IT'S SUPERCALIFRAGILISTICEXPIALIDOCIOUS!

Last Sunday afternoon after the METRON Community meeting/event, we grabbed a quick bite of lunch, and then went to pick up my granddaughters, Sofia (7) and Olivia (4) to take them see 'Mary Poppins' at the Fox Theatre...it was a part of their annual Coca Cola Summer Film Festival which shows vintage and classic movies, and was the 50th Anniversary "Sing-along" edition of the famous Disney flick...we all enjoyed it very much, especially after having seen 'Saving Mr. Banks' recently, which gives the back story to the making of the award-winning (13 Oscar noms, 5 wins), iconic film...

I hadn't seen MP in several years, and there were a few things in it that I had either forgotten about, or sort of really "saw" for the first time...

First, I was impressed by the "intention" that little Jane and Michael write down in the beginning of the film and send out to the Universe, a poem that they sing which describes the type of nanny that they want...and then I was struck by the "detachment" that they exhibited when they had to release it after Mr. Banks tears it up and throws it into the fireplace...then when Mary Poppins is "attracted" to them from out of the blue, she is holding the taped-together pieces of paper, and reading the intention back to them...very symbolic 'Law of Attraction' kind of stuff...

Another part that stood out to me was when they visited eccentric, old Uncle Albert, played by the inimitable Ed Wynn, in what was probably his best-remembered film appearance...this segment involved the sweet old man floating around just beneath the ceiling in uncontrollable mirth, singing "I Love to Laugh" and was one of the film's highlights...when the rest of them starting laughing along with him, they all defied gravity and started floating, as well...they could only come down when they thought of something sad...also a very symbolic message about the cosmically attractive Power of Joy, and how it lifts you up to a higher perspective (consciousness)...

 For more about that, see my post entitled 'Happiness is the Truth"...

But the part that presented the most powerful picture-lesson to me was when they all jumped into one of Bert's (Dick Van Dyke) sidewalk chalk drawings...the four characters literally make a quantum leap into the "reality" that he had created there, and I found that to be the most visually compelling image in the whole film...it stood out to me mainly because I'm so interested right now in knowing how to teach people that they create their own reality...I'm fascinated by the subject...

There's no doubt about it...our thoughts and feelings change the world around us, whether we’re aware of it or not...we're constantly creating our reality with our words and intentions, and especially with our imaginations, and then "leaping" into what we have created...we are the most trusted prophets in our own lives...

Einstein said, “Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.”

He also said, "Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life's coming attractions."

Again I say, the ultimate act of creativity occurred when the Creator created creators (us!)...and the ultimate act sovereignty was when the Sovereign of the Universe created after His own kind, and made Sovereign Beings in His awesome image!

As it has been said, who you are is God's gift to you, and who become is your gift to God!

You can become something greater...a great version of who you are, living out a better reality...

Yes, yes, yes you can!

You can imagine a life that is "practically perfect in every way"!

Create, creator!

    Bish, do you think that today's youth are so angry and disillusioned because they don't understand or know how to dream, to imagine? They are not encouraged to dream or use their imaginations. Do you think that the answer could be as simple as teaching them to dream or imagine? Quantum Physics in its most basic form?

  8. I don't know that the solution to that problem is just one thing, but for sure the better translation of "Where there is no vision, the people perish" is rendered, "Where there is no prophetic revelation, the people cast off restraint"...people with dreams are more likely to be disciplined, and I think that any way we can keep the dream potential alive in young people is a positive thing, including truths from QP, etc...
