Stillness still works

I believe there is no difference between thinking and imagination and that they are one. … Anything involving an image in the head is an act of imagination.*
(Mary Ruefle)

I believe profoundly that we don’t grow into creativity; we grow out of it.**
(Ken Robinson)

Be still.

Listen.

Imagine.

Do.

The problem is, imagination is like the air.

It’s so part of life that it’s invisible to us.

This can lead to us thinking others have imagination and we don’t.

Yet this amazing part of human consciousness can be developed by all of us.

Something we desperately need towards making the world a better place for all species and for the planet.

To do, imagine …

To imagine, listen …

To listen …

Be still.
