(Paraphrasing C. S. Lewis for a look at our perceptions and how they create The Age Of “I” or The Age of “We.”)
After a life marked by ups and downs, John was met by St. Peter at the Pearly Gates.
St. Peter said, “John, although you’ve succumbed more frequently than expected, overall, your actions have made us proud.”
“Therefore, it’s your choice:
This is the door to Heaven.
That one is to Hell.
Which is for you?”
Before choosing, John asked and St. Peter agreed that he could take a quick peek at both.
Feeling the cold heaviness of despair, John opened Hell’s door. Although he saw an abundant banquet table, overflowing with every imaginable and desirable food, there was misery and suffering everywhere. Despite the abundance, the people couldn’t partake because the knives, forks, and spoons were 3-feet long. John quickly closed the door.
Sensing the warmth of loving acceptance, John opened Heaven’s door to see people joyfully celebrating. He saw a similar banquet table with every imaginable and desirable food, even the same silverware. But the people were joyfully celebrating as they fed each other.
John, naturally entered Heaven’s door.
More importantly, which perception do we choose?
“If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear to man as it is, Infinite. For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things thro’ narrow chinks of his cavern.” William Blake
The Buddha said, “Your work is to discover your world and then with all your heart, give yourself to it.”

Is Life’s Greatest Adventure!
“The most important decision we make is whether we believe we live in a friendly or hostile Universe.” Albert Einstein
“Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t–you’re right.” Henry Ford
What’s our insight?
Whether we believe we live in a
Joyful, loving Universe,
Or a hostile Universe,
Our power to choose is our greatest power; our choices determine what we give to the world and how we receive its gifts to us!
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin said, “We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.” As such, we are a facet of The One, The Creative Presence that expresses as all. Our body is not us; it is our vehicle, our avatar for our experiences. Our journey may be through a door to survival skills or a door to Life’s Greatest Adventure – it’s our choice!
We have 3 Powers: Financial, Political, and Personal. Financial and Political can be taken away from us by others, and we may be powerless to stop it. But, our Personal power is unalienable. No one can take it from us. The catch is that it’s like a muscle ¬– we must develop and consistently use it or it atrophies while waiting to be developed.
If there’s only one message to take from this site, make it this: We are spiritual beings having an earthly experience. We are treasured like a new-born baby, immersed in a web of connections of non-judgment, acceptance, encouragement, joy and love. Or not! Which do you choose?
We’re Outfitting Avatars
For Life’s Greatest Adventure!
Here is an overview of what we can expect to glean from The Magic of Imagination!
This site’s purpose is guiding me to live the abundant life I’ve dreamed of: Sharing experiences, insights, and the tools to aid and enjoy my journey to the New Story to the fullest extent possible.
A. Our Agenda – Developing our Personal Power!
It’s not that we can’t make it through the Actualization process without first developing a mature self-awareness, it’s just that we’ll enjoy the process and have a smoother ride, a more satisfying journey, if first we become the change we want to see.
- Authentic Self-Awareness. Knowing, accepting, trusting, and loving myself empowers and facilitates me in developing self-confidence, direction, assertiveness, non-judgment, and the personal skills needed in finding my true purpose for being here and to live immersed in love and joy.
- Easing into Quantum. Getting up to speed and becoming comfortable with what science has learned and confirmed – reality is perception. (Discovering, exploring and becoming comfortable with quantum physics.)
- Quantum Living. Developing our comfort level with quantum living, focusing on our life’s purpose while trusting the Universe to cover our needs.
B. The Process
Using our Guide skills, processes, and experiences as a foundation, we will blog, create and utilize available online courses, seminars, programs, and profiles as needed to build bridges and develop the skills participants want. Participants freely pick and choose which tools are used and when.
Time and feeling rushed is only an issue when we’re identifying as our body. When we actualize our Oneness, we experience our infiniteness. There’s no pressure. We may choose to stop and “smell the roses,” before beginning the next phase of our journey.
Using this site to ask questions; to share comments, experiences, and insights as we journey together; to build bridges; self-assembling pathways of developed, assertive, non-judgmental, joyful, loving, integrative enthusiasts, imaginal cells, and bootstrappers for social eversion to a more beautiful world.

the Universe will Open Doors
