It is not brain nor intellect that sets us apart from our animal kin. It is our ability to innovate. We are empowered with one extraordinary, collective gift: Imagination.
To quote Albert Einstein: “Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.”
As consciousness evolves, humans can mindfully determine a future charged with magic and supernatural creative wonder far more dynamic than all of our known and forgotten past. Choosing to be a species worthy of being an honored and revered representative to speak for those whom and that which we have guardianship over on this pale blue dot carries a great responsibility and that is to hold all such forward material and spiritual endeavors in such a way as to maintain conscious awareness and kind consideration of the greater good.
The key is to boldly express that which ignites one's heart... The result is the integration of a brilliant chord of engagement within the illuminated cosmic consciousness. We are the world - as the bud of the rose - unfolding in wonderment to knowing beyond being, our divine right simply to expand love and express light.
Wake up ... and know wonder.
