“If you cannot imagine the vision of your dreams how are you ever going to get them. It will be there in front of you all your life but you won’t be able to see it. If you have a strong imagination you could be anything, you could be anywhere and you could be anyone. People can bind you through boundaries but no one out there has the power to bind your imagination.”
All of us know about time travelers but how many of us believe in them. have you tried knowing what made them travel through time. The answer may be or may not be their imagination. They had such strong imaginations that they broke the boundaries of time but we doesn’t have even a quarter of it to reach there.
This is the story of two captive birds. Every one of us get something as a legacy, they got captivity as a part of their legacy. They had big beautiful wings but they didn’t know how to flap them to fly. But even in that captive condition one of them would always tell the other one that when he will make his first flight it would amaze every one. He would flap his wings with such energy and strength that it will create turbulence on earth and his soar would be so high that his wings will touch the clouds. The other one would always laugh at him and would consider him as a day dreamer. He learnt to compromise with his condition and accepted it as his ultimate future. As the days went by both of them grew older and theirs wings grew stronger but only one of them could imagine the strength of his wings and for the other it was just another thing which will be there with him but he won’t be able to use it.
“Anyone who lives within their means suffers from a lack of imagination.”- Oscar Wilde.
One fine day the holy gods showered mercy on them and someone did come to release them from their captivity only to give them another one.
“We have only this opportunity. We have to fly or we’ll be always captives.” The day dreamer asked his fellow bird.
“But how to escape? We don’t know how to fly.” The other one replied.
“You are a bird and you have wings so you can fly.”
“But I never tried that before.”
“There’s always a first time and life never gives you second chance.” The day dreamer said and when the moment came the day dreamer flew to the sky with wings wide open and with such strong flight that no one could keep him captive anymore. His flight did create a turbulence and his soar did reach the clouds. But the other one couldn’t move his wings, his fear stopped him from taking his chances and forced him to captivity again.
What made one bird break his captivity and other one remain captive forever?
The answer is lack of “Imagination”. Your imagination needs no experience or knowledge. It is like a bird with wings wide open soaring high and deep in the sky. Your imagination can break all the barriers setting you free enough to overcome all you weaknesses.
“ The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease for ever to be able to do it.”- J.M. Barrie.
