And what we can learn from it.
Aware Energy (Consciousness) is the Source and Substance of All That Is. As Beings of Aware Energy, we think, feel, act and react (conceive and perceive); therefore, we ARE. As we think, feel, act and react, we create. To change what we create, we change our thoughts and feelings, how we act and react.
As Beings of Aware Energy, we are both one with and separate from All That Is. We are both products of creation and creation itself. Pushed from within by the Impulse to Be and Create and pulled from without by the Promise of Being and Creation, it is up to us to determine the difference between what we like and what we don’t like, what works for us and what doesn’t, what makes us happy and what doesn’t.
The challenge of being and creation is learning how to use the power of thought and imagination to shape energy, money included, into a pleasing reality. The prize is a sense of satisfaction, the feeling of a job well done. Like learning how to walk and talk, it is a personal, subjective endeavor that requires creative aggression. It is a great balancing act where we, like babies, must accept falling as part of learning how to stand.
Remember: thoughts are “things” with a reality of their own, and each of us, an artist. With thoughts in the form of beliefs, attitudes, values and expectations, we paint the landscape of our lives. Create a great day!

“We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having (creating) a human experience.” – Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
Instead of money, power and privilege, would love, truth and joy be a better measure of success? One set of values isolates us in the material world of separation, scarcity, and competition when we use it as our primary measure of success. The other establishes our oneness as well as our individuality and acknowledges our role in creation itself. Values like love, truth, and joy encourage us to live for the love of Being and Creation, instead of running from the fear of suffering and death. They inspire us to find and express what we like most about ourselves and ALL That Is, instead of justifying ruthlessness, cruelty, and manipulation for the sake of short-term, personal survival.
In life and business, how often do we ask: is what I’m doing worthy of my highest ideals? Do my actions improve the quality of life or undermine it? Do they improve humanity’s chances of survival or threaten it?
How we define ourselves and the world around us forms our intent, which, in turn, creates our reality. If we don’t take responsibility for choosing our beliefs, we unconsciously absorb those around us. In other words, we create reality from what we believe, whether by fault or default, intentionally or unintentionally. How can we afford not to question all beliefs?
Should a meaningful “education” include developing the audacity to do for ourselves what others will not or cannot do for us?
What do we want most for our children, ourselves and the world?
What can we do today for the selves we’ll be tomorrow?
What works best and makes us happiest?
The secrets of the universe lie hidden in the shadows of our experience. Look for them!
Affirm what you believe!
