One of my favorite spiritual writer T.Lobsang Rampa in his book 'Wisdom of the Ancients' said about imagination:
Imagination is the picturing of one's desires or one's fears, and imagination is the greatest force of all, greater than will-power, some say greater than love. It is an old lore of psychologists that in any battle between the will and imagination, the imagination always wins, and if we try to conquer imagination by brute will-power will cause a neurotic condition. There cannot be love without imagination. In passing, it needs rather more than just animal passion to keep two people in harmony. If the imagination says that one shall not do such -and-such a thing, than, no matter how strong the will, a person cannot do it. If you want to get results you will have to control your imagination so that it and friend will-power work together in harmony.
