im·ag·i·na·tion

noun

1.

the faculty of imagining, or of forming mental images or concepts of what is not actually present to the senses.
2.

the action or process of forming such images or concepts.
3.

the faculty of producing ideal creations consistent with reality, as in literature, as distinct from the power of creating illustrative or decorative imagery.
4.
the product of imagining; a conception or mental creation, often a baseless or fanciful one.
5.
ability to face and resolve difficulties; resourcefulness: a job that requires imagination.
 
Seems that at least a part of imagining is being able to bring whatever has come to mind, the imagined element, to the forefront of the senses.  I believe that simply living in imagination without any embodiment of the imagined would be too sterile and mind centered for me. I must allow my imagination to come to fruition and become reality. Not all of the time but at least some of the time.
 
I am glad that I am able allow my imagination to come to life.

Laughing

Laughing

~ Do it yourself

Learn the laughing meditation in three easy steps.

 

Limber: Stretch your muscles as you exhale, relax briefly as you inhale, then stretch again and exhale. Repeat this a couple of times as you reach over your head. For the last-minute, push the fingers of one hand back with the other hand while you stretch your facial muscles by making funny faces and grimaces—without laughing.

 

Laugh: Smile, and slowly, without forcing yourself, laugh with a relaxed throat. Laugh softly at first, then louder until you’re bellowing heartily from your belly. Don’t force anything. Allow it to happen. In the final minute, close your eyes and continue to laugh.

 

Release: With your eyes closed, suddenly stop laughing and breathe without making a sound. Each time you notice you’re thinking of something, let the thought go and focus your attention on your body. Whatever you feel, notice it and allow it.

Max Christern, editor of Ode’s Dutch edition, never needed a laughing meditation to find his inner giggler.

From: http://www.odemagazine.com/doc/65/laughter-meditation/all

 

Laughing can help… and besides I might be able to take myself less seriously if I laughed from my belly many times per day.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Today I will laugh and smile.
