Life and our reality is all about understanding the imagination and the creation of a mental picture, for ultimately, who controls the mental picture, controls the reality.
It can be a hard concept for most to understand, because people haven’t been taught and don’t understand how reality really works, their thought processes go, how can the picture in my head have an effect on the reality I am experiencing?
The Magic Of Believing – Claude Bristol
The Art of Mental Pictures
The following are just some of the gems from the chapter, The Art Of Mental Pictures from Claude Bristol’s book, The Magic Of Believing.
“When you employ your imagination properly, you see yourself doing a thing and you go ahead and do it. It’s the doing the thing that you have pictured to yourself that brings it into actual existence” “That the imagination is a much stronger force than will-power; when they are in conflict, the imagination always wins”
“Desire is the generating force of all human actions, and without it no one can get very far”
“You can’t keep your mind filled with negative thoughts or doubts if you have it filled with positive, powerful and creative thoughts”
“Repetition is the fundamental rhythm of all progress, the cadence of the universe”
“That whatever we fix our thoughts upon or steadily focus our imagination upon, that is what we attract”
“Whether we know it or not, we are all victims of suggestion, in many cases almost to the point of being hypnotised”
And over the years, I’ve found the best people for explaining things is song writers, and when one starts looking, one can see the concept about the power of the imagination everywhere.
The Rainbow Connection
So if one is sick of all the destruction, division and constant war and fighting in this world, then one must begin at the starting point of all possibilities and that is with the imagination and begin constructing another reality in one’s imagination first and then begin taking actions towards bringing about another physical reality, because for all of the above destruction to be happening, someone must be planting those ideas and thoughts into others heads.
Our true reality is in the imagination and the mental picture that we construct and our physical reality is just an extension of what we first can mentally see
