Comments:

• Reality responds to imaginings like lightning to a rod. There is a corresponding actual reality in direct proportion to the potential reality of your imagination. 

• You can use your imagination against yourself too. We are very creative about how we should feel – good or bad. Most of the negative selftalk is pure imagination.
