The transcendental mind

Mind, as viewed in the creativity perspective, is seen as a property of consciousness which remembers what consciousness experiences and characterize what we experience based on the beliefs mind has and what it chooses to remember. In many ways mind is a lens or a filter through which our awareness views or perceives the experience we have. We believe what we perceive when in actually, we are biased by the filter or the lens.

Four minds (Top)

As a property of consciousness/Consciousness, there are four minds we can discuss which lie within us.

The mind of the consciousness within, or behind Creation: There is the Mind that corresponds to the consciousness within, or behind, Creation. Through the illusion of Creation and as discussed in the Creation Story for the Creativity Perspective, this mind created an illusion to seemingly shatter itself into and infinite number of individual points of consciousness. As an individuated point of consciousness we are a unique aspect of this consciousness and can awake to the illusion of mind and the illusion of Creation to a full awareness of this consciousness with, or behind, Creation..

The transcendental mind: Each point of consciousness is an aspect of the original consciousness. Each point of consciousness is what the consciousness within, or behind, Creation uses to experience its creation/Creation. Each point of consciousness always is, and always was, a unique aspect of the consciousness within, or behind, Creation. What dies or transform is its interpretation of who and what it is. The interpretations made by the awareness of consciousness as to who or what it is gives rise to the creation it experiences. That interpretation is based on what the awareness has experienced and choose to believe about itself.

Each point of consciousness is capable of awakening to the awareness of the whole. Or, each point is capable of experiencing creation/Creation and a unique, separate, independent consciousness and a world unto itself and/or is capable of sharing a reality with another point of consciousness or even becoming a creation within an existing creation. The collections of experiences this independent point of consciousness has gives rise to a second mind. Since the collection of these experiences transcends any one experience, this mind can be called the transcendental mind.

The transcendental mind is what many would call the permanent record of all our experiences we have ever had as an individual points of consciousness. The transcendental mind allows our awareness to see all that it has ever experienced. It is within this transcendental aspect of mind we can understand the intention for our life.

Our current mind: As a human being, we are an independent point of consciousness which has chosen for one reason or another to have an experience as a human being in Physical Creation. Our problem as a human being is that the human physical experience causes is to think our mind is only what we have experienced in this life. Most humans will deny the existence of their transcendental mind even if they have clear memories of an existence outside our current life. Additionally, we do not always embrace all the experiences we have in our life. We interpret those experience based on what we have come to think and believe. If we do not have a context for understanding an experience, we will deny the experience as real. In any case, whatever we believe gives rise to our current mind. That is, what we think and believe as a result of the experiences we have had in our current life.

Although we do not realize it because of the illusion of mind and the illusion of Creation, our true mind is really the composite of the mind of the consciousness which lies within, or behind, Creation, a transcendental mind and our current mind. However, there is a fourth mind, the enculturated mind.

The enculturated mind: As a human being, most of us are not taught to embrace the truth of our being and/or to know truth within. Rather, we are taught to perceive and interpret our experience through our society and its culture. We are enculturated to think and believe one way over any other way including what is true for us and our own truth.

The enculturated mind is what we have come to think and believe as a result of the interpretation of the experiences we have had based on our culture. What this means is that whatever we experience we interpret not based on the truth of our being. Rather, we interpret it based on what our culture and society says. This, in turn, often causes us to deny the truth of our own experiences as a result of how we interpret our experiences based on our culture.

For practical purposes, current mind and enculturated mind can be used interchangeably. Technically, they are very different. As we begin to awaken and become aware of the depth and breadth of our being, current mind takes on a completely new meaning and we come to see how limited our enculturated mind really is. .

The goal in experiencing mind (Top)

In reality, any individualized point of consciousness has only one mind. That is, mind is the collection of the experiences of that individual point of consciousness. However, because our consciousness can be experienced as aware and awake or asleep and unaware, we live in the illusion of mind which gives rise to experiencing a mind much less than what mind really is.

From a creativity perspective, the goal is to live with a mind reflective of the individualized point of consciousness that we are. Here we become a conscious creator and the consciousness within, or behind, Creation experiencing Its Creation. We become consciousness at play. There is no reason to purse a Cosmic Consciousness as discuss in the topic, "Cosmic Consciousness." for all that does is put us back to the beginning of the "Creation Story for the Creativity Perspective," - a consciousness alone with no one with whom to play.

It needs to be remembered, the masculine aspect is reflected in our thinking and symbolized by the mind and what mind wants. The feminine aspect of Creation is the flow of energy within our being and what we feel, symbolized in the heart. When we localize our awareness in the body we can feel through our body and our being. When we localize our awareness in what we think and believe, we experience some aspect of mind. If we focus on all our experiences and what we feel in those experiences we open the door to experiencing the transcendental mind and the energy which gives rise to our life. When we focus on the experiences of this life, without or without the awareness of feeling we enter our current mind. When confine ourselves to the programming given to us in this life and what our society believes we enter the enculturated mind. When We need to move from the view and perspective of the enculturated mind to what we are feeling in our bodies we open the door to move into and through our current mind and eventually into our transcendental mind.

Consciousness creates as a result of what it holds in mind. As a human being in Physical Creation, we are experiencing a creation/Creation. This means that there is a transcendental mind, a mind which transcends the creation we experience, that gave rise to both Physical Creation, ourselves and what we experience in Creation. Some call this transcendental mind God, but that is not necessarily the case. It is just a mind that transcends the existing creation and it is possible there are three transcendental minds. There is the mind which created Physical Creation, a mind which created us, and a mind which created the other in our life. In any case the mind what created us resides and/or is accessible from with each of us.

In the creative process, mind interjects itself in the flow path of our creative life energy to redirect that energy to create an experience of what we think and believe. The transcendent mind interjects itself in between the flow path of the manifestation our creative life energy and the Source of our being. In this regard, what we call our creative spirit arises from the transcendental mind. Although we each are an individual point of consciousness, we assume an identity based on the experiences we have had. As a human being, our creative spirit has a desire which arise from the transcendental mind and are found in the intention for our life. However, as a creative spirit outside of mind, what our creative spirit really seeks is freedom, true freedom to creatively express itself in any creation.

Our body and its environment of birth, both in time and place is the product of our transcendental ego and that state of our being at the time of incarnation. These conditions existed before we formed our current mind and developed an idea about who we think we are in this life based on our current life experiences. When we return to that state of being in which we entered life, we access the most powerful creative state we can enter in our life. To enter this most creative state of being with which we came into life is to enter a childlike playful creative state. When we enter this state of childlike play we also enter a state were we can live the intention for our incarnation. Aligning with the intention for our life is to align the source of our creative power in the life we experience. It is a state of spontaneous and innocent childlike play.

Once we are aligned with the intention for our life, we then have the choice of living that intention, changing that intention or going further back into our programming and transcend that intention. If we begin to shed the transcendental ego which created the intention for our life we can change the intention for our life. It is at this point of being we access our unlimited creativity for we stand at the point to create any reality we wish while in our body.
