Stop Complaining - Start Imagining!

You can never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete. -- Buckminster Fuller

Whether listening to politicians, the news, my neighbors or sometimes my own thoughts, one thing comes across quite clearly. Most people don’t want to do the work to create the “new model.” We just want to complain about the old, point fingers and expect someone else to make it all better.
Wouldn’t it be nice if there was someone that could make it all better? Well, there is – and that someone is US!! What ever we’ve been complaining about lately, it’s in our face because it’s up to us to do something about it. The time of passively sitting by is over. 
And where do we do the work that must be done? In Mind, of course. It’s up to us to get our underused imaginations back to work and create the new models. It’s up us to set clear intentions, and give them to the Universe. It’s up to us to trust that Infinite Intelligence knows what It’s doing. And it’s up to us to stop telling the stories of the old models!
Steven Covey writes: "Every human has four endowments- self awareness, conscience, independent will and creative imagination. These give us the ultimate human freedom... The power to choose, to respond, to change." 

What a great message for Independence Day!!


God - the creative intelligence in and behind all things, including us, is urging us to move out of our littleness and step into a greater field of possibility.

Knowing this, I open my heart to Divine Love. This Love fills me with a greater sense of Self than I've ever had before. This Love points the way for me to go, and the Law of Mind makes the way possible. I am ready and willing to let go of all I believe is wrong in my world, and return to the Divine Center where peace resides. As I feel this peace deep within me, I realize I am ready to move forward in my life. I have the courage to do that which is mine to do, and I do it with a willing heart and mind, knowing that as I make this choice, the whole Power of the Universe is behind me. I am making a new model of how to live in and as Spirit, and this is good.

How grateful I am to know that I can speak my word and have it be so. How grateful I am to live in a country that is filled with and encourages possibilities.

I release these words, knowing they are the Truth of my being, and I live from this new vibration with a great sense of joy - the joy of service, and the joy of being served. And so It is.
