Imagination is a gift of God to every individual. Why did God provide us with the power of imagination? May be because you haven’t seen the god in real life, you usually imagine him. So, statues or pictures in temples, churches, mosques and other religious places are some of the important places where you start faithful imagination. It means imagination reflects in our daily life.
Today, I’m going to talk about the reflection of imagination. Our daily life reflects in our imagination and imagination reflects in our daily life.
I’ll cover this topic in six points, these are:
In life, it matters a lot, how you recognise yourself. If someone tells me to fight with a bull, what should I do? I’ll not accept his invitation because I’m not so much physically strong. A bull can easily take over me. Even, I don’t want to fight with a puppy who is looking for someone to use his sharp teeth. I recognise myself, as a simple boy who wants to live his life peacefully with his friends and family. I’m interested in the study of problems and issues in society. Imaginary fiction can revolutionise the world of modern literature. I love literature because it helped me to develop my vision. It increased my understanding of reality, its challenges and the importance of love in life. I’m a learner.
To recognise your art of imagination you have to study it. Let’s start…
We all represent an age group. An individual behaves in the manner people of his/her age behave. As our age increasing with time, our thoughts are also changing. Our age reflects in our imagination and creative thinking.
What are those things people generally imagine in their daily life? A child’s imagination is different from the imagination of an old person. Because the child has just started his life, on the other hand, the old person has completed a long journey. That’s why old people are good at telling stories. If you have old people in your house please listen to them. Some of them lose the will to enjoy their life. Inspire them to imagine a peaceful life for themselves. You can also ask them to write short motivational stories.
Our age reflects in our dreams and imaginations. There are similarities and contrasts between the imagination of two people of the same age. How you’ll look like in your old age?

Humans attract towards the opposite gender. This attention is normal in various forms, such as if a woman travelling in a bus carrying a baby and a man sitting beside her then he offer his seat to the woman. Saying, “ Hello mam, please sit here, I am almost reached my bus stop ”.
Young boys and girls imagine each other in their dreams. They imagine their future life. I’m also one of them. I like to hear my favourite movie don’t while sleeping. Imagination is creation of an image or picture in your mind. Better you imagine your understanding and observation skills will increase.
We have a perception of recognising a person as a male and female. And we ignore the third gender. These minor people face hate and violations because of their gender and sex. We should recognise ourselves as humans. We know that a male also has some characteristics of a female. But yeah! By his look and behaviour, it is clear that he is a male. No doubt, in the study of imagination gender is an important point.

We need a place to build something. We use land to cultivate crops or to build a house or to construct a stadium for Olympic games. If we talk about creative thinking, our mind canvas is a place where we grow our imagination. To make a painting you have to choose theme of a village or a urban area.
A city or a village? If you are from a village you dream of a wonderful city where you can get world-class facilities and luxuries. You can imagine a happy life in the city because your village does not have enough resources. On the other hand if you belongs to a cosmopolitan city, you find city life difficult because of too much crowd and noise. Safety, job and survival are some of the important issues in the city. COVID-19 has taught a new lesson to big cities.
The world is changing rapidly, our thinking and imagination are also changing with it.
Imagine a village life which is very beautiful, close to nature and you can live a happy life there instead of the city’s busy life. The village has lots of fields and greenery, you can read an interesting book sitting under the tree. You can learn more about local culture and write a book or a blog on it.
So, a place reflects in our imagination. How do you imagine heaven or hell?

Our life is a time, we call it “lifetime”. Our childhood has a time, we call it “childhood time”. Our school has a time, we call it “school time” and our college has a time, we call it “college time”.
Time is an interesting and debatable topic. Recognise and use it. Flow with the time. Gain values. The concept of time and its function gives direction to our daily life. The time we see is a mathematical calculation. Our memories are precious. Draw a painting based on your memories and hang it one your bedroom wall or click the photo and make it your smartphone/laptop wallpaper. Humans are always curious to predict the future. Time travel based stories empower creative and critical thinking.
Nighttime is the best time to dream because everyone else sleeps at that time. I have read this quote somewhere in my 12th board class. I am not an owl but certainly, I love reading books, working on ideas in the nighttime because there is no noise, no disturbance. The night provides you favourable circumstances to work. You can imagine beautiful stories in the night. Watch outside sky full of uncountable stars and the moon. Stargazing can make you an astronaut, an astrologer or an author (like me).

Interest has a feature or value which attract the people towards it. We all have different tastes and interest.
I imagine a world complexion of physical geography (nature) and modern technology. The design of such a world will be based on these two features. However, nature connection is my priority. Means nature has its own rules and functions, modernity and technology are good at some level. But I never recommend converting the whole earth into a factory. Why can’t we control and manage our population before saying goodbye to an old person?
Discover your interest. What motivates you to think? What increases your curiosity? Can you live your life with it? You should think about it, understand it better and in the deep.

We have been controlled and trained to think in the same way. We are not against anyone but why can’t we promote new ideas? What about the aeroplane, if Leonardo da Vinci or the Wright brothers haven’t imagined it, we all are using a tattu (pet animal) for travelling.
It may be beneficial for travel bloggers because they’ll get a chance to observe the people deeply instead of clicking their photos.
Believe in yourself, which means believe your abilities, your mistakes, your character and your learning. Increase your abilities by increasing the space and limit of your mind. Develop a healthy environment around you. Developing a strong belief is recommended if you want to visit the world of imagination, otherwise, you’ll lose yourself.
So, this is for today guys. We have discussed the role of age, gender, place, belief & interest in the study of imagination. Take your time and think about it. If you have any queries, ask me in the comment section. Have a good day. Good luck!
