Your Imagination and Your Brain
We are designed to be co-creators in spite of all the robotic conditioning that is apparently prevalent in the world.

When I was eight years old, I attended a school in Manhattan where they felt it would be good for students to meet some of the great elders of the time.
One of those elders was Albert Einstein, and one day we were trotted across the river over to Princeton University to his house there. He had a lot of hair and was very sweet.
One of my smart-alecky classmates said to him: "Uh, Mr. Einstein, how can we get to be as smart as you?"
He said: "Read fairy tales," which made no sense to us at all.
So another smart-alecky kid said: "Mr. Einstein, how can we get to be smarter than you?"
He said: "Read more fairy tales!"
We of course didn't fully understand him at the time, but what he was actually encouraging us to do was to nurture and grow our imaginations.
He understood something that almost all highly creative and successful people do, that the imaginal realm is where the most potent ideas-the ones that can change your life or change the world-are held.
And the more you can nurture your imagination by diving into that imaginal realm, the more often that dive will inspire a stream of creativity when you resurface.
In this way, just as Einstein did, you will be tapping into a deep well of greater possibilities for co-creation with the Universe, and this state of co-creativity is where you can begin to engage your Quantum Powers."

"Even if they have a good imagination, the majority of human beings do not know what this faculty really is. True imagination, such as the initiates conceive it and with which they work, is a type of screen located at the boundary between the visible and invisible worlds. On this screen are reflected objects and entities that normally escape our consciousness. ..."
This inspires me to research Steiner regarding imagination.

1st a comment of Omraam's "Thought" in the above entry - Re: "a type of screen located at the boundary between the visible and invisible worlds" makes me think of "world-bridging" - a value shared by a friend and me.

What is experienced by imagination filters down through thought, feeling, and the body.
If imagination envisions every day in much the same way, the pathway through the other levels becomes well-worn and sluggish.
In a real sense, thought, feeling, and the body are waiting to take their cues from imagination.
We don’t ordinarily consider thoughts and feelings “bench players” waiting to be called into the game. But, in a sense, they are. They’re looking for inspiring direction from imagination—and if it isn’t there, they wait and linger and become discouraged. That discouragement then colors experience.
The prime question is: what do you want to create?
Finding an answer, in imagination, galvanizes you and changes all levels of emotional and physical experience. It turns the tide. ...
Comment: From reading this presentation (regarding the high place of importance for imagination in everyday life) I immediately recall my "church" lifetime and realize now that in that "lifetime" I was living most largely in accordance with my imagination of "Christ & The Church". The outer manifestations of other brothers and sisters, the meetings and everything else that made up my church life experience seemed to validate my imagination. How much of that phenomena was a genuine shared reality of "Christ & The Church" is really unknown to me. In any case I live by my own agreements that include a certain vigilance to not make any assumptions and in light of what I now see regarding imagination this agreement is all the more underscored for me! The one principal that I know that supports my efforts: "to not make any assumptions" is genuine communication and that means open dialogue with others.
