Description

"I wish you'd write all this down Robert. I can't keep it all in my head."
A number of my clients had urged me on like that. I would often dash off the response “It’s just so simple” before I realized that it was simple for me, but hidden in a kind of mental fog for them. That we create our individual experience from within is ‘just that simple’. But such a simple idea loads up most people with too much responsibility. We don’t mind making lunch, but we can mind a lot when it is suggested that we might be making the other events served up as our daily life.
Yet it seemed to me that any event was a bit like lunch. Prepared, chopped, mixed, flavored and all served up for us with hardly any awareness of the true nature
of the ingredients or their source.
Whatever is going on, remember that it happened from us first. If we don’t like the results then it will likely feel and appear to be happening to us.

IMAGINEERING is what happens! Don't fall for the great and ghastly story that life is an accident in a random universe in which you are helpless.
Don't buy into the fairy tale where the only power resides outside you and beyond your call. That creative power is personal and is always within your immediate reach.
There are only a few fundamentals involved in being human and alive on the planet. It doesn’t really matter which letter is sewn to our tee shirt, scribbled beside our birth date or fretted about in the media. You can be a triple ‘X’, you can ask 'Y’ or be a ‘Zed’ head.
All generations are looking for the same things no matter how varied they appear.
A wise teacher once told me "everyone just needs to be healthy, horny and happy”. Well anyway... it seemed to be very wise when I heard it as a young man.
Then as time passed I actually saw that each of these ideas was primarily the same. They were each a question of energy and awareness.
When we are lacking in energy real health eludes us. If we don’t feel natural desires and drives then we must be some kind of weird Saint,
or deluded and divided within.
Of course if we have not achieved ‘healthy’ and ‘horny’ then there’s a good chance that what we have achieved is ‘unhappiness’.
We are all creative individuals first and last. I hope this book will help you reach inside and take hold of your gift deliberately and use it to your great advantage.

Prologue

I wish you'd write all this down Robert. I can't keep it all in my head.

A number of my clients had urged me on like that. I would often dash off the response It’s just so simple before I realized that it was simple for me, but hidden in a kind of mental fog for them. That we create our individual experience from within is ‘just that simple’. But such a simple idea loads up most people with too much responsibility. We don’t mind making lunch, but we can mind a lot when it is suggested that we might be making the other events served up as our daily life. Yet it seemed to me that any event was a bit like lunch. Prepared, chopped, mixed, flavored and all served up for us with hardly any awareness of the true nature of the ingredients or their source.

I first wrote IMAGINEERING in 1996. It was a self-published effort that did well for me. It seems like a good time right now to revise, recast and extend these ideas because these ideas and the understanding of how we bring about our personal reality are still relevant and important to so many in these heady times. So I decided to knuckle down, march into the fog and see what I could do.

There are only a few fundamentals involved in being human and alive on the planet. It doesn’t really matter which letter is sewn to our tee shirt, scribbled beside our birth date or fretted about in the media. You can be a triple ‘X’, you can ask 'Y’ or be a ‘Zed’ head. All generations are looking for the same things no matter how varied they appear. A wise teacher once told me everyone just needs to be healthy, horny and happy

Well anyway… it seemed to be very wise when I heard it as a young man.

Then as time passed I actually saw that each of these ideas was primarily the same. They were each a question of energy and awareness.

When we are lacking in energy real health eludes us. If we don’t feel natural desires and drives then we must be some kind of weird Saint,

or deluded and divided within.

Of course if we have not achieved ‘healthy’ and ‘horny’ then there’s a good chance that what we have achieved is ‘unhappiness’.

The answers to the big ‘questions’ of life have been ruminated, pondered on and fought over for eternity. Yet there is a simplicity going on minute to minute in our daily lives that we can understand and use. It can be employed by us to effortlessly become healthy, horny and happy.

I have called this simple activity Imagineering. Imagineering happens! I have used my own life experiences to illustrate in this little book the natural performance of Imagineering. It is an ability with which, from birth, we are all gifted. Imagineering happens! We use this mental activity all the time consciously, or more probably all unawares. Our results are for the better or the worse depending entirely on the experience that we are imagining and acting out.

Shaking the Tree

When I was growing up, the best bottom line answer as to what you could finally expect out of life was ‘what will be will be’. That was it...

I can still recall my mum wandering around the place singing ‘Que sera, sera’. That about summed it up. It seemed that there wasn’t a lot you could do about it. Dame fortune apparently dealt the cards. She either smiled or frowned on you.

With that as a bottom line, my young friends and I had to accept the way we found ourselves in our early life. Pretty well ‘up against it’ is how we would put it. We were an unsophisticated bunch. Earthy, but shrewd, we were still quite able to acquire straightforward tools for dealing with life.

For instance, in one of our back yards there was an apricot tree. Now this tree seemed huge to us and it truly was ridiculously large for an apricot. Each year by late spring, out on the end of the foliage and branches was a bonanza of fruit. Of course like nearly every thing in our young life, it was out of reach. But we had our ways and eagerly looked forward to the time when the apricots were ‘on’. One day after school, in the height of the season, when our appetite was bigger than the tree, a few of us stood beneath it with a great, sensual longing for fruit. But only an idiot would climb out that far, so... we talked Dennis into it... and up he went!

Well, it seemed only a moment before Dennis was lying on his belly in Mrs. Grant’s spinach. I still regret that I was looking the wrong way...

Anyhow, the thin branches of the plum tree were easy to reach and must have hurt a lot judging by Dennis’s noise as his mother struck fresh sense into our little mate with one of them. Something that she was saying though, struck the rest of us.

"Why don’t ya [whack] shake th’ bloody tree [swish]

Don’t try t’ climb, [slice] jus’ shake th’ bloody tree."

After Dennis stopped shaking, we thought we’d have a go. According to Dennis, ‘he was buggered if he was going up there again’. Luckily, his brother was quite hefty, so Grunty agreed to go up and stamp on a branch for us. Such wisdom resides in the older generation. Grunty stamped and it rained apricots. Even Mrs. Grant smiled. She took some inside to ‘stew up’.

Over the next few years, we kids would often get a belly laugh out of recalling when Dennis fell on his mum’s vegies. I don’t know
