Imagining Pleasure That Surpasses

Imagination is such an amazing thing. Just look at the world around you and marvel at how many things are the result of an imagination. When we are imagining things, we are truly being Godlike … the ultimate Creator. We can create such beautiful pleasurable worlds to live in, that sometimes we just don’t want to leave them!
We start to crave and cling to our imaginations. We also begin avoiding anything that will take away from our experience of those imaginations. Then, ultimately, when what we have imagined crumbles, or is taken from us, we shut ourselves down and go into a soulful hibernation.
So what is the answer?? We need to be nurturing of our imaginations, in order to create the things that we are destined to create in this lifetime … but how do we avoid getting crushed on that deep soulful level?
In my post for meditation today, “Variegated Mindfield“, Vincent van Gogh gives the instruction to not become a slave to your model. I began thinking about all of the various ways I have been enslaved to my dreams and imaginations … I admit, I found it puzzling to conceive of how not to be enslaved without constant work and attentive consideration to each thought.
Then it dawned on me, perhaps I was simply imagining the wrong things. If one imagines something that they cannot achieve or that is impossible … then invariably their spirit will get crushed.
I thought of God. It is my belief that God is capable of anything. So therefore it made sense to plug my imagination into my own intimate relationship with God … in doing so I can simply let go and allow God to manifest what I had imagined. I’m not talking about some get rich quick scheme though … God is not going to just give us whatever we want because, like little children, what we want is usually not good for us.
What God will give us in plenty is love and joy and happiness and peace and SO much more. I began imagining on that level. I imagined not ever having to fight to stay connected to God. I imagined other people’s judgments of me having no effect, because I am just that rooted in God love. I imagined being as gleefully happy as a little child, without concern for what tomorrow may bring … or even the next hour. I imagined becoming so completely one with God that the pleasure of that surpasses any orgasm, fantasy, experience, or high.
That sounds like a pretty awesome world to me!! All we have to do is keep imagining it and then allowing God to create it. We never become enslaved to our model … because we can just let go … no clinging, avoidance, or rejection required.

Religion4All is an idea: that every human being (no matter their race, religion, sexuality, social status, lifestyle, or any other possible factor) is LOVED by God; just … as … they are.

We all are loved by God, and NO religion or person has a monopoly on it. Every single person on this planet is loved equally by God … SO many are cut off from God because they are told they don’t belong. God loves everyone … we ALL are beautiful creations … we don’t need to cringe when we hear the words “God”, or “religion”, or their judgments … God LOVES us all!

There is no requirement to change in order to be LOVED by God, or to LOVE God. God is LOVE, and LOVE is God … period. There is no one who God loves more than anyone else … there are only those who choose to LOVE more … to love God more, and consequently then to love each other more. In doing so, we grow closer to God … and know God.

By opening our hearts, and minds to God (free of boundaries like religion, or social trends); by LOVING God … we are exactly where we are meant to be. If we maintain that openness, never allowing any person or event to make us close our hearts, we will be guided by God to be who we are meant to be.

In that space of openness we can then live a life of LOVE, and be guided to where we are meant to be … forever in LOVE.
