our imagination . Most of us live our Sundays in our Mondays imaging the work place and getting very tensed up. A thought without a vibrant image is a weak thought. What is imagination? Imagination is thought. Imagination is the source of vision. or carry on an intense discussion with someone sitting next to us while driving and yet we image changing lanes. dear inferior position? Master Key To Imagination ‐ www. like when we eat or drive a car. if not the most powerful faculty of the human psyche. and to become? That is what this chapter is all about and that is how you.the one we do not have confidence in or we really do not believe that it can happen. which is the substance of manifestation of the world we occupy and live in. We do not feel that image consciously. An image in action is called imagination. It feels that way because we have turned that particular action of ours into a habit. We seem to have lost our Sundays or holidays just by imaging what we have to do on Monday and that is imagination too. That is when we allocate imagination into the world of fantasy. Every thought has an image. Imagination dominates our lives. getting off on the right exit or getting off the highway. Where does imagination come from? What is the source of imagination that flows into our mind? Imagination is very powerful. We seem to have this huge ability to imagine what we dread more than what we would love to do and to have. also imaging the final destination we will be arriving at.divinemind. How do we relegate the most powerful faculty of all . Some things we do automatically and we feel that we did not image it before we did it. Why is that? How can we control this runaway imagination of dread and begin to control our imagination and imagine all the beautiful things we would want to do. to have. We do not believe our own thought and even collectively we hear people say "He was caught up in his world of imagination or he just lives in her own imaginary world and does not want to face reality”. It is very important to know what we mean by 5    .Practical Spirituality Guide For Everyday Life Powering Your World with Your Imagination   Every moment of our waking hour of our life we carry an image of something we see before we do.a “may be” thought. can and will empower your life.

Is this the way we want to live and then die? Of course not! Master Key To Imagination ‐ www. Imagination is our ability to make movies in our mind and play them. What usually happens is that the mind sensors imagination like a sensor board and says "Not allowed" or "It cannot be projected". we can imagine what we want to imagine if only we gain control over our own mind and know how to imagine. or do. if we do not have proper control of our mind then we will be replaying tragedies over and over again instead of playing comedies and romances. As long as our imagination is under the control of our mind. We have to realize this fact and accept it before we can take action to take back control of our lives and imagine what we want to imagine. Enjoy it or dread it as the case may be. Do we really have a choice of what kind of imagining we are going to do? The answer is yes and no. It is a comfortable proposition. or have what we cannot imagine. some of us have developed tendencies to live each new day the same as yesterday. It is safe and comfortable to replay the old movies of our lives and create endless sequels and carry on. and manifest fun and plenty. and even change the circumstances if we want to by imagining it.divinemind. Any new movies we make must follow the same pattern and the same ideas as the old ones. We stay small because we make our imagination an unimportant factor in our life. we are not allowed to imagine freely and we are only permitted to replay our old movies filed away in our memory bank. we deprive ourselves of the greatest power of the Universe that we have inherited from the Universe. Everybody wants to be happy but what happens is that we live a life of constant dread and overcoming the dread each day is not being happy . what to imagine regardless of our present state of our circumstances. and then replay them over and over again. For what? We really do not know. The reference number in this case is the reference in the memory bank of our mind. We can make it a romantic comedy or a horror 6    .Practical Spirituality Guide For Everyday Life In essence. live in our imagination. The reason why the mind rejects it is because the mind cannot find the reference number of the movie in its files and it does not allow it to be shown. Some of us consider imagination an impractical faculty. Imagination is images that we conjure up in our mind from our consciousness and the mind is supposed to play them on the screen of our is just being comfortable. We cannot live or be. That is why we live in the same kind of environment every day and we have gotten used to it. It is as simple and as plain as that. The choice is ours. Yes. In fact. Now.

This imagination will be ours today and for eternity." In essence what is he saying? He said exactly what most people do not believe in . What have people spoken about imagination? One of the excellent references is one of the greatest men that ever lived in modern times. Then it explains what knowledge is. Imagination is the power of the artist with which he creates art and then scientists come along and explain how that art was created. while imagination embraces the entire world and ALL there ever will be to know and understand.we think knowledge is more important than imagination. However. Let's study imagination. his statement proclaims exactly the opposite. while imagination embraces the entire world. which the artist has imagined. This is why it is important to empower our life with the greatest faculty that we have been given . vision. Einstein said that imagination is more important than knowledge. To corroborate Dr. imagination is our future. Einstein’s saying we would have to go back to the Sanskrit texts thousands of years ago where it says "Gyana habandha". Our previous knowledge would not have permitted us to think of the internet. as that is the region of science.divinemind. So let's begin to take back control of our life and our destiny. He is more than a great scientist.the great artist. means . Master Key To Imagination ‐ www. All of this may sound a bit mystical at this point to you but you will see a bit later how this piece of information will help you take back control of your imagination from the kludges of the hard herded mind that cannot laugh. and ALL there ever will be to know and understand. Here is what he said about imagination: "Imagination is more important than knowledge. and manifest now becomes knowledge later. which when translated. That is why 7    . he is a thinker. However. Knowledge is our past. That is why we play the old movies of our imagination over and over again. someone imagined internet and now we are able to share and distribute our thoughts with the speed of light around the entire globe thanks to imagination at work.Knowledge Limits.imagination. Knowledge is important but it also hinders progress.Albert Einstein. That is why the creator of this Universe is often called . the whole Universe. as it is limited to what we now know and understand. for knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand. the greatest scientist who changed Newtonian principles . Science is the knowledge. which is common knowledge now. What we imagine.Practical Spirituality Guide For Everyday Life This is why we seek success. Imagination is the source of knowledge.

it gives and gives but it is not attached to anything. we imagine and the source of imagination is intuition. It is in our guts or our abdomen where our abdominal brain is located. It is a bit confusing but we must get a clear understanding of the intuition to know the source of imagination. Master Key To Imagination ‐ www. When it reaches the ocean. this imagination-the river. Intuition means inner tuition. We usually use intuition if we do not see any other practical solutions. The cave from which the river flows in the dark regions of the mountains is the source of the river. he could not laugh. On its path through hills and valleys and plains it nourishes the land.he had no emotions. Intuition is the dark cave from which the river is waiting to break free to merge with the ocean.Practical Spirituality Guide For Everyday Life If you ever watched TV series “Star Trek” you would remember a character called Mr. In the darkness of the cave it engaged in deep meditation to see the vision of the 8    . building towns and cities but taking nothing for itself. It flows out in a trickle and flows out for what? To offer itself to the ocean of life. Loving is bestowing happiness on others. We imagine loving. doesn’t it? Most of us define intuition as the reason for the paranormal. Even when we say "I have a gut feeling". We see intuition as gut feelings that cannot be relied upon. The goal is to merge back into the great life after having traveled through plains and mountains and valleys.divinemind. Spock. teachings from within. Fish grows in it. I know. Its entire purpose is to bestow happiness to everything that it passes by. It is not gut feelings. at this point we must know what intuition is because we want to know the source of imagination. which regulates.

However.becomes the ocean. it immediately raises doubts in your mind. bathe in it. When the river comes out of that cave it rushes out with one single goal in mind-to merge with the ocean and to become the ocean. That is pure imagination. People come and thrive because they have the river. Intuition is not paranormal. runs. First. The intellect does not have emotions and living at the Spock’s like existence has become our habit. and drink in it. It flows onwards growing food. We cannot separate the water of the river from the water of the ocean when it merges with the ocean. It is definitely all that to those who do not recognize intuition. However. Animals come to it. he could only calculate and he was very good at it . we intuitively know what we are saying. the moment I mention the word intuition.

That too is being done by your abdominal brain. We have to let loose our intuition. He said "The wisdom of God is foolishness with man". Most of us suffer from intuition entropy. There it is . to love and to give. as the world would say. and does millions of actions every second in your body. We live day after day. So. Isn't it a crazy idea for practical people? Intuition is gut feelings only because it has not been used. It is entropy. and regain our right to imagine out of the box. And to corroborate that fact. your inner teacher. believe in the Universe. and wants us to live a fantastic life. Intuition is our relief from that box. just like if our arm is put in a cast for 4 or 5 weeks and when the cast is taken off we cannot use that arm easily right away. is foolishness with man. We are stuck in the box of our mind. to play and to laugh. Paul. Master Key To Imagination ‐ www. We are not familiar with intuition. which digests the food. a very astute man. realizes the enzymes.the wisdom of God. Intuition is the voice of 9    . Then we can imagine from out of the box. or the Universe. which we call pleasures. your intuition. The mind has boxed us in and we are so uncomfortably comfortable with our life with no real imagination. how do we loosen up? By practice. Every breath you are taking to live-you are not consciously aware of breathing. nor could you read this very text. You are not even conscious of those vital actions without which you would not even be able to live. This voice does not know limitations and this voice is madness to the mind. week after week making resolutions for New Years but do we really want to be happy? Are we willing to make the sacrifice to be happy? There is actually no real sacrifice. Let me quote St. listen to our intuition. It is a life we really get ourselves in. who puts it very clearly.divinemind. We think we have imagination but we do not permit ourselves to imagine. sleeping. Solomon a few thousand years ago said "Trust in God with all thine heart and lean not upon thine own understanding". We need to loosen up. Listen to it. really. This voice calls us to action to bring us back home to the ocean. the voice and not the chatter of the mind that constantly tells us what we need and what we cannot do. This voice wants to frolic.Practical Spirituality Guide For Everyday Life The food you are digesting now is being done by the abdominal brain.the life of eating. This voice takes us where we have never been before. It is the wisdom of the Universe and so it is the foolishness of the mind. the voice within with all your heart and do not lean upon your own understanding. and dreading with a few distractions.

Sometimes we really fail to imagine great things. so it can obey the commands of our consciousness. The book “Ancient Secrets of Success For Today’s World” clearly refers to higher reasoning and lower reasoning in the form of pure thought and impure though in chapter 10 (page 75) under the cross header. Finally.Practical Spirituality Guide For Everyday Life You see. aching to come out in the form of our imagination. Intuition is the source of imagination. So we relegate that imagination to the area of fantasy and that is exactly what Albert Einstein stressed "Imagination is more important than knowledge". If he did not imagine what he had invented and discovered. How do we let it out? By quieting the constant chatter of our mind and when we have done that. we would still be living in the dark ages. we will hear clearly the calling of our consciousness for us to form the vision of our life from the core of our being. Conditioned thoughts are generated from the senses and are driven by the senses. Two Kinds of Thought “In the Amritabindu Upanishad from the Vedic text. it reads as Pure thought and Impure thought. past and present. what we end up doing is we let the movie makers do our imagination for us and we pay $9 or $12 to see the movie because we cannot live without imagination. If the thought evolves out of conditions. it gives the meditations to conquer the fears that hold us back to imagine. which is the memory bank of our mind and its constant chatter. Most of the time when imagination comes out of our intuition it seems to be corrupted by our reasoning.divinemind. it says there are two kinds of thoughts. So. and develop the ears to listen to intuition filtering out the chatters of our external world. we watch TV because we want to live with pictures that somebody else is showing us. it can only be conditioned thought. our divinity. Unconditioned thought and Conditioned thought. Deep down inside us is the urge to be someone or do something. It defines the quality of thought. Purity and Impurity in this context does not refer to morality and immorality.” When the mind is trained and our Consciousness is liberated from the senses. The book also gives step by step instructions to liberate the mind from its dependency on the senses. This is a substitute for our frozen imaging faculty. Literally 10    . we watch TV. defined by the source of the thought. Master Key To Imagination ‐ www. to feel what we have never felt before. It is conditioned thought which the Ancients termed as impure thought. tainted by conditions. When there is nothing to do. Unconditioned thought naturally arises.

Master Key To Imagination ‐ www. We have all the power to be whatever we want to be. You will control your mind and you will control your life. The mind does not want to agree with that. Isn't it exactly what we have been discussing? The mind is like a bird that has been locked up in a cage for a long time where it is so comfortable in its confinement. imagination is our life. If you live it you will manifest it. We see before we do so. The book then gives the 3 steps towards manifestation of the vision and clearly explains how to do it. We must power ourselves with liberated imagination to form a true vision for our life of what we want to be today. the word ecstasy releases immediate rejection for our mind and tells us “Come off it. With the practice of meditations on the four proclamations given in the book and finally the ultimate meditation you will gain back your intuitive faculty and your imagination. this year. the river produces energy that powers cities. You did not come into this existence to endure a living but to live in ecstasy. It cannot flow backwards. This sort of feeling prevails in all of us when we engage ourselves in building a life of freedom. We have come into this world to experience what we have never experienced before. So why postpone it? If we have a tendency to postpone it. When we want to feel it we do not require anybody's permission to live a euphoric or an ecstatic life. for its ecstasy is almost an unachievable goal. Life is a river. That is the chatter of the mind and you should definitely make your mind understand that you are the Master of your mind and your imagination comes from the Universe. We know that we can be whatever we desire to be. Whenever we move to live to be happy we should not be on guard in case we get caught up in our past. We have come here to celebrate life. We are not running away from our past. I know. then I hear the bird in the cage. When we are told to imagine by our intuition our inner teacher tells us what to do. which will liberate the mind from the shackles of the senses and then you will be able to listen to your heart and create the vision for your life from the freedom of your imagination. So let’s stop wasting our Sundays anymore by living in our Mondays. Our life is like a river. the whole world. and just do not overdo it”. Our life cannot flow backwards. Power yourself with imagination and live free. factories. its home of limitations. We have to understand that we cannot even form a vision without first having imagination for it. Imagination is the first step to visioning. The past is like a river. We live on the leftover imaginations. and it is scared of freedom. and afterwards that we have come to live and to cherish.Practical Spirituality Guide For Everyday Life The book gives the ultimate meditation. Imagination is like a river. We can have whatever we want to have and we know it is our right to feel ecstatic. When we dam it and then release it. be satisfied with what you have 11    .

to have. Albert Einstein. If we depend on our hard drive for all future work. Master Key To Imagination ‐ www. Most of us do not consciously link what is happening outside us to what is taking place in our mind or inside us. It has got all the memory. He feels that he has lost control of his life because he cannot control his circumstances and all the activities that are taking place in his environment. He also knows that this world around him and the world that he has lost control of is really out of control because he cannot control what is happening inside. This power is like fire.envision worst case scenarios? Do we even vision the best case scenarios? What is happening inside people is nothing but a runaway imagination like a runaway transport truck down a steep slope on an icy road with no brakes. Imagination is the power with which we create. if not consciously but subconsciously. What did Einstein say? I think everyone should burn it in their memory.divinemind. We do have a powerful imagination but our imagination is out of control. Imagination is the greatest human faculty that we have been gifted with. Let me repeat this. for knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand. Hard drive is the knowledge. Most of the time we do not even realize that we are in the worry mode. and to do but we think about what we would like to avoid. "Imagination is more important that knowledge" he said.Practical Spirituality Guide For Everyday Life Formatting Imagination into a Vision . we look back and see what we were thinking about. "Imagination is more important than knowledge. put knowledge before their imagination." Most people. We always have to be conscious of that. We are constantly battling against our circumstances and visioning future apprehensions by becoming “Masters of worst case scenarios”. 12    . we will not be able to create anything. Isn't that what most of us do . We cannot think about what we would like to be. while imagination embraces the entire world and ALL there ever will be to know and understand. It can cook a delicious dinner to nourish our senses and the body.Part 1   There comes a time in a person's life when he sees that whatever is happening around him is going on inside him. In the previous chapter we have discussed the relationship between knowledge and imagination as understood by Dr. They do not realize that imagination is the progenitor of knowledge and Einstein said it clearly. Mind is simply our memory bank for already existing knowledge. This fire can also cremate the same body. It can warm our body on a cold night.

You can read all the books in the world and attend all the seminars in the world on the subject but if you do not train your mind through the proper way. Then we can create our vision. It will become forgotten.divinemind. When we realize that our outside will always be the same as our inside. No amount of theory can train the mind. Knowledge limits and constricts our imagination. To train the mind to prevent it from corrupting our imagination. Knowledge guides us but cannot lead us. knowledge is not power but the use of knowledge is power. when we realize that our outside will always be same as our inside. It transcends all knowledge. we must meditate on the four proclamations over and over again. and when we can control our inside. and manifested in our life good or bad. but reason to fit our imagination in its proper sequence and paint a vivid picture of what we see. It does not come in order. We must learn to imagine and control our imagination to control our life. It corrupts our imagination and tells us that it is a fantasy. put it in the right place where we use our higher reason. I will give you some exercises to cultivate your power of imagination.Practical Spirituality Guide For Everyday Life Knowledge is our past experiences. comes from our intuition. the mind aborts imagination before it can be ordered into a vision. To understand that. Knowledge will show us what we have imagined in the 13    . it will only remain with you as knowledge. I will repeat this to you again. the teacher within our consciousness. It is chaos. We will learn to imagine and then order that chaotic imagination to turn into a vision. Master Key To Imagination ‐ www. It helps you release your imagination to be creative. It is the meditations and proclamations that will discipline the mind to hold a vision. We also know that knowledge is power. only then we become successful. Imagination. the power with which we create our vision. We want to listen to it and our mind does not want us to do so. formed a vision of with that imagination. Corrupting our imagination into a fantasy. Now. not the reason that it is not practicable. Man's purpose in life is to create and the basis of creation is imagination. Cosmos means to set in order and harmony. We make the chaos into a cosmos. we cannot have an outside different than what is inside us. come to think of it. Then we order this imagination. which speaks to us with a crystal clear voice that surfaces amidst the chatter of the mind. Knowledge also shows us the value of imagination in our life. We know the consciousness creates and we know that all imagination flows from our consciousness. the four proclamations are given. Imagination comes from all directions. Imagination flows out like a river from the cave of our intuition. Intuition is our inner tuition. which is the absolute.

Then you can control your inside. There lived a farmer. It will submit to you and will listen to you. Also. To arrive at this state you need to practice assiduously. we must keep at it no matter how many times we have failed. He was all alone. thoughts in pictures. we all stumble. You will stumble.divinemind. We imagine all the time. In the heat of the summer day he had to go to town to buy seeds for his next crop. for our use in the book. then we have become successful. he thought "If only I could have a bed to take a nap". The following story . Half way to the town the farmer saw a beautiful tree with long and strong branches fulfilled with rich green leaves. He had to walk with a sun beating down on him to his heart. at the same time. after day. on our inside. We have to train our mind and the training must be done through the system given by the Ancients. After having the meal of his life. the mind will give up. a poor farmer.think about it. If we give up. It is like learning to walk. Imagination is the picture in motion.Practical Spirituality Guide For Everyday Life So. when we realize that our outside will always be same as our inside and when we can control our inside (controlling the inside can only be done by meditation on the four proclamations and the four steps of visioning). As he was dosing at the shade. All of us must have gone through this. Who has not stumbled? You must get up again and again and keep at it until you have trained your mind not to rely on external. The mind must be trained to completely rely on our consciousness. At the base of the tree trunk there was a pond and the shade. which is distilled for us. he saw a banquet before him. he thought “If I could have a cold glass of water it would be great”. He did not realize that he was sitting under the wish fulfilling tree. no family to help him to farm. after day. Our mind can make us imagine what we do not want to 14    . Ah. There was a small village far away from anywhere with no access road to the nearest town. just travel with me for a little bit in this story. which challenged the scorching sun. The farmer decided to rest there for a while. We also. resting at the base of the tree. what have we left? That is what most people do. We must not give up. Eventually. He had nobody. The following story is in the book but I am going to tell you this. we try to imagine what we do not want to imagine but we do imagine things around us. Also. Shortly. but first. he saw a refreshing glass of water before him and he thought "Wow!" He quenched his thirst and wished "If only I could have some sweets and some food". Think of this as your journey through life. Master Key To Imagination ‐ www. I will keep on doing this the way I am doing it day after day. Before he knew it. must be able to control our inside to think the thoughts we want to think.

a new automobile. Everything. I am going to give you a few exercises for imagination. He was still sitting under the wish fulfilling tree. go on vacation or having a soul mate. Step one. he wanted the most beautiful woman as his wife and plenty of children to help him on the farm and there he was surrounded by his family and wealth. The fulfillment of one wish led to larger and larger wishes. Imagination. If we imagine at all. is for 15    . Before you can vision. First. You have to make a list of what you want immediately. If there is an answer at all. We have stopped imagining. have a job promotion. Most people. he got worried a lot. As a matter of fact. however. which cannot be comprehended by our mind. It is because they have no answer. Right now. Imagination is more important than knowledge.Practical Spirituality Guide For Everyday Life He was lying on the most comfortable bed before he could even speak the thought completely. He immediately thought "If only I had a house to sleep in on this comfortable bed" and the house was there before he knew it. do not know what they want. These exercises are called imagination stimulation exercises. all circumstances and every condition in your life within the past or in the moment was brought to you by your thoughts on this wish fulfilling tree. a new condo or a house. I am going to give you some guidance on how to develop relationships. they get agitated with you. the same power that created this magnificent Universe. To make a list of what you want. You need to understand several points discussed below. we have to learn to imagine. let alone by our brains. It will only fulfill them instantly. He thought "What will happen if now a ferocious man eating tiger comes out of the jungle and eats me up?" A ferocious man eating tiger appeared and ate him up. we imagine what we do not want to or what we want to avoid because our imagination have not been used. It is individualized cosmic consciousness. he got a little worried. It will not judge the wishes. they will tell you what they do not want. This power works. Worry is imagination. That is the first thing that we have to accomplish. if used at all. We move and have our being under the wish fulfilling tree. Take a piece of paper and make a list of what you want immediately. If you ask them "What do you want?". When he saw what he got just by wishing. This tree is your consciousness. Master Key To Imagination ‐ www. Before he knew it. or family life.divinemind. Most people's faculty to imagine has been atrophied and has gone stiffed. We have to loosen up our capacity to imagine. Controlling imagination is secondary. you must have imagined what you want. We must train our mind not to fall for that.

Practical Spirituality Guide For Everyday Life Think of some other things like business or professional accomplishments whether you want to write a book, travel around the world, find romance in your life, help making your children successful and making them financially secure. Think about financial security for yourself, building self-esteem, or being a public speaker. There is the whole list of other things that you can think of. I just gave you these to actually stimulate the list that you can have. Mind you, I may have missed a lot but you must make a list of what you want immediately. Let's write down the points. We do not have to go into elaboration of each point right now. Step two. Pick one item you want each day from the list. You can have as many as you want. Do not restrict yourself. Do not let your mind stop you from making the list because at that specific moment it may feel like a fantasy to you. Do not fall into a trap of “I'll do it later” mentality. If you truly love yourself, you will do it. You will not do it for me or anybody else. You will do it for yourself. Make a list. Let your feelings loose and let go, let it happen. We cannot allow our imagination to be boxed in- in the dungeon of limitation of our past conditioning. Take a piece of paper and write it, write the list. Treat it as a game but do not fake it. We cannot concentrate on the lie. That is why the book was written to show you the truth that your imagination is the basis of all creation. Your imagination is the same imagination with which the Universe was created by the creator. The book tells you over and over again what the Ancients tell you “As the Macrocosm, so the Microcosm, and as the Microcosm, so the Macrocosm”. This way they tell you “As the Universe, so the Individual and as the Individual, so the Universe”. You are the spark and the Universe is the blaze. Each spark has the same power of combustion, the same ability as the blaze and it can also develop a blaze. So make a list. The sole purpose of this exercise is to loosen up your capacity to imagine. Step three. Every day without fail set aside five to ten minutes after your mediation on one of the proclamations. Never fail to meditate on the proclamations as it is explained in detail in the book. Take one of the items on your list and start imagining. Keep a notebook or a journal and a pen handy. Start imagining from anywhere, which means you do not have to imagine going on a vacation by beginning with a plane ride or a train ride, or buying a vacation package from a travel agency. If you want a luxury condo you do not have to start by buying it to start seeing yourself sitting in your study or living room entertaining guests and let your imagination fly all over the place. Your imagination must engage all of your five senses. You should be able to see everything in three dimensions and full color. You should be able to smell everything because everything has a smell. Master Key To Imagination ‐ 16   

Practical Spirituality Guide For Everyday Life A house has a smell, an automobile has a smell, even vacation has a smell. It is that salty air from the ocean or the smell in the Caribbean. It has a nice smell, smell it! You should be able to touch and feel what you want like a house or a relationship, or your children’s embrace, or your condo's floor, or walls, or rugs. You will be able to even taste the air in the condo or the vacation, or the automobile. You will hear the sound of the vacation or the waves of the ocean, the voice of your companion, the steps in your new condo, the sounds of your children’s voices, and the rustle of your soul mate’s clothes. Let your imagination create the raw footage of your movie that will be edited by you later to make the vision, which is ordering your imagination into a vision. Step four. Time your imagination sessions and if necessary set the alarm clock or set the timer. You must discipline your mind. If you feel that your imagination is not showing as you want it to do, do not stop it. Do not stop the session. Sit on that chair or wherever you are and say "I will stay here for the duration that I have allocated myself whether it will be 5 or 10 minutes". You will see that you disciplined yourself. Your mind will give up and then you will enjoy this reverie but do not go over your allocated period. If you say 5 minutes, keep it for 5 minutes. If you leave it, do not continue with it. Get up and go, and do whatever you have to do. You will see that it will be with you throughout the day and you will see how your imagination is losing up. Remember, your imagination has been atrophied or gone stiff out of misuse or nonuse rather. Do not go over your allocated period ever, even if you are enjoying the ride of your imagination. When the time is up, just get up and go about your daily work. Next, try to have imagination sessions during lunch time and then before your go to bed but every time after your meditation on the four proclamations or whichever one proclamation you are meditating on. This will absolutely give you control. It will give you control over your own mind. Remember, the mind makes you and the mind breaks you. Thus, the four proclamations will give you control over your mind. You will then get intuitive instruction and you will get ideas while you are having your imagination sessions. By the way, do not ever skip your imagination sessions. That is a date with yourself, date with your life. This is romancing with life. Even if it feels funny, just do it. Once you have done it for about a week, then you will understand the value of it. After you do that, make sure that whatever ideas come, you write them down. Make sure that you write them down without any delay. You will get lots of ideas, mundane or exciting. It does not matter. These ideas, however mundane or exciting they may be, write them down. I can assure you, you will not be able to remember them. Just write everything down in you journal as it comes and do not try to edit it.

Master Key To Imagination ‐ 17   

Practical Spirituality Guide For Everyday Life Do not try to modify it. Just write it down even with your eyes closed. Write it down, scribble it fast because while you are writing the mind will try to edit and modify it to soothe itself. Remember, you are loosening up your imaginative faculty. Just write what comes to you. Do not share the ideas or imagination sessions with anybody. It is for the benefit of those people who are around you, whom you love, for the benefit of whom you are doing it for. Silence is power. This exercise is called "Living in Reverie". A reverie is awaking dream. Awaking dream is a vision. Visionaries are the architects of the Universe. We have to learn to dream and live our dream. When we consciously choose to discipline ourselves to let our imaginal hair down and let ourselves go to the regions, the distant regions of imagination that we have never been before, we will have a blast. We loosen up, we lighten up, we turn into laugh and smile, and then we can dream the impossible dream. As the song goes in the South Pacific: "You have to have a dream. If you do not have a dream, How are you going to have a dream come true?” This is absolutely intuitive that you learn to imagine. This is such an important factor in your life. It does not matter whether you are a CEO of a company or you are running a family. All you have to do is vision but you cannot vision if you do not have imagination. People need hope and vision. A great leader cannot have his followers filled with anxiety. When we do not have a vision, that is when anxiety picks up. The whole idea is people have to be able to develop their vision and what they need is the power to vision. There is a section on imagination on page 48 in the book. In the third paragraph, it says: "To train the mind to believe that we create out of No-thing is our mission in life. We must face the trials, tribulations, and seeming challenges of our daily existence with the knowledge that we create from No-thing and we require no pre-existing materials to manifest our desires. The challenges that besiege us are gifts though they appear troublesome. Each time we overcome them we come closer to our real Self, our Consciousness, and come closer to the idea that Consciousness produces the circumstances and the materials required to meet and overcome the challenges. Each time we accomplish a Vision by creation, we become more aware of who we really are; we also become more confident in of our Divinity.”

Then one day it stops and from its own body it creates a cocoon that surrounds itself.

Since in the previous chapter we have touched a little bit on the aspect of privacy regarding imagination sessions. You should remember that. The mind prevents us from giving the input if it does not find it in its memory bank. they will say that they are stuck there. Science does not know what a thing is.

At that time it is a contradiction in terms when we vision it. That means you have to “be” it. The Master knows the conditions are fulfilled. He used a metaphor that boggles the intellect. We even vision that the goal that we are required to shoot to win the game is time bound because we have so many minutes to score the goal. not the physical eyes that you have. in the allocated time.

All the Masters who taught us. why can't we hold a vision and manifest a vision? Because we cannot believe in it. Your imagination is the eye of your consciousness. which are processed through our mind. one who depends on pre-existing materials. then we will be buffeted by circumstances the rest of our life. and not the money they want in their imagination. we will be called insane. then there is no release anywhere. In the book it says very clearly "Nothing affects us more than our mind”. If we cannot depend on the vision to get we what we want. Thought is imagination. Our entire dependence is on matter. We rely too much on our intellect. money they have. The reason we cannot hold on to a vision is because either we do not want it badly enough or we believe that visioning alone will not get for us what we want. That is a hard thing to do when we are not used to it. Sub means below and stance means what we stand on. That is a hard one to accept because we are all in the "show me" state of mind. Our thought is our imagination. If we do that. That means if I do not see it. like fear of heights or death?

Master Key To Imagination ‐ www. in the genesis of the Bible God said “Let there be light” and there was light but before that God created heaven and then the earth was formed. The earth was formed out of consciousness. there was no time there. Heaven is within us. That is how we relate our 24 hours. two monsters came out through the ears of the preserver. these monsters come out of the ears. One was too much and the other one was too little. then you are in heaven. Creation of the sun and the moon distinguishes time and space. There was no earth because there was no shore. When the world inside you matches the world outside you. The mind is continuously suffering either from too much or too little and wants to consume our consciousness and say that we cannot create. It destroyed the too much and too little. and that is what the first proclamation “Consciousness Is The Creator” is about in the book. as we know. the consciousness immediately went deep into meditation and asked the preserver "Help!”. Among the five senses. being void of those means the earth would not exist. At the same time as he was imagining the world was being created. in the Vedic cosmogeny one of the stories is that vision or the preserver of this Universe was laying in an ocean in a deep sleep. So. So. Similarly. pain and pleasure. There was no place that the animals could stay in. To take charge of our mind we have to take charge of too much and too little.Practical Spirituality Guide For Everyday Life It was for the vision of spirit that the earth was created. That is concentration and attention. That is how we relate our 365 days in a year. So. the creator. The intellect is those two monsters. What we hear we cannot resist. from his naval cord came out a lotus and on that lotus was sitting Brahman. to put it in the most modern language. Do not forget. How can anything be without form and void? We know heaven is our consciousness. Brahman meditated and then through the center of the eye came enlightened energy. which is consciousness. In the meantime. the vision of what we hold is already ours if we can hold it with patience on the turtle. He was lonely and he imaged. This is how we get rid of the two monsters that are preventing us from holding the vision and manifesting the 31    . what happens? Our life is regulated today by too much and too little.

We have to feel it and that is why there is a second proclamation in the book “Everything Is Consciousness”. I will have paid homage to my life. That is what we were born to accomplish and be victorious over.Practical Spirituality Guide For Everyday Life Consciousness cried out to energy of the preserver and from between his eyes came out the power of the Universe to combat these two monsters.

This power destroyed them. We live every day like yesterday. We will be caught up in the confusion of existence and existence will become a burden for us. that rule the mind.

I would like you to read this portion first… Awakening from the self imposed dream.

It needs to be on a short leash and handled by consciousness. We have to take charge of our mind before we can do it. It is loyal but it is not focused. The mind has a thousand eyes and it cannot stay focused. When the servant rules the Master we get an upside world. which is the very foundation of the mind. yet afraid to awaken. a life we are meant to live. The mind is like a dog. We do not care about anything else but our love. while we work. It is like falling in love with ourselves when we are madly passionately in love. the only thing we can think of is our love. not from our past experience. The mind thinks that it is all that there is and denies the power of consciousness. Our consciousness must take command and control of our mind. we go to sleep with a thought of our love. It is a revolt of the servant. the mind has a thousand eyes. nothing is going to be tough. The mind cannot see beyond this moment. It does not allow the consciousness to vision what it cannot understand. So. A deeper look at this analogy would be that the dog. We must release ourselves from this self imposed dream that surrounds us at this moment and form a vision of the reality that we truly desire.divinemind. We often ask ourselves “What if my vision will not manifest?" Our mind does not allow us to. It does not allow consciousness to vision what it cannot understand. The mind is the instrument through which we created our world. where is our vision coming from? Our vision must come from our heart. an intense urge to touch the ends of this Universe and know who we are in this dream of existence.Practical Spirituality Guide For Everyday Life We have a need.

The mind cannot see beyond this moment. nothing is going to be hard. afraid to leave our dream because we feel it to be our reality. Applying ancient secrets of success we can create a life of abundance and joy. The mind wants to take over and control our consciousness. We wake up with a thought of our love.

To help the struggling world. We live in the world that we have created with our thoughts. the ancient Masters created systems and practices for the individual to take control of the thinking process and as a result. As great King Solomon puts it: "We are what our thought is". It takes practice to learn how to think the thoughts we want to think. The Masters of antiquity knew that all limitations are in thought and all freedom is in thought. We cannot bring a thought that we want to bring into our mind unless we have consent or an agreement with our mind. The ancient Masters understood the plot of the struggling individual and realized that the individual cannot be greater than his or her thought.

This existence is the consciousness and is the Universe. The center of the circle projects the circumference. The mind does not understand the absolute. Art or Asi identifies that all is one.
