Imagination has the creative task of making symbols, joining things together in such a way that they throw new light on each other and on everything around them. The imagination is a discovering faculty, a faculty for seeing relationships, for seeing meanings that are special and even quite new.

Thomas Merton in Contemplation in a World of Action by Thomas Merton


To Practice This Thought:
Look around and focus on two objects or people. Using your imagination, establish a relationship between the two.
