The real power of metatheater is that it provide a way to see the illusion of mind and the perception mind has created based on the experiences it has had. The theory is quite simple.

The reality we think we experience is often only an illusion for we do not always see or know the real truth of what is occurring. We live in an illusion about reality and how we think. We live in reality and respond to the world we experience based on a perception mind has created based on the experiences we have had. We response to the truth of what is before us in the illusion of mind.

Whenever we are faced with a situation, we overlay one of the response patterns to life we developed. In doing so, we do not see reality for what it is but rather we see what our response pattern tells us about what we experience. We respond to the truth of what is in any experience of, or in Creation, based on what we think and believe. We believe we experience Creation when in reality we are only experience what we think and believe. Hence, the statement, mind is an illusion for how it perceives reality is not real but filtered and biased by what it believes

If we create an illusion, a theatric performance of some type, and we allow ourselves to respond to our role or part in that performance as if it were real, we respond to the created illusion with the truth of mind. In that truth we can see the illusion of mind. We would be showing the reality within our being and how we perceive the world. We would see the illusion created by our mind.

The way we do this is to creates an external experience and then responds to that creation as if it is real. By creating an imaginary world or an imaginary space through our creativity perspective, we can explore any and all aspects of a given topic. Since the experience is created, we will they see how we are perceiving our experiences and be able to see the filters we are using to color the experiences that we have. However, what we feel is real and is the reality we experience.

If we create a theatrics, an illusionary experience of creation that does not reflect the truth of what is, we will response to what is created based on what we think and believe. In that response, we can see the truth of mind. How we response and feel as to what the imaginary creation presents will allow is to bring those feelings back into the real world and understand what we believe about any topic and how our creative life energy is or is not free to flow. In the awareness of the illusion we carry, we can change it.

Although we would experience an illusion, a play acted out which was created, we would respond based on the reality within our being. The information that surfaces can be quite revealing for it is telling us how we respond to any situation in life that is similar. What we begin to see is that what we are experiencing in life is not necessarily the reality of what is actually happening but rather our perception of what is happening. However, until we see how we are responding to what happens, we can never transcends that reality within our own being.

By varying the theatrics, we can surface whatever aspect we wish to explore. This is the essence and whole basis of metatheater for surfacing the nonconscious influences and filters in our creative endeavors. This may be frightening and cause us to withdrawal from the experience we are creating. In any case, as we begin to see and understand the filters we have, we can begin to see the reality of what is, as it is.

Meta-theater can be used to reveal any aspect of our being that we chose. Meta-theater can be most powerful where we have a pattern in our life and we donít really know or understand how we have created that pattern. Thorough a series of well designed theatrical performances that approach the issue from a variety of angles and perspectives we can pin point exactly what type and kind of situation triggers the response or what angle of approach is most sensitive. In accessing this information, we are then free to explore the cause behind that response.

For example, we get angry whenever someone seem to tell us what to do as to how we should live our life. If we stage a few theatrical performances where we experience different situations and or different types and kinds of people telling us what to do, we will quickly see what situation and which type and kind of person elicits the most powerful response. That then become the key to exploration of why is it that this situation and this type and kind of person triggers the response that it does. Often the metatheater will cause memories of the past to surface what is giving rise to our response. However, it is also not uncommon for these kinds of situation where there is no obvious experience in this lifetime to trigger what many describe as the past life memory. It is quite fascinating to see how much of our personality has nothing to do with the experiences of this lifetime.

For some, meta-theater performances are an enjoyable form of entertainment to see what one has buried deep within their being. Obviously the more the meta-theater can be done and allowing oneself to surrender to the role in the spontaneous innocence of child like play the more enjoyable and revealing it can be.
