“Imagination should be used, not to escape reality, but to create it.”
– Collin Wilson
“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire word, and all there ever will be to know and understand.”
Imagination is the skeleton key to life, for it opens all the doors that allow the individual to venture through all of the possible roads of life. Having the option to venture upon the unknown to travel the roaring roads of life allows the individual not only to become more cognizant through life experience and learn from such ventures, but also to employ imagination in order to seek and attain mastery of the self. This allows the individual the ability to live life to the fullest extent.
This is why it’s vital to respect the creative consciousness of the individual, because there is no path imagination won’t venture upon, there is no solution that can’t be attained by the open-minded skeptical individual who ceaselessly seeks to attain understanding through constant employing of the triumvirate that is the heart, mind, and spirit.
As imagination is employed boundlessly, a more thorough understanding of life is achieved with the acquisition of experience and wisdom each new day brings forth. This serves as further impetus for the individual as they continue to seek new untapped ground to learn from while also exploring the conscious streams of life, because they realize with each new set of experiences, new possibilities arise, new solutions are to be had.
Regardless of the path one takes, with each new obstacle that arises, the individual grows further with each new choice made. The more one grows, the more capable one feels. The more capable one feels, the more they accomplish. And the more they accomplish, the more they grow. Therefore, growth serves as a catalyst for additional growth and experience, which is all fueled by endless inspiration of being able to tackle any problem that arises with the employment of imagination.
This is why imagination and creativity will continue to serve as an engine of growth by which the individual evolves, ultimately raising their quality of consciousness with each new well thought out and pondered idea that is ruminated upon deeply. This growth undoubtedly couples to the life lessons that help us persevere through life doggedly, while also serving as sparks that ignite the embers of creativity.
As individuals embrace the resonant feeling of inspiration and creativity that follow the use of imagination and how those spawn new streams of consciousness and possibilities, they realize that imagination is the one tool in life that cannot be overlooked. Without imagination, one cannot achieve anything.
And when imagination and inspiration couple, there is no end in sight to the type of accomplishments an individual may unleash.
New ideas arise, old shackles melt, and imagination becomes the key to a healthy and fulfilling life.
The precious and vast streams of consciousness that abound us are the canvas upon which imagination artfully creates its dreams – the individual’s dream.
In fact, writer, philosopher and naturalist Henry David Thoreau once intimated saliently:
“This world is but canvas to our imaginations.”
Humanity is here to create, and individuals cannot create without imagination.
Imagination leads to dreams, and dreams lead individuals to change one’s life; dreams help individuals inspire others; dreams have also throughout history helped change the course of civilization. All of these dreams that are inherently woven within the core of our being, and are entwined within the web of life serve to vault the pallid, mediocre, and dull components of life into a completely different constellation of possibilities altogether.
Individuals whose insights and aspirations made them employ imagination in creatively unique ways, time and time again turned seemingly inalterable tides of destiny and transformed them into something new and fresh hitherto inconceivable.
Individuals such as Einstein, Steve Jobs, Michael Jordan, The Beatles, and more, all had ‘epic failures’. And yet, failure does not define them.
They imagined something better, something greater.
They imagined a better life for themselves, made a plan, CHANGED their paths, and each set a new rousing course the likes of which nigh nobody has followed. Promptly, the jaws of defeat were smashed shut and not allowed to feed on their dreams.
Countless individuals such as the above have shown that when individual mindsets are lucid and precise, there is nothing that can stop them and their imagination.
Doubt no longer exists.
The insipid fades into the past.
Obstacles become opportunities.
Setbacks become turning points.
Life’s journey becomes an inspiring adventure.
And the creative individual becomes ultimately free.
