Imagination: Romancing The Spirit

Imagination: Romancing The Spirit

“Imagination is the eye of the soul.”

Joseph Joubert

According to the dictionary, imagination is ‘The faculty or action of forming new ideas, or images, or concepts of external objects not present to the senses.’ and ‘The ability of the mind to be creative or resourceful.’

Every romance novel was created through the imagination of the mind of the author. Writers are always creating something that was not there before, something that cannot be touched and seen, and so it makes sense that imagination is important in this process. It allows you to feel empathy and compassion.  Romance is created through the use of the imagination. It is a feeling of excitement and mystery associated with love. How can we know the Divine? How can we connect at a deeper level?  

“I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.”

Albert Einstein

“If you fall in love with the imagination, you understand that it is a free spirit. It will go anywhere, and it can do anything.”

Alice Walker
