Imagination is more Important than Knowledge

Inspiring people, The mind

As someone who practices energy healing and meditation I am very drawn to Albert Einsten and all that he discovered in his lifetime.  I love how he believed that the imagination is by far more important in this life than knowledge.  In healing we use our imagination greatly and what we focus our attention on in our life is what shall show up.

Albert Einstein was one of the most brilliant minds that ever lived. Not only was he an outstanding scientist who revolutionized physics in a fundamental way, but he was also an influential speaker on education, social justice, and religion. He was a scientist who believed in the power of imagination and creativity, and who considered that education is a personal quest that should never end.

 

Let’s take a glimpse into Albert Einstein’s mind through some of his most popular quotes. His words on success, love, and justice can inspire us to live happy and meaningful lives.

1. On the Power of Imagination

Imagination is more important than knowledge. ~ Albert Einstein
Knowledge is a map that guides us while imagination is the territory where we can roam freely and search for answers and opportunities. Imagination knows no restraint and it is the power that puts knowledge to use.

2. On Nature and Knowledge

Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better. ~ Albert Einstein

Everything around us is governed by logical, complex laws which we can discover once we pay enough attention. Deep into nature, we find beauty, order, and harmony, and we find that everything is connected.

3. On Success and Value

Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value. ~ Albert Einstein
Success is not always correlated with value. To be a man of success often means playing by certain rules of society, not necessarily bringing real value. A man of value does not seek praise or admiration, and it is not interested in being seen as successful because he knows his real value.

4. On Education

Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school. ~ Albert Einstein
Most people think education stops at graduation. The truth is that real education has little to do with schooling. Once we get into the real world, we discover how little we know. Outside the school gates, we find thatwe have weaknesses which only experience and further learning can cover.

5. On Change

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. ~ Albert Einstein
People are victims of comforts and routine. We do the same things every day, yet expect great changes in our lives. A great change starts, however, with a small step in a new direction. When we gather the courage to act with greatness, we can expect great things to happen.

6. On Moving On

Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving. ~ Albert Einstein
Life is not always good to us. Every one of us experiences at some point feelings of sadness, distress, or disappointment. The real challenge is to move past these feelings and focus on the empty canvas that lies ahead.

7. On Logic and Imagination

Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere. ~ Albert Einstein
Logic and imagination don’t have to compete with each other. They both have their own purpose. Imagination is all about possibilities and opportunities, while logic is about turning possibilities into actual plans and real projects.

8. On Experience

The only source of knowledge is experience. ~ Albert Einstein
Most of the today’s learning means sharing information and theoretical knowledge. This is rarely the type of knowledge that can be applied in our day to day circumstances. Experience is the actual powerful knowledge that can give us control over our future.

9. On Respect for Truth

Unthinking respect for authority is the greatest enemy of truth. ~ Albert Einstein
Acting with thoughtless obedience towards authority does not mean respecting authority. Even people with authority are prone to mistakes. It is our duty to question everything that does not follow the principles of justice, truth, and kindness.

10. On Living in the Moment

A happy man is too satisfied with the present to dwell too much on the future. ~ Albert Einstein
Worrying about future is a symptom of a miserable present, in which we cannot find peace or fulfillment. A happy person lives in the moment, free from the ties of the past or those of the future.

Extra Ordinary Human

heartmath, The mind

Listening to Gregg Braden Live just now, he is just opening up my tiny mind to this New world.  I have read his book ‘The Divine Matrix’ and was fascinated by this book, his talks on Gaia.com are amazing.  His beliefs on Healing through thought alone and to change our lives and relationships, heal our bodies, and bring peace to our families and nations requires a simple yet precise shift in the way we use belief.

Fact 1: The universe, our world, and our bodies are made of a shared field of energy that was scientifically recognized in the 20th century and is now identified by names that include the field, the quantum hologram, the mind of God, nature’s mind, and the Divine Matrix.’
• Fact 2: In the field of the Divine Matrix, “things” that have been connected physically and then separated act as if they are still linked, through a phenomenon known as entanglement.

• Fact 3: Human DNA directly influences what happens in the Divine Matrix in a way that appears to defy the laws of time and space.’

Fact 4: Human belief (and the feelings and emotions surrounding it) directly changes the DNA that affects what occurs in the Divine Matrix.6

• Fact 5: When we shift our beliefs about our bodies and our world, the Divine Matrix translates that change into the reality of our lives!,
The more I hear and read about consciousness from the likes of Gregg Braden, Bruce Lipton, Dispenza and such like the more I realise that it all comes down to what we all probably already know, (well if your on this path of consciousness).  So we Ask the Universe, then we create the feelings within our heart and completely believe it, then with gratitude we say Thank you.

We need to filter out all the bullsh*t, the crap we are told, the facebook, snapchat world that is dulling us all down and really look for ourselves and discover what is really true.

 

Mindset Of Bruce Lee

mind hacking, The mind

After my session of Tai Chi, I have decided I shall become Bruce Lee.  Well we all have to aim for something and as the saying goes – “Shoot for the moon and if you miss at least you will hit the stars” I think its something along those lines.  So I am, this week, loving Tai Chi and I have been practicing with my 6 year old this week, who also thinks he is Po from Kung fu Panda (we all have our thing)

So aside from practicing and feeling the chi, I have been researching a little on the mind-set of Bruce Lee and here are a few of his quotes.

On the Mind:

“To hell with circumstances; I create opportunities!”
“The spirit of the individual is determined by his dominating thought habits.”

“Life’s battles don’t always go to the stronger or faster man. But sooner or later the man who wins, is the man who thinks he can.”

“If you think a thing is impossible, you’ll only make it impossible.”
“As you think, so shall you become.”

“Do not allow negative thoughts to enter your mind for they are the weeds that strange confidence.”

“Choose the positive. You have choice, you are master of your attitude, choose the positive, the constructive. Optimism is a faith that leads to success.”

“The unconditioned mind intuits truth – Bring the mind into sharp focus and make it alert so that it can immediately intuit truth, which is everywhere. The mind must be emancipated from old habits, prejudices, restrictive thought processes and even ordinary thought itself.”
