Imagination and reality

Imagination is nothing, and it is everything. Imagination abandons reality in order to create an even more meaningful reality.

Imagination has no necessary basis in reason or physical substance. Yet your imagination is an accurate and inspiring picture of exactly who you are.

You negotiate constantly between imagination and reality. Merge them together, respecting the essence of each, and you create value, achievement, fulfilling experience.

It is a risky undertaking, for the harshness of reality can eviscerate imagination, and unchecked imagination can reduce reality to rubble. Yet where there is great risk there is also potential for great rewards.

You are uniquely positioned to envision those rewards and then forge them into existence. Imagine what can be, combined with disciplined observation of what is, and do the work to make it happen.

Reality is overwhelming, and your imagination is limitless. Bring them together to create richness and fulfillment.
