The Importance of Imagination

Do you use the power of imagination to to create and expand your life? If not, you are not alone. Although right-brained creative thinking does come naturally to some people, it does not to others.

Personally I think our educations systems need an overhaul. We are taught “known knowledge” and we’re expected to regurgitate it by rote. There is some value in that, but it is also very limiting to the innate potential of our human consciousness.

What if part of our education from a very young age was geared towards developing our imagination and creative thinking skills? New inventions and solutions to existing problems require creative thinking. Our world is really in need of more creativity right now, not more “by rote”.

If you feel that your brain is too locked down in “what is” and you’re not giving any time to “what could be”, here is a good article with 10 tips on how to get your creative mind percolating:

      VJ, I totally agree. We’re also taught that when we get older, our usefulness is finished, and therefore why learn more? The formula for life around aging is a whole other subject again … 😉
