I saw this blue “pond” in the sky the other day.
I wasn’t sure if anyone else would see it.
When I posted it on Instagram, it became my most popular photo yet.
When I look at it now, I still see a magical pond in the sky.
Yet, when I first took the photo, I didn’t think the photo would capture what I saw, and when I posted it I didn’t think anyone else would see it.
This is a good metaphor for life. I get an idea, something comes to me. I expect no one will understand what I mean or see my vision the way I do. Then I take a risk and 9 times out of 10, people can feel or see or hear what I mean. Not everyone, not every time, yet, imagine how much beauty we miss when we dismiss our visions/imaginings/voices as crazy or “too out there” for anyone to get.
Even those who share a lot of the beauty and vision they see, dismiss or don’t share a lot more of it than they do.
There are beautiful mysteries around us all the time.
Imagine we were all constantly sharing them.
Imagine the magic we’d be living in.
Imagine a blue pond in the sky.
