Imagination and truth

I have a series of talks on inner life and seeing with the eye of the soul called How To See Spiritually. Previous talks have looked at why spirituality is important, soul, wonder, interiority, scepticism, parables, ego, psi and virtues. Now I turn to imagination.

Since the modern enlightenment, imagination has been downgraded to “mere fancy”. Though, as William Blake noted, “there is nothing now proven that was not once imagined”, and so this truth bearing faculty of spiritual perception must be reconsidered. In this talk, I look at how and why the imagination is invaluable when seeking to see spiritually.
