Creativity: Imagination

We do not see things as they are.  We see them as we are.        The Talmud

Great art is the outward expression of an inner life in the artist, and this inner life will result in his personal vision of the world.  No amount of skillful invention can replace the essential element of imagination.                        Edward Hopper

Our imagination originates and filters through our unique self.  The unique personality and experiences of a person create the lens through which they see AND CREATE their world.  That is our unique take on the world – that is our unique contribution to the world.  It must be valued, for it is one of a kind.  And it’s from everyone’s contribution that our world is created.   The recent popular phrase “Be the change” could be the imperative following this quote.  Using imagination to initiate change is a creative way to be in the world, as opposed to wishing or waiting for someone else to fix a problem.

Become the master of your fate by making choices that  originate from your imagination and move you into a space of freedom.

Whatever you yearn for, become it. Whatever you wish for, let it be your experience. Stop wishing for anything, just live it!

Let your imagination be the first step.
