THE WORKSHOP OF THE MIND

The Fifth Step toward Riches

MAN'S ONLY LIMITATION, within reason, LIES IN HIS

DEVELOPMENT AND USE OF HIS IMAGINATION.  He

has not yet reached the apex of development in the use

of his imaginative faculty.  He has merely discovered that 

he has an imagination, and has commenced to use it in

a very elementary way.

We have TWO FORMS OF IMAGINATION.

SYNTHETIC IMAGINATION

Through this faculty,  one may arrange old concepts, ideas

or plans into new combinations.

CREATIVE IMAGINATION

Through the faculty of Creative Imagination, the finite mind of

man has direct communication with Infinite Intelligence.  It is

the faculty that all basic, or new, ideas are handed over to man.

WHAT I WOULD DO IF I HAD A MILLION DOLLARS

The Bared Naked Ladies had a song a number of years ago 

about what they would do if they had a MILLION DOLLARS,

They have some frivious ideas of what they would do with the

money.  --

Dr. Frank W. Gunsaulus had some ideas of his own toward 

making this world a better place to live and improve our education.

He wanted to improve the educational systems --"learn by doing"

He had a DEFINITENESS OF PURPOSE and gave it a lot of 

thought.  Then he decided to make this dream/idea come true so

he announced the topic of his sermon about what he would do

if he had a Million Dollars -- He described his idea -- Phillip D. Armour

attended this day and liked the idea as well -- Thus the Armour

Institute of Technology was born -- The meeting of two minds - a 

MasterMind, we might say was formed that day, as Phillip D. Armour

had the needed One Million Dollars.

Thanks to Michael and Linda Dlouhy for providing this platform for 

all of us to learn and grow into the people that we were meant to 

be.

Love to all,
