Creation is the process of making the unknown, known, the invisible, visible, creating order out of chaos and making sense out of nonsense.
Excerpt #1 from We Create Our Own Reality:
The challenge of being and creation is learning how to use the power of thought and imagination to shape energy of ideas into a pleasing reality. The prize is a sense of satisfaction, the feeling of a job well done. Like learning how to walk or talk, it is a personal, subjective endeavor that requires creative aggression. It is a great balancing act that makes falling part of learning how to stand.
What do you do when you feel an itch? You scratch it, don’t you? When you feel cold, hungry, thirsty, frightened or lonely, what do you do? You look for a way to alleviate each condition. If it’s the first itch or feeling of being cold, hungry, or thirsty, you start looking for ways to satisfy those needs. Isn’t that true? During this process of living, loving, learning and evolving, don’t you routinely make what was once unknown, known and a working part of your life?
In the beginning, for Nothing-Something to evolve beyond the level of meaningless flashes of awareness and action, it had to overcome limitation or challenge. Keep in mind that for us to discuss something that happened at the Birth of Consciousness, we must play the role of Psychic Detective and speculate/intuit/feel what it was like for Aware Energy, or Consciousness, in the beginning. As Beings of Aware Energy, we may actually have something meaningful to say about the beginning of All That Is since we were there in the “Beginning” too. We must also not forget that the Beginning is present in each new moment we experience as well. (Refer back to In the Beginning, There Was Nothing for more on Nothing being Something)
Challenge # 1. For Aware Energy, or Consciousness, to evolve beyond random flashes of Nothing and Something, unawareness and awareness, on and off, forgetting and remembering and the decision “to be or not to be,” it was necessary for it to explore and understand how it felt in response to the latent or potential energy forms it sensed within its field of awareness when it was consciously aware or awake. In doing so, Consciousness discovered that it was attracted to some actions and potential energy forms and repulsed by others. It even felt indifferent towards some.
If you stop to think about it, feelings or forces of attraction, repulsion, and neutrality or indifference are just as important to single units of consciousness as they are to the collective consciousness of a human being. In human conversation we often talk about forces of attraction and repulsion as if they’re mechanical or mindless, as in electromagnetic forces. Do we seem mindless when we feel drawn to or repulsed by someone or something else? In a living universe is there any such thing as mindless or mechanical? As human beings, don’t we depend on feelings of attraction, repulsion, and indifference (yes, no, and maybe) to guide our thoughts and actions in life? Without the ability to experience and learn what we don’t like, how can we create what we do like?
Excerpt # 2 from We Create Our Own Reality:
As beings of aware energy, we are both one with and separate from All That Is. We are both products of creation and creation itself. Pushed from within by the impulse to be and create and drawn from without by the promise of being and creation, it is up to us to determine the difference between what we like and don’t like, what works for us and what doesn’t, what makes us happy and what doesn’t.
Biological and emotional feelings of pain and pleasure help us determine the difference between what we like and don’t like, what works for us and what doesn’t, what makes us happy and what doesn’t. If we look at the idea of attraction and repulsion carefully, we can see how experiences like pain and pleasure evolved from simple feelings of attraction and repulsion. At more complex levels of organization, we can see how feelings of love, hate, and fear became part of our experience as well. The more we look into the details of thought and feeling, action and reaction, the more we see and learn, the more dimensions of possibility and probability we create.
