I consider myself to be one who has a RICH imagination. Some would call me/it delusional.
Imagination is the ability of forming images and sensations when they are not perceived through sight, hearing, or other senses. I grew up with the Napoleon Hill saying that, ‘Whatever the mind of man can CONCEIVE and BELIEVE, he can ACHIEVE. Talk about imagining a little of everything- I did!
Imagination is a fundamental faculty through which people make sense of the world.
But the core and critical question is “makes sense to whom”? Unfortunately we have felt this need to return the favor to God. God created us in HER IMAGE and then we turned around created God is OUR IMAGE! Not good, not good at all. It’s great to create and form IMAGES (that’s one of the more FUN things we humanoids get to do); however, since we are CO-CREATORS it’s best that we check with our other half (of the whole).
You see, our SELF-IMAGE is just that……………IMAGE!
So, where’d you get that other than from the bowels of the culture that fed you? Too often we are content with the GOOD that we IMAGINE and thus miss the BETTER, or even the BEST that was possible because we didn’t seek counsel from the DIVINE within. Instead, we chose our own (“I”) IMAGES that came from the NATION within which conditioned us and not the Kingdom!
