Chapter 6 Imagination
THE WORKSHOP OF THE MINDThe Fifth Step toward Riches
The imagination is literally the workshop wherein are fashioned all plans created by man. The impulse, the DESIRE, is given shape, form, and ACTION through the aid of the imaginative faculty of the mind.
It has been said that man can create anything which he can imagine.
Imagination helps us transmute our desires into it;s physical wquivelent. there are two types of imagination synthetic Imagination and Creative Imagination. WHile the moat used synthetic Imagination cannot creat. A young man gathers some items and puts them togeter in a way that had never been thought of. He used his Synthectic imagination and what was produced was an innovation. He saw things aleady in existence and rearrange them into something differeint that is not a creation.
Creative Imagination starts when an idea an impulse, thought or an inspiration id given to us by the ether. imagination helps us boild a clear picture for ourselves and for infinite Intellegenvce of what we desire. Imagination give us definite plans from Infinate Knowledge and it is the imagination that give compelling desire to carry out the plan immediately and what we need and desire will be brought to us.
Several years ago as I was driving I was low on gas and coul not afford to get side tracked or I'd run out of gas, the needle was on 'E'. As I was drivinging I was praying that I don't know how but God I need some gas. I continued to drive and I notice a man with a shirt and tie and black pants walking in the grass on the side of the road( there were no sidewalks in this area) and i hear he ran out of gas pick him up and help heim. and So I did. I took him to a local gas station where he secured a gas can and filled the containter with gas. now I was looking at my gas needle below empty now and a thought to ask the guy to help me out with some gas, the words came, "ye shall lend and never borrow".
I kept repeating that sentence as the man got his gas. I imagined and believed that God would meet my need some kind of way. I imagined that God might touch this man's heart to be kind toward me. When I restarted my car the gas needle went up to an eight of a tank! Mind you it was below yhe empty mark by this time. I drove him back to his vehicle and he poured the gas into his car. He told me to follow him back to the gas station. He pumped five dollars worth of gas into my vehicle! Now I had nearly a quarter of a tank of gas!
My plan was to believe God and not ask for anything, but trust and believe.
