The Word of the Week - Imagination is greater than knowledge!
My imagination is the creative force that connects me to the divine.
It is here that I learn to believe, with conviction, in my desires and allow the Universe
to bring to me, without effort, my wishes fulfilled.
Albert Einstein was spot on in his quote that “Imagination is greater than knowledge” and it has taken me a while to realise the truth of his words. Whilst knowledge opens your mind to wisdom and understanding, your imagination is the true key, which fuels the latent creative abilities that reside in each and every one of us. Just consider this for a moment. It was in the imagination of man/woman that brought to fruition, space travel, smart phones, stem cell research and currently the possibility of actual avatars. If you can imagine a thing….you can indeed create it. This is what Einstein meant, when you close your eyes to the world that you see and go into the stillness of your mind, it is here that you create a world of your desires, it is here where the seemingly impossible becomes possible, it is here where the “I can’t” becomes the “I can.” This is the spiritual law of attraction.
“To see things in the seed, that is genius.”
When you sow a seed into the ground, contained in that seed is everything that is required to enable a plant to grow. This seed can be very small and it is placed in the darkness of the soil. Contained in the soil is the necessary components that encourage the seed to sprout and grow. You cannot hurry this process, you only trust and know that what needs to take place will take place in its own time. With water and sunlight, this tiny seed pushes through the soil and starts to grow. This analogy explains when you still your mind (the darkness of the soil) and plant the seed of your desires by visualising that which you desire to become, you then create a feeling (the components of the soil) that matches your desires. You imagine what it feels like to be the person you want to become or have the comforts that you desire for yourself. You regularly visit this darkness and water it with your feelings of imagining that you have that which you desire. You then give it light by believing with conviction that it is yours, until one day and without effort, the seed (your desire) starts to grow. In your belief, you replace all thoughts of doubt with a conviction that you have or are already what you want.
This is the key to creation. In every present moment, you have the ability, the wherewithal and the power to create anything that you imagine by rejecting your current circumstances and focusing totally upon your desires. This is why the mind is the most powerful tool in the universe.
“Whatever the mind can conceive and believe the mind can achieve.”
Just for today, embrace your power, close your eyes and feed your imagination. We are here to create, so let US create!
