By the time you read this email, I will be 100% rebooted! Yes, I try to practice what I preach, so, once a year, I “unplug” from phones, computers, deadlines, and DRAMA. As you are undoubtedly aware, cellphones, computers, and overtly stressful environments all equate to negative frequencies.
With that being said, they are all necessary evils in our modern society. So, it is vitally important, whenever possible, to temporarily distance yourself from them and “de-frag,” your life. The “old school” terminology for such an endeavor is a “vacation” or as my European friends say, “holiday.”
The element of choice for my vacations is always water. Water has a relatively low surface tension (softer than hitting the wall 🙂 and is rife with agreeable, extremely friendly natives like fish, turtles, and conch shells! There is a silence that exists beneath the waves that cannot be duplicated on land, and that leads us to this week’s musing, “Take Time to Dream.”
It has been said, “necessity is the mother of invention.” This means that when the need for something becomes imperative, you are forced to find new ways of getting or achieving it. Man’s desire to “take wing” as a bird undoubtedly was the impetus behind the creation of the airplane.
Likewise, the, aqualung (the first underwater breathing apparatus) was obviously created to allow men to breath underwater, as sea creatures do. I will never forget the first time I went diving with scuba gear; it was like being in another world! As man desires to experience something unnatural to our usual existence, amazing inventions follow. Throughout history, big dreams eventually manifest epic realities.
I am one of those who views the term “dreamer” as a compliment … without dreams (vision), the people perish. Make no mistake, Wholetones was a big dream and God made it a fantastic reality. Thankfully, even when I’m on vacation, my dreams continue and creation flows like a river, and I pray that your dreams will also take you places you can only imagine.
I will apologize in advance for the brevity of this email, but a passing gull reminded me that it’s time to find a mooring ball, tie up, and breathe underwater! Remember, take the time to weave a little silence into your life. It’s like making a big bank deposit—the next time you need some peace, you’ll have some in reserve.
