Bear with me, for some new background material is necessary here. All physical matter exists first as an idea or mental image. The idea or mental image has its own reality, and is charged with energy, and this energy can never be withdrawn. You only accept data when it appears within the physical camouflage system. As you know this severely limits your conception of the real.
We are making some simplified statements here to make the idea clear. Data, valid data, which is not materialized as physical form, at any given time still exists as potential physical form. Some such data will be materialized in your future, as for example plans existing only in the mind will later be carried out and utilized within physical form.
Some such data will never be utilized. Some such data will be utilized time and time again. Now, you see, the energy does not reside within any given physical object, but in the idea form that is within it. Physical objects do not exist as such in a basic manner. You can only perceive large areas of reality data however by transforming it into terms that can be picked up by the physical senses.
As you know, you create or construct all physical matter. What you see are your own constructions. This does not mean however that there is not something within or behind what you perceive. All thoughts are composed of energy, and from our discussion you realize that there are electrical intensities within whose range all reality exists.
Every thought therefore has this kind of reality, which is the only reality, basically speaking. Sense data itself has a reality independent of any given object. This sense data has its own intensity. If you can tune into the intensity, so to speak, you will automatically translate it into physical data, and you will perceive a physical object.

“We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having (creating) a human experience.” – Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
Instead of money, power and privilege, wouldn’t love, truth and joy be a better measures of success? One set of values isolates us in the material world of separation, scarcity and competition, while the other, not only acknowledges our oneness as well as our individuality, it acknowledges our role in creation itself. Using love, truth and joy to measure success provides us with a moral compass. It encourages us to live for the love of Being and Creation, instead of running from the fear of poverty, suffering and death. It inspires us to find and express what’s best in us and ALL that we’re a part of, instead of giving in to the least of what we can be.
“How you define yourself and the world around you forms your intent, which, in turn, forms your reality.” – Seth
In other words, we create reality from what we choose to think and feel about ourselves and All That Is.
If we don’t consciously choose our beliefs, we unconsciously absorb them from our surroundings.
If the ideas we accept as beliefs, attitudes, values and expectations create our reality, can we afford not to question them?
The more we love and understand ourselves, the better we treat ourselves.
What do we want most for our children, ourselves and the world?
The secrets of the universe lie hidden in the shadows of your experience. Look for them!
Affirm what you believe!
