Genie Us


Do it with flair, do it with abandon, do it with pain, frustration, and HIGH DRAMA if that is what you prefer. Just do it! Do it now! After all, there is no other time frame in which Genius can or will play itself out.

Start something, let it flow, set it aside, let it glow. Every vision that is well begun is already half done. Don’t push, don’t rush, and please don’t hesitate. Just keep moving. Keep bobbing and weaving, like “Rocky” dancing in the ring! Your only opponent is self-doubt and false humility.

I’ll end with a favorite prayer that I once heard spoken, in the movie “Seventh Voyage of Sinbad.” It was an invocation, that called forth the genie (whose name was Barani) from the bottle that held him captive. Speak it with me, when you feel ready. I’m sure he is still listening.

“From the land beyond, beyond... from the world past hope and fear, I bid you Genie, now appear.” Now. Stand back, close your eyes... BELIEVE and speak your first wish.
