I am happy to write to You “Thank You”. We are living because of You. We are living happily because of Your Inspiration. Your Inspiration is our dreams and imagination. So we are floating in our spaceship in the Universe between stars and comets. Our navigation is perfect. The next station we are going to jump in is “Summer”. Summer station is wonderful. We are leaving Spring station with our hearts full of gratitude and joy. Thank You for our spaceship named “Our Happy Life”.
“I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge. That myth is more potent than history. That dreams are more powerful than facts. That hope always triumphs over experience. That laughter is the only cure for grief. And I believe that love is stronger than death,” said Robert Fulghum.
I would like to share the poem which touches my soul. The poem was written 200 years before my birth and poet’s vibrations lift up my spirit and inspire my mind now!
“On imagination” (1773)
Imagination! who can sing thy force?
Or who describe the swiftness of thy course?
Soaring through air to find the bright abode,
Th’empyreal palace of the thund’ring God,
We on thy pinions can surpass the wind,
And leave the rolling universe behind,
From star to star the mental optics rove,
Measure the skies, and range the realms above,
There in one view we grasp the mighty whole,
Or with new worlds amaze th’unbounded soul.
We have to keep a clear vision of life due to imagination is developing by its influence. We need always to control brightness and sharpness of our perception. Children know what this process means. Let’s remember how to do it.
“ALL I REALLY NEED TO KNOW about how to live and what to do and how to be I learned in kindergarten. Wisdom was not at the top of the graduate-school mountain, but there in the sandpile at Sunday School. These are the things I learned:
1. Share everything.
2. Play fair.
3. Don’t hit people.
4. Put things back where you found them.
5. CLEAN UP YOUR OWN MESS.
6. Don’t take things that aren’t yours.
7. Say you’re SORRY when you HURT somebody.
8. Wash your hands before you eat.
10. Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you.
11. Live a balanced life – learn some and drink some and draw some and paint some and sing and dance and play and work everyday some.
12. Take a nap every afternoon.
13. When you go out into the world, watch out for traffic, hold hands, and stick together.
14. Be aware of wonder. Remember the little seed in the Stryrofoam cup: The roots go down and the plant goes up and nobody really knows how or why, but we are all like that.
15. Goldfish and hamster and white mice and even the little seed in the Styrofoam cup – they all die. So do we.
16. And then remember the Dick-and-Jane books and the first workd you learned – the biggest word of all – LOOK.”
These wise advices are from the book “All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten: Uncommon Thoughts on Common Things” by Robert Fulghum.
I am going to follow by Robert’s wisdom to make my vision clear. I invite you in my company and together we will enjoy Summer station very soon. We are going to ground on it.
Welcome to our spaceship (the picture below is from kindergarten)!
