Part Eight - Page 2

  1. Imagination is the mighty instrument by which every discoverer, every inventor, opened the way from precedent to experience. Precedent said, It cannot be done; experience said, It is done.
  2. Imagination is a plastic power, moulding the things of sense into new forms and ideals.
  3. Imagination is the constructive form of thought which must precede every constructive form of action.
  4. A builder can build a structure only when they have first received the plans from the architect, and the architect must get them from their imagination.
  5. The Captain of Industry can build a giant corporation which may coordinate hundreds of smaller corporations and thousands of employees, and utilize millions of dollars of capital only when they have first created the entire work in their imagination. Objects in the material world are as clay in the potter's hand; it is in the Master Mind that the real things are created, and it is by the use of the imagination that the work is done. In order to cultivate the imagination it must be exercised. Exercise is necessary to cultivate mental muscle as well as physical muscle. It must be supplied with nourishment to grow.
  6. To clarify, Imagination is about things that are truly possible. Imagination is a form of mental concentration which may lead to mental success.
  7. Constructive imagination means mental labor, by some considered to be the easiest kind of labor, but, if so, it yields the greatest returns, for all the great things in life have come to people who had the capacity to think, to imagine, and to make their dreams come true.
  8. When you have become thoroughly conscious of the fact that Mind is the only creative principle, that it is Omnipotent, Omniscient and Omnipresent, and that you can consciously come into harmony with this Omnipotence through your power of thought, you will have taken a long step in the right direction.
