Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.

Albert Einstein

Albert Einstein (pronounced /ˈælbərt ˈaɪnstaɪn/; German: [ˈalbɐt ˈaɪ̯nʃtaɪ̯n] ( listen); 14 March 1879–18 April 1955) was a theoretical physicist. His many contributions to physics include the special and general theories of relativity, the founding of relativistic cosmology, the first post-Newtonian expansion, explaining the perihelion advance of Mercury, prediction of the deflection of light by gravity and gravitational lensing, the first fluctuation dissipation theorem which explained the Brownian movement of molecules, the photon theory and wave-particle duality, the quantum theory of atomic motion in solids, the zero-point energy concept, the semiclassical version of the Schrödinger equation, and the quantum theory of a monatomic gas which predicted Bose-Einstein condensation.

Einstein is best known for his theories of special relativity and general relativity. He received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics “for his services to Theoretical Physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect.”

Einstein published more than 300 scientific and over 150 non-scientific works. He is often regarded as the father of modern physics.

    I’d like to think that the law of attraction is valid and by extension, the importance of imagination… and it’s the main reason why I write a “Daily Imagining” where humans are interacting with nature in a very positive and intentional way.

    With Love and Gratitude,

    The Intentional Sage

    ,This quote is very powerful especially with hypnotherapy clients who come from a left brain paradigm and sometimes are afraid to trust imagination. It reminds us that the scope of the mind is way beyond what most people think. More things in heave and earth and mind than ever conceived just by the limits of man’s knowledge.
