The Mystery of the Imagination

Where Does Your Imagination Lead You?

One of the things that make us different from the animal world is our ability to imagine. Since the beginning of time, man has told stories of the imagination.

Every invention is born in someone’s mind. We don’t find man’s best friend building houses and making machines. No, imagination is unique to human kind.

Imagination is evidence that man was created in God’s image. Our very existence was birthed in the mind of God. One serious look at our world and universe tells us that our Creator has a vast imagination.

So, the simple answer to our question is, our imaginations should lead us to God.

Where Do Ideas Come From?

Where is the Idea Factory?

My daughter loves the Harry Potter series, and begged me to take her to see each movie. Being the writer that I am, I would sit and wonder how J. K. Rowling could come up with such a fanciful world. Every scene took place in a world very unlike my own.

It wasn’t until I took a trip to the United Kingdom that my question was answered. The British writer wrote from her own world. The wonderful settings that mesmerize us Americans are common to the Brits. All that J. K. Rowling did was to embellish her own world.

What’s sits around you that is your window into another world?
