Envisioning the end is enough to put the means in motion. ~Dorothea Brande
Many people ask me, time and again,
“Where did you begin planting, Colette?”
“Did you have a plan?”
The answer is simple, as is much of what I do and how I live my life…no plans, just a vision!
The power of envisioning is just beginning to be understood.
Much has been said about this process and, as yet, we have only a small level of understanding how it works, but the process of manifestation is a powerful one indeed.
Dreaming is the first step to becoming.
To dream of the time ahead is to welcome an inner fold of reality we long for but have not yet realized.
It is an act not just of hope but of inspiration.
~Paul H. Ray and Sherry Ruth Anderson
At a time when hope seems to be marginalized, almost cast aside, as the grim reality of the world today pervades our lives, creating a vision of a better world can be a powerful beginning.
I don’t have a television in my home…that leaves a wonderful void to be filled, and I fill it with imagination and creativity.
Simply unleashing our imaginations can be empowering.
~Paul Rogat Loeb
We really have such little understanding of the power of our imaginations.
Yet most of us are aware of the ways in which a troubled mind can manifest and create chaos and unhappiness!
If one, then the other (opposite), is equally possible!
If we cannot envision the world we would like to live in, we cannot work towards its creation. If we cannot place ourselves in it in our imagination, we will not believe it is possible.
My vision was always one of co-creating with the Goddess, a Garden of Eden.
One of abundance and beauty.
A tribute to Mother Earth.
I veered away from straight lines, squares, harshness that implied dominance.
I wanted to coax Her into life, reassure Her that this would be Her garden.
Everything seems to indicate that we must not be afraid of dreaming the seemingly impossible if we want the seemingly impossible to become a reality.
And so it is…
The Bealtaine Project is a full-time labour of love for Colette O’Neill, aiming to encourage and support those wishing to live more sustainably “with” rather than “on”” Mother Earth.
To this end, Colette writes, photographs, films and podcasts regularly every day in multi media form.
