Never Did I Imagine…
Imagination. A tool used in multiple tenses. For instance I am experiencing imagination in the past tense as in, “Never did I imagine the negativity and bullying my current vulnerability could evoke”. Never did I imagine that circumstances outside of my control, coupled with my need to directly mitigate them would result in others questioning my integrity, nor the outright impersonal attacks I have received from people I don’t even know.
Imagination + Learning + Creating = EVERYTHING!
Why do I share this now? Because timing is EVERYTHING and this week’s Master Key lesson #20 helps me imagine, creatively, what comes next! Through all of this I am learning and I am creating.
Imagine yourself as a sculptor in your own workshop. Your workshop is your special, peaceful, magical haven. It saturates all 5 senses of anyone who enters with the very essence of everything you are! It is your personal space of solace. I especially sense this in my own workshop!
“You are a visualizing entity. Imagination is your workshop.” -Haanel part 20, sentence 9.
Close That Door… Do It Now!
With this in mind, would you invite someone or something into your workshop that would change that? If a strong wind blew and sand and garbage were flying through the air, would you leave the door open so your environment and your art would be contaminated by debris? How about a stranger who is speaking poorly of you and your work? Is there an open door policy to your workshop for them? Of course not! So, why treat our inner workshop, our imagination, any different?
In the past I have absolutely internalized rude comments, sour sentiments and thoughtless criticism. Surely my number of cycles around the sun have helped me let those things roll off now. But I know what I am currently experiencing and the way in which I am not responding can not be credited only to that.
Sow In That Rich Soil- Only GOOD!
Our imagination is likened to the soil in a garden. The soil doesn’t care what seeds are sown, be it a deadly nightshade or a delicious heirloom tomato. It performs its duty for the seed. Our imagination, our inner workshop likewise does not care which we choose to imagine. We are always manifesting. If I am abundant in grief and trouble, I first look inward for the source.
One may say then that I must have manifested what I am experiencing. Actually I am manifesting my best inner peace and positivity in this storm. My workshop door is closed to these forces to protect the beautiful environment I maintain therein.
“This power of thought, if understood and correctly used, is the greatest labor-saving device ever dreamed of, but if not understood or improperly used, the result will in all probability be disastrous, as we have already seen…” Haanel part 20, sentence 13
Create Only Beautiful Art Of Your Life!
The greatest understanding one can obtain is this: the inner self creates the external circumstances, always! The external does not create the internal. There are moments when protecting your inner imagination workspace from the outer environment is necessary. How do you confirm that you have established this inner peace? It is tangibly evident when peace defies what’s happening all around! I am there, and I hope for the very same for you!
