The creator is not the master of his or her creations.

He or she is simply their creator, and he or her creates because he or she does not attempt to control.

When we try to control power or people, we always copy. To some extent the world copies itself, in that there are patterns. Those patterns are always changed to one extent or another, so that no object is ever a copy of another–though it may appear to be the same.

In our terms, the world is intensely different from one moment to another, with each smallest portion of consciousness choosing its reality from a field of infinite probabilities. Immense calculations, far beyond our conscious decisions as we think of them, are probable only because of the unutterable freedom that resides within minute worlds inside our skull– patterns of interrelationships, counterparts so cunningly woven that each is unique, freewheeling, and involved in an infinite cooperative venture so powerful that the atoms stay in certain forms, and the same stars shine in the sky.

The familiar and strange are intimately connected in our most obvious, our simplest utterance. We are surrounded by miracles. Why, then, does the world so often seem dour and cruel? Why do our fellow beings, sometimes seem like unfeeling monsters–Frankenstein not of body but of mind, spiritual idiots, ignorant of any heritage of love or truth or even graceful beast-hood? Why does it seem to many of us that the race, the species, is doomed? Why do some of us feel, in our quiet moments, such a sentence just?

We make our own reality.

 

In the unknown reality, we have inner affiliations. What are they?

It is up to us to discover to which one we belong. In any group the relationships indicate inner realizations and connections. The realities appear in each of our lives.

Now any group will show interrelationships. We can see then for ourselves. There is great diversity within the family of consciousness, as there is within any physical race, and there is also great variety within other psychic families.

We choose to be born in a particular physical family, however, with our brothers and sisters, or as an only child. So, generally speaking, our counterparts are born in the same psychic family of our counterparts.

Now categories do not come first. Our individuality comes first. We have certain characteristics of our own. These place us in a certain position. As we are not a rock or a mineral, but a person, so our individuality places us in a particular family or species of consciousness. This represents our overall viewpoint of reality.

We like to be an initiator or a follower or a nourisher. We like to create variations on old systems, or we like to create new ones. We like to deal primarily with healing, or with information, or with physical data. We like to deal with sight, or sound, with dreams, or with translating inner data into the working psychic material of our society. So we choose a certain focus, as we choose ahead of time our physical family.

We keep searching for a new “ascended master,” or guru, to keep us in line and point out THE WAY.

In their own ways children are quite aware of their counterparts, and of, other portions of their individual realities. They relate to their counterparts in dreams. They sometimes see them as “invisible” companions. We dream of our own counterparts frequently, but we are so afraid of maintaining what we think of as the rational adult self that we ignore such communications.

In certain circles, soul mates is the latest vogue. The idea is an old one; it is based upon the reality of counterparts, and presents another version of the theory. But, it is treated with an almost pompous seriousness. Many of those who use the term do it to hide rather than to release their own joyful abilities. they spend time searching for their soul mates–but the search involves them in a pilgrimage for a kind of impossible communication with another, in which all division is lost, with the two then trying to join in a cementing oneness, suffocating all sense of play or creativity. We are not one part, or one half, of another soul, searching through the annals of time for our partner, undone until we are complete by our soul mate.

When we become too intent to maintain our reality we lose it, for we deny the creativity upon which it rests.

I am not denying the importance of true reason. Certainly I am not telling us to ignore the intellect. But we do often ignore the playfulness of the intellect, and force it to become something less than it is.

Most people, are so utterly serious that they suspect their own creativity.

They expect that its products will be unreal or not valid in the physical world. yet there is a great correlation between what we think of as creativity, altered states of consciousness, play, and “spiritual” development.

When we create a poem or a song or a painting we are in a state of play, of enjoyment, of freedom. We intend to make something different, to produce a new version of reality. We create out of love, for the sake of the experience. At one time or another almost everyone has that kind of experience, but children have it often. They compose songs and music and paintings in their heads. They alter the focus of their consciousness frequently. They do not stop to ask whether or not the play is real or pertinent. Physically, play develops their body mechanisms. it also flexes the great capabilities of their minds.

When we think: “Life is earnest,” and decide to put away childish things, then often we lose sight of our own creativity and become a goal that must be attained. The goal is to be achieved through hard work, and as long as we believe this we do not understand what the spirit is.

A natural analogy–plants do not work at developing their potential. They are not beautiful because they believe it is their responsibility to please our eye. They are beautiful because they love themselves and beauty. When we are so serious we almost always distort the nature of our own spirit as far as our understanding of it is concerned. We cannot let our guard down long enough to discover what it is. We keep looking for new rules or regulations, or methods of discipline.
