"Look Around Less, Imagine More" - Livin' the Good Life

This is a general piece of advice that is given by Abraham to, and through, Esther Hicks when explaining how to make the law of attraction work to ones advantage. That phrase stopped me in my tracks. REALLY?? It's really ok to do that? I repeated the phrase over and over to myself. The more I said it, the better I felt. Why, that is exactly what I am naturally inclined to do! This is the phrase that first won me over to the law of attraction. Whenever I get mired down in the apparent world situation or the lives of those around me, I just remember that phrase. As a child, my dad often got after me about keeping my feet on the ground and my nose to the grindstone. He told me in recent years that he had feared I would never grow up to be a responsible adult. I may be lacking in some virtues, but responsibility is not one of them. I did live in my imagination most of the time as a child, but I honestly believe that I can attribute that fact to my "happy childhood". The world looked sparkly to me. The colors were extremely vivid. I saw energy. I picked up on delicious vibrations all around me. I spent most of my time outdoors in the year-round, mostly-pleasant California weather because that was where all the energy was. The world I imagined, and the part I played in that world, made me jump out of bed every morning, eager to begin the day's imaginings. And, now, as a full grown adult, I'm being advised to "look around less and imagine more". I must have died and gone to heaven!
