Imagination is the key
by Jon Rappoport

“Your past, everything that has ever happened to you, everything you’ve ever done becomes raw fuel for the fire of your imagination. That is the meaning of transformation. The past is no longer a problem. You invent futures that are no longer limited by the past.” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)
Let’s say you live in a three-story house…but in all the years you’ve lived there, you’ve never gone upstairs to the second and third floors. You’ve spent the entire time on the first floor.
On the first floor, you’ve grappled with problems, made your stand, dealt with crises, planned your solutions.
Occasionally, you’ve had glimpses of something more, but that’s it. Glimpses.
The upper unused floors are imagination.
That’s where problems are transformed, where possibilities become so real they outdistance the normal terms in which problems are cast and thought about.
In truth, a whole new life is there for the taking, on the upper floors. An invented life.
One night at 4am, you wake up and realize those upper floors are yours. You go up the stairs. You look around and you see your own past, your own history—but now, all that material contains an added potential.
The potential to be recast, remixed, combined, dissolved, reshaped…or eliminated entirely. You see pure possibility stretching out in all directions. Waiting.
Waiting for you to invent.
The space of those upper floors can be changed. It can be expanded without limit.
It’s not the content of the future you’re seeing. It’s the possibility of inventing content.
This possibility is so pure, so alive, it overshadows questions and confusions.
You’re the painter with the blank canvas. The thrill of that fact goes beyond any adventure you’ve ever had.
The only question is, do you want this? Will you choose it?
No one can answer that question except you. But you can realize that, down through history, others have said yes. Others have launched themselves. Others have discovered that, as they moved on that road, their bedrock emotions underwent a transformation and their perception of life changed…
