Ways we create
Creating with or without influence
Three ways to create

To create is to bring into existence something not previously seen or experience or something significantly different from the past. In essence it is to create something from nothing from a place of “no-thing-ness.” Two analogies can be used to see how this is possible. One is the a vibrating string which creates an illusionary form. The second the pair production phenomenon where energy is converted to mass. These and other creativity principles can be applied to any aspect of your life to create what you desire.

Creating with or without influence (Top)

Creation can be done in two ways. One is to create is to create something from nothing to be without the influence of another creation and the only influences lie internal to the creator. The second way is under an influence of an existing creation and is best described as creating within a creation. External influence as used here is something perceived external to one’s being whether it is something actually outside oneself, or a belief that comes form outside oneself such that something or someone outside oneself is in control of one’s thoughts. Each of these methods result in duality for duality is inherent to the experience energy consciousness. For any creation, there is always a creation that is observed and an observer of that creation. Whether we experience separation from the whole or experience a oneness and interconnectedness when we experience creation/Creation depends on how we chose to create our point of observation and perspective when the choose to become the observer.

Creating without external influence in physical creation is essentially impossible. For one to create without external influence is to be isolated. But we are a creation within a creation. To isolate oneself from what one believes to be external influences is to create an intense single point focus of one’s creative powers so as to not be distracted to manifest what we desire at the exclusion of everything else. This is the approach behind sitting and meditating to create a desired condition. However, this method of focusing on creating without an external influence tends to foster an experience of separation as opposed to oneness and interconnectedness. There is an alternative approach and it is to create an internal seed condition that can be used to manifest an external creation in the physical world without causing the illusion of separation. In essence we grow our creation and surrender to the creative/creation process and allow it to lead our life. In essence we become both the creator and the creation.

The effectiveness of this method lies in the fact that we all are an independent and unique consciousness that can exist in a universe unto itself.  As we can each come to see, effectiveness depends on what we wish to create and how what is created is connected to the external world. To create without the illusion of separate is to use a music analogy were each is an independent musician capable of performing in and with a large orchestra and the overall sound is the superposition of the sound made by each instrument.

Creating without any external influence is to create on out own instrument and in our own style of music. As long as we “keep it to ourselves” and don’t share our music, or even desire to share it, we can have all that we desire. If however, we wish to share our music with another, we are no longer isolated. We will be under the influence of those with whom we wish to share our music. They will influence our music and to some degree or another control what our music sounds like. If we wish to maintain the integrity of what we have created in isolation yet bring it into the world, we will need to have a well developed and balanced ego with a very strong source of energy experienced a s a deeply held passion to fuel and accomplish this feat. However, the easiest way to create with this method and take something into the world is to create the seed condition and let your creation unfold much the way a seed unfolds into a tree.

To create under an external influence is to create within and with the external conditions we believe exists. In this music analogy this would be to create music that is both pleasurable to us and the external world. Excluding the details as to how and why this process works, the creative/creation process boils down to three approaches. Although all creative efforts result in duality we can experience either wholeness or separation depending on the focus of our attention and awareness. Creating under an external influence will always have a tremendous potential that our creation will be experienced and perceived in separation.

Three ways to create (Top)

The first approach is the most common way and the way that is taught to most of us. It is to choose what one desires, or to set and hold a clear intention. Then act on what our mind thinks and believes it needs to do to get and manifest what it desires. This is the masculine way to create. It is to thrust our desires into manifesting. However, because it is a thrusting, it is both the fastest way to manifest a desire but also has the potentially most damaging and destructive. It is much like a two edge sword and can cut both ways. Unless one understands the ego and learns how to temper the ego, one may get what they want but the collateral damage to ones environment and the individuals in that environment will be devastating.

This method of creation is based on what we or others know and have previously experienced. Since mind only knows the past and we rely on mind, we risk creating the past in a new way rather than being truly creative. Because this approach is based on what we or others have experienced, it tends to be accompanied by “making mistakes” and /or “getting it wrong” for there is the comparison to what was done in the past. When this approach is taken, there is a right way and a wrong way to do what we desire.

When this approach is viewed from a creativity perspective, the initial perception about this method is that we are creating based on what mind thinks and believes about reality. However, this approach is not based so much on what one thinks and believes but rather it is based on what one has experienced, whether or not one believes and/or understands what they have experienced, and/or remembers what they experience. As one can come to see, mind exists because of what we have experienced and it is our experiences that has created our mind as we currently know it. Relaying on mind to create more often than not keeps us bound in the past.

The second approach to creativity is the least common approach. It is one that is rarely taught or even sufficiently understood to be taught. It is based on being totally in what is symbolized by the heart and complete surrender to the flow of one’s creative life energy. This method requires one to be totally “out of mind” and have a complete trust that the Universe will mold itself to one’s intention. This is the feminine way of creating. It is very nurturing and sustaining and grows the creation much the way embryo grows within the womb.

Although it is the slower way to manifest a creation, when there is alignment between our intention and the intention for our life it is the most gentlest way possible to create. To use this approach we simply sets and hold a clear intention. We then surrender to the flow of energy we create from that intention by what feel. We allow our feelings to lead us through our internal compass. We use our internal compass to lead us to what we intend trusting the universe will mold itself to our intention.

There is a significant issue with this method and that is the intention for our life. If we have no conscious desire or intention and we can rid ourselves of the desires and intentions that have been programmed or enculturated in us and step out of mind, we will be lead by our feelings to manifest the intention for our life. If however, we hold some conscious or subconscious desire or intention it will have to compete with the intention for our life for our creative life energy. Of course if our desire and the intention for our life are in alignment with each other, we will tend to experience an internal satisfaction that does not depend on the outside world. However, if the intention we hold is not in alignment with the intention for our life, depending on the misalignment, we will experience a feeling that ranges from a mild discomfort and/or awkwardness to pain. The pain can be so intense as to make us believe we have a physical problem of some type for which we seek medical help. Or we may experience some type of psychological issue that in the worst case could be a perceived as a sever depression or some type schizophrenia between our mind and what we feel.

The third way of creating is through a dance between heart and mind that is best described as creating through surrender. In essence, it is a dance between what we feel as used in the feminine way to create and what we think. But thinking is not used in the traditional way we use thinking. It is the most satisfying method for to be able to walk or dance requires balance. To use it requires an enormous trust in one’s understanding of, and about, oneself and more importantly, an enormous trust in one’s ability to feel and the subsequent use of feelings through our intuitive guidance and body wisdom. He we needs to choose what we desire to manifest and then step “out of mind” to act on, and follow, our intuitive guidance and body wisdom. In this method, we allow the intuitive guidance to lead them and not what our mind thinks. Feelings and perceived and discerned through our internal compass sets the direction for how we needs to act in response to the clear intention we set. Mind attends to the details to make it happen the way mind perceives the flow of our creative life energy in response to the intention.

In stepping “out of mind” and out of what we think and believe about how reality works, we do not second guess or judge what the intuition provides. Rather we simply follows it. In this third method, there are no mistakes and there is no right way and a wrong way to create what we desire. Rather, it is just a process we use to just explore the unknown to see what works and what doesn’t work.

The key understandings that go with this method of using intuitive guidance is that to manifest any desire: 1) the most energetic aspect of the creative process will arise to be addressed and the energy dissipated to form the creation and 2) one must allow the creative life energy of the universe manifesting the intention to freely flow into the desired form, that is the creation and/or experience. We need to allow the energy to freely flow out of the creation/experience. In this regard, anything that can help the free flow of energy either by releasing the past or preventing attachments so that we can live and be present in the moment, the “Now,” will assist the creative process.

This third way of manifesting starts with setting a clear intention. Then to surrender to our intuitive guidance. We need to honor our intuitive guidance by acting on what is given as literal as possible to the best of our ability or symbolically honoring our intuitive guidance in ritual or metatheater. In doing so, we need to trust that as we act literally on our intuitive insight, a new though or image will arise to adjust our actions as the energy is allowed to flow into manifestation or the original intuitive insight will remain unchanged. If the insight remains unchanged we only needs to continue to act on that insight allowing the flow to dissipate until the energy is totally dissipated in a physical manifestation. For any creation, there is a flow of energy consciousness into form and then the dissipation of that energy causing the form to dissolve back into the original starting material. Unless the energy for each step or phase of the creative process is allowed to fully dissipate parts of the intermediate steps will remain fixed and the final creation will be impacted by the energy that has not dissipated.
