Imagination Rises Out Of The Jaws Of Defeat

Imagination&Obstacles

“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.”
– Einstein

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.

25 Quotes About The Power Of Imagination

January 9, 2017

I wrote these notes after releasing my second collection, Exit From The Matrix. This collection contains over 50 imagination exercises designed to increase an individual’s creative power:

“Consciousness wants to create new consciousness, and it can. Imagination is how it does it. If there were some ultimate state of consciousness, imagination would always be able to play another card and take it further.”

“If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, we’ve flattered reality enough. It doesn’t need any more. Reality needs a massive injection of imagination.”

“Imagination can be used to invent a better shade of nail polish or a universe. In a society devoted to nail polish, imagination is not to blame.”

“Imagination has extraordinary equanimity. It is just as happy to entertain and embody two conflicting realities as it is to spool out one uniform reality.”

“You can create the same thing over and over, and eventually you’ll be about as alive as a table. Inject imagination into the mix, and everything suddenly changes. You can go anywhere you want to. You can build worlds.”

“The lowest common denominator of consensus implies an absence of imagination. Everyone agrees; everyone is bored; everyone is obedient. On the opposite end of the spectrum, there are massive floods of unique individual creation, and that sought-after thing called abundance is as natural as the sun rising in the morning.”

“Sitting around in a cosmic bus station waiting for reality is what reality is. Everything else is imagination.”

“There are those who believe life is a museum. You walk through the rooms, find one painting, stroll into it and take up permanent residence. But the museum is endless. And if you were a painter, you’d never decide to live inside one of your canvases forever. You’d keep on painting.”

“Traveling to places one has never seen is far different from creating something that never existed before.”

“The relentless and obsessive search for all those things on which we can agree is a confession of bankruptcy. Instead, build one new thing.”

“We re-learn to live through and by imagination, and then we enter and invent new space and time. But space and time aren’t the superior forces. They operate and come into being at the tap of imagination.”

“With imagination, one can solve a problem. More importantly, one can skip ahead of the problem and render it null and void.”

“You can enter imagination as if were an infinitely fluid medium, or you can give it sharp lines and edges. You can balance left and right, or you can tilt it eighty degrees to the right. You can do anything you want to. You can put a million pink quarks in a bowl and turn the bowl upside down in the sky. It’s Tuesday or it’s Thursday. It’s raining. The sun is out. It’s raining and the sun is out.”

“There are a billion murals on a billion walls, and the person chooses one and falls down before it and devotes himself to it. He spends a thousand years trying to decipher it. So be it. Eventually, he’ll wind his way out of the labyrinth. Then he’ll enter another labyrinth and undergo the same process. He’ll do this on and on and on, and finally he’ll see that he can imagine his own labyrinth. So he does. He invents many labyrinths. Then one day, it’ll occur to him that he can imagine whatever he wants to. It doesn’t have to be labyrinth.”

“What feeds back to you from the product of your imagination is far less important than the fact that you imagined it. People love to ensnare themselves in what they have imagined. They try to inject meaning into it, so much meaning that they become tied up in useless interpretations. They are the ‘product people’. Dreams, paintings, collections of ideas and thoughts—they are obsessed with what they have invented. Just look at what you’ve created it, enjoy it, revel in it, and go on to create something else. This is the path.”

“You can imagine a cosmos that is a forgery of, and a substitute for, the individual. In fact, historically, people have done that on a continuous basis. It’s called organized religion.”

“Imagination isn’t a system. It might invent systems, but it is non-material. It’s a capacity. It feels no compulsion to imitate reality. It makes realities. Its scope is limited only by a person’s imagining of…

The Foundation Of Possibilities & Solutions

June 19, 2016

Just had recent conversations with a few people via a few different modalities, and saw some other particular musings by some folks that made me ruminate about what makes us do what we do as individuals.

The subject matter/common theme of these posts was that of imagination.

To start of, am quite thankful that there have been many people pushing me to carry on the journey that’s been placed before me.  This has taken shape in a variety of forms.

One of the biggest drivers behind me doing this new blog is the work of Jon Rappoport.

Rappoport is an investigative journalist and researcher that does a lot of rather incisive work in exposing many issues that plague society as a whole.  Most importantly however, he has made it his personal mission to elucidate how important imagination is to the individual.

In his book, The Secret Behind Secret Societies, Rappoport sums up what has made these societies extremely powerful in more ways than most can fathom, and this is the tradition of imagination.  When used by these societies/institutions, this tool has been used deviously to carefully mold the current reality structure that we have that is quite detrimental in many surreptitious ways.

Rappoport attacks that notion from myriad angles and is quite right to reinforce the importance of imagination as it’s something that has been zapped from society at many junctures

This was even discussed by myself and a few folks in respect to how imagination is oft made to seem as something that only children do when nothing could be further from the truth.

Without imagination we have no poetry, no music, no ideas, no paintings, no education, absolutely nothing.  All of it couples directly to imagination. 

Imagination’s vital importance can be seen in some of the most salient quotes that have elucidated about this particular topic:

“Imagination is more important than knowledge.  For knowledge is limited to all we know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.”
– Albert Einstein

“Imagination should be used, not to escape reality, but to create it.”
– Collin Wilson

“The man who has no imagination has no wings.”
– Muhammad Ali

“Logic will get you from from A to Z, imagination will get you everywhere.”
– Albert Einstein

“Imagination decides everything.”
– Blaise Pascal

“Your Imagination is your preview of life’s coming attractions.”
– Albert Einstein

“Can you imagine what I would do if I could do all I can?”
– Sun Tzu

“They who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.”
– Edgar Allan Poe

“Imagination is the spark that ignites the fire of creativity.”
– Richard Laurence Peterson

“Conceive of it this way. Far up in the sky you have people, individuals, who are inventing the fulfillment of their most profound desires, making them fact in the world, no matter what—and way down below, miles under the earth, you have other individuals who could be doing what the sky dwellers are, but they’ve bamboozled themselves into thinking they can’t. Instead, they think they’re trapped in every little response they might have to any old stimulus that comes along. Both groups of people are creative, but they’ve channeled their imaginations and creativity in vastly different ways. Waking up may be hard to do, but you either do or you don’t.”
– Jon Rappoport, Notes for Exit From The Matrix

“Our first endeavors are purely instinctive prompting of an imagination vivid and undisciplined. As we grow older reason asserts itself and we become more and more systematic and designing. But those early [imaginative] impulses, though not immediately productive, are of the greatest moment and may shape our very destinies. Indeed, I feel now that had I understood and cultivated instead of suppressing them, I would have added substantial value to my bequest to the world. But not until I had attained manhood did I realize that I was an inventor.”
– Nikola Tesla

Even Tesla mentions how he would have acted differently in his choices had he known the importance of such an idea.

When arguably the greatest modern mind in the world mentions what he does above in the manner that he does it, one should at minimum take note of it.

What’s so important about imagination?

Its the engine of creativity.  It’s the road which leads you to the destination you desire.  It’s the key to every ordeal what we face.  Again, Einstein said: “Logic will get you from from A to Z, imagination will get you everywhere.”

If you can imagine anything, why not imagine a better world?  Why not imagine solutions?  Why not act on it?  Why not imagine a better path to yourself?  Why not invent the reality you wish to invent?

It all starts with you.

Its all a choice.

And the beauty of creativity is that it spawns more choices.  Which spawns more chances to be creative and use imagination, which spawns more choices which…

You get the picture.

Use the endless creative potential of your inner self – your consciousness – and gravitate to that which helps you the most in leading a new life, a better life, one that will make you truly inspired, whatever that may be.

That’s just it, imagination knows no bounds.  Everything is fair game because the possibilities are endless.

Some people hear the word imagination, and they give you a curious askance look, as if that’s something so bizarre, so outlandish, it should never be mentioned.

Others hear the word imagination, and instantly their minds  end up spawning tornadoes of creativity that go unleashing tsunamis of possibilities upon the world, leaving it a better place just by their mere actions.

Which one are you?

The Blank Page

The Blank Page

It stares at you knowing
all the possibilities
that are boundless
within your infinite consciousness

It waits, patiently
ever your friend, always there
helping you navigate
within the roads of life

What roads?

Today we’ve visited
the realm of confusion
the halls of sorrow
the avenues of reproach
and many other mazes of course

Yet, it remains
Always there

Knowingly, it encourages you
in the best of days
in the worst of days

It is a mirror
it is a thought
It is an action
your reflection
created
forever

It inspires
it helps create
but more importantly
it is a manifestation of you

Of your innermost being
of your essence

A sliver, yes
but a notable one

One shade of color
in a kaleidoscope of possibilities

Today..
It began grey
but, after some thought…

Silver
Yes, Silver it will be

Forests will meet their demise on this day

That page stands not a chance

Who I Write For (Updated)

TheIndividual
Source: NoMoreFakeNews.com
Jon Rappoport
January 21, 2016

I have published this piece before. It stands as my best description of why I do what I do. And now I’m adding a new introduction:

When I began writing seriously, in the summer of 1959, the idea that I would focus on The Individual was the farthest thing from my mind.

I assumed everyone was an individual. Case closed. Why bother to mention it? Why bother to think about it?

Even then, though, a massive propaganda operation was underway. It was aimed at replacing the individual with the group. Some people call this cultural Marxism. It’s much larger than that. It’s Collectivism at every possible level. It aims to eradicate the individual’s awareness that he is an individual. Why? Because if he truly knows what he is, then he also knows that society and civilization are opposing him. They are dedicated to the creation and sustenance of groups. Groups are manageable. Individuals aren’t.

Needless to say, much has happened since that time.

Skipping ahead, by the late 1990s it had become apparent to me that many people were falling by the wayside. Their “universal tolerance” was a form of self-sabotage. They were sacrificing themselves on the soft buttery altar of “doing good.” It was obvious to me, for example, that the notion of repairing all past injustices of society was a well with no bottom. It was a covert op. It was an attempt to entangle minds in a case of amnesia about individual power. Rather than trying to raise people up, it was a plan to victimize a permanent (and ever expanding) underclass.

I wasn’t sure my message about all this would reach many readers. I wasn’t sure what their reaction would be. But I didn’t care. I was motivated to make my case. So I did. So I do.

And lo and behold, people have responded. Over and above the nonsensical static of trolls and self-appointed victims, a wave of confirmation reached me. People were still there—as individuals. They knew it. They were seeing the demise of society around them.

Beyond confirmation, though, what I was aiming at was (and is) expansion of individual power. Not just an acknowledgment of it.

Imagination

Imagination…
Can Imagine Nations…
As cells within a Universe…
Where You and I Verse …
At the University …
Thence muse, within Universe Cities
And detach a bit yonder…
Thus, we go on and wonder…
…about the meanings of life..
And how synchronicities are rife…
With the greatest of rapture…
When we go recapture…
All that’s beyond our vision …
Like a intensely soft submission….
To all that is mind-numbing, yet real…
Like when consciousness reveals…
Our real eyes…
That realize…
Real lies…
that unseal cries…
and often crystallize…
Where the profound inner sanctum is found…
Thence promptly then unbound …
Slowly towards infinity …
Wholly spawning affinities…
A Youniverse of possibilities …
Where we dream, manifest …
Of worlds not oppressed…
Thence journey on a quest..
Where there is ceaseless freedom…
Those shadows? We don’t need ’em …
To the gallows we’ll thus feed ’em …
Because they really wouldn’t treasure …
What they really couldn’t measure …
What is priceless; what has meaning…
And they kept on falsely leaning…
On all truly material …
Rather than the wondrous ethereal…
That helps us feel surreal …
That shows life’s true bliss…
As we all journey on through this…
Door way of our soul …
Finding out what makes us whole …
Reaching now the door way…
We go my way? We go your way?
Our key – Imagination …
You’re free – endless creation…
