Jon Rappoport ~ The Age of Imagination

In this short, yet powerful piece, Jon explores the important question: “What is freedom for?” He highlights two different responses to myth — the propagandizing of reality and the path of the artist. By embracing individuality and our own power to create, we can generate new worlds. Plural. Amidst the either/or choice of Pollyanna heads-in-the-sand or complete doom-and-gloom, I 100% agree that we have not just one other option, but multitudes of options. “There are no limits on imagination except those imposed by Self.” Brilliant post!

The age of imagination

During the 20th century, awareness of human mythmaking grew to enormous proportions.

Looking back, it was obvious that cultures and civilizations had been inventing their own myths, before which they then bowed down.

This insight was then taken in two very different directions.

On the one hand, academics and psychologists drew the inference that all experience and perception were “relative.” That territory was infected by propagandists, whose job was to induce decay into all standards of ethics and morality.

On the other hand, some artists realized the core of the original insight was fantastically bracing and liberating for the faculty of imagination.

As in: imagination creates reality—therefore, use your own and invent your own.

We are living in the middle of that precept. What each one of us chooses to do with it is an open question.

Reality is no longer a given. The tyranny of What Already Exists is gone, should we choose to see that fact.

The catch is, the challenge is, the individual must shift from a passive to active stance.

Passivity includes seeing through various deceptions but then stopping there.

There are no limits on imagination except those imposed by Self.

When the iconography of every organization is viewed as an effort to entrance and entrain minds, the alternative is individual creation.

This can be launched in any field of human endeavor.

It is all art.

Complaints and objections are useless. One either invents or one doesn’t.

Obviously, not everyone is ready for this.

But for those who are, freedom takes on new dimensions. In fact, imagination/invention/creation becomes the core answer to the question, What is freedom for?

The implications are staggering. We are no longer contemplating the future with a query of “what will it look look like,” or “what will it be”? There is no It. The future is wide open. Side by side, many, many individuals will invent novel realities, leading to decentralization of power.

In a sense, we are no longer looking at one universe, but many.

This is the bottom-line reason for the preservation of the twin concepts of The Individual and Freedom.

    Love this post reblogged by Laura Bruno, and written by Jon Rappoport. As my motto is, “creating life as a work of art” – also the theme of my blog site, of course this speaks to the heart of me and what I believe in – that we are artists of life and to the degree we exercise our imagination, infused with heart, is to the degree your freedom is contracted or expanded, and limitations created or removed.
