For thought to manifest, to create beauty out of ugliness, to attract wealth out of poverty, to bring health out of an unhealthy body, you need higher intelligence, higher projections of imagination.
Animals do not have this. Plants do not have it. They are literal, what you see is what you get.
But in our human existence, the ugliest man can make the most beautiful woman fall in love with him, the unhealthiest person can become the healthiest one, the poorest person can become the richest, the dullest individual can become highly intellectual and talented, etc. etc.
All these accomplishments and more are manifestations or creations of our higher minds, of higher imaginations to be more precise; hence, humankind has been gifted with higher states of imagination, so what we imagine, without fear and with divine patience, we can manifest throughout our lives.
Evidently, it not only takes imagination but our own effort; therefore, we have been given the most powerful tool to build, but we must use it properly and without obstacles to building–i.e., without fears in our minds.
And it is funny that the same powerful tool given to us also brings the most powerful enemy into us, fear. So we may create better futures for ourselves or we may destroy our futures by the same power, namely Imagination.
