The Power of Imagination.

Fotolia 102342882 S Seeing with our eyes is but the first step towards bringing the power of imagination to bear on the whole picture we might be experiencing. The next step is that, by letting go of the dominance of thinking, our imagination can ‘make’ our version of what the whole picture comprises; then we are ready to ‘breathe in’ the picture through the receptors of Mind, Heart, and Soul. The picture then becomes experience; the experience infuses us, ‘as if by breathing’; and infusion leads to animation which leads, as night follows day, to Inspiration.

The Unpredictability of Chance

Fotolia 119534772 XS   As humans with Receptors of Mind, Heart and Soul, we are bound up in the unpredictability of chance. This means that we actually can’t avoid being inspired, nor can we avoid inspiring others. We all dream our dreams; we all reach out to, and love, each other; we can, if we are brave, be true to our real selves. We are all moved by great music, by drama on stage and off it, and by the unselfishness of ordinary people. And ordinary people do the same for us: we have each given and received Inspiration, for it is part of being human. However, by developing our capacity to receive and give it consciously, and with courage, will and awareness, we can live more fully and help each other to do the same.  This, hopefully, will ‘lead’ us to become less ordinary and more human. We have a pathway to...

The dominant mode of our existence...

Fotolia 136579599 S The dominant mode of our existence has become Transaction. Most of us have chosen, consciously or not, to be bought and sold. Our living standards are sacrosanct, our sense of entitlement to increasing wealth seems embedded in our approach to life, and we assume, wrongly, that the current model of corporate capitalism will last for ever. We are, most of us, members of the bourgeoisie, and as such complicit in the economic systems and ills that imprison us. This is out of step with Nature as a system, of which we are a part. We are out of step with ourselves. Yet, we are born to be inspired and to inspire. Inspiration is not the sole province of great public figures. Nelson Mandela and Mother Teresa believed themselves called to enormous tasks and great destinies; they gave their lives in service to them, were renowned for doing so, and their...

The Receiving and Transmitting of Inspiration

Fotolia 84095037 S   The receiving and transmitting of Inspiration is like breathing in and breathing out. Only like it, though. What I receive, or breathe in, is not just air. It is my version, or my picture, of what I experience with my five senses. It can only be my version, because ‘my’ experience is shaped by who I ‘am’. To explain what I mean, I would ask you to think of a moment when you have been with a friend to the same place at the same time, let’s say a beach on a summer’s evening. You both see the waves moving in the light of the setting sun; you both feel the warm wind on your skin; you both move your toes in the wet sand. You both smell the seaweed on the rocks, hear the sucking of the water as it moves out of the pools, and taste the...

Inspiration lies at the core of what most of us want...

Fotolia 147547875 S “Inspiration lies at the core of what most of us want to become as people; and the lack of thoughtful, felt, and trusted Inspiration is behind many of the problems we face today. I believe Inspiration can lead us to some of the answers to the questions we grapple with, and that this ‘leading’ can help each of us ‘lead’ our own lives more fully and to greater effect. Inspiration can give us the collective intelligence we need to counteract the rise of destructive forces. Indeed, it represents a ‘different kind of force’  -  one that can ‘animate the structures that might appear after the old ones crumble." I look forward to sharing more thoughts on Inspiration, including what it really is and how to do it. Martin Best, The Corporate Theatre.
