Dreaming Your Vision with Imagination

“Vision gets the dreams started. Dreaming employs your God-given imagination to reinforce the vision.

of a champion, a winner, a person of high character who is
consistently at the top of whatever game he or she is in.”

Playing Our Parts

“You can play any part –

But if you don’t know this,
and are not willing to
give up your present state,
you will remain there,
looking at your desire
and not from it.
You can become
what you would like to be
in the twinkle of an eye
by the simple act of assumption.”
~ Neville Goddard

Thoughts Boomerang!

 

“You never can tell when you send a word,
Like an arrow shot from a bow
By an archer blind, be it cruel or kind,
Just where it may chance to go.
It may pierce the breast of your dearest friend.
Tipped with its poison or balm,
To a stranger’s heart in life’s great mart,
It may carry its pain or its calm.

You never can tell when you do an act
Just what the result will be;
But with every deed you are sowing a seed,
Though the harvest you may not see.
Each kindly act is an acorn dropped
In God’s productive soil
You may not know, but the tree shall grow,
With shelter for those who toil.

You never can tell what your thoughts will do,
In bringing you hate or love;
For thoughts are things, and their airy wings
Are swifter than carrier doves.
They follow the law of the universe—
Each thing must create its kind,
And they speed o’er the track to bring you back
Whatever went out from your mind.”

~ Ella Wheeler Wilcox,
Author & Poet

“If you are a soldier, you will become a general,
if you are a monk, you will become the Pope.”
