To bring about a world of unity, a planetary community, we must begin to imagine it, speak it, and believe it into existence. To end war, we must begin to say war is obsolete and it is time to ban in it, just as we banned slavery, child labor, witch burning. To protect the planet or the poor, we must begin to say – convincingly and collectively – that corporations can profit as they wish, but not at the expense of the environment, of human rights, and of the communities in which they do business. This is not revolution against something, it is evolution toward something…toward a better quality of life for the whole human family.
Blessed are those who have not seen but have believed.
Do you believe in the power of imagination? Can you imagine what a planetary community of unity would look like? Try it.
I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works.
Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.
Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine and at last you create what you will.
George Bernard Shaw
Everything you can imagine is real.
The man who has no imagination has no wings.
Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were. But without it we go nowhere.
A rock pile ceases to be a rock pile the moment a single man contemplates it, bearing within him the image of a cathedral.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
You can’t do it unless you can imagine it.
What is now proved was once only imagined.
Visualize this thing that you want, see it, feel it, believe in it. Make your mental blue print, and begin to build.
To bring anything into your life, imagine that it’s already there.
When you can imagine you begin to create and when you begin to create you realize that you can create a world that you prefer to live in, rather than a world that you’re suffering in.
We imagine that we want to escape our selfish and commonplace existence, but we cling desperately to our chains.
