A New Season of Leadership Is Upon Us… Who and What Will You Choose…


key-to-new-season

A new season of leadership is upon us… Who and what will you choose…

If your actions inspire others to dream more,

learn more, do more & become more, YOU ARE A LEADER.

~ John Quincy Adams

Only a humanity raised to the art of dreaming, of luxury,

of beauty, of truth, only a dreaming humanity, an intuitive humanity

will be able to project a more equal world, a richer economy, a brighter future.

~ Elio D’ Anna

It was said, by a man who goes by the name of John Wooden, that, “The most powerful leadership tool you have is your own personal example.” I happen to align with this thought… I also happen to align with the idea that, dreaming is what inspires and creates our world… As I think of this, I have to ask myself the question, ‘…then how will I dream…’ The process of dreaming requires the use of our imaginations… We use our imaginations within every moment of each day and get to see the ways in which we actually see ourselves, others and the world, and at times, the ways in which others see themselves, others and our world… So does dreaming take place only when we are fully at rest, or are we perpetually dreaming… Does dreaming take place only while our eyes are closed, or can we dream too, during our waking hours, as we’re making use of our creative imaginations… Consider what it really means to dream… How much power does a dream have…

“Blessed are they who see beautiful things in humble places

where other people see nothing.”

~ Camille Pissarro

Your dream(s) has as much power as you decide to give it… So what will you dream and how much power will you give your dream(s)… Do we have the ability to influence our dreams even while asleep… We are just as capable of working with our dreams in sleep as we are capable while awake… So why not treat your dreams as though they are simply beautiful artworks… Generally, when we are working on a creative project, a book, painting, drawing, song, dance performance, flower display, etc., we review it to determine if it is what we have envisioned, or would accept as a work in progress or finished work… If it is not quite what we would like it to be, we make the necessary additions, subtractions or modifications… Most artists, which I believe we all are, take the time to adjust their work(s), until they have found it to be of the quality suitable for its greater journey… I think, we should treat our dreams, both during sleep and during our waking hours the same… We should study them more thoroughly, critique them and decide whether they are worthy of our signatures… After all, our dreams are just as much the art of our own imaginations as any other work we deem to be art…

“Aerodynamically the bumblebee shouldn’t be able to fly,

but the bumblebee doesn’t know that so it goes on flying anyway.”

~ Mary Kay Ash

More comprehensively speaking, we are here to live a life that is worthy of our signatures… We, ourselves, are here to be not only God’s (Highest Presence’s) greatest and highest work, but the greatest and highest work of our own making… We are born with the tools of mind and imagination, heart and emotions, body and feelings… We are spirit and soul beings who are glorious and unlimited… Nowhere in the original blueprint of our lives is there or will there ever be lifelessness, disharmony, limitation or shortage… The Universe, our macro world, will never reflect such… Our earthly lives, our micro world(s), are the same—vibrant, harmonious, containing unlimited (re)sources and abundant… The macro dream was made by God (Highest Presence) to show us the way of a peaceful, magical and brilliant existence… The micro dream is a mere template, too, designed by God (Highest Presence)… available to us for the purpose of experimenting with our own lives… We are given the freedom to build upon this template, and to complete it with what we choose, such as love and play… When we look upon our own experiment(s), our own dream(s), our own artistic creation(s), may they be for us real experiences bringing forth the greatest joys our sound imaginations have fathomed… the highest life our grace-filled insights have allowed… the healthiest realities our pure hearts have given breath to… We are made with both spiritual and physical wills to exist and co-exist as temples of a holy life… We exist and live in both the subtle and physical world(s)… We are here to know and to long frolic in our heaven on earth… We have been given everything we could possibly need and more, not to survive, but to fully live, magnificently… So why choose an existence that does not further our greatest, highest and healthiest intentions, good, realities and quality of life…

God performs wonders that cannot be fathomed,

miracles that cannot be counted.

~ Job 5:9

Albeit, our lives are immeasurable and our world(s) are abundant, we have yet to experience all of God’s gifts meant for our lives, simply because they are countless…  It is because of this knowing, I choose to remain a clean vessel, open, receptive, faithful and allowing of the myriad blessings continually flowing into my life… I choose to remain curious like a child, urging both God (Highest Presence) and the Universe to bestow upon me what will always bring forth my smile… I choose to tickle the toes of eternal wisdom in order that its laugh decorate my own emotions with pure happiness… I choose to align myself with those who live by love alone, and yet have gained the understanding of fear, so that it no longer has any use… I choose to gleefully move and skip and dance through life… because life for me is indeed a playground… I choose to pick of the fruits and herbs of our natural world and make them dishes and fountains of nourishment … Only God (Source) reveals to us their truth, simply by letting us witness the act(s) of resonance and synergy… I choose to commune with the animal world and know their primal ways, for these ways are in-tune with the ways of primitive Nature, harmonious and synchronistic (all working together for the greatest, highest and healthiest good)… I choose a world that magnifies for us the ways of innate and intuitive life, eternal youthfulness, pristine love, holistic health, organic beauty, serendipitous occurrences, synchronistic happenings, euphoric existences, pleasant surprises, effortless movement, easy growth, uninhibited flow, unlimited spiritual, material and financial blessings and more and more good…

“If one is lucky, a solitary fantasy can totally

transform one million realities.”

~ Maya Angelou

So who and what will I choose… to represent a potential and/or purposeful dream for my life, to display for me the way(s) of harmonious love, to encourage me to think beyond the sky, for the sky is not our limit, to foster a language that is universal and understood by all, simply because the heart’s music is our common language, to act according to the Spiritual Law and Natural Order of Life, and therefore, justice does not become a system, but is a balanced and organic way of being with ourselves, with others and in the world… Who and what will I choose… to bring forth and to sustain creations that add more health and well-being to our lives… to stand up not for a right or a wrong, but to show us how already firm is the world’s foundation, in order that we may build on it… solid and strong lives, relationships and homes… and carry and bring forth too, heavenly dreams…  Who and what will I choose… I choose myself… I choose myself to dream a dream that gives me life… but not just any life… a life that is worthy of my most sublime and extraordinary existence… a life that intuitively moves me toward who and what serves my greatest, highest and healthiest intentions, good, realities and quality of life… Perhaps, a life I have yet to dream… So I remain open, receptive, faithful and allowing, and too, graceful, intuitive and led by pure and unconditional love…  I am worthy…

~ Katherine Miracle

“The task of leadership is not to put greatness into humanity,

but to elicit it, for greatness is already there.”

~ John Buchan

 

‘When you cease to allow your mind and imagination, your heart and emotions

and your body and feelings to foster and feed the illusions of sickness, dis-ease,

death, opposition, lack and poverty… and you begin to make use of your internal

will to dream and to bring forth the beautiful, the magnificent, the magical and

prosperous life, God (Highest Presence), the Universe and World will show you

how well you have dreamed and how gloriously you are living…

We dream only beautiful dreams… You… Me… Us… We have made our world

our heaven on earth because we first have dreamed it…’

~ Dana Rondel

“It’s your place in the world; it’s your life. Go on and do

all you can with it, and make it the life you want to live.”

~ Mae Jemison

“…and forget not that the earth delights to feel your

bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.”

~ Kahlil Gibran

We have the capacity and potential to always be a blessing in our own lives, in the lives of others and in this magical and magnificent world of ours…
