Deliberate Creation

Saturday, April 7th, 2012

DeliberateCreation

First you have a thought. Usually, a creation thought is prefaced with a “what if” type of question. “What if” I had that job, object, situation, person, etc. Once you have the thought, you then have an emotional reaction to the thought, and if it’s a “positive” emotion, then the thought becomes a desire. Now it’s a “I want that” thought. With a positive desire, it becomes the idea of “I want to see, touch, taste, smell, or feel” this new thing. Basically, you are saying you want to experience it. Conversely, if you have a “negative” emotional reaction, then the thought becomes repellent. Now it’s a “I don’t want that” thought, and “I don’t want to experience it”.

The interesting thing is that both types of thought, and the emotional reactions to the thoughts, begin the creation process. This is where a lot of people get confused as to how the creation process works. They believe that only good and wanted things get created. If that were true, no one would ever have anything “bad” or “negative” happen to them. Creation, Source, God; whatever name you like, doesn’t care which end of the stick you choose. It only knows that a choice has been made, and that energy is now being moved to create whatever has been thought and felt about.

Energy is mutable. It changes shape constantly. We may not notice the change, as our perception does not have the capacity to “see” the various vibrations, but the changes are happening, nonetheless. When we have a desire, whether to bring something to us, or to push something away from us, we are calling on the energy to move into that form. As an example, if you’ve seen the John Boorman movie “Excalibur”, you saw that Merlin uses the “Charm of Making” spell for both “beneficial” and “harmful” purposes. The charm, or energy, simply follows the desire of the one doing the creating.

Deliberate Creation is the act of consciously acknowledging the movement of energy and consciously “directing” it to become what you desire. By having this understanding, you can let go of creating “negative” experiences by grounding out any “negative” emotions the moment you have them, making the deliberate choice to feel better in this moment, and to choose to look at things wanted, and not things unwanted. When you look at things that yourself and others call “accidents”, that is direct evidence of non-deliberate creation. That is non-focused energy being created and then experienced. We have all done this many times in our lives. The good news, is that we can use the fact that we have had these experiences, even though we consider them “negative” experiences, and show ourselves that we can create, and create pretty quickly.

Here’s an example of what I mean by this. You have a negative emotion about something. Let’s say, you’re worried about keeping your job. You think about it all the time. ‘Are they going to let me go?’, ‘Am I doing good enough for them to keep me?’, ‘I don’t think the supervisor likes me.’, etc. The next thing you know, they have handed you a pink slip, and you’re out of work. This type of creation happens with relationships, at school, with our families, basically in every area of our life. By stopping and then letting go of the negative thoughts and emotions when they come up, you begin to train yourself out of having those thoughts and feelings.

Fortunately, you can start creating from a “positive” energy stance right now, even if you still have “negative” thoughts come up. Because you are allowing yourself to be aware that you are having these thoughts that are creating things you don’t want, you can shift the energy and thereby shift the thought and the emotion. You do this by noticing you’re having a “negative” thought and emotion and then asking yourself, “What do I really want?” You’ve just had the thought of what you don’t want, so now think of the opposite of that. Think about the positive aspect of the situation, and let that be the new focus. Think, and then feel how good it is going to be to have that new situation the way you want it to be.

So let’s go back to the job example and change the thoughts. Coming from a positive stance, you now think to yourself, “I’m glad they are keeping me on here. I like this job.” and “I feel really good about the job that I am doing, and am happy that I can do it well.” and “Whether the supervisor likes me or not doesn’t matter. I do my job very well, and they have only good things to say about my performance.” With these “positive” thoughts and accompanying emotions, you are now deliberately creating what you want. When you transfer this concept to every part of your life, and for everything you want and want to accomplish, you create the life you want fully and completely.

Write down all the details of all the things and experiences that you want. Whenever a negative thought comes up, go over your list and allow that positive emotion to flow back into yourself again. You have the choice in each moment how you feel and what you allow yourself to think. Think and feel positively, and create deliberately. =)

Welcome to the Second Level: Part 3

Wednesday, July 1st, 2009

Today I want to talk with you about an interesting level of duality. So what do I mean by interesting? Well, so far in my previous posts on duality (here and here), we’ve looked at the either/or nature of duality and how we have to deal with one or the other. Now, I want to get into two areas where the duality is not so cut and dry. Where the duality is more of a perception than an actuality.

Action and Non-action

At first, these appear to be like any other type of duality that we deal with. It’s when you look deeper into what is really going on that you then see that something is different here. Something has definitely changed with respect to the either/or concept. Let me give you an example. If you are running, that is an action. If you stop running, that too is an action and you could say that it’s a non-action because you are no longer in the act of running. While that is true in the sense that you are not running, it is not true in the sense that you are no longer taking action.

This is where it gets into deeper territory on a metaphysical level. When you look at it from this level, you see that everything we do is an action. No matter how you want to phrase it, or look at it or conceive of it, everything is an action. There is, in fact, no time at which we are not in the process of being in an action. This is where the bonds of duality start to slip. There is no up/down, in/out type of duality when talking about action. There is only the single face of it. By understanding this concept, it gives us the ability to see deeper into who and what we are, and to realize that all we do is action. So, where does this action come from?

To Be, Or Not To Be

While that’s not necessarily the question (apologies to the Bard) it does bring us to another level of concept where duality goes sideways. The concept is choices and decisions and the ones we make. Just like with actions, at first it appears to have duality insofar as we either decide (choose) do to something or not. However, once we again look deeper into it we find that everything we do is based on a choice/decision and even when we choose/decide not to do something, we still have made a choice/decision.

We cannot escape making decisions. Ever. Indeed, while the choices we make will have the concept of duality embedded in them (all choices are basically either/or choices) we cannot stop making choices and decisions. Just like action, decision-making is never ending. There is only one side to it. Can you see what I mean by this? Do you start to get some of what this implies as to how we can live our lives in a clearer way?

You see, to be or not to be actually is the question. Because everything is your choice and your actions are dictated by those choices and decisions, by acknowledging that you are in a constant state of deciding and action taking, your personal responsibility for yourself comes to the forefront. Once you realize this and that you are indeed the master of your life, you can now make better decisions, and consequently, take better actions that will help you to become better in all aspects of your life.

Making A Positive Choice

Sit in meditation and look at your decisions and the actions that you’ve taken. Do this as neutrally as possible and simply see how you have made certain choices and done certain things. There is no right or wrong here and definitely no blame. There is only what is. Notice how many of your decisions were made from a negative emotional space and how many were from a positive space. See how the ones that came from the positive space have benefited you greatly and how the ones made from the negative space have been anywhere from annoying to truly devastating.

When you look at these decisions and actions from this neutral space, you see that you are the only creator in your life. You see how you are the only one who can make a decision or take an action for yourself from whatever emotional stance you wish. Now you can become a truly aware architect of your life. May you choose wisely. =)

Bright Blessings.
