Space for Big Ideas

If you have a big idea, it will not fit into a small space.

Mainly, the space you give your ideas is in your mind plus the amount of time you spend thinking and dreaming about them.

After you start writing about them, you may begin collecting the things you need to make them.

You may collect materials and make lots and lots of samples as you practice and refine the experience of doing what you love.

You may create a website to showcase your work.

You may rent a booth at a craft fair or Farmer’s Market.

You may offer workshops.

As you spend time and effort pleasing just yourself with what you do, it will grow in the most appropriate and delightful ways.

Keep pleasing yourself.

Other’s opinions will just slow you down.

Your destination is bigger and farther than anyone else can see, since they can only see the steps you have already taken.

Keep producing your short-term projects on the way to your long-term ones.

You will create the space you need for every step.

Perfect Balance

As a young person, there are so many things you can do.

You can read, write, operate a computer, exercise, dance, converse.

But what of your inner gifts?

Where do they take you?

What is your purpose?

As you listen, within, you begin to find a balance between what you truly love and want to do and your purpose.

You may not be working at a job which takes you toward those things, but as you consider them in your mind, you give them permission to guide you.

More and more, as you move to the balance that you crave, you give yourself strength to leave the pervasive distractions of your current circumstances.

You become able to feel and act on intuition.

You become stronger in your inner gifts and you begin to see their effects on your outward life.

You move into balance between your desires to live and share your gifts and your ability to do so.

Listen inwardly, feel the guidance, trust your intuition and act on it, and you will find your perfect delightful and satisfying balance.

The Seven Billion

What do I know about the seven billion of us?

I know that each one of us is unlimited.

That we each possess an amazing mind.

That we are capable of immense expansion.

In our views.

In our experiences.

In our contacts.

Through imagination, we can explore possibilities.

The ones that are most attractive we can bring into our experience in all the glorious detail we can think of.

We are all composed of dreams, and skills and the ability to communicate in so many different ways.

Learning new languages.

Learning new skills.

Building communities based on long-term values which include everyone.

That is what I know about all seven billion of us.
