Are you and I here to obediently uphold the values of some invisible Creator God without question? Aren’t we creative too? Don’t you and I create new life and change our ways on our own? Don’t we make choices? The other popular alternative, says that we are here as the consequence of “particles of matter” that became so densely packed into a tiny point of matter, that they eventually exploded with a “Big Bang” that just happened to contain all the elements necessary for the creation of the universe as we know it.
According to this theory, as particles of matter flowed out from this grand explosion, they collided with other particles and, by random contact, they created all that we are and all that we can do. Does this sound plausible? Is this the way thoughts, feelings, actions and reactions work for you in the creation of your reality? Don’t you and I have some control over what we think and feel, how we act and react? Sure we do! By accepting full responsibility for the consequences of our thoughts and actions, we learn from them and do better the next time.
When we refuse to accept responsibility for the consequences of our thoughts and actions, others are forced to control us from the outside-in through judgments of right and wrong, good and bad, enforcing them through the shame of guilt and the fear of punishment. Until we learn to accept full responsibility for the consequences of our beliefs, attitudes, values and expectations, we will be plagued by the need of others to exercise control over our actions.
Controlling ourselves from the inside-out gives us freedom. It cannot happen, however, until we realize that we are Beings of Aware Energy. As Beings of Aware Energy, Consciousness, we are both one with and separate from each other. We are both products of creation and creation itself. To make my case, put your psychic detective hat on and read the following excerpt from, In the Beginning There Was Nothing.
(This is my personal theory about how All That Is began and how It continues to Be and Create itself. From my perspective, it’s what works best and makes me happiest in my oneness with and separation from All That Is – as both a product of creation and creation itself.)
In the beginning, there was nothing – until Nothing realized it was Something! After all, how can nothing exist without Something to define it? Sound hokey? Yeah! But it makes sense to me, so I’m stickin to it! Suddenly, with this one shocking revelation, nothing, which was now both Nothing and Something, came to life, making it possible for Anything and Everything to exist!
This profound event can be defined as the Birth of Original Thought, the Divine Spark of Creation, the First Vibration of Awareness and Action, the First Impulse to Be and Create, the First Response to the Promise of Being and Creation, the Birth of Unconditional Love, the Birth of All That Is, the Birth of One and Zero (1 and 0, on and off, yes and no, oneness and individuality, self and other), the Birth of God, Allah, or the concept of a Supreme Being.
We can also think of this defining moment as the Birth of Consciousness or Aware Energy, whose nature it is to conceive and perceive – to think, feel, act and react. In theory, it was, and is, ALL these things and more, including the moment Aware Energy or Consciousness learned how to condense a portion of itself into what we, in human form, call “matter.”
Even from a human perspective, “matter” is an illusion formed by thought and feeling, action and reaction. According to scientific research, a hydrogen atom is 99.9999999999996% empty space. Why don’t we fall right through each other? Because electrostatic fields that attract and repulse each other provide our biological senses with the illusion of density or “solid” matter.
To borrow the immortal words of Neil Armstrong and the US Space Administration, accepting the idea that Energy possesses Awareness, or Awareness possesses Energy, “is one small step for man and one giant leap for mankind.”
Got your Einstein detective hat on? Consider this: without Energy or the power to act, how can Awareness know and express itself? And without the presence of Awareness, what defines and creates a need for Energy? Doesn’t one need the other for ANYTHING and EVERYTHING to exist?
To cast off the cloak of limiting, earthbound thinking and open our hearts and minds to greater awareness and understanding, let’s start by asking ourselves a few questions. For example, what are thoughts? Where do they come from and where do they go? What are feelings? Where do they come from and where do they go? Where is the “you” that existed two minutes ago? Where did it go and in what form does it exist now? Where is the “you” that will appear two minutes from now? In what form does it exist before it becomes “you” in the present? What about the earth? Outside of Now, in what form does it exist?
Let’s assume for the moment that every “thing,” including every human being, is a Multidimensional, Vibrational Being of Aware Energy suspended in an infinite field of Aware Energy. How does it feel to be a self-aware “I Am” within your body, mind and All That Is? What does it tell us about ourselves? What does it tell you about yourself?
As a Multidimensional, Vibrational Being of Aware Energy, how would you describe your experience in Being and Creation? To give you a nudge, here’s how I define my experience in Being and Creation:
- I think, feel, act and react; therefore, I AM. (expanded version of “I think therefore I am” by Rene Descartes)
- As I think, feel, act and react (conceive and perceive), I create.
- To change what I create, I change what I think and feel, how I act and react.
- As a Multidimensional, Vibrational Being of Aware Energy, I am both one with and separate from All That Is. I am not only a product of creation; I am creation itself!
- The self (the thinking, feeling, choice-making and action-taking intermediary between inner reality, the body, and outer reality, the “I Am” of what and who I am) is my seat of power.
- The present is my point of power.
- Being and creating what I value is the promise of power.
- Being and Creation are the manifestations of power.
- Being and Creation make the invisible, visible, the unknown, known, driven by the impulse to create order out of chaos and make sense out of nonsense.
To exist, we must create. To create, we must exist.
Each thought is a different side of the same coin.
Whether we are individual Aware Energy or Consciousness Units (AEUs or CU’s) or complex gestalts (organizations) of AEUs, like human beings, it works the same. To create what we want, the outer self, ego, or self-identity, pushed from within by the Impulse to Be and Create and drawn from without by the Promise of Being and Creation, the Beating Heart of Consciousness, must learn the difference between what it likes and doesn’t like, what works for it and what doesn’t, what makes it happy and what doesn’t. In other words, to create what we want, we must know what we don’t want.*
* Excerpt 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, money included, 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.
Thoughts are “things” with a reality of their own and each of us, an artist. With thoughts in the form of beliefs, attitudes, values and expectations, we paint the landscape of our lives. Create a great day!
…and what we can learn from it.
If thoughts, in the form of beliefs, attitudes, values and expectations, create our reality, don’t we want our children to know and understand this? Don’t we all want to know and understand this? Like us, how can they improve themselves or their behavior if they don’t look for or see the connection between what they think and do, and their experiences in life? Letting others think for us may be necessary for a while but isn’t developing the ability to think for ourselves, a natural step in our evolution? Overcoming fear, uncertainty, conflict and limitation is not easy but without the ability or desire to develop greater awareness and understanding, how can we become what we value most? How can we become our true selves, the selves we love to be?
For me, choosing between these three stories of origin is no contest. It took me years of confusion, anger, suffering and soul-searching to learn that we have real choices. First, I had to learn that we create reality from what we choose to believe about ourselves and All That Is, what we habitually think and feel, and how we act and react. Then it becomes clear that the value of an idea is in the reality it creates and what we can learn from it. What’s amazing is that we make choices all the time without thinking about what we’re doing. It’s one of those things we know and do that we don’t know we know and do.
Imagine that you’re the energy of All That Is and that you’re creating a universe from yourself. If you want to see yourself as the energy of a human creating a life from yourself, you can do that too. Which of the three ideas from above, do you like most, the dominating god, the accidental collision, or the Aware Energy theory that talks about consciousness being everywhere? Which idea would you choose to use as a building block in creating your reality?
Which idea do you think would work best and make you happiest? If you have the power to imagine different ideas, don’t you also have the power to explore and play with them, to see what works best and makes you happiest? What do you want your children to think and believe?
Here to live, love, learn and evolve is one of my favorite set of beliefs. It’s also an attitude. There is a contradiction, however, between this set of ideas and what the Energy of Unconditional Love tells to believe. Unconditional Love tells us to “Be.” Whys is that? Understand that the Energy of Unconditional Love is the Source and Substance of All That Is and it knows that energy does not die, whether it contains awareness or not. Think about it. How can All That Is, including you and me, fulfill its potential without the freedom to think, feel, act and react in any we choose? Death is not a problem for Aware Energy because it never dies and it is never forgotten. It only changes to explore other forms of Being and Creation.
For us, as a form of material expression, we can die. In human form we all die. Then we’re born into new forms of being and creation, just like in dreams. It’s what we do as multidimensional, vibrational Beings of Aware Energy. Since dying to us as human beings seems real, making our own rules is important.
Our lives depend on it. When it comes to creating a human life, I like the idea of being here to live, love, learn and evolve. I know intuitively, if not intellectually that in my oneness with and separation from All That Is – as both a product of creation and creation itself, just being and doing what I want without the consideration of others is a recipe for disaster.
As a mortal being yourself, which value system would you choose to serve as a strategy for living your life? Would you choose just to “be” and “do” whatever thoughts and actions pop into your head, or would you rather see life as an opportunity to something like live, love, learn and evolve? Which belief system do you think would provide you with the result you want?
Who doesn’t want to live, love, learn and evolve? Doesn’t this strategy work and make you happy? If it does, share it and encourage further discussion on your favorite social media platforms, and encourage others to do the same. Ideas are free and right now, we’re being pushed into realignment of our belief system. Instead of resisting it, let’s dance with it!
