see clearly again. Well, at least I think I can. I guess it all depends on how you look at it.
This morning I sat around waiting for inspiration to strike and was rewarded with zip. So I shook up the daily routine and went out for a walk. Usually it’s write first, walk second but apparently, today is shaping up to be a bass ackwards sort of day. So here I sit in thumb-twiddle mode wondering what to talk about today. It could be a very long morning.
While simultaneously thumb twiddling and awaiting inspiration, it occurs to me that maybe the well has run dry. Am I washed up, finished, kaput? Has my daily blog muse walked off the job and left me to my own questionable resources? Now there’s an unsettling thought. That would be tantamount to someone making a decision that affects me without checking in with me first, and I hate it when that happens.
Then it dawns on me that what I think is what I get. If I think the well has run dry, then the well has run dry. It’s the purest, simplest form of creating my own reality. If I add the belief factor in with the thought process, I’m doubled doomed. I’ve shot myself in the foot and that’s the end of my daily blog. The muse has run for her life and I’m left to my own devices.
If, on the other hand, I manage to catch myself red-handed in the act of believing the veracity of a negative thought that I made up in my head, I can nip it in the bud, turn it around, and exchange it for a new thought that uplifts, expands, and supports the idea that the well will never run dry. Aha. I’m back in the blog business.
It also dawns on me that my thoughts are my entire world, but in the overall scheme of the universe, when compared to the whole, my mind and I seem no greater than a feather on the wings of a sparrow.
Yet, if a single thought from one person has a life altering effect upon that person’s life, just imagine the effect that the thoughts of masses of people might have upon the entire universe. Imagine the magnificent creations that would become manifest. Imagine the wonderful new world that we can make up in our minds, just by envisioning them. Imagine joining the power of just one thought with the masses to create an entire new universe.
It’s such a simple concept, but one that requires vigilance and mindfulness to put into action. It’s worth whatever effort it takes—for you, for me, for the world, for the future.
Happy dreaming up and creating a brilliant new reality, everyone!
