Everything That Is, Creates Its Reality As It Goes Along

Each world has its own impetus, yet all are ultimately connected the true dimensions of a divine creativity would be unendurable for anyone consciousness of whatever import, and so that splendor is infinitely dimensionalized, worlds spiralling outward with each ‘moment’ of a cosmic breath: with the separation of worlds a necessity: and with individual and mass comprehension always growing at such a rate that Everything That Is multiplies itself at microseconds, building both pasts and futures and other time scales we do not recognize. Each is a reality in itself, with its own potentials, and with no individual consciousness, however minute, ever lost.

Violence will always be used creatively. We cannot be destructive even when we try. Beyond that, however, in the meantime the violence that we do, we do to ourselves. We are a part of Everything That Is — of all the nature that we know and experience of the world that we know, and even a part of the world that we know that we do not like. If we rip off the wing of a fly, we we are oneself less. If we purposefully, now, or with malice, step upon an ant, then to the extent of our malice we step upon oneself all unknowing. Violence will always be used creatively, but if we do not understand this — and at our present rate of development we do not — then any violence is violence against oneself. This applies to each of us, for when we think in terms of violence we think in terms of malice or aggression. Despite all man and woman does, he and she cannot really work any destruction — but while he or she believes in destruction, then to that extent he or she minimizes what he or she is, and must work harder to use creativity.

All action is creative and ever-occurring — the only way I can get these ideas across . All energy is personified. When we look at atoms and stars we are looking at simultaneous action. We are looking into the past and into the future at the same time, as we think of it. From the landscape of the brain we are trying to look at the landscape of the mind.

We do not perceive the consciousness within the self. We do not perceive the consciousness within a star, either — yet the star is the physical materialization in our reality of another kind of consciousness, and all we perceive of it.

s9

The main issue of course is not to project negatively into the future, for there we are borrowing trouble. With physical conditions already apparent in the present, we can at least realize that while these confront us with a certain evidence, the evidence will indeed change — and can change, and is changing the minute we realize that the evidence, while present, is not inevitable all the evidence available.

The body is at each and every stage also filled with health and vitality. Those rules do not change. We all are safe and protected. Those reassurances are highly important here now.

The Importance of dreams in Man’s and Woman’s early background

We have a hand in forming all events to one extent or another, and at certain levels we are therefore involved in the construction of those global events that affect the world, whether they be of so-called natural or cultural nature.

p6

In earlier blogs I spoke about the importance of dreams in man’sĀ and woman’s early background, and their importance to us as a species. Here, I want to stress the social aspects of dreams, and to point out the fact that dreams also show us some of the processes that are involved in the actual formation of physical events: We actually come into an event, therefore, long before the event physically happens, at other levels of consciousness, and a good deal of this prior activity takes place in the state of dreaming.

Yet (remembering what I said about seeming contradictions), our dreams are also social events of a kind, and the state of dreaming can almost be thought of as an inner public forum in which each man and woman has his or her say, and in which each opinion, however unpopular, is taken into consideration. If we want to call any one dream event a private event, then I would have to tell you that that private event actually was our personal contribution to a larger multi-sided dream event, many-layered, so that one level might deal with the interests of a group to which we belong — say our family, or our political or religious organization — reaching ” outward” to the realm of national government and world affairs. As our private conscious life is lived in a community setting of one kind or another as a rule, so do our dreams take place in the same context, so that as we dream for ourselves, to some extent we also dream for our own family, for our community, and for the world.

p19

Group dreaming was at one time taken for granted as a natural human characteristic — in a tribe, for example, when new locations were being sought, perhaps in time of drought. The various tribal members would have dreams tackling whatever aspect of the problem that best suited his or her abilities and personal intents. The dreamers would travel our-of-body in various directions to see the extent of drought conditions, and to ascertain the best direction for the tribe to take in any needed migration.

Their dreams would then be shared by the tribe in the morning, or at special meetings, when each dreamer would give a rendition of the dream or dreams that seemed to be involved. In the same way, other dreamers would simply check with the dreamers of other villages or tribes — perhaps a hundred or even more miles distant. Some such dreams were extremely direct, others were clothed in symbolism according to the style of the dreamer, but in any case the dream was understood to have a public significance as well as a private one.

p12

The same still applies, though often dreams themselves are forgotten. Instead, for example, for news or for advice we watch our morning television news, which provides us with a kind of manufactured dream that to some extent technologically serves the same purpose. Instead of sending camera-people and newspaper people to the farthest corners of the earth, early man and woman sent out aspects of himself or herself to gather the news and to form it into dream dramas. Oftentimes much of the material did not need to become conscious: It was “unconsciously” acted upon, turned directly into action. Now such dreams simply act as backup systems, rising to the fore whenever they are needed. their purpose was and is to increase the value fulfillment of the species and of the individual.

Psychologists often speak of the needs of man and woman. Here I would like to speak instead of the pleasures of man and woman, for one of the distinguishing characteristics of value fulfillment is its pleasurable effect. It is not so much that man and woman or nature seeks to satisfy needs, but to exuberantly, rambunctiously seek pleasure — and through following its pleasure each organism finds and satisfies its need as well. Far more is involved in the experience of life, however, than the satisfaction of bare needs, for life is everywhere possessed with a desire toward quality — a quality that acknowledges the affirming characteristics of pleasure itself.

p2

In our terms, there is a great pleasure to be found in both work and play, in excitement and calm, in exertion and rest, yet the word “pleasure” itself has often fallen into disrepute, and is frowned at by the virtuous.

p1

One of the main purposes of dreaming, therefore, is to increase man’s and woman’s pleasure, which means to increase the quality of living itself. Dreams are mental work and play combined, psychic and emotional rich creative dramas. They also involved us in the most productive of enterprises as we begin to play with versions of events that are being considered for physical actualization, as one a personal level we “view” the probable events which our family, tribe, organization, community and country will actualize.

p8

As physical creatures we human beings cannot bear to directly confront the basic, vast, unimaginably awesome and creative consciousness of All That Is. since we cannot bear to face the great raw power of nuclear energy either. I’ve often wondered whether this situation can be an earthly, imperfect and time-ridden analog to what must be the reality of All That Is.
