This creation stuff is tricky business. We are so locked into the old rules and regulations of how it has to be done that we can’t see the forest for the trees. Especially because even what we knew of it a year ago has changed and expanded. If we are still holding on to the illusion that the forest and the trees are there regardless of our focus and creation of them, we are missing the newest, most unlimited thought possible.
What if God is merely energy that created for us? That energy – let’s call it the Creative Force – loved us so much that it simply wanted us to play with the creation and manipulation of It, so It could have awesome experiences of everything It could possibly imagine. And let’s pretend that It didn’t call any of those experiences bad: war was simply an exercise in the creation of war, love was dabbling in a different vibrational exercise, etc. Our world of Us would be a virtual reality game where we could create anything and everything without fear of judgment, being wrong, committing sin, losing love, or death from decision in any way. It’s a description of Freedom that is difficult to understand from the limited thoughts of a fearful society.
Our perspective is the most important creation tool in the creation process, and we have heard that principle expressed in a myriad of ways throughout the years: seeing the glass half full or half empty, “As you believe, it will be delivered to you,” and as Henry Ford so aptly put it, “If you think you can, or you think you can’t, you’re right.” These statements are all saying the same thing: reality is created by choice. Choosing the reality we want, then, should be a no-brainer. Easy. Effortless.
It appears to be so easy that it is hard to grasp. “If it is that easy,” we argue, “why don’t I have what I want?” Because you don’t believe it’s that easy! And as you believe… We just can’t seem to allow ourselves the unlimited thought that daydreaming and imagining and being happy and being joyful is all we have to do to create that in our lives. It has to be more complicated. We have to learn and study and meditate for hours and go through all sorts of machinations to create us being able to create. We are repeating the same need for rituals that old religion did and calling it New Age. Creation should be fun and joyous. Indeed, creation doesn’t happen without that. And yet, here we are, toiling away to figure it out.
So, obviously, there is a belief in place that creation is hard, and as we believe, it is delivered. You can see what awesome creators we are. We are delivering some substantial struggle in our lives.
There are five components to Creation: Know, Believe, Allow, Be Happy, Release. Let’s take money. “I know I am the creation of it. I believe the money is created, I allow it to manifest from anywhere, I choose to be happy. I release it to the Universe to deliver.”
If you can see it, you can create it; but with ease and grace, not force and manipulation. Our minds want to fight that. Our minds want to play by the old rules and regulations of power, manipulation and control. That doesn’t work in the world of virtual reality, because it limits everything and enters the creation game with limitations in place. Who wants to create a virtual world with limitations? We want the virtual worlds of freedom, unconditional love, wellness and more-than-enoughness.
The games that invite us to pick up the sword and the gun are the virtual worlds we create until we know that the greatest power of creation is Love. That is our power. Create that virtual world. Yippee!
