Imagination is creativity in action. Imagination draws on experiences and knowledge of the World around us and combines them with the complete unknown to makes something new.
From Imagination, Walt Disney Built an empire around a mouse.
From imagination, Elon Musk built and manufactured an all-electric luxury state of the art automobile.
Imagination is the ability to form a mental image of something that is not perceived through the five senses. It is the ability of the mind to build mental scenes, objects, or events that do not exist, are not present, nor have happened in the past.
Oh, The Places, You will Go! …when you exercise your imagination.
Remember the scene from the movie, “Field of Dreams”? ” If you build it, they will come.” Kevin Costner’s character built the baseball field and boy did they come! Imagination makes it happen.
Einstein once said…” Knowledge is limited, Imagination encircles the World.”
We are all born with creativity, But many of us do not exercise our imagination.
Through imagination, Peace Pilgrim traveled the World without any money nor knowing where she would sleep at night, all in the name of peace…and an idea that there is peace and love all around the World.
Try this: to spark your imagination;
Spend time in nature, Spend 24 hours without your electronic devices
Spend 24 hours without your electronic devices…and no social media.
Hold a face2face conversation with a friend, relative, colleague, or even a stranger.
Spend an hour a day in complete silence. These simple exercises will give you a new perspective on and about life.
This will make your thoughts …YOUR THOUGHTS! The daily nuances of daily life tend to clutter your mind and distort your thinking.
Other peoples’ thoughts and ideas are implanted in your mind the more your are exposed to these people, places and events.
Break the daily mode of your life and open yourself up to a whole new World.
I like to use a term I learned in music theory many yeas ago, “Syncopate” your life.
Accentuate uncommon ideas, times and places that you would not normally do.
Eat breakfast at night, Brush your teeth in the dark, Try new foods, Travel to new places, Take a shower in the dark, attend a seminar on a subject you know absolutely nothing about, talk to a senior citizen at length, watch kids at play, join in if they will allow it. and have fun, you get the idea.
The aforementioned exercises will spark new life…into your life.
Peace, Love and Joy,
