Reimagining Humpty Dumpty
Off the wall, you fell
Apart. Recreate yourself
As a work of art!
~ Amara Rose
Phil Wikel dove headlong into music and formed a band. Tammie O’Rielly co-created an inspirational radio network. Lee Glickstein launched a non-profit foundation to help men shed tears instead of blood. Around the globe, we’re stepping into our creative essence full out. This might be the truest definition of following your heart.
In the January issue of “O” magazine, Oprah Winfrey wrote (musing about what it took to launch her network, OWN): “Fear comes from uncertainty. Once you clarify your purpose for doing something, the way to do it becomes clear. Let this be the year you release your fears about what you can achieve. Know for sure what you want and be willing to give yourself what you need to get it. Cheers to new beginnings!”
One of the more amazing untold stories, recounted in American History Revised, by Seymour Morris, Jr., is how a famous actress, also a brilliant scientist and mathematician, invented a communications breakthrough during World War II.
In 1940, Hollywood star Hedy Lamarr, in concert with avant-garde composer George Antheil, developed and patented a method of radio-frequency communication now known as “spread spectrum” technology – which later became the basis for many forms of wireless communication, including cell phones and the internet. The pair offered their ingenious idea to the U.S. military during the early days of World War II – and was rejected because the concept was so far ahead of its time. Lamarr wasn’t recognized for her remarkable contribution until just before her death in 2000, when she was inducted into the Electronic Design Hall of Fame (along with such icons of the Information Age as Steve Jobs, William Hewlett and David Packard.)
This is the moment to embrace the Star Trek motto, “To boldly go where no one has gone before.” Globally, we’re in the new Earth birth canal; we turbo-charge the journey when we add individual brilliance to our collective cauldron. Deepak Chopra just posted on his Twitter page, “The highest expression of love is creativity.” As the creative juices sizzle in the alchemical fire, they ignite ever more prismatic possibility.
How can you become creageous – that’s creatively courageous – in 2011 and beyond? Here’s to each of our innovative, inspired, resource-full, visionary, experimental, artistic, enterprising endeavors!
