A conversation with Thomas about imagination …
Last night he wanted to know why some adults forget how to use their imagination when they grow up? He asked why some adults use the imagination for negative things. He also asked why the imagination was a good thing.
I told him some people are just disconnected from their true selves. Sure he may not grasp what I meant but I choose not to let that stop me from trying to explain things. I also told him EVERYTHING material begins in ones imagination. These items must have first been a thought in someone’s mind. I was holding a fork so I used that as an example. Told him someone had to imagine that fork before it became a material object.
Then I shared the awesome Albert Einstein quote with him about imagination … “Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.” -Albert Einstein ….
Did I mention how grateful and blessed I am by this young man’s soul being a part of my life? … Overflowing … xoxo
