RICHARD MAYER, CEO, INSPIRATION, is the principal force behind Inspired Spaces. An insight that came to him in October 2008 took the shape of two words… Inspired Spaces or IS in its short form. This revelation was such that ‘inspired spaces’ meant physical, emotional, mental, spiritual or any other space, with spiritual being the essence of life… the ultimate source of inspiration.
Tapping into the essence via a ‘tap on the shoulder’ in 1976 by Sydney Banks, a philosopher and author, made Richard aware of who we are and why we are here. It was following an ‘awakening from within’ that life began anew for Richard. His revelation that… “I’m okay” …was that point in time, a defining moment, which forever changed Richard’s appreciation of who he is and how it is possible to experience life on a conscious plane that was very, very broad and deep.
In the friendship that blossomed between Richard and his inspirator, there were many times where a simple conversation between them passed on wisdom as to how one could live one’s life. One such pearl Syd shared with Richard early on in their relationship… “Follow your dreams. One day you will ‘wake up’ and know how to live your dreams.”
We all have this within us, the ability to dream. The extent to which the dream unfolds is driven solely by one’s awareness of the essence of life and what this means, then engaging life on those terms. The realm of infinity is ours to explore and enjoy.
To close and in reflecting on the words of Richard Bach, the secret to finding something solid to stand on or learning to fly, is knowing that… there will always be something solid to stand on… we already know how to fly!
S-o-o-o… what’s your story? What’s your dream?
