The Images We See

Posted by Rod Jones on

The Images We See: The eye is a camera that records all that's before us. It's the Viewmaster of our thinking vitality. The mind's eye processes moving pictures into still frames for further examination. All this seeing is cataloged in your brain. Billions of images are stored, but only a small percentage is actually retained in the conscious mind. Most are hidden from daily view in the subconscious, to be brought back into the reality of the conscious mind when needed. Those images require thinking and visual stimulation. Your mind needs reminders to pull up relevant and associated forgotten images. Bringing life into your memories and, ultimately, to your thoughts and ideas.

Then what happens? Nearly all living creatures have memories that are tied directly to images. Creative people probably store the most visual memories associated with something they saw. It's like having a personal image library to call on when you need a thought tied to an idea that helps you cultivate originality. That visual memory bank is perhaps more valuable than we will ever know. Everything that we take for granted came out of someone's imagination to make it happen. You can be sure that they summoned a life's worth of buried images to achieve their goal.

When you're stuck for an idea, reminisce. Your mind will start feeding you relatable visual experiences that can be used to achieve your goals. It not only works for creative thoughts and ideas, but it is your best tool when it comes to living a healthy and prosperous life. Images are memories, and perhaps some of those images are not good. But the goal is to bring up positive and healthy images to ensure inner and outer peace.

"My mind dealt images to me faster than I could comprehend. Cluttering my ability to distinguish one from another. Slowly, the treasure trove revealed what I was looking for, and that was an original idea that I could embrace." Rod Jones Artist.
