Ripples #738: Imagine Better.
For our tribe of busy people who share encouragement and gratitude.
15 July 2013
We do not need magic to change the world,
we carry all the power we need inside ourselves already:
we have the power to imagine better.
-J.K. Rowling, shared by Sarah in Fond du Lac, WI
True change doesn’t emerge just from action;
it emerges from genuine understanding.
Action that stems from shallow understanding
turns out to be shallow action.
Action that flows from deeply felt consciousness
is action that can change the world.
-Marianne Williamson, shared by Douglas in Salt Lake City, UT
If you recently received some bad news or things didn’t turn out as you hoped they would, perhaps you can take a few deep breaths and give yourself some time to grieve the loss of how you hoped things would turn out. These frustrating yet inevitable setbacks are part of progress because we often grow stronger from the heaviest loads.
When you are ready to improve your life and/or the world, you’ll need to dust yourself off and get back in the game. Do what you can this week to understand and accept the world as it is, and then…..IMAGINE BETTER!
