"Ask yourself whether the dream of heaven and greatness should be waiting for us in our graves - or whether it should be ours here and now and on this earth." - Ayn Rand
Why wait to be creators of worlds in some off and far off distance place in the afterlife...? I once read the worlds "God lives in you....AS you." (Eat, Pray, Love) It was an interesting thing to sit and think about. We are taught as we grew that we are children of the creator. A significant part of the universe and all things are connected. So if the creator of all things lives in me, AS me...and I possess direct characteristics of said grand creator, then I should learn to create NOW...and not wait until somewhere beyond the grave.
It IS ours' to create the life we wish to live, to surround ourselves with those that we WANT in our lives, and to chose and execute our plans to live the life we want. This is the time to live and BE!.. To create and build!.. To "LIVE", and not just "endure"...
In a Stephan R. Covey conference that I attended about a year ago, I heard this quote...:
"Creation happens twice. Once in your mind, then in the physical sense."
I love that! I makes me be so much more careful and conscious of my thoughts. Our minds are the drawing boards of life... What we chose to think and dwell on, grows. We MUST fill our thoughts with empowering and uplifting things, and allow the positive to rule our minds, and our hearts. Our emotions are typically the fruits of our very own thoughts. Thoughts are the roots...emotions are the fruits. If you're feeling sad and depressed, change your thought process! The origin of creation (while here on earth) is in our thoughts!
I believe it our choice to wake up every day and chose to contribute and create, and if it's important enough to us,...we WILL find a way. If not, we WILL most likely find an excuse.
Be prayerful and meditative as you seek guidance to create...so that what is created is in harmony with all that serves us in a positive way!
I always welcome your thoughts...
