Imagination is an indispensable ingredient for the advancement of life. God told Abraham that as much as he could see has been given to him (Genesis 13:15). Seeing with the eyes of the spirit (the mind). Only by faith can we see with the eyes of the spirit man. Remember, “…faith is the assurance (title deed, confirmation) of things hoped for (divinely guaranteed), and the evidence of things not seen [the conviction of their reality—faith comprehends as fact what cannot be experienced by the physical senses]” (Hebrews 11:1) (AMP).
The ability to imagine what you are wanting, rather than merely observing what is, is what takes you beyond. You are a physical being, but you are also much more. Whatever you can imagine, the universe can deliver, because you are a product of the universe. If you have the ability to imagine it, or even to think about it, the universe has the ability and the resources to deliver it fully unto you, for the universe is like a well-stocked kitchen with every ingredient imaginable at your disposal.
You have the ability to direct your own thought. You have the option of observing things as they are, or imagining them as you want them to be. Whichever option you choose, your thoughts produce a vibration within you that equals your point of attraction, and then circumstances and events line up to match the vibrations that you have chosen.
The little ones still remember how to harness the power of their imagination. They are still engaged in the utilization of their imagination – this is one of the things that keeps them so exhilarated. Your hands are tied in action, but your mind is not tied in imagination – and everything springs forth from the imagination. I mean everything!
Until Your Big Dream Feels So Familiar
Your ability to imagine will help the next logical steps come to you faster. Work the bugs out in your imagination. You don’t have to build little things and bigger things. You can do it all in your mind. We’re not talking about the next logical action step. Use your imagination until your big dream feels so familiar that the manifestation is the next logical step.
The Universe does not know or care whether the vibration that you’re offering is in response to something you are living right now, and observing, or in response to something you are imagining. In either case, the Universe accepts it as your point of attraction and matches it.
The imagination has been called “The Scissors of The Mind,” and it is ever cutting, cutting, day by day, the pictures man sees there, and sooner or later he meets his own creations in his outer world. To train the imagination successfully, man must understand the workings of his mind. Just like the Greeks: “Know Thyself.”
There are three aspects of the human mind: the subconscious, conscious and super conscious. The subconscious is simply power, without direction. It is like steam or electricity, and it does what it is directed to do; it has no power of induction. Whatever man feels deeply or imagines clearly, is impressed upon the subconscious mind, and carried out in minutest detail.
The God Mind Within
The conscious mind has been called the mortal, or carnal, mind. It is the human mind, and sees life as it appears to be. It sees death, disaster, sickness, poverty and limitation of every kind and it impresses upon the subconscious.
The super conscious mind is the God Mind within each man, and is the realm of perfect ideas. In it is the “perfect pattern” spoken of by Plato, The Divine Design; for there is a Divine Design for each person. “There is a place that you are to fill and no one else can fill, something you are to do, which no one else can do.” This is called the “You in you”.
Whenever you desire an answer to a distressing problem, a solution to any dilemma, or the resolution to any difficulty, practice solitude. What this amounts to is this: Do you trust the power of your Subconscious Mind, or do you think you can do better solely relying on your rational Conscious Mind If you are like me, it sounds too simple; but that is hardly reason to negate its wonderful benefits, and the insight that will be sent directly to you via the Super conscious Universal Mind. The Universe is busy organizing itself through the Universal Laws, and it is only the wisest of men and woman who will partake of this. And you can too.
