Today's selection is from Jean Houston's fabulous book:
'A Passion for the Possible:
A Guide to Realizing Your True Potential'.
"As you walk along you discover that you have become more supple. You move with fluidity and grace, each muscle and joint and cell having remembered its optimal form. You are delighted to be in your body.
You are drawn to all that lies before you--flocks of gorgeous orange and black monarch butterflies and ageless, elegantly draped willow trees, an ancient boulder, a babbling brook, an arbor of lush purple grapes. All around you is a light that feels loving, and that sensation of love is reflected in everything you experience--- a misty dawn, the blackness of seeds in the flesh of a watermelon, the salt smell of a sea breeze."
Jean Houston's writing leads you into forays of imaginative visualizations
focusing on the Sensory, the Psychological, the Mythic Journey and the Spiritual Quest.
One of the world's greatest teachers, she conducts Mystery Schools
all over the world. She has worked with some of the greatest minds of our time. And she knows the power of our own minds, working to help each of us explore and utilize its strengths.
"I once made a study of fifty-five of the most creative people in America, innovators like Margeret Mead, Joseph Campbell, Linus Pauling, Jonas Salk, and Buckminster Fuller. Each had sustained a high level of inquiry and discovery in her or his field over many years. Though very different in personality and interests, these creative geniuses, I found, had one important thing in common. They were each familiar with their interior world and believed that its ideas and images could spark their projects. Each had become an archaeologist of the mind,
a spelunker in the cave of inner inspiration."
Go spelunking with Jean. You won't regret it!
