Inspire, “to be the cause of, to bring about”, to be inspired, to bring about something new, a new idea, a new thought, a new action or a new self. Napolean Hill wrote, “whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.”
Inspire, “to breathe in, to take in a new air”. When we draw in a deep breath of air we become filled with something new and fresh. For many people the idea of taking in a deep breathe of clean fresh air only happens if they have to move more quickly than normal. To breathe in means to take action, to take responsibility and to live fully. It means feeling the air rush through the body with some mad purity. The air we breathe in wants to inspire not only the blood cells but our very thoughts.
Perhaps if we were inspired we would move out of a job that no longer satisfies. With a bit of inspiration we could create something new, something wonderful, or something majestic. With a powerful inspirational moment we might make a change in our life that would produce meaning and significance.
What does it take to inspire you? A bolt of lightning?
“It is only when we silent the blaring sounds of our daily existence that we can finally hear the whispers of truth that life reveals to us, as it stands knocking on the doorsteps of our hearts. ” K.T. Jong
Or could it be the rhythmic sounds of a waterfall cascading through your thoughts.
What inspires you?
Take time out right now, take in a deep breath and slowly exhale. Breathe in again and this time close your eyes and let your mind just go quiet, what do you see, what do you hear, what inspirational thought did you hold in your hand?
Maybe it takes a different perspective … take a look. Inspired?
Take a moment and see what your mind can conceive and believe.
