"I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination.
Imagination is more important than knowledge.
Knowledge is limited.
Imagination encircles the world."
"Logic will get you from A to Z;
imagination will get you everywhere."
It seems as though every time I go into the silence to explore my own imagination, this church is at the center of my thoughts. Imagination - - image. What is the image held in my head?
I see love energy. In every chair, the mere act of sitting produces a vibration wherein the sitter feels love. I see doors of pure love the energy of which is so charged that touching the handle or push plate sends a pulse of love into the hand and entire body. I see love particles that, though invisible to the naked eye, are breathed in, assuring the breather they are loved, and exhaled with a more dramatic love energy for others to breathe in and multiply the process.
I see healing. The eye does not see when the bone of a broken arm has grown back together and been restored to its proper function. The eye does not see when the lung filled with pneumonia is cleared, and healthy breathing resumes. Yet this healing occurs. I visualize healing. It is a God-Spirit that permeates the receptive mind, healing everything within that is less than perfect. As the God Spirit comes in, She touches the anger, the resentment, the hurt, the hate, and bonds herself to the cells holding these cancers of self-destruction. The God-Spirit being only complete, perfect, and true love rebirths herself in those cells, setting free – removing the sickness and giving complete life, new life to every cell, which in turn bring a sensation of pure joy and freedom, that had been missing for a long time.
I see growth. Does one notice when the actual occurrence of a blade of grass lengthens? Does one behold the foot of a child enlarge as it moves from one shoe size to the next larger? Yet it is a reality. I see the growth of your consciousness as if reading the rising temperature on a digital thermometer. You are realizing to greater and greater degrees your Godness. The limits you have imposed on yourself are lifted. All mistaken views that you are any less than or greater than anyone else fade away. In your escalating awareness of your Godness, love goes forth from you as a radiant warm light, changing others by your mere presence. I see the growth in you as complete, non-judgment gives way to complete acceptance of yourself and others as you behold the Christ in yourself and in everyone. In this growth, I see the outgrown, tattered clothes of bigotry, phobia, prejudice, and self-righteousness removed and put in the trash where they belong; for now, you are God adorning the holy, majestic robes of unending love, eternal kindness, and abundant gentleness. I see your growth as you ponder the peace of God and recognize that peace is you.
I behold glory coming forth, and not coming down from the sky, but emanating from within you. I behold your glory, the exact glory of the God you are.
