Imagination and exposure to the world

This is part VI of our series on imagination.
We can only imagine if we continually make the effort to see and observe what goes on around us. The more we see, the more we can fill our mental tank and will be able to regurgitate later, sometimes in a surprising and unexpected fashion, some of the elements that come across us during the times we're awake and participating into our daily life.

I don't believe isolation and detachments make good partners to imagination. Instead, we need to be actively living and participating into what surrounds us. Sure, quiet times are necessary, but we always need to seek the new and the unusual in order to add to and renew our potential reserves of new idea. A productive imagination require an active participation!
