The Matrix: the way out of it

The Matrix: the way out of it

By Jon Rappoport

For years now, I’ve been saying that the way out of the Matrix is through IMAGINATION. Indeed, my collection, Exit From The Matrix, contains over 50 exercises designed to increase the range of imagination and creative power. Creative power means: the individual invents the future he profoundly wants in the world.

Here, from my notes…

“People who say they have no imagination are imagining they have no imagination.”

“Imagination breathes life into any enterprise. Otherwise, the enterprise becomes dull, mechanical, frustrating, and spins its wheels in the same place. Life-force is all about new frontiers, and imagination creates those frontiers. This is a law more potent than any so-called natural law of the universe…”

“Imagination is like a person tapping you on the shoulder and saying, ‘Here is something that doesn’t exist, but it could.’ Except there is no other person. You’re tapping yourself on the shoulder.”

“Imagination doesn’t bet on winners in a horse race. Imagination covers the field and the track and the grandstands and the horses and the jockeys and the sky above the track—imagination can go anywhere and do anything, if you call upon it. It is the antidote to fixed and final reality…”

“There are people who are satisfied with things as they are or believe there is no way out of things as they are. Then there are people who see there is a way out for the individual. That way is imagination, because it invents new realities.”

“Imagination is the spark that awakens unlimited amounts of energy. Without it, energy is depleted.”

“Imagination is the fuel and the material for passion. Passion without imagination gets trapped in a diminishing vortex and peters out. It has nowhere new to go. It often turns into a desire for control, an empty desire with no life in it.”

“I’ve known people who spent years forwarding an enterprise and succeeded—up to a point. Then they stalled. They had no answers. They forgot they’d originally launched, years earlier, on the basis of imagination—and they needed it now, more than ever. This is a familiar theme. It’s repeated over and over. A renewal only comes with a new burst of imagination. It doesn’t happen any other way…”

“Despite comparisons, the individual does not operate as Nature does. It may appear that, every spring, new life is automatically breathed back into trees and grass and flowers, but the individual doesn’t move forward automatically in that way. The individual creates his own ‘seasons’, or he doesn’t. He either taps his own imagination, or he doesn’t. Fancy wish-fulfillment philosophies may try to explain how life-force keeps pushing the individual ahead, but those hopeful ideas fall woefully short. The individual is a painter with a very, very large blank canvas. He either invents, creates, imagines, or no painting gets done. The upside is, when painter paints and keeps painting, his life, in its essence, in its emotions, in its energies, widens and deepens, and the future he wants comes into being. Indeed, that future turns out to be more than he thought he could attain…”
