We all have the power to create things. We can create what we want. We really can. Seriously. But we have to truly want it. We have to accept the consequences of our creations. We have to acknowledge that everything we experience was created by us. We need to take responsibility for what we have created and if we do not like what we have created, we need to move in a different direction of creation. We are naturally creative beings, us humans. I say this as I create something right now, this blog entry. We can create power or weakness. We can create certainty or doubt. We can create confidence or low self-esteem. The choices are up to us in this very moment. We have the power. But most people never use it. Why?
Because it takes a lot of work to harness this power. If you start thinking about what you do not want, it shall come to you. The more thought and time you put into something, the more prominent it is in your reality. I know this because I see it all the time. People who complain tend to attract negative things into their lives. People who stay positive tend to have much better lives all-around. If thoughts are creative, then wouldn’t it make sense to only think about what you want and not think about what you don’t want? Even if thoughts are not creative, why bother thinking about what you don’t want in the first place? What would that ever do for you? It would only create a state of fear, worry, and depression, which is hardly optimal for conscious living. We all are much better off thinking more positively because then we create positive ripples out into our reality.
No matter what you are experiencing, you have created it. Do not deny your creation. That only puts you further away from being conscious. If you don’t acknowledge your reality for what it is, how can you move forward to a better one? You simply cannot. You must accept your reality for what it is, and intend for it to be what you want it to be. You must work for what you want it to be. You must capitalize on opportunities that are swung your way to create the reality you want. It’s all you anyway, so you might as well make something of it. Consciousness is ever-present and to shift your consciousness to a more empowered state is good for everything and everyone. That is, as long as you are conscious enough to not use that power for less than desirable gains.
We are immensely powerful creatures that have the ability to perform great acts and create real change in the world. We just need to learn about tools to help us get to where we want to be. This is no easy task. To become true conscious creators, we must train our minds and our souls. We must become beings capable of not only changing our realities, but making the right changes to impact the world towards the greater good, whatever we envision that to be. Through the subjective reality paradigm, what is good for consciousness is good for everything. Because in reality consciousness is all there is, and we are experiencing it subjectively. It’s just a ride, folks. Why not make it fun and exhilarating?
It’s Just A Ride is from Bill Hick’s stand-up act. Very enlightening piece of material if I do say so myself. I really encourage you to listen to that if you’ve never heard it. He was one of the most thoughtful comedians ever to grace this world and sadly, he died way too young of pancreatic cancer. There have been countless documentaries made about him and how much of a great human being he was. He truly cared about humanity, even if he didn’t always show it in his act. A truly conscious human being, someone far beyond the haze of social conditioning. He created a legend from himself that still lives to this day. He may not be as well known as George Carlin or Seinfeld, but he sure has touched a lot of lives, or at least the intelligent ones.
Just think about what you could do with your life if you truly did something that actually mattered on a deep, conscious level. Just think if you changed the global consciousness for the better. There have been many who have done it before and there will be many who will do it again. We all have this power within us. But not all of us has the skills or courage to pursue this dream, to open people’s eyes and change their ways of thinking to create a better world. It is very challenging and will be met with much resistance. But the resistance is only there to scare away the timid adventurers. I’ll give you a quote that truly sums up what I am talking about:
When a resolute young fellow steps up to the great bully, the world, and takes him boldly by the beard, he is often surprised to find it comes off in his hand, and that it was only tied on to scare away the timid adventurers.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
This is a great quote about fear and how when you face your fears, they turn out to be much less than you imagined them to be. The quote “the only thing to fear is fear itself” also rings true here. The only thing that holds us back from creating the world of our dreams is fear itself. Once we transcend fear in the global consciousness, we will live in a world of love and compassion. It will be a dream world. But it’s always about getting there that’s the hard part. But the time is going to pass anyway, isn’t it? And we owe it to humanity and all-life-on-Earth to get to a place where fear is gone and we can consciously create a world far better than the one we have today. I believe it is worth a try, to use our creative powers to create heaven on Earth, don’t you? Or would you rather just keep creating what you are getting?
A simple choice, but not a simple one to make. A great ideal, with a lot of work to accomplish. But I have faith in humanity to get where we need to be, eventually. We all just need to wake up and have the courage to live consciously.
