From How to Have Better Sex, Lose Weight, Make Millions, and Eat Chocolate.com:
Ponder a moment about all the world’s civilizations. Without knowing about each other, in different ways, societies came to the same conclusion—there is a creator, a higher spiritual power. Ancients knew how to meditate and turn their desires into prayers and into objects. They created beautiful pottery out of sand that lasts for thousands of years. All the material exists in the universe to create everything you see manmade. Man has not learned how to create the sand, the Earth, or mankind. Man creates objects from existing resources. We can learn to use prayers, meditation, and thoughts to make things we desire to create a life of our dreams. –Jeanette Joy Fisher

Don’t you love taking a blank slate and creating something glorious? I’m so grateful for my home, which came with plain dirt surrounding the house. This wall was built from my imagination using God’s materials.

  1. Absolutely stunning! You have the gift to create from a blank canvas! I love to create art using my hands that brings life to reed though weaving baskets. I get the vision and then ‘go’. I sometimes forget to eat, drink or take care of other things because the mind is racing while moving weavers through staves. The basket takes on a life of its own and when I am done I breathe while reflecting to see if I’ve captured ever detail that I saw when I first began. Such a wonderful feeling to take a blank slate and bring it to life. The best part of it all is the escape, the way to shut the brain off from the crazy world we live in. That is so important… it is the meditation moment to recharge 🙂
