"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." Albert Einstein
Robert Moss, dreamteacher and author, tells us in The Dreamer's Book of the Dead that "On the Other Side, thoughts are things, and imagination rules." He quotes Henry Corbin, the great French scholar of medieval Sufi philosophy and Persian mysticism, when speaking of what happens after the soul separates from the physical body: "All the soul's powers are assembled and concentrated in the sole faculty of active imagination."
And Moss reminds us, "How unfortunate that in physical life, we so often dismiss the imagination, just as we devalue dreams! We construct our reality unconsciously by projecting our feelings and thoughts about what is real and what is possible on the environment around us. During physical life, this colors our experience of everything. On the Other Side, it generates everything we experience."
Webster defines imagination as the act or power of forming mental images of what is not present.
What are you imaging (imagining) for your life in the physical world? - in the afterlife world?
Sylvia Browne, well-known psychic and author, has a spirit guide named Francine. In Life on the Other Side, Francine tells us to "picture the most beautiful thing you've ever seen and then multiply it by 100 - then you might be close to imagining the beauty and composition of the Other Side."
