Rejuvenating sunrise walk in beautiful botanical gardens. Intuitively recalled childhood, pondered significance today? Serene, soft thoughts in stillness. An enigmatic, energetic feel.

Directing attention to subconscious thoughts reveals value of internal realities. An entire universe spins below the level of everyday conscious existence. An unknown self resides within. Gives freedom to play, explore, discover, create, live our dreams, inspirations, ambitions, motivations.

When we consider instant ideas with waking minds, recognise importance of incredible thoughts, reminded of joy, wealth of wisdom, wonder we’re all uniquely gifted with.
