Making the Unknown, Known

by Pete on May 25, 2017


Creation is the process of making the unknown, known, the invisible, visible, creating order out of chaos and making sense out of nonsense.

Excerpt #1 from We Create Our Own Reality:

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 or talk, it is a personal, subjective endeavor that requires creative aggression. It is a great balancing act that makes falling part of learning how to stand.

What do we do when we feel an itch? We learn to scratch it. When we feel cold, hungry, thirsty, frightened or lonely, what do we do? We look for ways to alleviate these conditions in a process of living and learning, growing and evolving. We make what was once unknown, known and a working part of our lives.

In the beginning, for Nothing-Something to evolve beyond meaningless flashes of awareness and action, it had to overcome certain basic limitations or challenges. Keep in mind that for us to discuss something that happened at the Birth of Consciousness, we must play the role of Psychic Detective and speculate/intuit/feel what it was like for Aware Energy in the beginning. As Beings of Aware Energy, Nothing being Something ourselves, we may actually have something meaningful to say about it, since in our Oneness with All That Is, we were there in the “Beginning.”  We must also not forget that the Beginning is present in each new moment we experience as well. (Refer back to In the Beginning, There Was Nothing for more on Nothing being Something)

Challenge # 1.  For Aware Energy or Consciousness to evolve beyond random flashes of Nothing and Something, unawareness and awareness, off and on, forgetting and remembering, it was necessary for it to explore and understand how it felt in response to the latent or potential energy forms it sensed within its field of awareness when it was awake, so to speak. In doing so, Consciousness discovered that it was attracted to some actions and potential energy forms and repulsed by others. It even felt indifferent towards some.

If you stop to think about it, feelings or forces of attraction, repulsion, and indifference are just as important to single Units of Consciousness and human beings as they are to the collective consciousness of All That Is. In human conversation we often talk about forces like attraction and repulsion as if they’re mechanical or mindless, as in electromagnetic forces. Do they seem mindless when we feel drawn to or repulsed by someone or something else? In a living universe is there any such thing as mindless or mechanical? As human beings, don’t we depend on feelings of attraction, repulsion, and indifference to guide our actions in life? Without being able to experience and learn what we don’t like, how can we create what we do like?

Excerpt # 2 from We Create Our Own Reality:

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 drawn from without by the Promise of Being and Creation, it is up to us to determine the difference between what we like and don’t like, what works for us and what doesn’t, what makes us happy and what doesn’t.

If we’re being honest with ourselves and others, words like yes, no, and maybe, and other biological cues, are meant to communicate attraction, repulsion, and indifference. If we look at the idea of attraction and repulsion carefully, we can see how feelings of love, hate, and fear are related. We can also see how experiences like pleasure and pain evolved from the energy of attraction and repulsion. The more we look into the details of thought and feeling, the more we see and learn.
