The World of Imagination

The world of Imagination, by Vikas Sharma ( Expand The Horizon )The home you’re living in, the clothes you’re wearing, the cell phone you’re using, the computer you’re have, the music you listen to or any kind of art, and more and more and more, are all somehow somewhat linked to the imagination. I want to share some my thoughts on imagination, so here’s something about imagination from my perspective.

What is imagination? Some may say it is the ability to create pictures in our mind but does it really limited to merely creating pictures in our mind? I think no, it is not only limited to creating pictures in the mind. We, the humans can imagine a lot more than just creating pictures in our mind. We can imagine sounds, taste, smell, emotions, a physical sensation or a feeling. Yes! We can imagine all this, you might have noticed it and we all have our own different world of imagination, our imagination is subjective. For some people, it is easier to visualize a picture in their mind, for some it is easier to imagine a sound, and for others it easier to imagine a feeling and other things. Imagination makes it possible to experience a whole world inside a mind, and mentally it gives us the ability to look at any situation from a different point of views. Imagination strengthens our creative abilities when we know how to work with it, when we know how to use the power of imagination. We all use it, whether consciously or unconsciously, in most of our daily affairs. For instance, when you a plan a trip to somewhere you must have imagined something about the trip in your mind, or when you read some kind of story you must have imagined something in your mind of that story.

Now the question is, can we really turn our imagination into really, if yes then how? Yes! Of course we can turn our imagination into reality, you might have noticed it in your to day to day life, we do it many times. To turn imagination into reality just examine whether the things you have imagined are really possible to achieve in any way, if it is possible somehow then try to experience it as if it is real even before you haven’t tried to turn it into a physical reality. Now make some calculations in your mind, how you executed your imagination to turn it into reality and how you felt when you visualize it as a physical reality. Ask yourself some questions and try to find out the answers as this might help you to find out a way to turn your imagination into reality. Imagination can play a significant role in achieving our objectives and goals if we have a strong grip on the art of imagination, if we realize its power and know how to use it. Try to execute concepts in your mind until it works for you and when you realize it worked then bring it out, try it out. Sometimes, imagination can even help us to avoid collisions and mishaps too.

Now here’s an interesting question that whether a human imagination is infinite? I think no, human imagination is not infinite, our imagination is limited; it is the combination in which we can imagine things are probably infinite. We can imagine uncountable things in our imagination but there are things which are outside of our imagination. We imagine things based on our experience, our knowledge, our imagination is linked with the things we have experienced, things we have heard, seen, felt or smelled. So, our imagination is limited because there can be lots of things which we can’t imagine, it is the combination in which we can imagine is infinite. In the end I would like to say, be silly sometimes and try to play with imagination, and remember in the end it is the self-confidence, understanding, ideas, knowledge and continuous action which will transforms your imagination into a reality.

Lots of love,

Absolute Certainty

Absolutality - absolute certainty - by Vikas SharmaI think there is no absolute freedom, there is no absolute truth, and there is no deep reality. It is like the more freedom we have, the more we learn and the more we live our desired life; the more truth we know, the more awake and aware we become; and the more reality we realize, the less ignorance will prevail around or inside us. For me, the whole concept of the absolutality is just something of an enigma, and perhaps, it is not possible to achieve an absolute certainty of freedom, truth and reality as none of them exists in the state of an absolute certainty. In spite of all this, the state of absolutality is always imagined as something beautiful, it always looks alluring and pure, and therefore we crave for it which is great indeed as our every step towards this unreachable absolutality makes us a better human, a better person. Hence, it is logically pretty good to pursue this unreachable non-existent absolute certainty of freedom, truth and reality.

Reality Behind The Reality

Reality is an illusion.What is Reality? In simple words, reality can be defined as the true situation and the problem that actually exist in life in contrast to how you would like life to be or it can be defined as a thing that is actually experienced or seen in contrast to what people might imagine. Well! That’s what the word ‘reality’ means, but that’s not what the reality is all about. Let’s have a deep dive into the reality!

It’s not necessary that my reality is your reality. Reality is subjective, consisting of perceptions and ideas. From one’s point of view, the things which are something to someone, might be something different from someone else point of view. The things we feel and see is reality for us. It’s our idea and perception about the things that shapes our reality and we can have different ideas and perceptions about the same thing. So the question arises, what is absolute reality? Well! I can’t say anything about it; perhaps it’s too deep to understand absolute reality. Dreams seem very real when we are asleep but when we wake up we realize that what seemed so real when we were dreaming was just in the mind, we realize that it was just the dream, not the reality. Let’s take another example, for a small child or for a person who doesn’t know that stars are not visible at the day time due to sunlight, they would have some other perception or idea about this thing, they might believe that star just comes out in the night and disappear in the day, but the fact is stars doesn’t disappear, they are still there at their place. It’s like as more we learn and know about the things, there can be some change in the way we look at the things and therefore, our reality changes with our knowledge. We may have different views and opinions on one object but this doesn’t change the object, object doesn’t change depending upon our thoughts about them. They exist objectively whether or not we think about them, observe them, measure them or ignore them.

We all have our own world of reality; we observe things and then create our reality based on our knowledge, ideas and perceptions. It’s the observer who creates reality and we all are observer, observing the things around us. Whatever you observe is instantly real to you but this doesn’t means that anything which are not in your field of observation just doesn’t exist like I have stated the example of stars. Have you ever thought you heard something when actually there was nothing? Have you ever thought you saw someone and when you looked there, there was no one? Have you ever felt that the things you are experiencing or the things you are seeing, you have already seen and experienced in the past but actually who haven’t; have you ever felt the déjà vu? Have you ever looked at an illusion and been deceived that one line was longer than the other but actually it wasn’t? And there are examples of mirage and many other optical illusions. Aren’t there hundreds of occasions when we do deceive? This simply shows that our mind can get deceived, we can make reality which is not actually the reality or it’s just the reality for one person and for other person the things can be different. It is possible that things as we perceive them are not that way at all, sometimes things can be a lot different from our idea or observation about them.

There are few theories about multiverse(it is the hypothetical set of multiple possible universes) which implies that there are multiple realities where every possible outcome is played out in a parallel universe. It’s impossible to prove this hypothetical theory but it’s an interesting hypothetical theory. What if there’s any truth in this hypothesis? Then will there be multiple realities? Are we living in past, present or future at the same time? Does our human brain perceiving just one possible interpretation of the ultimate reality? Our understanding of the universe is very much limited. What if our some of the current theories will get proved wrong? Then will we still have the same perception about the reality? The reality, the truth is out there but it’s complicated, will we ever understand it? Perhaps, we can one day!  Moreover, it can be much more astonishing and crazier than we can even imagine.

Have a good day ~ Vikas Sharma

Remember – It All Start With Thoughts

Dreams, Imaginations and Ideas; I believe in all these things and the more I live the more I understand the value of these immaterial things. Just think if we can’t live our dreams then what’s the point of our life? Simply to survive? I want more than survival. I want to actually wake up and be excited about my life. In this post I’m writing some of my thoughts on dreams, imagination and on ideas and how to convert them into physical reality. The difference between the physical reality and dreams or imaginations or ideas can be filled up by the efforts, efforts to convert them into the physical reality. Dreams, Imaginations, Ideas; all these are just the seeds which doesn’t really exist in the material world unless we put some efforts to make them a well-grown fruitful tree. In my point of view, dreams, imaginations and ideas, these all are interconnected. All these are in our mind unless we act upon them and if we really want them to be real then we must make our mind believe that it can do anything if we put all the efforts in the right direction. We just have to believe in our dreams, in our imaginations and in our ideas and if there was ever a moment to follow your heart and do something that matters to you, that moment is now. So start acting as soon as you feel you have something inside your head. Sometimes, if you ever feel like a directionless in the life then just try to follow your intuition, it’s the best thing to follow your intuition and make a decision and then find a new direction and then keep moving on.

It’s always better to work in a group than alone. So whenever you find someone who matches up with your things then just patch up with that person. Working together can make a big difference in all of our lives. If you keep doing what you’re doing, you’ll keep getting what you’re getting. So never hesitate to try new things if you don’t like the output of your efforts; who knows one day you may get what you dreamed of. It’s somewhat true, life is not easy especially when you plan on achieving something worthwhile like achieving your dreams; as achieving dreams can mean a lot of work and efforts and sometimes, disappointment and frustration too. It requires a lot of energy and resources. So don’t give up easily and just keep exploiting the resources around you. Moreover, it’s not about having the right resources; it’s about exploiting the resources you do have access to. The best thing you can do is do the best with what is in front of you with the resources you do have access to.

I’m learner and I’ll be learner till the end. Right now there’s a lot I don’t know and I’ll always be ready to learn all the things I don’t know. No matter how smart you are or how much you learn there will always be more to learn. Hiding from what you don’t know will bury you right beside your dreams and ideas. So embrace the things you don’t understand and study them. Achieving this understanding is what living your life is all about and when you receive negative feedback, just remember, it doesn’t matter how many people don’t get it, it matters how many do. There can be few who may incessantly suggest that the idea or dream as a whole is utterly ridiculous. Don’t get disappointed by such things, just keep working to prove yourself, to achieve your destination. As I’ve said before, if there was ever a moment to follow your heart and do something that matters to you, that moment is now. So when you feel you have something in your head then just go for it and put your all efforts to make it real! Remember, in pursuit of your dreams never forget to live your life; just do whatever you like and live your life to the fullest and keep exploring yourself and the world. 🙂
