CHAPTER 6 IMAGINATION:
THE WORKSHOP OF THE MIND

“Ideas are intangible forces, but they have more power
than the physical brains that give birth to them. They 
have the power to live on, after thebrain that creates
them has returned to dust.”

It was 9:56pm when I saw that it was really happening.
There were those who written of such an event for over 100
years. It had been a dream that one national leader put into
the minds of a nation just a few years ago. How could this
be really, really, really happenings?

This fantastic, epic event happened on July 20, 1969 when
I was watching as Neil Armstrong planted his feet on the
moon. I still feel the excitement, pride, and joy felt by all
Americans and I dare say, much of the whole Earth. This was
not the dream of one man, but 1000’s upon 1000’s going back
100’s of years.

It was in the imagination of a mind which lived from 1828-1905.
This man wrote, “Science, my lad, is made up of mistakes, but
they are mistakes which it is useful to make, because they lead
little by little to the truth.” He was Jules Verne, whom history
considered just a writer, a fantasize writer too boot, but look
where his fantasies lead. Look at those whose IMAGINATION were
ignited to actually putting men on the moon some 100 years later.

Hill defines imagination as the workshop where all plans are created
by man. “MAN’S ONLY LIMITATION, within reason, LIES IN HIS DEVELOPMENT
ANDUSE OF HIS IMAGINATION."

It must be remembered we were all created with an unlimited imagination
which God intend for us to use to better ourselves and others. The nasty
truth is that many have had the switch to this imagination turned off by
family members, teachers, friends, religious leaders, and others,
including themselves.

We are called to use that implanted natural ability.  Again Hill writes,
“Both the synthetic (building upon an existing idea) and creative faculties
(a new inspiration) of imagination become more alert with use, just as any
muscle or organ of the body develops through use.”

I have felt a keen vibration coming at an exceedingly rapid vibration
flowing from the mind of those writing lessons, speaking up on the calls
and mentoring with a servant’s heart here on MFF.

My desire to be a professional network marketer has been stirred, ignited
and energized as never before. I understand even more what Hill meant by,
“When you begin with the thought impulse, DESIRE, to accumulate money, you
are drafting into your service the same “stuff” that Nature used in creating
this earth, and every material form in the universe, including the body and
brain in which the thought impulses function.”

I can use the very source that create this earth, God. He said, “Ask and it
will be given. Knock and will be opened. Seek and you will find.” (Matthew7:7)

Thanks to Michael, Linda and the MFF team for when I came seeking, asking,
and knocking you opened the door.
