Do You Use all of your Imagination

IMAGINATION: THE WORKSHOP OF THE MIND

The Fifth Step toward Riches

As I was thinking on this chapter I turn my mind to great Artists and one that immediately came to mind was John Lennon and the song he wrote entitled “Imagine”. There are many imaginings quoted but I believe the following sums it all up
“You may say I'm a dreamer but I'm not the only one I hope someday you'll join us and the world will live as one”
  
Imagination exists in many areas of our lives and Hill quotes many in this chapter, the Enchanted Kettle which birthed the Coca Cola Company, the dream of a pastor Dr. Gunsaulus, who dreamed of a university were students would be taught practical subjects instead of the theoretical, thus equipping them for today’s world. Dr. Gunsaulus pondered over the idea for more than two years but it was not until he decided to take action and put the idea to infinite intelligence coupled with a demand that the one million dollars he required would be provided within a week that things happened.

He announced through the newspapers that he would preach the following day on ‘what I would do if I had a million dollars’. He prepared the Sermon, read it the following morning before he departed only to realize that when he was to deliver the sermon his notes were at home. He delivered the Sermon using his subconscious mind, the result was that someone was so inspired by what he heard, that he there and then undertook to provide the million dollars requested. Thus the Armour Institute of Technology was founded.

Note, in both these cases there is one underlying truth; “IDEAS CAN BE TRANSMUTED INTO CASH THROUGH THE POWER OF DEFINITE PURPOSE,
PLUS DEFINITE PLANS”.

Hill states another fact, ‘anything a man can, conceive can be created’. In his age the airplane was developed, allowing man to fly with and faster than birds. He also foresaw that the time would come when man could breakfast on one side of America and lunch on the other. Man’s advancement in the field of technology have been enormous since TGR was first published, computers, landing a man on the Moon, together with advancements in all the sciences including the study of the Brain, combating diseases, studying the universe with ever more powerful telescopes.

Even in the fields of Architecture and Engineering there have been major advancements based on initially selective imagination but where this cannot supply the necessary solution, creative imagination has been used to develop new design parameters, materials and construction methods.
    
Unfortunately our creative minds are often suppressed at an early age by negative reactions to ideas, however with practice the creative mind can be reignited by use similar to muscles in the body. I try and practice each day some use for the creative imagination to apply to an idea or dream.

May we all be blessed with visions and dreams as stated in Joel Chapter 3:28. “And afterward. I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your old men will see visions”.
