Great ideas, awesome truths, and opportunities need big hats. One often associated big hats and men with big egos, but there is more to the story. Big ideas need people with courage. Big ideas need open minds to grow and blossom into reality. Big ideas need wide open souls for nurture and care. When everything comes together the scene is right out of a Texas commercial; everything is big here!
California and New York share a culture of being open, changing, and looking for opportunities. This isn’t to take anything away from other places in the world. It is an observation of where communities and people with big hats seem to gather. There is little scientific in the observation, it is a simple reflection of where great ideas find places in which to grow, change, and become even better.
I know I am not always open to great ideas. I don’t think anyone has an exclusive on being defensive, blind, and stubborn. Everyone has their moments – on good days and bad, in times of peace and turmoil, when you realize it and even when you don’t.
I find as I let those I trust be God’s voice in my life I see, hear, and value great ideas. It is as if the process of listening to God creates an even greater ability to hear, appreciate, and internalize God’s voice. Initially I thought this was an incredible discovery, unique for our age. Yet in hindsight the opportunity has been here all along. Centuries ago, in a God conversation, one man observed the following; “the living you [God] make larger than life. The more life you give, the more glory you display, and stretch the borders to accommodate more living!” (Isaiah 26.15)
Today is an opportunity for you and me to wear big hats. We can change the world with great ideas. We can realize the future, now. We can experience what it means to be one with God. Everything is possible. Anything can happen. It all begins with our openness to the present, in this moment.
