Imagine, If You Will

If it’s true that your thoughts affect your experience – which it is – and if it’s true that you can think – i.e. imagine – consciously, then it follows that you can consciously affect your experience by means of imagination. Your imagination casts your own personal spell. So what kind of spell do you want to cast? Do you want to live half-asleep, as though ensorcelled? To live in conflict, as though bedeviled? To experience wonder, as though charmed?

Note that little magic phrase: as though. As though is a glittering gateway into the imagination. Go ahead, step inside. See the world as though seeing stardust. Look at the soil: stardust. Look at the ocean: stardust. Look in the mirror: stardust. Stardust eats breakfast. Stardust gets great ideas. Stardust follows through. Stardust has stardust eyes that shine with possibility.
