Michelangelo once said, “I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.” Michelangelo, of course, was an Italian sculptor, painter, architect and poet of the High Renaissance. He has been described as the greatest artist of his age and even as the greatest artist of all time. His idea of seeing something in his mind is the essence of Imagination, one of the Twelve Powers Charles Fillmore wrote about.
We in New Thought believe that the human mind has a connection to the creative power of the universe that can be used in any way we want it to. So the question is, “What do you want to see in your life?”
Few of us think about sculpting things out of marble, but we often dream about things we’d like to have in our lives. We dream about love and prosperity and beauty and freedom. Sometimes, though, we think about what we lack to achieve these things. So we stop up the flow of blessings and create something less than what we dream of because we don’t understand how powerful we are.
I saw a program about this blind boy who is a track athlete whose specialty is pole vaulting. His dad is a track coach, so he and his son figured out some ways that he can run track and pole vault.
The idea is that they haven’t let his blindness stop them from doing something amazing. Imagine – being blind and being able to pole vault!
There’s a trick to all this: don’t let any thought convince you something can’t be done. You have within YOU the ability to connect to the Creative Energy of the Universe! We humans haven’t begun to really grasp the power we carry around in our heads all the time. If you can think it up, you can make it happen.
