|Yes, I keep writing about imagination|
|Imagination is as natural and real as breathing. People who don’t know this or forget it come up against a brick wall. |
Some of them then go to booze and drugs, some to violence, some to despair, some to the straitjacket of a severely repetitive mechanical life, some to the dull, dull ground of passivity.
Life is not a machine. Humans are not machines, although they often play one day after day.
Humans are creative.
They can step on that, try to grind it into dust, make up a thousand excuses, but the fact remains.
Societies and civilizations are never creative, after a certain point in their development. They opt for standard shapes and standard patterns of thought and standard organizations.
This devolution isn’t just the “the strong controlling the weak.”
It’s a subconscious impulse that spreads like a disease. Throughout history, you see it manifest in many forms.
These days, we have the massive Surveillance State. It’s an expression of “the standard human who must think and act in certain ways.”
Imagination puts the lie to all this.
Imagination goes anywhere you want it to, and in the process, you discover ideas and realms and dimensions and power that would otherwise have remained invisible to the end of time.
This is the natural state of affairs.
Everything else is programming.
Programming comes in two forms: what is done to the individual, and what he does to himself.
Every spiritual system and spiritual teaching, down through history, has initially or eventually discarded imagination and thrown it on the junk-heap.
It’s long past the time to reverse that trend.
The creative power of the individual, which is the key to his future, his happiness, his freedom, flows from his imagination.
For this reason, over the last 20 years, I’ve developed hundreds of imagination exercises, about 50 of which are included in my collection, Exit From The Matrix.
