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

Yes. we deprive ourselves of the greatest power of the Universe that we have inherited from the Universe. 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. It is a comfortable proposition. Is this the way we want to live and then die? Of course not! Master Key To Imagination ‐ www. live in our imagination. Any new movies we make must follow the same pattern and the same ideas as the old ones. The choice is ours. For what? We really do not know. We can make it a romantic comedy or a horror movie. It is safe and comfortable to replay the old movies of our lives and create endless sequels and carry on. 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 . Now. what to imagine regardless of our present state of our circumstances. Do we really have a choice of what kind of imagining we are going to do? The answer is yes and no. some of us have developed tendencies to live each new day the same as yesterday. As long as our imagination is under the control of our is just being comfortable. Some of us consider imagination an impractical faculty. and even change the circumstances if we want to by imagining it. The reference number in this case is the reference in the memory bank of our mind. 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 heart. 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. 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. or do. and manifest fun and plenty. That is why we live in the same kind of environment every day and we have gotten used to 6    . Imagination is our ability to make movies in our mind and play them. we can imagine what we want to imagine if only we gain control over our own mind and know how to imagine. and then replay them over and over again. or have what we cannot imagine. What usually happens is that the mind sensors imagination like a sensor board and says "Not allowed" or "It cannot be projected". We cannot live or be. Enjoy it or dread it as the case may be. In fact. 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. It is as simple and as plain as that.Practical Spirituality Guide For Everyday Life In essence.divinemind.

Knowledge Limits. while imagination embraces the entire world. Imagination is the power of the artist with which he creates art and then scientists come along and explain how that art was created. Then it explains what knowledge is. the whole Universe. However. Knowledge is our past. To corroborate Dr. What we imagine. means . which the artist has imagined.

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.the great artist.divinemind.Albert Einstein. So let's begin to take back control of our life and our destiny. That is why the creator of this Universe is often called . the greatest scientist who changed Newtonian principles . Science is the knowledge. Here is what he said about imagination: "Imagination is more important than knowledge. Einstein’s saying we would have to go back to the Sanskrit texts thousands of years ago where it says "Gyana habandha"." In essence what is he saying? He said exactly what most people do not believe in . Einstein said that imagination is more important than knowledge. while imagination embraces the entire world and ALL there ever will be to know and understand. he is a thinker. 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 is important but it also hinders progress. This is why it is important to empower our life with the greatest faculty that we have been given . That is why Dr. which is common knowledge now. Imagination is the source of knowledge. Our previous knowledge would not have permitted us to think of the internet. He is more than a great scientist.Practical Spirituality Guide For Everyday Life This is why we seek success. This imagination will be ours today and for eternity. imagination is our future. However. his statement proclaims exactly the opposite. What have people spoken about imagination? One of the excellent references is one of the greatest men that ever lived in modern times. as it is limited to what we now know and understand.we think knowledge is more important than imagination. and manifest now becomes knowledge later. That is why we play the old movies of our imagination over and over again. as that is the region of science. Let's study 7    .

We imagine loving. It is in our guts or our abdomen where our abdominal brain is located. In the darkness of the cave it engaged in deep meditation to see the vision of the ocean. He was 8    . We usually use intuition if we do not see any other practical solutions. we intuitively know what we are saying. he could only calculate and he was very good at it . The intellect does not have emotions and living at the Spock’s like existence has become our habit. we imagine and the source of imagination is intuition. this imagination-the river. It flows onwards growing food.divinemind. Fish grows in it. Intuition is the dark cave from which the river is waiting to break free to merge with the ocean. bathe in it. When the river passes by. it immediately raises doubts in your mind. Loving is bestowing happiness on others. The cave from which the river flows in the dark regions of the mountains is the source of the river. We cannot separate the water of the river from the water of the ocean when it merges with the ocean. Its entire purpose is to bestow happiness to everything that it passes by. Intuition is not paranormal. Animals come to it. First. Intuition means inner tuition. and drink in it. However. On its path through hills and valleys and plains it nourishes the land. which regulates. at this point we must know what intuition is because we want to know the source of imagination. doesn’t it? Most of us define intuition as the reason for the paranormal. building towns and cities but taking nothing for itself. People come and thrive because they have the river.becomes the ocean. runs. Even when we say "I have a gut feeling". It is not gut feelings. It is definitely all that to those who do not recognize intuition. teachings from within. I know. However. When it reaches the ocean.he had no emotions. the moment I mention the word intuition. We see intuition as gut feelings that cannot be relied upon. 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. Master Key To Imagination ‐ www. Spock. That is pure imagination. Imagination is the beginning of visions. he could not laugh. The goal is to merge back into the great life after having traveled through plains and mountains and valleys. It flows out in a trickle and flows out for what? To offer itself to the ocean of life. It is a bit confusing but we must get a clear understanding of the intuition to know the source of imagination.Practical Spirituality Guide For Everyday Life If you ever watched TV series “Star Trek” you would remember a character called Mr. it gives and gives but it is not attached to anything. and drives all the involuntary actions of our body. we have to believe in our imagination.

Intuition is the voice of consciousness. 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. There it is . to play and to laugh. This voice wants to frolic. Paul. Solomon a few thousand years ago said "Trust in God with all thine heart and lean not upon thine own understanding". nor could you read this very text. We think we have imagination but we do not permit ourselves to imagine. This voice calls us to action to bring us back home to the ocean. listen to our intuition. Master Key To Imagination ‐ www.Practical Spirituality Guide For Everyday Life The food you are digesting now is being done by the abdominal brain. Isn't it a crazy idea for practical people? Intuition is gut feelings only because it has not been used. as the world would say. And to corroborate that fact. is foolishness with man. Every breath you are taking to live-you are not consciously aware of breathing. It is entropy. Intuition is our relief from that box. We need to loosen up. your inner teacher. and does millions of actions every second in your body. This voice takes us where we have never been before.the life of eating. how do we loosen up? By practice. and dreading with a few distractions. the voice and not the chatter of the mind that constantly tells us what we need and what we cannot do. It is the wisdom of the Universe and so it is the foolishness of the mind. You are not even conscious of those vital actions without which you would not even be able to live. Most of us suffer from intuition entropy.the wisdom of God.

So. and wants us to live a fantastic life. We are not familiar with intuition. who puts it very clearly. He said "The wisdom of God is foolishness with man". to love and to give. 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. a very astute man. We have to let loose our intuition. believe in the Universe. It is a life we really get ourselves in. This voice does not know limitations and this voice is madness to the mind. Listen to it. which digests the food. The mind has boxed us in and we are so uncomfortably comfortable with our life with no real imagination. That too is being done by your abdominal brain. We are stuck in the box of our mind. your intuition. Let me quote St. and regain our right to imagine out of the box. which we call pleasures. Then we can imagine from out of the 9    . sleeping.

tainted by conditions. we will hear clearly the calling of our consciousness for us to form the vision of our life from the core of our being. we would still be living in the dark ages. it says there are two kinds of thoughts. Conditioned thoughts are generated from the senses and are driven by the senses. and develop the ears to listen to intuition filtering out the chatters of our external world. so it can obey the commands of our consciousness. to feel what we have never felt before. Unconditioned thought naturally arises. our divinity.Practical Spirituality Guide For Everyday Life You see. It is conditioned thought which the Ancients termed as impure thought. we watch TV. Most of the time when imagination comes out of our intuition it seems to be corrupted by our reasoning. This is a substitute for our frozen imaging faculty. 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 10    . Purity and Impurity in this context does not refer to morality and immorality. So. Two Kinds of Thought “In the Amritabindu Upanishad from the Vedic text. How do we let it out? By quieting the constant chatter of our mind and when we have done that. If the thought evolves out of conditions. Sometimes we really fail to imagine great things.divinemind. If he did not imagine what he had invented and discovered. Unconditioned thought and Conditioned thought. Literally translated. 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. we watch TV because we want to live with pictures that somebody else is showing us. Intuition is the source of imagination. which is the memory bank of our mind and its constant chatter. aching to come out in the form of our imagination. It defines the quality of thought. past and present. When there is nothing to do. it gives the meditations to conquer the fears that hold us back to imagine. The book also gives step by step instructions to liberate the mind from its dependency on the senses. it can only be conditioned thought. Deep down inside us is the urge to be someone or do something. Master Key To Imagination ‐ www. So we relegate that imagination to the area of fantasy and that is exactly what Albert Einstein stressed "Imagination is more important than knowledge". Finally.” When the mind is trained and our Consciousness is liberated from the senses. it reads as Pure thought and Impure thought. defined by the source of the thought.

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. Life is a river. the word ecstasy releases immediate rejection for our mind and tells us “Come off it. the whole world.divinemind. I know. You did not come into this existence to endure a living but to live in ecstasy. So why postpone it? If we have a tendency to postpone 11    . the river produces energy that powers cities. The book then gives the 3 steps towards manifestation of the vision and clearly explains how to do it. We have come here to celebrate life. 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 have to understand that we cannot even form a vision without first having imagination for 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. and it is scared of freedom. You will control your mind and you will control your life. factories. its home of limitations. Imagination is like a river. When we are told to imagine by our intuition our inner teacher tells us what to do. The mind does not want to agree with that. Master Key To Imagination ‐ www. imagination is our life. When we want to feel it we do not require anybody's permission to live a euphoric or an ecstatic life. and just do not overdo it”. We are not running away from our past. Our life is like a river. 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. and afterwards that we have come to live and to cherish. this year. We see before we do so. We know that we can be whatever we desire to be. It cannot flow backwards. We live on the leftover imaginations.Practical Spirituality Guide For Everyday Life The book gives the ultimate meditation. for its ecstasy is almost an unachievable goal. When we dam it and then release it. 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. The past is like a river. So let’s stop wasting our Sundays anymore by living in our Mondays. then I hear the bird in the cage. We have all the power to be whatever we want to be. Our life cannot flow backwards. Whenever we move to live to be happy we should not be on guard in case we get caught up in our past. Imagination is the first step to visioning. If you live it you will manifest it. Power yourself with imagination and live free. be satisfied with what you have got. We must power ourselves with liberated imagination to form a true vision for our life of what we want to be today. We can have whatever we want to have and we know it is our right to feel ecstatic.

We are constantly battling against our circumstances and visioning future apprehensions by becoming “Masters of worst case scenarios”.divinemind. Mind is simply our memory bank for already existing knowledge. "Imagination is more important than knowledge. and to do but we think about what we would like to avoid. for knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand. Isn't that what most of us do . Imagination is the power with which we create. Hard drive is the knowledge. We do have a powerful imagination but our imagination is out of control. This fire can also cremate the same body. Most of us do not consciously link what is happening outside us to what is taking place in our mind or inside us. we look back and see what we were thinking about. Occasionally. We cannot think about what we would like to be." Most people. Master Key To Imagination ‐ www. In the previous chapter we have discussed the relationship between knowledge and imagination as understood by Dr.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 greatest human faculty that we have been gifted with. 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. Albert Einstein. They do not realize that imagination is the progenitor of knowledge and Einstein said it clearly. we will not be able to create anything. to have. Let me repeat this.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. while imagination embraces the entire world and ALL there ever will be to know and understand. put knowledge before their imagination. This power is like fire. It can warm our body on a cold night. if not consciously but subconsciously.Practical Spirituality Guide For Everyday Life Formatting Imagination into a Vision .com 12    . "Imagination is more important that knowledge" he said. 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. Most of the time we do not even realize that we are in the worry mode. It has got all the memory. If we depend on our hard drive for all future work. It can cook a delicious dinner to nourish our senses and the body. What did Einstein say? I think everyone should burn it in their memory. We always have to be conscious of that.

Knowledge also shows us the value of imagination in our life. Knowledge limits and constricts our imagination. Now. We want to listen to it and our mind does not want us to do so. and manifested in our life good or bad. It is the meditations and proclamations that will discipline the mind to hold a vision. which speaks to us with a crystal clear voice that surfaces amidst the chatter of the mind. we cannot have an outside different than what is inside us. which is the absolute. we must meditate on the four proclamations over and over again. No amount of theory can train the mind. Knowledge will show us what we have imagined in the past. Knowledge guides us but cannot lead us. It does not come in order. Intuition is our inner tuition. We also know that knowledge is power. come to think of it.Practical Spirituality Guide For Everyday Life Knowledge is our past experiences. Then we order this imagination. the mind aborts imagination before it can be ordered into a vision. comes from our intuition.

I will give you some exercises to cultivate your power of imagination. 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. 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. We will learn to imagine and then order that chaotic imagination to turn into a vision. Imagination comes from all directions.divinemind. the four proclamations are given. Imagination.

Imagination flows out like a river from the cave of our intuition. To train the mind to prevent it from corrupting our imagination.

Man's purpose in life is to create and the basis of creation is imagination. and when we can control our inside. the power with which we create our vision. Corrupting our imagination into a fantasy.

That is what most people do. Then you can control your inside. In the heat of the summer day he had to go to town to buy seeds for his next crop. 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). The mind must be trained to completely rely on our consciousness. We also. for our use in the book. thoughts in pictures. Shortly. We have to train our mind and the training must be done through the system given by the Ancients.

This tree is your consciousness. do not know what they want. is for worry. Before you can vision. the same power that created this magnificent Universe. He was still sitting under the wish fulfilling tree. go on vacation or having a soul mate. Imagination is more important than knowledge. It is because they have no answer. 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. To make a list of what you want. If we imagine at all. It will only fulfill them instantly. if used at all. We must train our mind not to fall for that. If you ask them "What do you want?". Most people's faculty to imagine has been atrophied and has gone stiffed. a new automobile. 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. That is the first thing that we have to accomplish.

You need to understand several points discussed below. he got worried a lot. you must have imagined what you want. We move and have our being under the wish fulfilling tree. he got a little worried.

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.”

You have to remind yourself who you are and the four proclamations proclaim who you are in the book. This is which comes from the absolute. The whole caterpillar becomes like a pig soup. It drinks the nectar of the flowers the same way when you start imagining from your consciousness. the caterpillar gets scared of itself. Then one day it stops and from its own body it creates a cocoon that surrounds itself. all those visions have been transcended. which futuristic writers call science fiction. like guck inside the cocoon. it can only drink. those cells are scientifically called imaginal cells. So. from the inner teacher. Individual is a nation into 20    . See. it creates a cocoon and then creates imaginal cells. The Ancients knew about this. we have to have a vision of having no vision.

This is very well expressed in the nature of metamorphosis of the caterpillar. from your intuition. We cannot even get in the car without a vision of where we are going. we need the substance and the circumstances to form a vision. which becomes a butterfly. he was wise. The problem in forming the new vision is the lack of belief that you create from no-thing. This caterpillar metamorphosis is changed into a butterfly created out of the guck from the imaginal cells. slowly changed into the “new” you. Keep on it assiduously and all of a sudden you will see the “old” you that you hang on to so closely and that gives you all the pains. It eats more than its body weight throughout the day.

All the knowledge we have and all the education we have becomes a load if we do not jump off the boat. we have not crossed the river. Remind yourself that all the time. Vision is a living entity.

That is why we need a vision. Not long ago we would be called mad if we said that this is what we have in mind. The individual is a spark. You have to know who is visioning. Keep your vision and imagination sessions private. who is designing. by all means discuss it! Otherwise. they will say that they are stuck there. Since in the previous chapter we have touched a little bit on the aspect of privacy regarding imagination sessions. It is our memory bank. That is why it should be kept private. You never know where this infection is coming from. which we call mind. Infection will not come from people you do not trust. the same aspirations as you do. and the Universe is the blaze.

It can have a tendency to destroy your vision or bring in doubts. they can infect your vision with doubt. Do not let the mind answer it. The spark can create the same blaze you can. There is a difference between a goal and a vision. Now scientists say that matter is not a thing. Matter has dissolved into mystery. Science does not know today what matter is.

“See the harvest already white”. for they are white already to harvest". He told his disciples. It has been completed in our mind. that is an intellectual impossibility. it is not time bound.Practical Spirituality Guide For Everyday Life We see the whole game in its entirety being played out by us. For example. He used a metaphor that boggles the intellect.divinemind. That means a vision is being it and then holding the vision. Lift up your eyes.

When we vision that our assignment has been done. Imagination is the eye of consciousness. A vision cannot be locked in time and space but the manifestation of the vision must be in the three dimensional world and has to be locked in time and space. It takes four months for the harvest to be produced. 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. Conditions are time bound. in the allocated time. we have already seen it being done. The Master knows the conditions are fulfilled. At that time it is a contradiction in terms when we vision it. We only see ourselves winning the game and laying on the ice or grass exhausted and victorious. You experience fear of the vision of not having a job long before it happens. then we will see the Universe getting to work to synchronize everything for us to finish our assignment in “by when” time. Just like the worry. I say onto you. When we vision the assignment. Lift up your eyes. A goal of completing an assignment has to have a time of completion. In the book there is one beautiful example. The words are be and hold. with pristine clarity drew a picture of visioning and seeing the vision already fulfilled without depending on any conditions. The goals are the components of our vision and that is the manifestation of our vision. "Say not ye. and then cometh harvest? behold. The Master takes this natural phenomenon on farming and any farmer knows that this is time bound. it says: The Great Master. Now.

The eyes are extension of our vision. we have to focus on how to get the desired end results and we have to start with the end results first. He did not want to go through the Cape of Good Hope though Africa. Italy. The ancient wisdom of Solomon reconfirms the same: “As a man thinketh in his heart. just like our glasses are extension of our vision. and what audios they hear. He tells his listeners to see the harvest at the same time as they see this land. if you go back to page 32. which means vision. so you never do anything. Then again. We have to focus on the end results we want to see. He did not consider himself how. what videos they see. which was Vasco de Gama’s way. Most people see the end results on the basis of what they can see. when ye pray". He was looking for India not through the Cape of Good Hope. You see it being done and it is done. “believe that ye receive them. all the teachers of the Ancients taught us this. and all the other requirements are fulfilled.

If we break the TV we would not see it there. we are watching people raising their hand in China and we see them in that very moment like today. the weather. such as irrigation. I refer to this because people in the western world can recognize this more. Everyone knows that it takes four months for the crop to grow provided all conditions of cultivation. It was a dangerous path. When Columbus was looking for the route to India from the west he saw the end result of going to India. Master Key To Imagination ‐ www. How to get to desire and result? Can it be possible to not need to focus on the how and still trust that the desired outcome will happen? That is the question that is in most people's mind no matter what book they read. he tells the disciples "Therefore I say unto you.

which comes from the part of our consciousness that says anything is possible. knowing that your consciousness is the creator. The required scenarios will appear not by magic but by holding the vision. You have to handle all the problems as they come. how can it be possible not to focus on the how and still trust the desired outcome will happen? If you live in the vision all the required scenarios will come not from your past 26    . that when he reached America. So. Your consciousness is the creator. If your consciousness is the creator it will create the desired results. what do we do? We hit it with reasoning. All metamorphose accompanies destruction of the old. Imagination comes from our intuition. “Success is being able to hold a vision without faking it. the change will take place. Now. holding no doubt and believing that you will have it because this is how the Universe is made. This is our conditioning and it will take some time. it will not be easy but what else can you do but practice? Practice. Otherwise. There are two kinds of reasoning: o The first kind is the higher reasoning. but from seeing things that you have never seen before. It is a vision of failure. It will be like that caterpillar fighting its own imaginal cells and we will see the metamorphosis. and practice. which comes from the past experience and present conditions. Assiduous practice of the worst case scenario on the other hand is imagination by itself.Practical Spirituality Guide For Everyday Life He knew there was a way and he saw the end vision so much so. he called the place India.” Master Key To Imagination ‐ www. o The other reasoning is the lower reasoning. you start again. Then.divinemind. that requires assiduous practice. practice. The only way to overcome the lower reasoning is through assiduous practice. Success is not having money. Hold a vision. It will take practice like meditation to break through. which is still called West Indies. My consciousness is the creator. or the Indies. you will be living in perpetual doom and gloom. Assiduous practice means if you are not successful the first time. What we have to do is to vision the best case scenario. The visible world is sustained by the invisible. He had a vision.

Practical Spirituality Guide For Everyday Life Why Can’t We Hold A Vision And Manifest It? Time on itself is very meaningless as it is simply a tool that we use. is the greater conqueror” –Gautama Buddha. Now. Your reality is your creation and consciousness creates everything out of no-thing. In the Copenhagen interpretation it says "Consciousness creates reality". Then why can't we hold a vision and manifest a vision? What do we mean by no-thing? This is what it is. Everything is real in the dream yet our body is lying in bed. in a dream we bump against another car and we have a car accident. We get hurt. In a dream we live amidst solidity. he. Consciousness creates reality. or the solid thing that we may be standing on. “If one man conquers in battle a thousand men a thousand times. This is so important. consciousness is the creator. You must embrace this statement in your heart if you want to be successful. It takes assiduous practice to conquer the aspect of time before our vision and. We know it is not solid. most importantly. For instance. say the chair. he. the belief can materialize in the three-dimensional form out of no-thing. Reality is observer created. Then we have to ask: why don't we create things we want to create? We know that we create by visioning. We cry. We know that it is particles that are reduced to waves and vibrations and they are moving. and if another conquers himself. These proclamations are not mantras. We bleed. What do we mean by substance? That is the question that we have to stop and ask. we know today that matter is no-thing. why are we so hung up on time and why can't we hold a vision and manifest a vision? “If one man conquers in battle a thousand men a thousand times. When we ask science what is matter. Matter is not a thing. It is one of the four proclamations in the book. they say we are stuck there. Master Key To Imagination ‐ www. is the greater conqueror”. Let me repeat this. the floor…. This something that we are sitting on.divinemind. the latter. We wake up from the sleep and say "I had a dream". They are the proclamations of who you are. It is ridiculous because we can touch it and we can feel it. Science today has come to the conclusion that consciousness creates reality. and if another conquers himself. So. The question is: how do you know that was not real and the waking up is a dream? We don't. the latter. Consciousness is the creator. We are now relying on circumstances and on our present conditions. The mind cannot believe that the vision can physically materialize out of 27    .

In the book it says very clearly "Nothing affects us more than our mind”. We rely too much on our intellect. 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. Intellect comes from two words intel and legere. Thought is imagination.divinemind. That is what we call a materialist. we will be called insane. If that is the case. then we have mastered our circumstances. and not the money they want in their imagination. We have to understand this. Our consciousness creates substance. why can't we hold a vision and manifest a vision? Because we cannot believe in it. That is a hard thing to do when we are not used to it. Our entire dependence is on matter. is the true secret of success. depends on conditions. If we cannot depend on the vision to get we what we want. so we are. money they have. Is that real? Is that rush that is coming through your body real? So why can't it be for the good things you want? Because the belief is not there. To train the mind to know the truth that consciousness creates everything out of no-thing. taught us that as we think. All the Masters who taught us. We cannot hold on to a vision that we cannot believe in. Chemical changes take place in your body just by imagining what you do not want. and fever. stomach ache. that everything is made of and made with consciousness. which are processed through our mind. How often do you get sick just imagining fear that has never happened. The whole purpose is to control our thoughts and to hold our thoughts. Sub means below and stance means what we stand on. I do not believe it but our mind's eye is seeing it. circumstances. Our thought is our imagination. Your imagination is the eye of your 28    . That is a hard one to accept because we are all in the "show me" state of mind. A vision can only be a vision if our mind agrees to believe it. then there is no release anywhere. If we do that. That means if I do not see it. We cannot concentrate on a lie. What is substance anyway? It comes from the two Latin words sub and stance. Let's stop for a moment and ask ourselves. like fear of heights or death? That fear is so real that you get eruptions in the body. If we can depend on the riches that our vision holds. one who depends on pre-existing materials. which means to choose between this and that. That is why we cannot hold it.Practical Spirituality Guide For Everyday Life Our mind truly cannot believe this. then we will be buffeted by circumstances the rest of our life.

We say “As the Universe. It will not allow any thought to enter your heart and your consciousness if it does not find an identification point. The body.

We have hired the taxi. it does not mean a thing if we do not have control over our mind. where your consciousness wants to go. this metaphor that is given in the book from Upanishads says "Our individuality is made up of consciousness.
