We build great cities, great businesses, great medical discoveries—all this is possible because of imagination. Albert Einstein is on record saying that imagination is more important than even knowledge. Because the secret is, if you put your mind into an idea that you want to achieve, with complete visualisation as if it is actually there, and if you can do that constantly using a technique by which it can be done, then believe it or not, sooner or later, it becomes a reality.
There are exceptions where it doesn’t. But, there are explanations why it doesn’t. But that is a different matter. For the time being, let us think only of that which is happening and not that which doesn’t happen.
The secret of the visualisation—creative thought—is to actually believe and visualise picture details of what one wants, as if it is already there. When this is done, the subconscious mind carries it to the higher level, which we could, at the risk of criticism, call the super-conscious mind.
The super-conscious mind responds by giving ideas to the brain to do what it should be doing to achieve what it wants to achieve. So, it is an ascension of one’s plans to a higher sphere and it is a descent of—well, you could call it blessing, or you could call it energies to the ordinary mind—so that it achieves what it normally could not have achieved.
“When the mind is open, and when there is the great desire to achieve something, then the channels for achieving it are opened.”
