“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.” ―Albert Einstein

“Mašta je mnogo važnija od znanja. Jer je znanje ograničeno onime što trenutno znamo i razumemo, dok mašta obuhvata ceo svet i sve što će ikada moći da se sazna i razume.” – Albert Anštajn

“You have the power to design a new life for yourself. Forget limiting yourself. Forget being reasonable. Forget being realistic. It is time to use your imagination and pretend that you get to have a better life now, because you do.” ―Daeryl Holzer

“Imate moć da dizajnirate novi život za sebe. Zaboravite na ograničavanje sebe. Zaboravite na razum. Zaboravite na realističnost. Vreme je da koristiti svoju maštu i pretvarajte se da možete imati bolji život sada, zato što možete.” – Deril Holzer

“Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine, and at last, you create what you will.” ―George Bernard Shaw

“Mašta je početak kreacije. Zamisliš ono što želiš, zaželiš ono što si zamislio i na kraju stvoriš ono što si želeo.” – Džordž Bernard Šo

“If you fall in love with the imagination, you understand that it is a free spirit. It will go anywhere, and it can do anything.” ―Alice Walker

“Ako se zaljubiš u maštu, onda razumeš da je ona slobodnog duha. Otićiće bilo kuda i može da uradi bilo šta.” – Alisa Voker

“To bring anything into your life, imagine that it’s already there.” ―Richard Bach

“Da bi privukao bilo šta u svoj život, zamisli da ga već imaš.” – Ričard Bah

Ljubav/Love

Ima dana kada se probudim uzemljena, puna snage, svesna života u meni i oko mene. Tada vidim stvari izoštrenije, kao da se materija razliva i dopušta suštini da se izrazi. Postanem svesnija malih stvari koje čine život, koje znače mnogo više nego što smo spremni da prihvatimo, zbog kojih sam sva u zahvalnosti ovoga jutra, u miru i veri, skoro kao da sam i sama oslobođena svega što je suvišno, bestelesna, lagana duša koja peva u ritmu sunčevih zraka.

Možda je ova kiša isprala u meni brigu, ljutnju, strah… ostavivši me čudu života svežu i obnovljenu, da mu se divim, da ga slavim, da ga istražujem, kao novorođenče koje prvi put otkriva svet, koje prvi put ponovo otkriva ljubav.

There are days when I wake up grounded, full of strength, totally aware of all the life inside of me and around me. In those times I see things clearer, as if the matter has disperse before me allowing for the essence to reveal the self. I become mindful of the little things that make the living, that mean much more than we are ready to acknowledge, for which I am full of gratitude this morning, in peace and faith, almost as if I am released from all that is redundant, just this incorporeal, airy soul that’s singing in the rhythm of the sunbeams.

Could be this rain has washed away all worry, anger, fear in me… leaving me to the miracle of life fresh and renewed, to admire it, to celebrate it, to explore it, like a newborn revealing the world for the first time, for the first time revealing the love again.

Ringišpil života / Life’s carousel

Život je jedan šareni ringišpil. Čas si na vrhu i rukama možeš da opipaš nebo, a već sledećeg trenutka udišeš prašinu. Često ti je muka od svega i samo želiš da sve stane, da siđeš, ali ipak ponovo se penješ i vrtiš, vrtiš, vrtiš u krug i gore i dole i kad ti se najviše vrti u glavi vrištiš od sreće i zadovoljstva i osećaš se kao na krilima neke ptice sa kojom letiš i nemisleći kuda, samo osećaš da si zadovoljan tu gde jesi.

Bez obzira koliko bilo i mučno i teško, makar i zarad samo jednog takvog trenutka spokojstva, radosti i slobode, vredi se uvek iznova vraćati tom ringišpilu boja i života.

Life is one colorful carousel. In a second you are on the top of it and you can touch the sky with your hands, and yet at the next moment you can breathe the dust. You are often sick of everything and you just want everything to stop, you are ready to go down, but still you climb and spin again, you spin and spin in a circle and up and down and when everything in your head is spinning the most you scream with happiness and pleasure, and you feel like you are on the wings of a bird you fly with and not thinking where, you just feel satisfied where you are.

No matter how painful and difficult it may be, even if only for the sake of just such a moment of serenity, joy and freedom, it is always worth returning to that carousel of colors and life.

Panta rei… Sve prolazi, sve se menja…/Panta rei… Everything passes, everything changes…

Nemoj se plašiti da izgubiš! U životu nekada nam se čini da nemamo dovoljno, da nikome nije dovoljno stalo do nas, da ne vredimo dovoljno, da ne dobijamo dovoljno… Istina je da imamo samo onoliko koliko smo spremni da damo, da je drugima stalo onoliko koliko je nama samima stalo do nas samih, da vredimo samo onoliko koliko volimo, da dobijamo onoliko koliko možemo da podnesemo.

Život je kao reka, on stalno teče i menja se, jedina konstanta tog kretanja si ti sam. Stoga, ako hoćeš da živiš ispunjen i srećan život, treba i ti da tečeš, da se prilagodiš, naviješ na ritam reke i menjaš. Uhvatiš ritam života i tečeš, skrećeš i okrećeš se onako kako se on uvija, krivuda i teče. Kada postaneš dobar plivač spoznaćeš i svoju kreatorsku moć i shvatiti da ta reka koja te nosi nije stihijska bujica, bez smisla i cilja. Ti si taj koji joj dubiš i oblikuješ korito, određuješ pravac i cilj kretanja. Smisao života si ti!

Život je konstantna promena, poput reke, neprestano teče. Ukoliko mu se opireš, samo se zamaraš i stojiš u mestu, tek kada se prepustiš životnoj sili osetiš punu draž življenja, a nagrada je kada se probudiš u osvit zore, umiješ lice i shvatiš da se tvoja životna reka uliva u more ljubavi…

Do not be afraid to lose! In life, sometimes, it seems like we don’t have enough, that nobody truly cares about us, that we are not worth enough, that we don’t get enough… The truth is, we have only as much as we are prepared to give, the others care about us as much as we care for ourselves, we are worth as much as we love, we get exactly as much as we can handle.

Life is like a river, constantly flowing and changing, the only constant of that movement is yourself. Thus, if you want to live fulfilled and happy life you should flow as well, adjust, tune yourself up to the rhythm of the river and change. You catch the rhythm of life and flow, you twist and turn the way life curls, curves and flows. When you become a good swimmer, you will realize your creative power and you’ll understand that the river that carries you is not accidental flood, with no sense and purpose. You are the one who carves and shapes its bedrock, designate the way and purpose of its movement. The purpose of life is you!

Life is a never-ending change, like the river, it constantly flows. If you resist to it, you will only get tired and stay at the same place, but when you surrender to the force of life, you feel the full delight of living, and the reward is that when you wake up at the first dawn, wash your face and realize that your river of life flows into the sea of ​​love…
