the faculty of imagining, or of forming mental images or concepts of what is not actually present to the senses.
the action or process of forming such images or concepts.
the faculty of producing ideal creations consistent with reality, as in literature, as distinct from the power of creating illustrative or decorative imagery.
the product of imagining; a conception or mental creation, often a baseless or fanciful one.
ability to face and resolve difficulties; resourcefulness: a job that requires imagination.
Seems that at least a part of imagining is being able to bring whatever has come to mind, the imagined element, to the forefront of the senses. I believe that simply living in imagination without any embodiment of the imagined would be too sterile and mind centered for me. I must allow my imagination to come to fruition and become reality. Not all of the time but at least some of the time.
I am glad that I am able allow my imagination to come to life.
