In between work items yesterday, I found myself watching a video on Youtube that claimed to be a new way to pray. a more effective way to pray. It wasn’t a long video and it featured someone being interviewed about this radical new discovery. The key to prayer is not asking for something because when you ask for something you simply confirm that it doesn’t exist in your reality. No, what you do is IMAGINE it already is.
This wasn’t an occultist or magician talking but it might as well have been. I recently wrote about imagination on my other blog. Imagination is the engine room of magic. Its the engine room of reality. It is the engine room of our very existence. It is imagination without any frontier that creates. It creates not just in terms of inventions and ideas but it creates in the plastic substrate on which reality is based and then manifests on the physical plane.
To digress a little, The Last Observer, carries this as a theme in that Stanley, our everyday hero, has an imagination of such intensity and value that black magicians are trying to recruit him and that imagination to alter reality. While this is just a novel, I wrote it for a reason and that was to share these ideas in a palatable way.
It is all coming together. People are waking to the fact that imagination creates reality. Magicians have known this for milenia. Physicists are having to accept it. Even street hustler’s have caught on and instead of selling snake oil and love potions they are out there selling ‘The Secret’. It’s no secret. It’s how things work.
So next time you pray, meditate or whatever it is you do. Imagine. Imagine so intently you are there already. See it, hear, smell it…… We can change this world for the better. It starts by imagining it better. It’s the new way to pray!
“Imagination is the eye of the soul.”
Joseph Joubert (1754-1824), French philosopher.
“I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.”
Albert Einstein (1879-1955), German mathematician and physicist.
“Man consists of body, mind and imagination. His body is faulty, his mind untrustworthy, but his imagination has made him remarkable.”
John Masefield (1874-1967), English writer.
