Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.
What a worldview Einstein held!
Now that I know the entire statement, I know why Einstein believed that imagination connects to future knowledge and understanding. What a wonderful thought. We can use our minds to visualize or tune into what can come into being.
When I write this type of process of what if this person did that in a scene. Leads to, what type of emotional or thought reaction comes from my character’s initial “what if?”
The more I live in the present,
the more ever-present mystery I see
As we make curiosity our guide, we dump assumptions, old beliefs, untried theories, and all ideas about how things should be. Not an easy task, is it? I believe that all people are born creative, curious, and open to life. The trick as Martha Graham, American Modern Dance pioneer, is that some of us only keep our creative powers a short time or become forced to abandon ourselves to survive.
The beauty comes as we examine and discard our limiting beliefs. Does that sound like a big challenge? To think for ourselves, to open to possibilities we never entertained, to extend our imaginations to embrace the world can be done. Perhaps it must be done by at least 3% of humanity to save our planet? Must it be done to save our species’ future?
Yet it does not matter what we think, as long as we take the lid off our limitations and ask a few essential questions.
Questions I asked myself when facing challenges & endings.
What is the purpose of a life?
How can I know my purpose?
What does LIFE want for me?
Is LIFE for me or against me?
What keeps me from living the life I dream?
Do you face life with hope? Do you like challenges? Do you keep an experimental mindset?
