When we explore and share our new found experiences we expand the human story.
The story is not His-story and is not told in the academic books, but rather it is our true story.
The story of our experiences and our imagination.
Imagination is creative.
Imagination is part of our consciousness and thus imagination is required.
I am intrigued at the fact that each person will have a different experience to the same identical text. While the text has not changed, the perceptions and experiences of each person reading the same text is not identical.
This is truth.
Recognizing this truth honors and welcomes imagination that is unique to each of us.
Please do not dismiss or marginalize the imagination.
Thoughts such as “It is all in his imagination”, removes an innate element of our being.
Cutting it out of others will cut it out of us, and celebrating it in others will likewise celebrate it in ourselves.
Artistry, Innovation and Imagination are elements of Creation, please embrace this.
The people of the world are seeking remedy and I think we will create the remedy.
We, the people, will embrace our diversity, imagination, artistry and creativity.
Be creative, Be imaginative, and share it.
To write our new story…
I remember when I was first told his-story of the United States of America in the classroom I could not accept it.
His-story made no sense to me that Captain Columbus was lost with his crew and may have had a rougher time if not for the kindness of native people, yet somehow he is accredited with the Founding of that land where the natives lived and had offered kindness.
The classroom event disturbed me so profoundly that I still remember the embarrassment I felt after I innocently and naively asked the teacher how could he be the founder when he was lost and people where already there and helped him?
She chastised me and made me feel stupid in front of the other students with some short terse generalization that without Columbus the United States would not exist and we would not be here.
