Your Creative Power...




THE CREATIVE USE OF
IMAGINATION by  NEVILLE GODDARD


CHAPTER 1. YOUR INFINITE WORTH

The purpose of these talks is to bring about a psychological change in you, the individual. consciousness.
Humanity, understood psychologically, is an infinite series of levels of awareness and you, individually, are what you are according to where you are in the series. Consciousness is the only reality, and where you are conscious of being psychologically, determines the circumstances of your life. The ancients knew this great truth, but our modern teachers have yet to discover it. There is only one substance in the world. Our scientists call it energy while scripture defines it as consciousness. We are told that the universe was caused by water, but if this is true, then it could not evolve into anything but water. But if the basic substance is energy (or consciousness), it can be made to manifest itself as iron, steel and wood, to name but a few. Man, seeing a variety of forms, thinks of numberless substances, but what is seen is only a change in the arrangement of the same basic substance... Consciousness.
Ephesians tells us that, "All things, when admitted, are made manifest by light." The word "light" recorded here means awareness; consciousness." The state the individual admits into his consciousness is the cause of one man being rich and another poor. The poor man admits to being in the state of poverty by saying, "I am poor," just as the rich man admits wealth by saying, "I am rich." Anything you, an individual, claim yourself to be (be it good, bad or indifferent, right or wrong) must be made manifest in your world, for by claiming the state, you have consented to its life.
There is only one cause, and that is consciousness. Your consciousness is the center from which your world mirrors and echoes the state you presently occupy. Now, a state can be defined as all that you believe and consent to as being true. So, if you want your world to change, you must determine what you want to accept and consent to as true before you can change it. To arrive at a certain definition of self, you must begin by uncritically observing your automatic reaction to an event, for your reaction defines your state. And you can, without getting out of your chair, rebuild your world by changing your level (or state) of being. This is done by observing yourself uncritically as you react to life. If you do...

What Is-Real?...

by Tim Che'

Another take on the theme, "The Maker Being Lost in the Made"

The focus of this post is the quote in the accompanying picture. To be lost in the "Made" is to be lost in what Is-Real, or IsRael. It is an unconscious form of narcissism and a very difficult trap to get out of.

For you see, we have, over time, created the ultimate gate-keeper of the trap... the intellectual faculties of the mind. Which regards truth only in terms of what appears to be real. Not realizing that what it sees in the external world is a result of a cause.

And that cause is the Imagination.

Which created something out of nothing. Something the science-priests of the world have yet to do and they will be unlikely to discover it using the external eyes of logic and reasoning.

The crisis in today's world is a Spiritual one, not a religious one. The battle is raging in you, and is being externalized in the "real" world. (read, The Battle of Armageddon")

So, to see this world as REAL, is to be trapped forever in it with no way out. But what created the world as it is, can create it as you would like it to be. It is the only creative power in the universe and it is the power that sustains it... The Imagination.

So, to see things as "Real" is to deny that all things are possible to God, and God is your Imagination.
And god and you are ONE.
