Imagination Is More Important Than KnowledgeEver noticed the word 'magi' in imagination?
- there is much written about the origin of this word magi...but only from the modern world since the written word was developed as a tool
long before the written word magi or shaman or wisdom keepers understood the depths of our minds potential deeply and utilised its powers to influence and shape and flow with the natural magics of the world...
indeed imagination is far more important than knowledge - long since our world devalued the imagination and deteriorated its influence to that of fantasy and day dreaming we lost an essential human capacity to truly enter into the spiritual forces of the world and be influential and influenced by the creative magic of imagination...
knowledge is indeed the blunt tool we have used to smash the world into submission - imagination was once and must become again in the future the resonating force with which we carve our bold new future out of the human need to heal this world and ourselves in it and leave for our grandchildrens grandchildren a world replete with magic again. Sadly our global approach to education has been to destroy creativity and imagination in our schools and youth...WTF?

Imagination - I magi nation - a nation influencing creativity that fills my soul...something which can only empower us all to go beyond the limits of mere knowledge.
