The surpassing power of imagination

The surpassing power of imagination

If you haven’t already read it, you can find the complete description of my collection, Exit From the Matrix, in my store, here.

Readers who’ve been with me for a while know I’ve written a great deal about imagination. This collection puts together more than 50 exercises and techniques for expanding the scope, range, and power of imagination.

Why? Because imagination is the quality that outdoes reality. Any kind of reality. Imagination is the infinite road.

Consciousness wants to create new consciousness, and it can. Imagination is how it does it. If there were some ultimate state of consciousness, imagination would always be able to play another card and take it further.

In any arena of life, and especially when it comes to mind, perception, power, empathy, and so on, there is always a status quo. It’s the place where a person says, “Well, that’s enough. I’ll settle for what I have. I’ll stop here.”

Sooner or later, this leads to boredom, frustration, problems, and conflict. It leads to a decline.

Imagination, which knows no bounds, is the source for the most adventurous explorations. It can have great impact on the material world, of course, but one mustn’t therefore conclude it is composed of matter or energy. Imagination is non-material. To think otherwise winds you up in using some version of physics to depict imagination—and then you are imposing limits on it. This is an error. Imagination doesn’t obey any laws of physics.

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, we’ve flattered reality enough. It doesn’t need any more. Imagination creates new realities.

You can create the same thing over and over, and eventually you’ll be about as alive as a table. Inject imagination into the mix, and everything suddenly changes. You can steer that boat anywhere you want to. You can build worlds.

The lowest common denominator of consensus implies an absence of imagination. Everyone agrees; everyone is bored; everyone is obedient. On the opposite end of the spectrum, there are massive floods of unique individual creation, and then that sought-after thing called abundance is as natural as the sun rising in the morning.

Exit From the Matrix

Sitting around in a cosmic bus station waiting for reality is what reality is. Everything else is imagination.

There are those who believe life is a museum. You walk through the rooms, find one painting, stroll into it and take up permanent residence. But the museum is endless. If you were a painter, you’d never decide to live inside one of your canvases forever. You’d keep on painting.

The relentless and obsessive search for all those things on which we can agree is a confession of bankruptcy.

When we re-learn to live through and by imagination, we enter and invent new space and time. But space and time aren’t superior forces. They come into being at the tap of imagination.

With imagination, one can solve a problem. More importantly, one can skip ahead of the problem and render it null and void.

There are a billion murals on a billion walls, and a person chooses one and falls down before it and devotes himself to it. He spends a thousand years trying to decipher it. So be it. This isn’t imagination.

Imagination isn’t a system. It might invent systems, but it is non-material. It’s a capacity. It feels no compulsion to imitate reality. It makes realities. Its scope is limited only by a person’s imagining of how far imagination can go.

The human race is obsessed by the question: what exists? It appears to be a far easier question than: what do you want to imagine? This comparison explains why civilizations decline.

Imagination is a path. Walking on that path long enough, you find answers to all the questions you’ve ever asked. You also find power that people dream of.

    Jon, My name is Mike and after 6 years of watching my life and everything in it evaporate I was contacted Christmas Eve 2012 by a friend(Lord). My Mom and Dad were also there which solidified what was being conveyed to me. The event as many are calling the awakening brought people together that had gone thru similar events. Before this I had several accidents, in which I died for 10 seconds during the first, I watched my marriage and family fall apart. Being alone for the first time in my life I finally resorted to attempting suicide. Of three attempts there were three interventions which nulled them. At that time I received a vision that took the place of dreams lasting over 2 weeks. I saw my life with certain events amplified and explained by an entity I assumed was God. At the end of the last vision I was told point blank “Sometimes You have to lose everything before you can appreciate having anything”. When I awoke from this I was angry and walked outside, looked up to the heavens, and told God in no uncertain terms to go away and not come back as I was thru with fairy tails.

    The entity that came Christmas eve had told me just before that I was going to smile before the night was over for which I replied “Not likely”. The events that happened that night were supernatural in that I heard and saw my folks in my heart not with my eyes! I can’t explain it other than just like that but they were as real as if they had been there in the flesh. The entity who I had never seen before and felt was the Lord had a form that was not recognizable but appeared as many colors and densities. I have discovered over the last year that by breaking down the walls of everything I was taught and looking at events that appeared far fetched I started seeing a different reality. I looked at information about planet X and instead of passing it off as someone’s nightmare I went thru the effort to investigate it. I now know from records of our own government and a new sense inside much like smelling or hearing that it is true.

    I was also asked on Christmas eve to call 20 people from my business customer base at random and share with them what I learned as the truth. I did this but only 3 ever took the time to come over and get involved. We ended up following 14 objects in the sky starting in late June(daytime) heading from east to west and ending in early September coming out of the west. At that time they stayed in areas around the sky but above us where we live which is the Willamette Valley here in Oregon. After about a month most have moved away towards the east. On Thanksgiving day as it was getting dark 8 of these objects started appearing 2 at a time very much closer in the sky above. First 2 orange/red ones, then 2 bluish, then 2 greenish and finally 2 almost fluorescent ones. They put on a show for around a dozen people that were at a local 7-11 store I was at located just down from my business. At the end of the event all but 2 converged and then shot out into space at random directions and have never returned. 2 of them , a florescent and orange/red one still remain directly above my business but at different altitudes. During the time of this last summers events I had been harassed by Linn County police and one morning I awoke to a sore right elbow which later I discovered had gotten shattered. I have small pieces of foggy dream like memories that suggest I was abducted by 5 small grey aliens who were, at a time I was feeling pain and trying to awaken, trying to stuff me thru a small metal like hatch on some kind of vehicle. I am a kick boxer and remember foggy piece of event where I am kicking , pushing and elbowing to be rid of these evil creatures while they are trying to stuff me thru a small oval doorway. My head was pounding because each time they pushed the top of my head was hitting the lip of the opening and it hurt. The only other thing again very foggy was seeing police lights darkness and the black outline of a human body and then darkness again. Again I can’t testify to any of this but to the fact there is no longer a bone in my right elbow where once there was. Pain is all but gone and I am learning to live with the weird sensation of when I rest it now it locks into the little pit now there.

    I wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your last article concerning the reality of our imagination. I have not only learned how powerful it is but that if you focus your sole on it that it can become reality. Sorry for the length of all this but I will finish and leave you with one last factual event. I really never understood why Mom and Dad were part of the original visit until 2 days ago. I received the first vision in a long time early Sunday morning. I never understood why between the age of 4 and 7 I had very few pieces of memories. I knew I was so afraid of the dark I had bad night terrors that woke my family and ticked everyone off. I also started wetting the bed and became deafly afraid of bathrooms to the point I avoided all school-public ones until my 7th grade. It got so bad for me at that time my mom put my brother in my bed in order to try and help me sleep. It finally started working and in several months I was able to manage a good 5 hours sleep as long as there was always a light on nearby. At the beginning of all this I really couldn’t speak right and would slowly slur words together to communicate. After returning to second grade late I then received counseling and a special speech therapist that would meet with me for an hour every day at school. During that school year where I had even wet my pants on several occasions because I was to afraid to force my way into the bathroom I improved back to normal.

    In brief, I never have been able to sleep thru the night unless I am awake for more than 24 hours and even then 4-5 hours max. I have always been afraid of the dark when alone which I never was until my ex left me 7 years ago. Thru the website “The Real Truth” Jean runs on I have learned I am one of the awakened members and am being protected by ET’s from far away. Most people that I share this information with think I am making it up from my vivid imagination. A lot of years I wondered the same thing and then a call from my Mom where in a panicked state she told me our country was under attacked. As she explained the airliner that crashed into the twin towers a voice in my heart told me something was very wrong. In the weeks that followed I became frustrated as I tried to point out to friends and family the fact that it was impossible for a collision of any kind to have caused the damage that was inflicted that day. As I said at that time and continue to say “Something far more powerful/deadly hit those buildings and it involved our government because not one jet or helicopter came along in defense of our nation. The so called attack on the pentagon proved how it had to be an inside well planned event.

    I have learned to appreciate and even trust my imagination as most the things I imagined as a child have happened and to a far greater effect than was even imaginable not that long ago. From my heart and sole I give you and the rest of the awakened people in this world that have had the strength to see past their own personal risks to help the rest of the people to try and wake up! The time is running very short for everyone and the future of this world and freedom depend on all of us awake and helping to stop the lies.


  3. Imagination is the only path, when we are in that space we transcend other realities and in our transcendence we are the change
