One of my favorite quotes of all time is Walt Whitman’s, “I am not all contained between my hat and my boots.” That says it all! There is so much more to you than what is visible. In fact, the greater part of you is what is not visible.
Your power lies both in the manifested (that which you do with your hands and body), and in the unmanifested (that which you do with your imagination and affirmations). When you lose sight of that truth – that you live in a physical, as well as invisible world – you lose the greatest gift that The Infinite has bestowed upon you. You lose the ability to make your dreams come true.
When you can see that the physical part of you is not all there is of thee, you no longer are surprised when hard work alone fails to make your dreams come true. Your full power, your awesome ability to manifest your dreams, arises from the unity of the physical and invisible parts of you:
(1) Call upon your imaginator – the invisible part of you that dares to dream those marvelous scenes that inspire you.
(2) Call upon your orator – the silent part of you that fills your self-talk with affirmations that reinforce your imaginings.
(3) Call upon the demonstrator – the physical part of you that has to get out there in the world and act as though your imaginings and affirmations are so.
You did this when you learned to walk and talk, read and write. That’s why you succeeded with t hese four big accomplishments so swiftly. I call it walking into life with your head in heaven and your feet on the ground.
Your head is in heaven when you walk in the world world with lofty visions of wonderful accomplishments.
Your feet are on the ground when you make it a habit to take practical action to make your lofty abstractions real in your life.
As you advance in this process, you come to know yourself as unlimited.
