as a two edge sword. On one side, it allows us the experience of

Our experience of forgetting
It is probably safe to say most of
us get somewhat frustrated when we forget. In fact, humanity works
very hard not to forget. We create libraries, records, archives and
the like to hold what we have learned or experienced. Much of what
any professional does is act on the information they remember about
the topic addressed by their profession to provide certain types and
kinds of services.
Whether we realize it or not, most of us seek to remember. At least
we seek to selectively remember. We desire to remember what we find
enjoyable and satisfies our wants and desires. We look to forget the
unpleasant and painful. Yet it is often the pain and unpleasantness
of life which we never seem to be able to forget.
the experience of creation (Top)
As a creator, it is in forgetting
we forget how we created the experience we have in order to have the
experience. Forgetting is what allows us to become
lost in our creation and forget we are the creator and how we
have created the experience we have. Unless we forget how we create
what we do, we will not allow ourselves to have experience which we
judge as unpleasant from our
Rather, we would move quickly to remove the displeasure we feel.
What needs to be understood, unless we have very strong motivation,
we will always act to move away from what which is unpleasant to
warm fuzzy place where we can feel safe and nurtured. Seeking a
warm fuzzy place is inherent within our being and is the place most
conducive to helping us process any pain that we feel. We all, in
one way or another, seek the
nurturing feminine creative energy. Most seek it in someone or
something external to themselves. Few find it within their own
being. But this too is nature for
is not done alone. Seeking something external to us it is part
creative/creation process in that we need another, some external
focus, in order to have experience we desire to have. Yet if we know
all of this and remember it consciously, our memory of it often
destroys the experience we desire to have.
Forgetting is what allows us to create the new and have experiences
not had. Forgetting is what allows us to live in the present moment
without a past and future. We have no idea of what the future holds.
However, our memory of the past continually projects itself into
expectations of the future. So rather than being open to what the
moment provides, we respond to the moment based on our past and the
experiences we have had. It is in remembering that we recreate the
past or create the past in a new way.
recreating the past (Top)
When we remember, we can filter
our memories and select those that have provided that most enjoyment
based on how and what we think because of the experiences we have
had. We can them act to recreate those types and kinds of
experiences or similar types and kinds of experience to have the
enjoyment they provide. It works much of the time.
However, if we are completely honest. Nothing is every as much fun
as when we have a
beginner’s mind. That is, we have no expectation on what we are
to experience. We may figure out ways to make what we experienced
more enjoyable because of what we experienced. But that very first
experience can never be had again simply because in that first we
experience had no idea of what to expect. When we are just beginning
or doing something for the first time, we have no idea of what we
will really experience. We may have some idea but we don’t really
know. This beginner’s mind allows for a different type and kind of
experience to be had.
It is the uniqueness of the experience of
beginner’s mind in any given situation that really makes
enjoyable for that is what creation/Creation provides.
Creation/creation provides for the repeated experience of beginner’s
mind. Creation/creation provides an opportunity for us to return to
that most creative state of being and the experience of spontaneous
and innocent childlike play of discovery and exploration of what we
experience. It is in forgetting that we can have such an experience.
When we remember, we bring forward both the pleasant and unpleasant
of the past when we were last in such a state of being. When we
bring that past forward, we respond to what we experience based on
that past and in effect simply recreate the past in a new way.
Forgetting is an experience
of consciousness and the essence of the illusion of
We are an
infinite creative being who has intentionally forgot who and
what it is for the sake of having a physical experience. Unless we
forget and become
lost in our creation, we will not allow ourselves to fully
experience what is presented to us. Rather than being in the
experience, we will try and create ourselves out of the experience.
If remember how we create the experience we will stop the experience
before it happens. If we forget how we created the experience, we
will still try and create ourselves out of the experience but we
will not remember how to do so. Consequently we will have the
experience. The more we can be fully present in the moment without
projecting the past, the more we can response to what the moment
requires of, and/or offers, us.
But what needs to be understood about forgetting is that forgetting
is about our conscious
mind. We never forget the experiences we have. All that we
experience at any level of our being is remembered and available to
recall to the conscious mind.
To have an experience of
we create a vehicle, a point of view , a perspective, of some type
to go into the experience of whatever we have created. The vehicle
we choose determines the conscious awareness available to us for the
experience we desire to have. That is, our conscious
mind is the product of the vehicle we choose to have for the
experience we desire.
For example, if you have ever played two entirely different roles in
life, and observe carefully, you will see you need a different type
and kind of
mind to have each experience. The mind of a woman as a mother of
a son and as a lover are different. So too the mind of a man as the
father of a daughter and as a lover. All you need to do is think
about what you are free to do as lover of a member of the opposite
sex and you are not free to do as a mother or father of the opposite
sex. There are things appropriate to the role of a lover of a member
of the opposite sex that are quite different than the role of a
parent of the opposite sex. It is those differences that allow for
the experience of being a lover as opposed to being a parent. And,
as many may have observes some people get them quite confused.
Creation works in a similar fashion. The conscious
mind for a dog for example is very different than the conscious
mind of a human being. As consciousness, each is an infinite
individuated consciousness which has an awareness that is
capable of expanding into the infinity of its own being. However,
the perspective and vehicle they have chosen for an experience of
are quite different. All the memories each has are stored in the
same way. All the memories each recall of all the experience each
has had are retrievable in the same way. However all the memories
one has had are not comprehensible within the conscious awareness
and memory of the current life time. Because of the vehicle that has
been chosen to experience creation/Creation, a dog will be unable to
fully appreciate the experiences it may have had as human.
Similarly, a human being will find it difficult to understand and
comprehend the experiences it may have had as a dog or some other
animal. This phenomenon by the way is what gave rise to the belief
in some spiritual traditions that a human can reincarnate as an
animal and how some shamans are able to have experiences of being
within the consciousness of animals or plants.
What needs to be realized here is that it is our conscious
mind and what our conscious mind is capable of remember is what
gives rise to the creation we experience. Our
ego and our
body is what determines what our conscious
mind is capable of remembering.
Our body hold or grounds our energy into a physical experience
of creation but it is our ego and who and what we believe we are
that really determines the experiences we have. Similarly,
is “set up” or designed to causes us to forget what we set out to
do. To create, we must creatively move between holding the intention
we wish to manifest and surrendering to the flow of energy created
in holding that intention and dealing with what life has to offer in
the reality in which we find ourselves. The process is actually
simple but we do not see it for what it is because our
Conscious, subconscious and unconscious intentions usually
compete with each other and the mundane of the world continually
creative life energy away from what we have chosen to create.
All that distraction in turn causes us to forget what we set out to
However, if we choose and can hold focus, we can backtrack the
creation process and do what is called reverse engineer of the
creation we experience. We simply need to continually
pull the string on the question, “Why are we having this
experiences as opposed to any other experience?” and see and/or act
on what our
intuitive guidance provides in response to that question.
Remembering and reverse creative engineering starts realizing
nature or Creation is that without a flow of energy there is no
experience to be had. All of
and any experience of creation/Creation revolves around creating and
dissipating flows of energy. That is, anything that comes into
existence whether it be a thought, an object or an experience,
arises from a flow of energy. How the flow of energy is, or is not,
free to flow determines the type and kind of creation we experience.
opening ourselves to feeling and what we feel, we can both
discern the flow of energy which is giving rise to the experience we
have and where that flow of energy is free and not free to flow.
Exploring the why behind what we feel will lead us to the cause of
what we experience.

The major ways we forget are the
same as those discussed in losing ourselves in
in the topic, "The
Need to Become Lost.” They are: lost of focus, our vehicle is
too small, and sleep. Each is discussed in “The
