doing is a quantum leap from imagining


“Doing is a quantum leap from imagining.” – Barbara Sher

I’m an observer of things. I love to look deeply, view things from multiple angles; close up, far away, sideways, upside down. I study my feelings. I look for a way out. especially if it’s something that is out of my comfort zone. I don’t step back, I just linger in looking at it awhile.

And then I leap.

And when I do finally plunge in, I lose myself in it fully & completely. I’ve never regretted taking the time to ready myself or for taking the leap itself. And I’ve never felt alone in the process. The Universe, the Divine, my Beloved, my Husband, my Sisters; they are there with me in the same observation, interest and discovery. There is a tether that connects, even when it is just my body engaged in the experience.  We never feel alone if we know love.

I’m mesmerized by the person who, as if by instinct alone, can jump right in. Their confidence, their curiosity, their lust for life. I’m drawn to them, in awe and in love with them! They inspire and delight me and invite me to push past my comfort zone and crack open a little wider, revealing a part of me that I’m falling in love with all the more right now. The part of me that is hungry to feel, see and experience the miriad of colors, sounds, sights and cultures of this life. To expand my aperture before I don’t have this body to experience these things in anymore.

It seems an endless opening, widening without boundaries into the infinite. Yet I have no fear of its vastness, only a desire to see more of its intricate design.

How extraordinary we are to have the opportunity of this lifetime to experience this. This Being who is designed to experience our fullest senses of our body, mind and spirit.

I’ll keep imagining. I have a very keen & robust imagination! But it is the doing, that I revel in with this human existence.
