The Power of Imagination

Dr Frankl, a Jewish psychiatrist who survived the Auschwitz death camp, explains that his lifeline, which kept him sane during the dark days of suffering during the Holocaust, was the thought of re-uniting with his wife. At every possible opportunity he would imagine this reunion.

We have the ability to modify our circumstances, or at least to mitigate the sour feelings that result from a negative situation in which we find ourselves enmeshed. Our imagination can blow a breath of hope into an otherwise hopeless state of affairs, and that can change our entire outlook.
