Unconditional Love

Regarding the role of and need for Unconditional Love, the following is what makes the most sense to me. It is what works best and makes me happiest. What makes the most sense to you? What works best and makes you happiest?

Unconditional Love knows that for awareness and action (Consciousness, Being and Creation) to fulfill its greatest potential, All That Is must be free to live, love, learn and evolve. It knows that for you and I to fulfill our own greatest potential, we must be free to live, love, learn and evolve. Even though Unconditional Love may not like who we are or what we do in the moment, it knows that we must be free to evolve into the next best version of the selves we can be. It is the only way All That Is can evolve into the next best thing It can be. Individually and together, we are forever God becoming.

To learn more about the nature of unconditional love and its effect on me, read, My Encounter With the Energy of Unconditional Love. Starting out as an experiment in mental telepathy, my encounter played itself out as I drove an empty twelve-passenger minivan over Mt. St. Helena in northern California early one morning in late 1985. It was one of the most profound, if not the most profound, experiences I’ve ever had in life! Its meaning is still unfolding in my mind. Google unconditional love to learn more about it. My experience says it’s a real form of energy that can be felt by anyone under the right set of circumstances. Cheers!

Thank You on Thanksgiving

Awareness and Energy

Thank you and All That Is for the opportunity to live, love, learn and evolve – not only as a human being exploring the nature of Being and Creation, but also as an ever-present, multidimensional, vibrational Being of Aware Energy, both one with, and separate from, you and All That Is. Happy Thanks Giving!

From A Place of Love, Truth, and Joy

Choosing Love

Conscious Creators – choosing to come from a place of love, truth, and joy. Why? Because unconditional love is unconditional acceptance. It lets us breathe and sets us free to explore and find ourselves without conflict and judgment. It frees us to learn 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. Without being free to learn what it is we don’t want, how can we make clear and create what we do want?

Love

What is unconditional love and what does it know?

  • Unconditional love is unconditional. It says: “Nothing you can ever think, feel, say or do can keep you from being loved unconditionally.” For reference read: Encounter With Unconditional Love.
  • Unconditional love may not like who we are or what we’re doing in the moment but it does know we’re doing the best we can with what we know and learning more to do better.
  • Unconditional love knows we’re perfect just the way we are.
  • Love gives birth to every idea, even though, for the life of us, we may not be able to figure out why.
  • Unconditional love sees the magic and wonder in All That Is.
  • Love knows and supports the idea that consciousness wants to know and learn from itself in every possible way.
  • It knows that we are Aware Energy or Consciousness and that, as we think, feel, act and react, we create.
  • Love knows that we are the energy and potential of All That Is, and that what we are is good.
  • Love knows that we are both one with and separate from All That Is.
  • It knows that we are both products of creation and creation itself!
  • Love knows that our oneness with, and separation from, All That Is are equally important to the creation of All That Is and All that is possible.
  • Love knows how important it is to peace, freedom, and creativity.
  • Love knows All That Is wants to love and be loved without condition.
  • Love knows we’re all in this together.
  • Love knows we’re never alone.
  • Love is what we feel when we sense our oneness with the energy of All That Is.

Truth

What is truth and what does it know?

  • Truth knows how important honesty and integrity are to the balance and stability of All That Is.
  • Truth seeks the greatest understanding and serves the highest good.
  • Truth affirms itself with a sense of satisfaction, the feeling of a job well done.
  • Truth is the honest assessment of what works best and makes us happiest.
  • Truth is what we find as we free our minds from fear, misinformation, and limitation.
  • Truth knows that we are waking up, wising up, and rising up to greater understanding.
  • Truth is love.

Joy

What is joy and what does it know?

  • Joy knows we are the energy of the universe at play.
  • Joy knows we are loved and valued.
  • Joy knows we are doing the best we can with what we know and learning more to do better.
  • Joy knows we are free to Be and think for ourselves, to make our own mistakes and learn form them.
  • Joy is a sense of satisfaction, the feeling of a job well done.
  • It is the perception of an important thought, a meaningful touch, a pleasing smell, a great flavor, and a beautiful sight or sound.
  • It is the feeling we get when our joy makes others feel theirs.
  • Joy is what we feel in those too few moments we sense our connection with our own greater self, each other, nature, the universe and All That Is.
  • Love, truth, and joy are spiritual values shared throughout the energy of All That Is.
  • Joy is love.

Excerpt from We Create Our Own Reality:

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!

What do you see when you look at the world through the eyes of love, truth, and joy? It’s been a great exercise for my wife and I! Why don’t you take it for a spin? Who knows what great and wonderful insights you might come up with?

Every idea has its own validity and presents us with a choice. This seems to support the idea that we’re here to live, love, learn and evolve. Conscious Creators – always looking within and without for the best to express!

The Secret to Happiness

Happiness

Seth:

“Now, happiness comes from feeling within yourself the wonder and the joy that is within yourself, and there is no other way in any world of experiencing happiness. You cannot expect a lover to give it to you, you cannot expect a child to give it to you, you cannot expect events to give it to you.

It is yours by right if you claim it, and if you do not claim it, or if you turn your back upon it, then it seems to you that you must look for it in others or that others are always happier than you are. Now, and all of you know what I am going to say, the tiniest cell within your tiniest toe is happy.

Feel its happiness. Feel the vitality that is your self as it always pervades your being. It is within you now, keeping you alive and sitting there so pert and pretty, so acknowledge it and listen and feel within yourself for that life energy that is always within you.

Look at a leaf or at a teaspoon or at one of your children or simply at a shadow and feel the miraculous uniqueness of what you see, and the miracle of the eyes that allow you to see it and the power of the brain that is able to make these connections, and then the happiness rides up through your being and you wonder how it was that you did not see it before.

But money will not make you happy, and alone, love from another will not make you happy. But love of yourself will, and it will lead to happiness for yourself and for others.”

Excerpt from Seth/Jane Roberts/Robert Butts’, 6-13-72, ESP class on Social Programming and Loyalty to False Beliefs.

If we spend more time feeling the wonder and joy that exists within us, think about how this can change us, and the world! – Pete

I love to play with ideas because I see them as the building blocks of creation. I test drive them to see where they take me. If I like the ride and think I can learn more, I’ll ride them again. If they become particularly important to me, I make them my friends. One of my favorite ideas is that I am part of a larger, inner self that knows much more than me. So, when I go to bed at night,  I often ask my inner self to help me understand what we are, what reality is, and what the purpose of life is. When I wake up in the morning, I ask my invisible, soundless inner self what s/he has to share with me. Then, I listen and write down whatever comes into mind. If I find a subject particularly intriguing, I’ll explore it until my interest is exhausted and I’m ready to move on to something else. It’s like a discussion but much deeper. I seem to be interacting with ideas themselves. Here’s where it started this morning:

Creating a life of meaning – what does that mean?

Creating a life of value – what does that mean?

Creating a life of purpose – what does that mean?

Does Consciousness want to know itself?

Does it want to know itself as everything possible?

Does All That Is, in every form of itself, want to be loved and valued?

Do you want to be loved and valued?

When our reward for thought and action is a sense of satisfaction and the feeling of a job well done, does it keep us in touch with the universe and spiritually grounded? Does how much money, power, and privilege we accumulate do the same when we let material values like these become our primary measures of success? Does an obsession with money, power, and privilege eventually throw us and society out of balance?

When there is no more money to facilitate the exchange of goods and services, what happens to the need and development of human skills? What happens to the quality of life when people can no longer find meaningful work to make money and buy essential goods and services to satisfy their basic needs? In a world of haves and have-nots, how can anyone find peace?

Will using inner values like a sense of satisfaction and the feeling of a job well done, feelings of love, truth, and joy, help us create a more loving world based on cooperation and spiritual connection? Isn’t life more about living, loving, learning and evolving, than being good or bad, right or wrong? Isn’t it more about accepting that we’re not only products of creation; we’re creation itself? Here’s an excerpt from my personal worldview. It’s what works best and makes me happiest. What else can you do when what you’ve been given doesn’t work for you?

Aware Energy

Excerpt from Sharing A Different Worldview:

How can we accept the idea that Aware Energy or Consciousness is the Source and Substance of All That Is? Because, without Energy or the power to act, Awareness cannot know and express itself. And without the presence of Awareness, what defines and creates a need for Energy? Yes, one needs the other for ANYTHING and EVERYTHING to exist!

From a human perspective, “matter” itself is an illusion formed by the action of thought and imagination. According to scientific research, a hydrogen atom is 99.9999999999996% empty space. Why don’t we fall right through each other? Because electrostatic fields that attract and repulse each other provide our biological senses with the illusion of density or “solid” matter.

To borrow the immortal words of Neil Armstrong and the US Space Administration, accepting that Energy possesses Awareness, or Awareness possesses Energy, “is one small step for man and one giant leap for mankind.”

For the experience of it, imagine that Aware Energy or Consciousness, pushed from within by the Impulse to Be and Create and drawn from without by the promise of Being and Creation, is the Source and Substance of All That Is. As a Multidimensional, Vibrational Being of Aware Energy in an infinite field of Aware Energy, how does it feel to be a self-aware “I” within your body, mind and All That Is?

How does it feel to be:

  1. Both one with and separate from All That Is?
  2. Both a product of creation and creation itself?

How does it feel to know that:

  1. We think, feel, act and react (conceive and perceive); therefore, we ARE. (expanded version of “I think therefore I am” by Rene Descartes)
  2. As we think, feel, act and react, we create.
  3. To change what we create, we change what we think and feel, how we act and react.
  4. The self is our seat of power.
  5. The present is our point of power.
  6. Being and Creating what we value is the promise of power.
  7. Being and Creation are the manifestations of power.
  8. Being seeks to create the visible from the invisible, the known from the unknown. It seeks to create order out of chaos and make sense out of nonsense.

To boggle your mind even further, try this for fun! Ask yourself: where is the “me” that existed two minutes ago. Where did it go and in what form does it exist in my current “now”? By the same token, ask yourself: where is the “me” that will appear two minutes from now? In what form does it exist in my present? What about the earth and the universe? Outside the moment we interact with it, in what form does it exist? Are there worlds and realities that exist beyond our current field of comprehension, our current area of interest? Do we create what we concentrate on, what we habitually and playfully think about?

Excerpt from We Create Our 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 and talk, it is a personal, subjective endeavor that requires creative aggression. It is a great balancing act where we 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.

Whispered Questions

On the other hand, when we let material concepts like money, power, and privilege (status?) serve as our measures of success, don’t we tend to compare and separate ourselves from each other? Doesn’t this world of value judgment, right and wrong, good and bad, control from without through the shame of guilt and the fear of punishment, become more clearly defined the longer we focus our attention on separation, scarcity, and competition in the name of self-survival, me versus we?

Favor the material side of us or the spiritual one? Can we service both at the same time?

What are we trying to teach ourselves? What do we want to learn?

What works best and makes us happiest?

What do we want most for our children, ourselves, and the world?

Do we seek the greatest understanding and serve the highest good or not? Do we prefer to see greater understanding and serve a higher good? Do we ride life hard or with a light reign? Do we vary our intensity as circumstances seem fit?

Do we look for the best in ourselves and All That Is? Or, is just looking for the good enough?

Is the Self the intermediary between the soul, the body, and the world? Is the world anything more than projected symbols and meanings made “real” through the learned focus of our attention?

Again, doesn’t Being seek to create the visible from the invisible, the known from the unknown? Doesn’t it seek to create order out of chaos and make sense out of nonsense?

Talk and listen to the universe. It has much to say to us and we have much to learn.

All That Is is a different face of God. Which face do you want to see when you look in the mirror of the world?

Being is the ultimate creation.

Without awareness and action, Being, in any form, could not exist.

So, aside from the excerpt and some related comments above, this is what was on my mind when I woke up this morning. Where do ideas like these come from and how do some of them attract enough interest or energy to become part of our reality? Cheers!

Doing the Best We Can 2

Doing the Best We Can

Thoughts upon waking up this morning, Saturday, September 23, 2017:

  1. As I reached inward to retrieve any messages that may have been left for me by my inner self and friends during the night, I began to think about the similarity between the concept of a world view and a work ethic. Both represent a set of ideas, understandings or principles that either work for us or don’t. The only difference between the two, it seems to me, is the scope, size, or intent of each. A work ethic, by definition, generally limits itself to beliefs, attitudes, values and expectations surrounding the idea of working for a living, whether it’s for ourselves or others. In other words, doing what we must do to survive. The ideas meant to represent a worldview attempt to include a reference to everything, including a story of origin. How effective a worldview is depends on how detailed it is and how well it reflects our experience. Does that make sense to you? It does to me.
  2. The next thought that presented itself was the memory of how the sleeping or meditating self can lighten its density from that of a human body, down through a series of less dense bodies, all the way down to the lightest of tissue bodies surrounding pure consciousness or raw awareness and action, thought and feeling. In other words, it can shift from the most complex form of being to the least and back again in response to our desire. To discover that, however, we must dare to boldly go where few have gone before, to paraphrase the imaginations behind the creation of Star Trek.

Examples:

Inside Ivy is an account of how my love for a household ivy plant led to my consciousness flowing out of my body and down into the plant after many months of talking to it lovingly, before going to bed at night.

The Ball of Light – A Lucid Dream About the Nature of Consciousness and Being uses the symbolism of a high school and a miniature living replica of the Earth in one of its classrooms to set the stage for one of the most extraordinary and coherent lucid dream experiences I’ve ever had. I wish my writing was better to make reading it more enjoyable but, in keeping with the image above, I’m doing the best I can and learning more to do better. Bear with me!

So, this brings us to the final thoughts I had before prying my butt out of bed to start the day. These final thoughts were:

  1. Be more observant.
  2. Explore.
  3. Experiment.
  4. Record.

My assumption, as I began to receive these thoughts, was that they all refer to the study of the larger consciousness of which we are both one with and apart from.

“Become the change you wish to see in the world.” – Gandhi

We all have our own worldview because we’re not only following the “rules,” we’re creating them. When we stop worrying about right and wrong, good and bad, and start looking for what works best and makes us happiest, we’re creating our own rules. The challenge is to make good rules, rules that work and make us happy in both our oneness with and separation from All That Is.

“Everything you do must be worthy of your ideals or they become something else, something less than ideal.” – Seth

Being and doing what works best and makes us happiest is challenging sometimes but, isn’t it worth it?

What works best and makes us happiest in our oneness with and separation from each other? Don’t we need to take everything into consideration to be at peace with ourselves?

Every idea has its own validity and presents us with a choice. This supports the idea that we’re here to live, love, learn and evolve. Conscious Creators – always looking within and without for the best to express!

For further reference, read, A Different Worldview. It represents my best effort, so far, to develop a worldview that measures up to the intent of my basic impulse or Feeling Tone, which is to, seek the greatest understanding and serve the highest good. Sometimes, I feel more comfortable with a stepped down version of it as in: seeking greater understanding and serving a higher good. It takes the pressure off and lets me ride life with a lighter reign when I feel the need to. Cheers!

Questions

Greater Understanding

If we’re not doing the best we can with what we know and learning more to do better, what do we think about ourselves, what do we feel? Should we keep asking this question until the answers become clear, until we know what to do in response?

What can we do today for the selves we’ll be tomorrow?

What do we want most for our children, ourselves, and the world?

Questions, repeated, give us access to the collective consciousness of All That Is, which, in turn, helps us gain clarity and focus on what we want.

Doing the Best We Can

Doing the Best We Can

Recently, I woke up with the words, I love you on my lips. What prompted this declaration? In the dream, I was talking to a small group of people, sharing with them the thoughts I share with you below. There is no doubt in my mind that the people in the dream world heard my words even though they were spoken in this one.

We always do the best we can and try to learn more to do better.

This is a bold statement but what if it’s true? Even at our worst, is it possible that we’re still doing the best we can and trying to learn more to do better? As Beings of Aware Energy, we’re pushed from within by the impulse to be and create and pulled from without by the promise of being and creation, the beating heart of consciousness. Think about what it takes to manage power of this magnitude as it pulls and pushes us into being or doing something or anything. I never thought deeply about this until, during meditation one day, I began to think about my parents and the rift that existed between us from childhood to my midlife years.

For the whole story, read The Healing Power of Forgiveness. It takes you step by step through the healing process that took place when I began to see my parents from a different perspective, one that took into account the challenges we all face in creating a life.

Forgiveness Knows

“Forgiveness” is a form of energy, a state of being and awareness. As soon I was able to see that my parents did the best they could with what they knew and tried to learn more to do better, I couldn’t help but forgive them for what I perceived as the lack of love and attention I wanted to experience in our relationship. As soon as the energy of forgiveness washed over me, it turned into unconditional love and I hugged the versions of my parents participating with me in my meditation.

As I mention in The Healing Power of Forgiveness, change not only took place in the realm of the psyche, it changed in reality as well. From that moment on, our phone conversations and personal visits were grounded in love and acceptance. There was one more profound realization that came out of my experience with forgiveness.

At the end of my meditation, I had a powerful OMG experience. It went something like this: If we’re all doing the best we can with what we know and trying to learn more to do better, how can we beat each other up the way we often do? It was a “come-to-Jesus” moment for me. I felt so bad for holding my parents in silent contempt for so many years, even though I never talked about it or outwardly criticized them. It’s a thought I wouldn’t have had if not for my experience with forgiveness.

Now, what if those of us who understand and appreciate this perspective take it out into the world as we carry on with the business of our lives? What if, when we look at others, we keep these thoughts in the forefront of our minds? What if we accept that everyone is doing the best they can with what they know and learning more to do better, whether we can observe it in the moment or not? What if we remember how challenging life is for everyone? How would this affect us and the people we meet? I’ve experimented with this and it works! The thought and feeling must be genuine, however. Forget about the “fake it until you make it” part.

Experiment

  1. The first step in this experiment is to get clear on the idea that we’re all doing the best we can with what we know and learning more to do better. Meditate over it or simply begin to notice that you, and the people around you, are trying to do the best they can with what they know and trying to learn more to do better. Take into account we’re all dealing with different issues in life. For some, this will be easy and for others, it will be hard. No worries, we all have to start from where we are.
  2. Step two is to realize how challenging creating a reality or living a life is for everyone and everything. Again, think about how challenging life is for you. Then look at the people, plants and animals around you and see how challenging life is for them. Exercise your ability to empathize.
  3. Step three is to realize and remember how unfair it is to beat ourselves, and each other, up, when we know how challenging life can be for all of us. It’s funny but when we reach this point, life becomes easier.

If enough of us learn to project this kind of energy out into the world, which many people already do  naturally, what will it do to transform reality? Will we see an end to the pain and oppression of value judgment and control from the outside-in? It’s my hope that changes in belief and experiments like this will open the door to value fulfillment and control from the inside-out. It’s my hope that we become a world of Conscious Creators. We’ve always been the creators of our reality because of what we believe about ourselves and the world around us. When we fully understand this and become more aware of how it works, shouldn’t we be able to do a better job? I think so.

Roger “Pete” Peterson – https://realtalkworld.com

For reference, read Sharing a Different Worldview. It contains the platform for my belief system or worldview. It’s based on what works best and makes me happiest, as opposed to “official” beliefs held by society. The final question is, what works best and makes you happiest? Affirm what you believe!

The growing library of ideas (memes*) in The LifeSong Store are short, meaningful, and easy to understand. They represent a worldview that lies hidden within our own consciousness that sees us as far more than we’re normally aware of. We create reality from what we choose to believe about ourselves and All That Is whether we realize it or not. Isn’t it time to wake up, wise up, and rise up to this greater understanding? Isn’t it time to become Conscious Creators in a Human Evolution Revolution?

* Meme – “A meme is a piece of information that is passed from one entity (person, book, etc.) to another. Often memes are social or cultural in nature and are ways aspects of culture are passed from person to person so that the information is understood.” – Psychology glossary, alleydog.com

Clarifying What We Are and How We Love to Be

Clarifying

My basic feeling tone or impulse is to seek the greatest understanding and serve the highest good. It took years to reveal itself to me in words I could understand, but once it did, it was off to the races for me! So, exploring an idea like clarifying what I am and how I love to be with others and myself is a perfect fit. After all, where is the evil in seeking greater understanding to serve a higher good? For me, this thought was a giant green light to get on with my life, to live, love, learn and evolve!

Clarifying what we are is important to me because I want to know what I’m working with. Am I forever faced with being a child of God with no rights of my own or hope of becoming something more than just a product of creation? What about the Big Bang Theory? Am I destined to be the eternal consequence of random motion and collisions of various particles of matter? Where do I find guidance and direction in an idea like this? Am I not also part of creation itself?

What about you? Is knowing what you are important to you? What if you’re something more than you’ve been told or believe? Are there any options and do you want to explore them? What about clarifying how you like to be with others so you can be relaxed and have fun? If you already do have great relationships with others, how did you create them? Does the idea of knowing how to create great relationships with yourself and others appeal to you? It does me! Not knowing how to be with ourselves or others leaves us with an uncomfortable feeling at best and downright depressed at worst. If left unchallenged, depression can turn into deep-seated anxiety. I’ve been there and done that and I don’t like it! What about you?

For reference, read Sharing a Different Worldview. It contains the platform for my belief system or worldview. It’s based on what works best and makes me happiest, as opposed to “official” beliefs held by society. The final question is, what works best and makes you happiest? Affirm what you believe!

We create reality from what we choose to believe about ourselves and All That Is whether we realize it or not. Isn’t it time to wake up, wise up, and rise up to this greater understanding? Isn’t it time to become Conscious Creators in a Human Evolution Revolution?

Sharing A Different Worldview

Whispered Questions

Adapt or Die

Ideas are the building blocks of creation. As we think, feel, act and react, we create. In other words, what we believe about ourselves and the world forms our intent, which, in turn, creates our reality. When an idea, habit, or worldview begins to create more problems than it solves, what are we meant to do? We’re meant to see it for what it is and replace it with a different idea, habit, or worldview; one that works better and makes us happier.

If we refuse to change, things will keep getting worse until we do, or we will die in our current form. We all know this intuitively, if not consciously, and have already begun to change the way we see ourselves and reality, whether we know it or not. To create my own larger picture of reality, I found that it was necessary to accept that there is no right or wrong, good or bad (value judgment or control from the outside-in); there just IS! There is what we like and don’t like, what works for us and what doesn’t, what makes us happy and what doesn’t – value fulfillment or control from the inside-out. This distinction is important because one limits our ability to change by limiting our power and sense of responsibility. The other frees our ability to change by allowing us greater power and responsibility. Which do you prefer?

We Create Our Reality

I don’t know what works and makes you happy but I do know what works and makes me happy. It begins with a different story of origin. Excerpt from (full article hidden from view at present) – Pete’s Aware Energy Theory of Being and Creation:

Aware Energy

In the beginning, there was nothing – until Nothing realized it was Something! After all, how can “nothing” exist without Something to define it? With this one shocking revelation, Nothing-Something made it possible for Anything and Everything to exist!

We can think of this momentous event as the First Vibration of Awareness and Action, the Divine Spark of Creation, the Birth of Original Thought, the First Impulse to Be and Create, the First Response to the Promise of Being and Creation, the Birth of Unconditional Love, the Birth of All That Is, the Birth of Zero and One (0 and 1, off and on, no and yes), the Birth of God, Allah or the concept of a Supreme Being.

We can also think of this defining moment as the Birth of Consciousness or Aware Energy, whose nature it is to conceive and perceive – to think, feel, act and react. In theory, it was, and is, ALL these things and more, including the moment Aware Energy or Consciousness learned how to condense a portion of itself into what we, in human form, call “matter.”

Nothing and Something, Awareness and Action – Each Needs the Other for Anything to Exist!

How can we accept the idea that Aware Energy or Consciousness is the Source and Substance of All That Is? Because, without Energy or the power to act, Awareness cannot know and express itself. And without the presence of Awareness, what defines and creates a need for Energy? Yes, one needs the other for ANYTHING and EVERYTHING to exist!

From a human perspective, “matter” itself is an illusion formed by the action of thought and imagination. According to scientific research, a hydrogen atom is 99.9999999999996% empty space. Why don’t we fall right through each other? Because electrostatic fields that attract and repulse each other provide our biological senses with the illusion of density or “solid” matter.

To borrow the immortal words of Neil Armstrong and the US Space Administration, accepting that Energy possesses Awareness, or Awareness possesses Energy, “is one small step for man and one giant leap for mankind.”

For the experience of it, imagine that Aware Energy or Consciousness, pushed from within by the Impulse to Be and Create and drawn from without by the promise of Being and Creation, is the Source and Substance of All That Is. As a Multidimensional, Vibrational Being of Aware Energy in an infinite field of Aware Energy, how does it feel to be a self-aware “I” within your body, mind and All That Is?

How does it feel to be:

  1. Both one with and separate from All That Is?
  2. Both a product of creation and creation itself?

How does it feel to know that:

  1. We think, feel, act and react (conceive and perceive); therefore, we ARE. (expanded version of “I think therefore I am” by Rene Descartes)
  2. As we think, feel, act and react, we create.
  3. To change what we create, we change what we think and feel, how we act and react.
  4. The self is our seat of power.
  5. The present is our point of power.
  6. Being and Creating what we value is the promise of power.
  7. Being and Creation are the manifestations of power.
  8. Being and Creation make the invisible, visible, the unknown, known; they create order out of chaos and make sense out of nonsense.

As a fun experiment, ask yourself: where is the “me” that existed two minutes ago. Where did it go and in what form does it exist now? In the same token, ask yourself: where is the “me” that will appear two minutes from now? In what form does it exist? What about the earth? Outside of the present, in what form does it exist?

Excerpt from We Create Our 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 and talk, it is a personal, subjective endeavor that requires creative aggression. It is a great balancing act where we 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.

This theory of Being and Creation offers an alternative to the Big Bang Theory of classical science and The Story of Creation in the Bible. It reflects much of the new thinking that is emerging, not only from curious minds in quantum physics and religion but from anyone with the curiosity to reach out to higher consciousness for new understanding.

Conscious Creators

There you have it: to change what we create, we must change what we think and feel, how we act and react. I’m not asking you to believe me; believe yourself!  You’re the one who benefits or suffers most from what you choose to believe about yourself and the world.

To get the most out of your experience, keep an open heart and mind as you read the thoughts and questions included here and on my website, realtalkworld.com, and at The LifeSong Store, hosted by Café Press.com.

Using a storefront format forces me to simplify ideas and turn them into memes* that are easy to understand and share with others. Having a storefront not only makes it possible to lay out the example of a different worldview, it includes questions we can all pose to the universe. It also makes it possible to raise money to help humanity make the jump from a value judgment world of right and wrong, good and bad to a value fulfillment world of what works best and makes us happiest, in our oneness with and separation from All That Is.

Look for the ideas that inspire you most. Share why you like them and encourage others to join the conversation. For example, if you like the meme, Making How we are more important than Who we are (see below), because it puts the emphasis more on how we treat each other, instead of how we compare or measure up to each other, send it around the web for others to think about. There is no reason why the idea of becoming Conscious Creators can’t go viral in a big way. As we post our favorite thoughts and questions to more apps, more people will join the conversation and become aware of how We Create Our Own reality.

How to use The LifeSong Store to help promote awareness of a Different World View:

Go to The LifeSong Store on Café Press by clicking the store link.

  1. Pick a store section, either “Share Thoughts” or “Ask Questions.”
  2. Pick a thought or question you like and click on it (don’t forget to read the blurbs under each image as well. They add more to understanding the significance of each idea.)
  3. Pick a product image you like and click on it. To the right of the image that comes up, click on the Facebook “Like” button or open the “Share” button to post an image on Facebook, Twitter or some other app you use.

Here’s one of my favorite thoughts or memes:

How We Are

When we make how we are, how we treat each other and ourselves more important than who we are, how we measure up or compare to each other, we make a small change within that creates a huge change without. This statement highlights one of many thought-choices we can make to expand our awareness and become more conscious of how we create reality. For example, if we make money, power, and privilege (material values) more important than love, truth, and joy (emotional values), we open the door to associated beliefs like separation, scarcity, competition, “enough is never enough” and “the ends justify the means.” When money is considered more important than what it was initially designed to do, facilitate the exchange of goods and services, it stops serving value fulfillment and idealism. Instead, it begins to serve greed, selfishness, discrimination, exploitation, fear, poverty, hunger, homelessness, disease, violence, war and, ultimately, self-destruction.

When ideas like “enough is never enough” and “the ends justify the means” become part of our belief structure, we begin to serve the self or ego at the expense of others. We fly without a guiding light or moral compass. If, on the other hand, we make values like love, truth, and joy more important than money, power, and privilege, we bring balance, not only to our own lives but the lives of others as well. This is why it is important to keep asking questions like, what are we trying to teach ourselves? What do we want to learn?

Every idea has its own validity and presents us with a choice. This seems to support the idea that we’re here to live, love, learn and evolve. Conscious Creators – always looking within and without for the best to express!
