Pondering Questions

Don’t treat these questions like “homework” or try to answer every single one. Instead, make time to meditate on the list and then pick a single question that speaks to you. Which question is yours? Contains a piece of your work this month? What is that question trying to get you to notice or acknowledge? It may even help to read the list to a friend or loved one and ask them which question they think might be yours! 

Have you ever been saved by your imagination 

Has imagination ever led you astray? 

Have you become more or less imaginative with age? 

Is your imagination ever kind to you? Or cruel to you? 

What is the opposite of imagination? 

What cultural story do you think our society most sufferers from? 

How can imagination help you be in relationship with someone who is radically different from you?

We all live with a voice that says “One day I will…” What possible life has been with you the longest? 

Do the “mustn’ts,” “shouldn’ts,” and “won’ts” from your childhood still impact your imagination? 

What do you want to thank your childhood imaginary friend for? 

Do you use your imagination to enhance reality or to flee from it? 

Albert Einstein said, “Imagination is more important than knowledge.” When have you witnessed this be true?
