The imagination, like all things, has its place. It is beneficial and harmful. It is incredibly useful when playing in the Fields of The Lord, Maya, the Tonal Reality. It has no place in the examination of the mind, reality, thisness. Like all things it is a contextual tool. The pathless path is just that, pathless, which implies a lack of definition. Imposing definitions in order to clarify the inexplicable only leads one in the opposite direction. Perhaps it is better to sit with not knowing.
