Envisioning The Vision Board

The blue poster board had a prominent position on my floor for a number of weeks. It was the space being made for an inspiration ~ a vision board. Inspired by the Buddha's words, "All that we are is the result of what we have thought," and the book "The Vision Board, The Secret To An Extraordinary Life", I began collecting ideas and images. The vision statement In Joy Now came from an Eckhart Tolle talk. Some of the photos are my own, the eye collage is a favourite created by Greg, other images were sourced from the wonderful world of google images. Looking at the board, images glued on, words added with markers and paints, I realize that the personal vision includes a cosmic vision. The little self wants to live in a world where we all live in accordance with the absolute truths. Love. Peace. Compassion. Silence. Freedom. Balance. The footsteps on this path are green in honour of the care and kindness needed to sustain our lives on this beautiful blue green planet. Gazing at The Vision Board fills my heart with joy and a sense of playful creation.
