The creative life energy that
animates our life is a continuous flow of energy. It flows within a
set of the boundaries much like the banks of a river established by
who we think we are and how we have defined ourselves. These
boundaries channel the energy into a physical experience which
dissipates the energy in the experience in a way analogous to the
way the river flows into the ocean dissipating itself in the ocean.
If we are free to experience the experience as it arises the energy
will fully dissipate. If we are not free because of our mind
interjecting itself in some way, the energy becomes bound and we
have less energy available for the next creation. Over time we so
scatter and fragment our creative life energy in experiences that do
not truly serve us and memories that we cannot let go and are better
released that we do not have the energy to create something which
better serves us.
By changing how and what we believe and release that on which we
hold focus from the past , we can change how the energy flows into a
physical experience changing the type and kind of experience we will
have. What needs to be emphasized here is we will have a physical
experience. It is only a question of what kind of physical
experience we have because of what we believe.
To create something new in our life, we will need to create a new
channel to allow our energy to flow into a new physical experience.
To do that, we have to both change our beliefs to create the new
channel but we must also tithe some portion of our energy to what we
wish to manifest.
We have twenty-four hours a day of creative life energy at our
disposal. It is our choice how and where we will direct that energy.
Whenever we focus our attention and awareness into a belief or
activity, we are directing our creative life energy into manifesting
the intention behind why we hold that belief or way we engage in the
activity. The longer we focus our attention and awareness on
anything, the more energy you put into manifesting a physical
experience based on the focus we hold. In this regard, any though we
hold is given a portion of our creative life energy. The longer we
hold the thought, the more energy we give it and the greater the
influence it has in our life. The more passion we which we hold it,
a still greater energy is put into it and the greater the influence
it has. So it becomes vitally important to become aware of what we
think and where our energy is going for each thought we have is
getting some of our attention and awareness.
Tithing is about taking a portion of our creative life energy and
focusing it onto, or into, what we desire to create. Since we are
redirecting our already committed twenty-fours hours worth of
energy, something in our life must be sacrificed. So there will
always be a sacrifice in any creative endeavor we undertake. If we
are unwilling to pay the sacrifice, we will not create what we
desire. We may create it in some form but it will not reach its full
potential and possibility. Quite simply, by not allowing the
sacrifice as required by the creation, you did not nourish it in the
way it needed to be nourished.
Tithing is an ancient concept and it is said goes back to an ancient
king. There was a king that had a tremendously bountiful harvest. He
sold much of the harvest and had wonderful celebrations and feasts.
However, when spring came, he had no seed to plant new crops. So he
had to essentially bankrupt his treasury to buy seed for the spring
planting. Ever after that day, the king require a certain percentage
of the harvest be set aside for seed for the following spring. If we
wish to create something new in our life, we must tithe to it and to
the future we wish to create. We must direct some of our creative
life energy into creating what we desire. If we donít we will simply
be repeating the past
Exactly what our tithe looks like depends on what we desire to
create. As a minimum we can start some
daily practice that seems to work for us or we can create a
daily practice based on what we think we should do. We just canít
stay wedded to whatever daily practice we use. As we move into our
creative endeavor and begin to get that
minimum set of experience to create what we desire, we may find
that what we do is not what we need to do. Also, as we gain
experience we will find that we change and outgrow what we did in
the past. If we donít outgrow the practice with which we start in
some way, we are not growing and expanding into our creativity and
the creative power available to us.
