“Do You Know What You Are?”


“Do you know what you are?
You are a manuscript of a divine letter.
You are a mirror reflecting a noble face. 
This universe is not outside of you. 
Look inside yourself;
everything that you want, 
you are already that.”    (Rumi, Hush, Don’t Say Anything to God: Passionate Poems of Rumi)



“You are one thing only.  You are a Divine Being.  An all-powerful Creator.  You are a Deity in jeans and a t-shirt, and within you dwells the infinite wisdom of the ages and the sacred creative force of All that is, will be and ever was.”    (Anthony St. Maarten, Divine Living: The Essential Guide to Your Destiny)



“As you think, so shall you become.”    (Bruce Lee)
“As you think, so shall you be.”    (Wayne Dyer)



“The mind is everything.  What you think, you become.  What you feel, you attract. What you imagine, you create.”    (Buddha)



“Imagine, and it shall be.
There are no limits.⁠⁠⁠⁠”     (Evelyn Skye, The Crown’s Game)



“If you believe you can, you might.  If you know you can, you will.”    (Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free)



“A human being always acts and feels and performs in accordance with what he imagines to be true about himself and his environment …  For imagination sets the goal ‘picture’ which our automatic mechanism works on.  We act, or fail to act, not because of ‘will,’ as is so commonly believed, but because of imagination.”    (Maxwell Maltz, The New Psycho-Cybernetics)



“I have a habit of letting my imagination run away from me.  It always comes back though . . . drenched with possibilities.”    (Valaida Fullwood)



“The unreal is more powerful than the real.  Because nothing is as perfect as you can imagine it.  Because its only intangible ideas, concepts, beliefs, fantasies that last.  Stone crumbles.  Wood rots.  People, well, they die.
But things as fragile as a thought, a dream, a legend, they can go on and on.  If you can change the way people think.  The way they see themselves.  The way they see the world.  You can change the way people live their lives.  That’s the only lasting thing you can create.”    (Chuck Palahniuk, Choke)



“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.  Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.”     (Roald Dahl)
