A brilliant mind speaking in a time period of human history that was civilized; a time when free speech was respected. Malcolm Muggeridge identified as a “man of the left” by the way.
Want to change the world? There’s nothing to it.
Imagination is the most powerful tool we have; it’s our superpower. With great power comes great responsibility and we are responsible for the world we create. If we want a better world, we must imagine it first, and believe in that image. We see what we believe, we reap what we sow, and that all begins with our thoughts, so choose your thoughts wisely.
I cannot think of any song that describes the power of the imagination better than “Pure Imagination” sung by Willy Wonka, played by Gene Wilder, in the 1971 movie Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory. This is one of my favorite films of all time; it never gets old because it’s full of wonderful wisdom.

His wisdom is always pertinent, especially during these times of vulnerability:

If you are not totally IN LOVE with this earth, you’re missing something immense, inestimable, eternal. You’ve stopped loving being here because you’ve stopped loving humanity and all we are capable of. You’ve been groomed to do that – to fear everything and everybody, to trust nothing, to cower in the face of all adversity, to sit at home, afraid to go to restaurants, cafes, the theater, trains, airplanes…. and to believe it’s unsalvageable. That the earth is DONE.
This is the program. It seeps in – we are so utterly bombarded we cannot avoid it. However, Mother Earth, the goddess, will outlive all the evils – all the sickness – and rise again, purified by our love and this immense light that cannot be dimmed.
Find her in the forests, the ocean, the mountaintops. Listen to wind, the bird song, the music and the rhythm. Ground yourself in this TRUTH – this beauty – LOVING how majestically Earth and all her beings are standing, learning new ways of being.
Some choose the darkness – that is their karma to bear.
We choose THE LIGHT.
We, my fellow starseed, CHOOSE THE LIGHT.
But before we can effectively change the world, we have GOT to believe and understand that we want to be here – we came here to DO THIS, and we are CAPABLE, POWERFUL AND VISIONARY in our intent.
Take off your shoes. Walk in a field. Feel the earth beneath you and know that she needs you now. And we need her.
Now – let’s make a miracle.
The buck stops here.
Nobody needs to do this for us – not even light beings from beyond. I hear people asking me “when will they come to help us” and my answer is and has always been:
“WE’RE THE ONES. We ARE light beings from beyond!”
Let’s help ourselves, our planet and humanity at large…
