CHAPTER 6 IMAGINATION-THE
WORKSHOP OF THE MIND

“The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge
but imagination.”. Albert Einstein

Hills wrote, “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.”

I think the following  was a story told by Jim Rohn. Jim
was returning from England and decide to travel back
on the Concorde SST. On the same flight was Henry
Kissinger who was return from France. During the trip
back to New York they were excited being able to be on
the Concorde travel at more than speed of sound. Henry
observed that he had enjoyed breakfast in Paris, eat
lunch in London, and would be having dinner in New York
City. Just think less than 100 years before the same
trip would have taken weeks. Look what the imagination
of man had done.

The only limitation we have is in our development and
use of our imagination. How do we develop imagination?
First, see new way to use older ideas, concepts or plans,
synthetic imagination? I see this in Michael Dlouhy story
of moving the lift from the truck he had found and putting
it on his 40-foot trailer now having the ability to
self-load and unloading.

Second, reach out to Infinite Intelligence, through
vibrations to other minds, receiving “hunches” and
“inspirations” being handed over to our minds. I see
this in the examples of the Wright brothers, whose dream
of flight lead them to experiment with kites, to watch
the flight of various kinds of birds, and with the
creative imagination built from wood, cloth, wires and
cables the machine that put men into the air just 114
years ago this month, with the creative imagination others
enable men to travel well above the speed of sound.

“Both the synthetic and creative faculties of imagination
become more alert with use, just as any muscle or organ of
the body develops through use.” We are called to flex our
imagination though fanning our desire. How, with a faith
in what can be had, a definiteness of purpose, the creation
of a definite plan, and follow with definite and determined
actions.

Mentoring for Free has help me refocus on the real persons
within me, not that person other told me to be. There is a
true freedom in knowing what I can be. what I will be and
who I am. No longer to dwelling on what others think about
me, but what I think about me and who I am.

Many, many thanks to Linda and Michael Dlouhy in the creations
of Mentor for Free. My deep gratitude to Bob Shoaf stand with
me on this journey. Thanks for the support from the brilliance
shared by everyone on the calls. My heart is warmed by every
person who downloads the e-book and visit with me each week
on the phone.
