THOUGHTS ARE THINGS AND POWERFUL THINGS AT THAT

 

 

“MAN’S ONLY LIMITATION, within reason, LIES IN HIS DEVELOPMENT AND USE OF HIS IMAGINATION.

 

“SYNTHETIC IMAGINATION:—Through this faculty, one may arrange old concepts,

ideas, or plans into new combinations. This faculty creates nothing. It merely works

with the material of experience, education, and observation with which it is fed. It

is the faculty used most by the inventor, with the exception of the who draws upon

the creative imagination, when he cannot solve his problem through synthetic imagination.

 

“CREATIVE IMAGINATION:—Through the faculty of creative imagination, the finite

mind of man has direct communication with Infinite Intelligence. It is the faculty

through which “hunches” and “inspirations” are received. It is by this faculty that

all basic, or new ideas are handed over to man.

 

“[Creative Imagination] 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 alert, more receptive to vibrations…in proportion

to its development through USE.”

 

We can develop our IMAGINATION, through use.  As we use and develop our

imagination, ideas will come to us that will lead to our success. It may be a hunch

that leads to something totally new such as the initial invention of the wheel

(CREATIVE IMAGINATION).  Or, it may be a new use for something that already

exists such as the many uses for the wheel like attached to a cart or automobile

it allows locomotion, or on its side it becomes a potter’s tool, or add teeth and it

becomes a gear, etc. (SYNTHETIC IMAGINATION).

 

Hill gives several examples of those using their imagination to create riches and

there are countless others not mentioned in this book.  Many, like the “Old Kettle”

example, are of one person using another’s invention in a way other than initially

intended.  Whichever happens, CREATIVE IMAGINATION or SYNTHETIC IMAGINATION,

as Hill says, “YOU CAN DO IT! IT HAS BEEN DONE BEFORE!

 

Thank You Linda & Michael Dlouhy for creating this IMAGINATION STATION

where we learn “HOW TO THINK NOT WHAT TO THINK”.  Thank You MasterMind

partners for contributing by writing, speaking up, and…just being there.  All of You

mean more than You know.

 

 

Eternally Grateful,

I AM the GATEKEEPER of my Subconscious Mind.  I must be on duty 24/7.

IT IS MY RESPONSIBILLITY AND MINE ALONE.
