I learned at a young age from my mother, that our mind is the one thing we can always rely on. No matter what anyone does to us or takes from us, they cannot take our minds or the way we think about things.
The more I learn, the more I understand that perhaps our greatest gift is our IMAGINATION.
Einstein said: “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.”
We can use our imagination to torture ourselves…imagining all the bad things that COULD happen, (things that are not actually happening right now).
We can use our imagination for a place of peace, faith, trust, and creativity. At any time, we can begin to think about what we would LOVE for our lives versus what we FEAR in our lives.
We can use our imagination, just like we did when we were children, to create a vision for our future. We create a vision through our imagination so that we can begin to FEEL as if it is happening now – We want our vision to be written in present tense and we want to connect with it daily.
There is so much power in this. I can barely scratch the surface in this short video of why this is a powerful thing to do, but I will give you some clues that will point you in the right direction:
Clue #1: Our thoughts and our feelings emit a frequency that can be measured now in science.
As we think a thought, we are transmitting this frequency out into the Universe –
As we feel gratitude – that feeling is attracting back into your life the equivalent of that frequency.
That may sound weird to you, because we were not taught this in school, and even though we may have been taught this in church, perhaps, we did not realize to the extent of how true it is.
Maybe we were taught there were “conditions” to this law being true.
We are learning now that this Universal law that God placed here for us, is available to all of us all the time. Just like the law of electricity is available to all of us all the time.
It does not judge whether we deserve to turn on our light switch or not. If we connect to the laws of electricity, we have light from our light switch.
The same is true with the universal law of vibration and attraction. These laws are not judging our worthiness. We always receive the match to the frequency we are emitting.
This means if we emit a signal of love and gratitude, we receive love and gratitude.
If we emit a signal of lack and selfishness, we receive lack and selfishness.
Simply put, WE REAP WHAT WE SOW or AS A MAN THINKETH IN HIS HEART, SO IS HE.
Clue #2: Our vision is a compass that gives our lives direction. “No wind is favorable to the sailor who has no destination in mind.”
It does not matter how infinite our supply is in this amazing creation of life — if we do not have a vision, a direction for our lives, the supply is not doing us any good.
There is an abundance of anything you desire. Your having the desires of your heart is not stopping anyone else from acquiring what they desire. In fact, it is the opposite. The more joy and fulfillment you have in your life, the more you can pour that into others, so that others can acquire joy and fulfillment in their own lives.
Clue #3: If you are living by a vision of your future, you are no longer living by a memory of your past. You are living a freer, fuller expression of yourself. You are no longer a victim to circumstances. You are a creator.
I hope this points you in the direction of why your imagination is more important than knowledge.
Make it a great day!
