Seeing is not believing. People see much they don’t believe in. They don’t “notice” any of it, so for them it doesn’t functionally exist. Believing is seeing. The mind cannot tell the difference between the vividly imagined and the sensed. If you are rehearsing something in your head, that happens in the body the same way as if you literally did it.
When your intention and imagination are in conflict, can you guess which wins? Imagination, and this is a universal truth. Whatever you would choose to do, imagine doing it and keep imagining this until you succeed. Embrace inner nature, and stretch those “imaginary” limbs.

“Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine and at last you create what you will.” George Bernard Shaw (Irish literary Critic, Playwright and Essayist. 1856-1950)
Did anyone make up imagination? Who invented it? Who imagined it? I imagine imagination? No, but you have thoughts about imagination, which gets in the way of imagination. Imagination is only a word. Yes. It doesn’t even refer to a single thing. I guess, physically, if you can think, then you can imagine. The same chemicals are at work are they not? Actually, imagination is not chemical, and can be distorted by chemical issues. Imagination is the very structure of the brain itself. Everything you see, everything you sense in any way. Chemicals like narcotics, you mean? Yes, but includes… Seek More
Imagination goes deeper. All knowledge is imagination. The very field of philosophy that examines knowledge itself “ontology” is itself the practice of checking imagination for good syntax and nothing more. All scientific theories are imagination. They become principles when they seem consistent. Basically, when the process for reality checking holds up with them. Let’s look at involuntary imagination. Your mind will do these things without your permission, and will sometimes do them inappropriately if you have an illness. Your mind ignores things. It can do that because it has a general overlay of “the important things to know” about the… Seek More
What can we do with this world of imagination? Well, literally everything you do is something you imagine you do. It is literally all in your head, but what you can do is center in the middle of the processes you don’t control. The process of mind in your head is a rhythm, like your heart beat. Your senses, even your vision, has a pulse, and has its own automatic pattern or “circuit”. You can tell when that is in order or when it’s become drowned in psychological static. Same with your sense of sound. Your brain is always checking… Seek More
Now down to the use of all this imagination. Affinity. It’s another one of those natural mental processes. As is often said, “The heart wants what the heart wants.” The heart being the core of the mind. It’s much like a natural environment in the outer world, like a forest. When you are in harmony with this inner natural mind, the mind “likes” things. It isn’t obsessive, that’s a thought trait. It just flags things as “true” or supportive. This is the essence of individual or subjective truth. My mind liked that. Excellent. Trust that, and maybe free yourself from the obsessive… Seek More
The topic is imagination. Like my imagination that I have insights to offer others. It is tentative at best, to be honest. What is imagination? Hmm, having “the foggiest” would be imagination. Having the foggiest is what you get when your imagination is in conflict with your thinking, but do we have to do this thing we call imagine? We imagine a day in the morning, otherwise we wouldn’t get up. Your mind comes up with ideas, impulses and images, imagination in its most fundamental root. Do you have to direct this? We don’t have to, but it can get… Seek More
Perception is imagination. Awareness is not. Awareness is that center from which we can experience any aspect of your experience or being. It is also called the “observer” in some popular texts. Have my statements left much to the imagination? You can tell the quality of a statement because it will have “resonance” in your awareness. It will cause items of your experience to connect to it, and it will begin to integrate or “click” quite naturally. This process is described as “subconscious”, because the very real architecture of your brain has, at its root, patterns that we formed even… Seek More
If I can also imagine sensory stimuli, then what isn’t imagination? What needs clarifying is what is imagination. There are principles that present themselves to the imagination, but imagination itself is not a derivative phenomenon. It is the “fifth element”. Imagine if the four elements had no distinctions between them. If there was no way to tell fire from water? Imagination is not derived from outside forces, nor is it separated from them. Imagination is the space between states of being (states of matter and energy) and has a force all its own. I can selectively decide how much and… Seek More
I watched a really amazing study on a girl with schizophrenia. She hated, really hated, to be left alone. They do. New research is actually linking autism to psychotic disorders. They are opposites of each other, so just as there are ASD phenomenon, there are also PSD. (ASD= autism spectrum disorder, PSD = psychotic spectrum disorder) She had many, many, many of what others called her imaginary friends and if left alone they would tell her to hurt herself. It was very sad to see her that way, but for the most part she was accepting of her illness even… Seek More
The autistic has sympathy, but not empathy. The psychotic has empathy, but not sympathy. If you are injured, to my mind (the autistic) it’s the same thing as me being injured. It is “wrong” and must be addressed. For all intents and purposes, I am injured. For the psychotic, they can image what you’re feeling, but they can’t get out of their own feelings. As much as your pain might be bad, that can’t have any meaning for them because the fuzzy roaches are trying to eat their brain. This is how psychotics can mass murder. It is how mothers… Seek More
How do dreams relate to imagination? Dreams are the base line or “natural” imagination. They are the purest and potentially the most balanced form of imagination, and where your mind nature and heart nature can surface with the very least distortion. There are a lot of things I can’t “think” about. Sometimes my head gets a bit noisy because there are too many understandings triggered at the same time. I used to get in trouble at school for day dreaming and not paying attention to the lessons. Well, day dream now. Do it like you might do some important task… Seek More
