The Power of Ideas (Part One)
Although I’ve been drawing most of my life I can only really remember having the ability to control this talent somewhere around 4 years old. By the time I turned five I got a hold of an oil Paint by Number set. It was one of those cheap simulated board canvases with numbers that matched the numbers on the small plastic oil paint containers and they came with a few red enamel paint brushes. My mom who was very creative used these paint by number kits to paint pictures for the walls in the duplex we lived in. She often did these kinds of things along with sewing clothes. In between all this she’d drive out to the military base to create these ceramic roosters and salt & pepper shakers she used to make. Every now and then she’d take me along. There were very large multiple rooms like a cafeteria style set up and most of the attendees were military housewives. In one area they’d create the ceramic figures, in another they’d paint the figurines and in the last room is where they’d fire the objects that were painted in these ovens they called kilns. We were living in Fairbanks Alaska at the time because my dad was stationed there in the U.S. Army. During this time my father had an amazing collection of music and he used to love to sing in his spare time. But occasionally I would find him at the kitchen table doing a few figure drawings of people. My dad was very good at drawing full figure images of people and it was during this time that I began to recognize that I too had the gift to draw and the power to control my ideas. In this kind of environment burgeoning with creativity is where I uncovered multiple gifts. This is also where I experienced the beginning of my discovery of how diverse gifts influence one another and spring forth through the power of ideas.
THE OUTER WORLD CREATES ENVIRONMENTS FOR THE INNER WORLD…
It is easy for most people to see how we are shaped by the environments of our communities. Having lived in 13 cities here in the US and two cities in Germany and being a teacher of history I see very clearly how environments affect everything. We are all shaped by the geographical land masses, oceans and climates of the environments we live in. Those things alone dictate everything from what kind of clothes we were, which trickles down to how we look, what kinds of crops we grow, the things we manufacture, what we eat and even how we speak. But it doesn’t end there we are influenced by cultures, religions and the races of people and these things likewise affect everything I named above. However beyond those basic influences of culture, religion and races and our environment there are other things that also affect how we think and eventually how we behave. And with all these outer influences shaping and affecting who we become it is so easy to forget that there is an inner world of influence…a world of thoughts and ideas that eventually have more impact upon who we become than all the changes in weather put together could ever have upon us. It is here in the environment of our inner-hemispheres that we have the greatest control upon our present condition when we use the power of ideas to fuel our successes.
IF YOUR IDEAS ARE POWERFUL THEY’RE INFLUENCING THE WORLD…
Are your ideas influencing the world? Shoot me an email at [email protected] and share with me how your ideas are influencing the world. Think about it! It was the power of ideas that brought your parents together. And the power of their ideas that influenced the future of the world’s collective ideas when you were consumated and birthed into this planet. Every member of the world is a part of the collective governing body of our world, our countries, our cities and our communities through the power of ideas. From Steve Jobs release of the iphone to CNN’s release of the news everyone is influencing the power of ideas. Every person within this creation we call earth has the complete authority to change the future direction of this world through the ideas they release. Whether their ideas are productive or unproductive they still have influence. Like the butterflies in China can impact the weather in Italy we have the ability to affect the future climate of ideas. But the kind of effects that we desire to have must be considered before we take action. Often times our ideas are creating environments for us that are not strong enough to resonate the kind of powerful influence we want them to have. If you desire to really use the power of ideas to work in your benefit remember that powerful ideas have a life force that is very influential. So don’t you want to start thinking about choosing the kind of ideas that could really influence the world? (Part Two)
