We act not from will, but from imagination
The year 2021 starts with the quotation “we act not from will, but from imagination.” The thought charms me. For three years, I diddled with that idea sporadically, yet gave it no credence. After all, my parents told me, my teachers told me, and public voices (AKA “they) told me that life requires willpower. Imagination is for feckless dreamers and fools, not a life tool for adults.
Courtesy of Covid-19, I’ve had the time for a grazing through lots and lots of books. One afternoon I drifted upon a book of Nevil Goddard lectures. Because I inherited an interest in metaphysics from my father, I read more and more of his works. I have become so intrigued that I am committing myself to daily practice of his principles throughout 2021. This blog is a personal journal written for myself and to myself as an informal documentation of this experiment. I’ve released myself from any obligation to explain or clarify anything that I publish. I feel free to write as I choose, disregarding any rules I would ordinarily follow were I writing for others.
