Imagine [reviewed]

Today, in our world, this world that surrounds us, in every ways, we create an image of the things from the visible face that we know and we just can see upon all of its face if we were taught to. We just see the things as they used to be and as they used to mean... like a glass of water... it is just a glass cup... cylindrical... may be made from plastic or crystal glass... opened by on of the tops... and we fill it with water... pure water or treated water with that clored taste... But our parents and his parents and before them, were used to imagine boats, big ships, rainstorms... inside of that simple and common cup of water...

We lose this fantasy because we have, and want, and demand, that everything should be explained... we want an explanation to everything. I saw yesterday the "Big Fish" movie and this generation gap could be seen perfectly... is perfectly shown the contrast between a conventional life and other, coloured with fantasy, and how we can elevate ourselves to other frontiers by the dream... "It's by the dream that we go", someone wrote, and fantasising is one way of turning to a closer reality, the dreams that we have, and live them, as they were real. It's not living in an imaginated world... it is live this real world, with his own magic and his fantasy that the oldest people (the wisest ones as we say many times say) were taught to see.

On the last 20th of May, passed 500 years of the Cristovao Colombus death... the man that come true the dream, the fantasy, the imagination of a remote possibility, even a foolish idea of reach the India by the sea. He didn't arrive to India... but the fantasy took him to an inimaginated world... The New World...

Sometime we need to imagine another world... Right from the beggining until the end of our life time, there are moments when the unknown, the imagination can let us go throw the pain, through loniless, throw the physical boundaries that we have in front. We can see this in the "Finding Neverand" movie... The Neverland can be right in front of you... you just have to close your eyes, turn around, smile, let your spirit fly and imagine...

I think that our life could be much more attractive, stimulating if we try this... painting the unexpected, seeing throw the visible face of things. I am learning and studying how can this idea be developed in my professional life...

I often use imaginary themes with scouts to help them to reach some aims that we establish from the beginning of an activity. It's also useful to explore some thematics that have important messages that we didn’t saw or didn't pay much attention but have so many things to teach, from which we can learn so much and bring so much value to what, day by day, is given to us to LIVE.
