Here’s a question for you. What does God look like?

From a very early age, I had two images of what God looks like in my mind. When I would close my eyes and imagine God I always saw either a dark “angel-shaped” cloud surrounded by incredibly bright light…like the sun shining behind a dark cloud.

The other image, as I would discover much later in life, was an image of the Buddha walking along a path. This was strange because I didn’t even know who the Buddha was when I had this image at three or four years old.

So, I’m curious. Leave your answer as a comment below.

When you close your eyes and imagine God; what does God look like?

Look forward to your interesting answers.

Follow your bliss. Experience your bliss. Become your bliss.

The Visionary – Affirmations and Original Quotes

Today’s Thought:

“Leaders are visionaries with a poorly developed sense of fear, and no concept of the odds against them. They make the impossible happen.”
~ Robert Jarvik

Where would a society be without its visionaries? The French novelist and philosopher Anais Nin once said, “Societies in decline have no use for visionaries.” That is a succinct measure of a society, its mindset, and its direction. How does our society see visionaries? How do YOU see visionaries?

Visionaries are those intrepid souls who risk the wrath of their own tribe to push the tribe forward. They challenge convention and rewrite the possible. The visionary works without a tightrope and is willing to be called heretic, sinner, and outcast all for the hope of bettering the lives of the children and grandchildren of the people casting them into the abyss.

A true visionary is authentically living what Joseph Campbell once called “The Hero’s Journey”. The concepts of the visionary and hero have long intrigued me. Over the past few years, I have tweeted many brief thoughts about these two kinds of people. I decided it was time to compile them. Today’s post focuses on the visionary. I will publish another soon focused on the hero.

My hope is that you will see some of yourself in these descriptions. At the very least, I hope you will no longer count yourself among those who fail to see in the moment the remarkable service these people are doing for us all.

I believe we were all born visionaries and conditioned to be less. May these affirmations and statements reawaken the visionary in you.

  31. The truth already set you free. Now its time for your paradigms to catch up with that fact.

    unquestioned is a house of cards. The visionary questions.
