We have been told so many times that we are creative beings, so creative in fact that we are actually co-creators with God, which I know a lot of us have a difficult time with, but go with it, get used to it, because in time you will understand it.
We also know that this means nothing to the bricklayer, the artist or the surgeon who might generally be seen as creative, for the true creativity takes places before ever a hand is raised, a brush, trowel or scalpel taken up.
These things, these tools are all our implements that are necessary for the third dimensional making. Our constant creative effort takes place in a different dimension. It is the dimension of the mental body linked with the memory that exists in the ether that surrounds us and it is this aspect of ourselves that either accepts or rejects our experience as truth or not.
Abraham looks upon the process from the point of energy, of vibration, of thought:
Everything that has ever been lived, everything that has ever been written down or documented, has been vibration first. Everything has been conjured in vibration first before it manifests. So if something has manifested and you continue to give it your attention, the fact that it is true should really hold no weight with you.
The question that we would ask is not, is it true, or is it undeniable? The question that we would ask is, how does it make me feel when I focus upon it? And if the answer to the question is, it doesn’t make me feel very good when I focus upon it, then we would say, true or not, it does not serve you. And if you will activate a different part of your vibration-the “truth” will shift.
Your belief and consequent concentration, on whatever you experience, and how it makes you feel is all that matters. We are, by Divine Right, meant to be healthy and happy individuals full of joy. Don’t do what makes you feel bad, don’t do what makes you ill, only do that which keeps you in the peak of health feeling joyful at all times.
For a different take on truth, remember that there are certain things that were Soul set-ups for you to experience and whatever they are can be accepted in the following way as explained by Sai Baba:
There is no scar on the sky, though clouds, stars, the sun and the moon all appear to streak across it. So too let a thousand ideas streak across the mind, ensure that your mind remains unaffected and serene.
Get firm in mind; then, your reason also will not deviate. Without that equanimity or shanthi, you can get no soukhyam (happiness).
Saint Kabir had no food for three days – but he thanked God for giving him the coveted chance of observing a ritual fast.
The great devotee of Rama, Saint Ramadas was confined in prison – and he thanked God that he got a place where he could meditate on Him without disturbances.
Such is the attitude of the saintly, those who are the beloved of the Lord.
– Divine Discourse, May 23, 1965.
Makes you wonder, ‘What is your truth ?’
