The perspective we hold in
observing the creative process will determine what we see and how we
creative/creation process works. What needs to be understood is
that any one perspective will not give us the understanding to fully
utilize the creative/creation process. Rather, we will need to have
a composite of views and understand how the views are
interconnected. This is the result of our finite
mind observing a process larger than mind as we know it and
experience it can fully comprehend. It is trying to
put the infinity into a finite box.
What need to be understood is that our
mind arises as result of the creative process we are trying to
study. It is in the process of continually being created by the
creative/creation process of which it is a part. Given the
nature of mind, it is a
creative living process continually recreating itself by the
experiences it has.
Whether we realize it or not, in trying to understand the
creative/creation process, our
mind is trying to perceive something greater than itself. Mind
may never fully understand the particular process which gives rise
to its existence. However, it can observe the creation process as it
unfolds around it to piece together a pretty good understanding of
the process which created it. This understanding, in turn, assists
us in our creative endeavors. When we act based on any one view we
may be holding we can then have some understanding exactly how we
are affecting the overall process.
What is meant by this is that within the
energy consciousness model perspective,
creation/Creation is a
dance between energy and consciousness at each and every level
of Creation. Consciousness creates as a result of what it holds in
mind. What this means is that there is a
transcendental mind, a mind which transcends the creation we
experience, that gave rise to both physical Creation and ourselves.
Some call this transcendental mind God but that is not necessarily
the case. It is just a mind that transcends the existing creation.
Whenever our mind, our
enculturated mind choose to act rather than surrender to what
is, it creates and changes and/or shifts the flow of energy created
by the transcendental mind. This is not necessarily good no bad. It
is just that the mind created by the creation process (the
enculturated mind) finds it very difficult to understand the process
that created it for every time it act on what it knows in some way
it changes the process it is trying to observe. One way to help get
around this problem is to have multiple views and see what each view
provides. The realize what we seek gives rise to all those views and
is somehow a composite of all of them.
Based on the understanding that energy and consciousness are
different aspects of the same essential material of the Universe out
of which all else is created energy and consciousness are seen to
exist in a duality much like the
wave-particle duality of light found in physic. As such, this
energy consciousness can be experienced as energy, or as
consciousness, depending on how one chooses to observe. This means
the creative/creation process can be seen and an energy
transformation process, a consciousness transformation process or an
energy consciousness process. Each of these view provide different
insights about the process and how it is interpreted.
But these are not the only perspectives from which to view the
process. Each of these three views can be overlaid with the
following four views.
The process can be viewed from within the process. Using the human
being as a example, this view is reflective of the view we each have
as we look out through our eyes.
The second view is the creation is viewed from outside the process
with the focus on observing the creation without regard of the
creations relation with its environment. Here we see a human being
as separate from the environment which created it. In this view one
does not see how the creation is integrally connect with its
environment. Here we neglect the fact that the human being must have
food, air and water to live and it is the produce of the social
environment in which it find itself.
The third view is where the creation is seen as existing in an
interconnectedness with its environment. Here we see a human being
as part of the environment which created it. In this view one see
how the creation is integrally connect with its environment. Here we
address the fact that the human being must have food, air and water
to live and it is the produce of the social environment in which it
The fourth view is from the perspective of the whole
creative/creation process included both the seen and unseen
aspects which gives rise to the specific creation under observation.
Here the human being and physical Creation are seen as integrally
connected and physical Creation is see within the context of a
larger unfoldment of Creation.
Each of these views provide different insights about the process and
how it is interpreted for a total of twelve different set of
insights. The question is, “Which of these insights are the most
useful way to view the
creative/creation process for what you wish to create?”
What is most interesting about this process given all the different
ways to view the process is that the typical human views the
creative/creation process as existing outside and separate from
themselves. We fail to see that we are a creation unfolding. Every
human will admit that they age and their body changes. But few see
our lives as a creation unfolding within on ongoing
creative/creation process. Failure to consider our unfoldment as a
creation and that we are a
creative living process continually recreating ourselves has a
significant impact on how and what we observe and the conclusions we
can, and will, draw from our observations.
Since we are unfolding within the creative process and continually
recreating ourselves as a
creative living process, our perspective about the process is
significantly biased if we don’t take into account our own movement
and change. So it is imperative that we look to the creative process
as it exists and unfold in the world around us and then realize it
is also happening to us.
To get around this issue, in addition to using multiple perspective
the approach taken built on the methods and assumptions used by
Einstein. These allowed for insights about the process that
probably would not have been attainable otherwise.
As suggest by the
Bohr Approach that helped to revolutionize physics, we look to
nature to see what it reveals about how we create our experiences
and the reality of those experienced. In keeping with the
energy consciousness as reflected in the
energy consciousness model, what we observe in the world of
energy is directly applicable to the world of consciousness. Using
Einstein's assumptions which were proven correct, the laws of
creation are the same for us and for any other aspect of creation.
There is much we can learn about how we create from Nature when we
apply the Bohr and Einstein approach.
Given the variety of views that are possible, there are many
analogies that can be used to describe the process or parts of the
process. Each analogy can be expected to emphasizes a different
aspect of the process. Namely, the aspects of the creation process
as determined by the view that is held. Yet, for whatever analogy is
used, we need to stand back and try to see what the analogy is
actually trying to communicate and not take the analogy literally
and/or as THE answer. Unfortunately, many believe the analogy rather
than seeing what the analogy is trying to communicate.
No one image or description will adequately addresses all that needs
to be understood about any one step in the creative process. Only in
the conscious experience of the creative process will you come to
understand what the analogies and descriptions are trying to
communicate. There is no other way than to consciously and directly
experience it. Unfortunately what is provided here cannot give
anyone that experience. We will have to choose to create something
and become aware of the process as we experience it. What is
provided here is information that will help you to become more aware
of the process as you experience it.
