Imagination is energy; it is creativity to a limitless degree and comes from the Feminine energy within each and everyone of us, men and women.
Throughout time, those luminaries who accelerated our evolution – Pythagoras, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell, Isaac Newton, Albert Einstein, Henry Ford, Marie Curie, Richard Branson, they all tapped into the feminine energy of their unstoppable imagination to produce ground breaking concepts and new methods in technology, physics and chemistry that took the planet into new and exciting eras.
This is an available resource to every person on the planet; it is a powerful creative force and when we let out imagination flow we truly tap into it.
So why did Einstein say ‘imagination is more important than knowledge’? Knowledge versus imagination, Einstein reflects a deep-seated pattern in human thought. The ancient dichotomy between what is known and what is dreamt, intuition or sensing by instinct is found, in various forms, in every field of human intellectual endeavour, like the staunch conservative versus mystic interpretations of the world’s main religions and theologies through to the traditions of pragmatism and the fantastic in the visual arts.
Einstein favoured imagination because it was colourful, creative and more importantly, anti authoritarian. We often see that artists, visionaries and other free spirits have often claimed imagination as the elixir of life. Knowledge, by comparison, is that dull convention, firmly fixed in reality; it is the conservative black-and-white, logical, stable domain. It is the world of the ordinary scientist, conventional houses of knowledge and starched accountants.
You see, knowledge is the stable anchor, it’s there, it’s proven, not questioned, imagination however is the facilitator of change, it is freedom, there are no boundaries within our imagination, no restrictions to what ‘might be’.
Your imagination will be inspired by your intuition to create the structure for change in your reality. ‘For change to occur in a system there has to be action’, so let your imagination flow in the creation of your success.
