If each of us only waits for our opponent to use force in order that we may divert it and throw them to the floor, then which of us would be foolish enough to use force?
Nevertheless – here’s how to use the force of your imagination for good:
- Belief. Saying that something is impossible will put a block on your imagination. As you rise, believe you are on the moon, as you walk to the bathroom believe you can fly, as you look in the mirror believe you are 200 years old, as you shower believe you are living inside a giant tortoise, as you walk downstairs believe the postman will deliver a thousand letters that morning, as you prepare your breakfast, believe a rabbit in a waistcoat will run across your garden – any second now.
- Mistakes. All the stuff that comes out of your head is valuable – even the bits that you might normally call mistakes. I mean, you might think that Einstein calling the seminal paper that gave birth to special relativity ‘Zur Elektrodynamik bewegter Körper’ back in 1905 was a mistake, but the egg-heads of the world still managed to catch on to its importance.
- Dreams. Never cease to dream. Always believe that dreams are embryonic actualities. Chase your dreams up and chide them if they move too slow. Prefer a perfect dream over an imperfect sigh. Dreams are dressed up imagination and imagination is at the heart of all change. Love change and you love the foundation of reality. Reality is the framework within which we dream. Dreams are … dreams are simply sublime, sumptuous and effervescently silly. Embrace your inner silly.
I should stop now. Writing whilst delirious is delicious, yet sleep tempts me away, away.
I shall dream good dreams tonight. What about you?
