The need to become lost
the need to become lost
Loss of focus
Our vehicle is too small
Sleep in the creation process
There are two way to experience
One way is to create something and sit back and observer or watch
the creation. This is much like a artist painting a picture then
looking at the picture.
The second way to create is to create something and then participate
and/or experience the creation. That is, to create a piece of music
and then perform the music or create a theatrical play and then
perform the play as an actor.
When we talk about Creation, many see God as the Creator of Creation
and sitting back and observing Its Creation. Although that may be
the case, the premise of Releasing Your Unlimited Creativity
material is that God has elected to participate in Its Creation. As
described in the
Creation Story for the Creativity Perspective, Consciousness
shattered Itself into an infinite number of fragments in order to
create a playmate of Its equal. We each are one of these fragments
destined to become a Creator fully equal to the Creator in every way
including losing ourselves in our own Creation.
Creation is about choosing to create.
Our birthright is to become the Creator. It is to come to the
awareness that Creation is “setup” or designed that it is
too much to believed that we are the creators of what we
experience and the reality of those experiences. It is designed this
way so that we can have an experience of our creation.
Why the need to become lost
As a consciousness in Creation, we
create a desired experience and then experience it. Or, maybe better
said, we both simultaneously create and experience our creation. Our
life is our create which we experience as we create it.
Our problem is that if we know we are creating what we experience
and we can change what we experience, we would not allow ourselves
to have the experience. If we remember exactly how we create what we
do, we will attempt to change the creation whenever there is an
aspect we may not enjoy. To have the experience of our creation, we
need to somehow forget we are the creator, forget how we created
what we experience and we need to become lost in our creation.
Probably the easiest way to understand this point is through an
example. Suppose we desire to have the experience of being lost in
something like a forest. We wish to know the feelings and what we
would think if we were truly lost. To have the experience of being
lost, we need to somehow lose ourselves with no hope of finding our
way out. If we know we have a way out of our situation, we would not
have the experience of becoming lost.
We must somehow totally forget how we created our situation or
even why we are there.
In a forest we would go deep into the forest such that no matter
what direction we traveled for as long as we traveled we would still
be deep in the forest. Additionally, we would make every tree and
all the brush look very much alike. There were be little noticeable
difference for us to have a reference point. The sun would never set
such that it always remained fixed exactly at the same spot
Now what needs to be realized that if we know we are lost to have
the experience of being lost, we would not feel we are totally lost.
We would know that we arranged it and have somehow set up a default
such that at some time in the future we will be rescued. To know
there is the hope of being rescued, we will not feel the true depth
and breadth of what it means to be totally lost. To feel lost, we
must become totally lost with no hope of finding our way out.
For the creator of any experience to have an experience of their
creation there is the need to forget and become lost in the
creation. The creator cannot experience being lost in their creation
unless they are lost with no hope of finding a way out. To truly
experience our creation as a creation we have to be in it and come
to think our creation is all that exists and we are forever trapped
in what we experience.
Hence our dilemma as a human being. Everything we experience in
Creation points to believing that we are our bodies and when we die
that is the end of everything. Most know of no one individual who we
have personally experienced that has come back. There is no real
“hard” evidence that reincarnation is the truth of reality. Few have
experiences in life that give them a true personal understanding and
experience of their mortality. Those that do, for example a near
death experience, it is argued it is only a creation of their
mind. Many religions and spiritual traditions have worked for
centuries trying find a way to give people a experience of their own
immortality. Meditation is popular but the ancient Egyptian method
of putting a person in a sarcophagus until they almost suffocate to
have a near death experience seems one of the more dramatic. Yet,
there still remains little evidence that the human is something more
that being born, live and die and that is the end of it.
But when we learn to look at our awareness, as in a
detached witness, we find something else. We find something that
does endure. It is this awareness that always persists no matter how
much the external world changes that gives rise to the view that
humans are a spirit that is having a physical experience.
But the point few come to realize is this awareness which persists
is a creator and it is simply the creator experiencing its creation
from within the creation. It is only when this awareness chooses to
create and become the creator that it begins to understand the
creative power inherent in its own thinking.
What needs to be understood here is that all we experience tells us
that we are not the creator of the experiences we have and the
reality of those experiences. That is, unless we look and observe
very carefully as that
detached witness. Then we can become to see we are the creator
of our experiences and we can even being to see how we do it. Then
with a little more observation, we can begin to see how we are the
creator of the reality of our experiences. Then with a bit more
observation we can being to see how we each are the Creator of all
To become the Creator, we need to choose to have that experience of
the Creator. Unless we choose for it to happen it will not happen.
Rather, we will remain lost in our
Creation is about learning to use our
to consciously create the reality of our choice. Unless we choose,
nothing will happen. We can wait for an eternity for
our birthright to be given to us and nothing will happen for we
already have it. We just don’t use it. We have to accept it and take
full responsibility for what we create. It is there we being to
access our true
creative powers/Creative Powers.
How we become lost (Top)
How we become lost in our creation
is accomplished in three primary ways. They are loss of focus, our
vehicle is too small and sleep in the creation process.
Loss of focus
One is to be continually distracted by the mundane and loss of
focus. That is we lose conscious focus and our
nonconscious mind, the
subconscious and unconscious mind, picks up the focus to create
the experiences we have. In some ways you can look at our conscious
mind choose to create a stage play. Our conscious mind begins by
choosing the stage the scenery and the props but then gets
distracted by all that is going on. Our unconscious mind holds us to
the stage on which we are going to have a play. The subconscious
mind arranges all the scenery and props on the stage our unconscious
mind chooses to hold us to. Our conscious mind then goes running
around experiencing all the scenery and props on the stage. Our
conscious mind has the ability to change the scenery and props on
the stage if it chooses do to so. Similarly our conscious mind has
the ability to take us off the stage and go to a completely
different stage. However, it is usually too preoccupied with running
around on stage responding to what is happening to realize it has
The antidote to this situation is to create a very
clear intention, hold it with a
single point focus and create some type and kind of experience,
initiation ritual, to
imprint our unconscious and subconscious on what we desire to
create. The imprinted experience will allow us to hold focus if and
mind becomes distracted by the mundane.
Our vehicle is too small
The second way we become lost is that we choose a vehicle for the
experience of creation which is limited in what can be perceived
from with that vehicle. That is, we have an experience of an
infinite creation but the vehicle we use only allows us to see a
small portion of that infinite creation in any one moment. Since we
can only see a small portion, we become distracted by all that is
available to experience and simply overwhelm our ability to take it
all in. This is the purpose of the
ego and the identity which we give ourselves. The ego gives us
an identity form which to experience any creation in which we choose
to enter. The issue is not our body or being physical. There is no
need to transcend the physical or the body. We need to transcend the
ego. The issue is the ego.
The antidote to this situation is to
step out of mind
and what we think and believe about how and what we are. We need to
step out of the identity which we have given to ourselves because of
the experiences we have had. It is to create something that seems
impossible to our
mind and the
ego will cause us to transcend our mind and our ego. As a human,
choosing to become the creator of the reality of our experiences and
choosing to recreate the world we experience through the use of our
intuitive guidance and the
infinity of our being will cause us to step out of mind and the
identity which we created based on the experiences of mind.
Sleep in the creation
Sleep, as best can be determined, is a natural process of
consciousness. The role of sleep in becoming lost in our creation
its to cause all of the memories of
transcendental mind and
to become mixed and hold exactly the same weight of important unless
we have bound emotional energy with those memories. Sleep causes all
our memories to be confused with what our creative imagination can
create such that we can question whether or not what we remember is
real or simply something our imagination created.
This role of
sleep can be seen by simply looking and going to sleep one night
and awakening the next morning. When we awake, we can think back
over the day before we went sleep and see what we remember. Then we
can think about a day a week, a month, a year earlier and see what
we remember about that particular day and any experience on that
day. Unless there is a strong emotional attachment, the memories are
experienced the same way. We can’t really tell them apart. The
memory and experience we had a week, month or year ago could have
occurred yesterday from a memory view point. Similarly, we could
have just imagined we had that experience or we could have had a
dream that seems as though it was a real experience in our past.
The issue here is once we have an experience and it goes into memory
everything we experienced, imagined and dreamed gets mixed together
and, without strong emotional attachment or clear reference points
in the physical world, we don’t really know what are real
experiences. A real experiences looks same as the memory of a
simulated experience from a
metatheater, or the memory of dream or imaginary experience. In
essence we don’t know what is real.
This is in essence what the Buddha faced in becoming enlightened.
When he faced the daemons which arose within his being, he
continually touched the ground to remember what was real and what
was arising form within his own being. What is real is what we feel.
The flow of energy within our being that we feel is real. In this
regard, the memory we have, no matter what we remember, is simply
mind characterized the energy of a thought or memory based on
the experiences we have had. What mind presents is not real. The
energy mind is attempting to characterize is what is real.
The antidote to this situation is to realize two things. One is that
our creative life energy molds itself into an experience of where we
focus our attention and awareness. The second things is that all our
memories are in one being pool that are used by our
mind to characterize what we experience. The memories which
energetically correspond to what we are experiencing arise in
response to the composite intention we hold. Any intention we hold
is a focus of our attention and awareness and that focus will cause
the energy within our being to flow in that direction or toward that
end. All our conscious and
nonconscious intentions total to provide an overall direction
for our life. In any one moment one intention may dominate our life
but, overall, it is the composite which determined what we
experience in life.
The memories energetically matched with what we experience arise to
characterize what we experience. All we need to do is create a very
clear intention for what we wish to access and make it our
dominate intention. It will then surface energetically the memories
most aligned or related to that intention. Using this process, we
can surfaced the cause for the experiences we are having. That is,
there is a process we used to become lost in our creation. We can
pull the string and “reverse engineer” the process to understand
the cause. Similarly, we can use this same process to determine how
to proceed to create what we desire.
clear intention with
creative play as close as possible to the
most creative state of being is probably the fastest and easiest
way to either (1) understand why we experience what we do and access
the root cause and/or (2) to determined the best way to act to
create what we desire.
