Chapter 6: The workshop of the mind

The imagination is literally the workshop wherein are fashioned all plans created by man. The impulse,

the DESIRE, is given shape, form and ACTION through the aid of the imaginative faculty of the mind.

Man has discovered that his own brain is both a broadcasting, and a receiving station for the vibration

of thought, and he is beginning now to learn how to make practical use of this discovery.


The imaginative faculty functions in two forms. One known as “synthetic imagination” and the other as “creative imagination.”

Through the faculty of creative imagination, the finite mind of man has direct communication with Infinite Intelligence.

The creative imagination works automatically, in the manner described in subsequent pages. This faculty functions

ONLY when the conscious mind is vibrating at an exceedingly rapid rate. As for example, when the conscious mind is

stimulated through the emotion of a strong desire.

The creative faculty becomes more receptive to vibrations from the sources mentioned, in proportion to its development through USE.

Both the synthetic and the creative faculties of imagination become more alert with use.

Transformation of the intangible impulse, of DESIRE, into the tangible reality of MONEY, calls for the use of a plan, or plans.

These plans must be formed with the aid of the imagination, and mainly, with the synthetic faculty.

You can build a fortune through the aid of laws which are immutable, but, first, you must become familiar with these laws, and learn to USE them.

 Ideas are the beginning points of all fortunes. Ideas are products of the imagination.
