Many of us on initial contemplation, presume the imagination as an ability to fulfil our dreams, desires and fantasies, but like vulnerable prey unaware of its stalker hidden within the jungle, we are often consumed and taken by the Darkside of creativities prolific raw nature.
And like a predator, imagination shows no mercy for weakness or vulnerability devouring its kill slowly, whilst staring deep into the souls of its victim, hypnotised by its own ignorance.
This is the way of the jungle which is awareness taking many illusionary forms within the imagination, that as the traveller ventures through its realms by misguidance or bravery will learn to appreciate and respect, not only its beauty but also the characteristics of its preditors, which themselves have an aspect of obscure beauty, for this the duality and mystery of consciousness.
Not attributing the wonder of creativity with the dark, obscure, and dangerous means that minds will be seized upon when travelling through ungoverned destinations of mind without knowing what awaits them.
Ill-equipped minds that if not captured, flee at slightest rustle of trees, unfamiliar with the creatures that dwell there, that at first glance are fearsome in appearance, but are elaborate creatures of the jungle that if the mind is brave enough to encounter and endure, are illusions given strength and authority to animate fear, and thus that fear consumes and intimidates its observer who knows not, what lay beyond and within the dark side of their own imagination
