Who Is Using Your Imagination?
By Beverly Blanchard
We all do it. Every day we rent or lease out our imagination for free. We unconsciously allow not only the media, but our friends, acquaintances and colleagues to influence our state of being. We have become absentee mind-lords, unaware that the thoughts that are occupying our minds are creating our reality.
It happens all the time. We awaken in the morning feeling pretty good and then it starts. We remember yesterday’s argument, and instantly we rent out our mind to those individuals we are in conflict with. We surf the internet and allow the media’s portrayal of the world to direct our inner and outer conversations. We listen to the so called experts and repeat their economic, political, health and world viewpoints never quite understanding that they are leasing our imaginations and using us as pawns to ensure the validation of their theories.
There are some that would say that they must know what is going on in this world otherwise the political or corporate interests will take over. Unless we awaken to the global game plan we will be enslaved in a dark world.
We are taught to be conscientious about the food we put into our bodies, but when it comes to our minds we are oblivious to our mental diets. We feast upon the tragedies of the day, and continually talk about our lives and world in terms of what we don’t want. We never realize that what we are feeding our minds is actually creating our reality. You cannot entertain thoughts of a world collapsing and not create that world.
So what can you do? You can go on a mental diet for three days or a week. Give up gossiping. Stop reading and listening to the news. Suspend your judgments and begin consciously observing your thoughts. The only change you really need to work upon is yourself because you cannot change your outer world until you change yourself.
Once you have done this you and you go back to reading the news of the day, you may discover how through your emotions your imagination is being utilized. When you are emotionally charged, you give away your power. Become more discriminating about what you are feeding your imagination because you don’t need mind tenants who are directing your movie.
