“Reality creation” is the dynamic action of the creative force which possesses us. Reality can always be altered, changed and recreated, as it has since the beginning of time.
We have chosen many realities, created by the collective ego, to live through. No reality is permanent. No epoch or age of man is static. No history, personal or collective, has ever been repeated or re-created in identical ways. The flow of reality changing through time constitutes history. It is a map of the variety of realities created throughout consciousness. Consciousness projected outward creates reality. Reality reflects changes in consciousness. Consciousness is never static. Reality ceases to exist without consciousness.
Reality changes are desired products of the will. The will belongs to ego, unless it belongs to God. Reality changes constitute the endless cycle of ego creating a counterfeit Garden. History proves that there is no beginning nor end to the creative output of ego. Is any one reality real or more real than another? Is any one period of history better or worse than another? These realities are extensions of consciousness and are willed by self.
Consciousness & the Mirror
At most, the projections of consciousness serve to remind us of the inner state. This picture presented to our physical eyes and mind can convey that which we cannot discover inwardly. All outward phenomena is to be read with this in mind - that it represents spiritual ideas.
Some cannot do battle in the street, but do so in the office. Some do not understand spiritual principles as they stand alone, but must see them in picture form outwardly. Our mirror is very accurate.
We like to pity those who are not like us. We feel remorse over the unfortunate circumstances that people bear. We pity, but also fear that these circumstances could happen to us. We define suffering very much by outward circumstance. The poor are to be pitied more than the rich. The victim deserves our sympathy more than the avenger. But turn the mirror and see who really is victim and who avenger. See who is poor and rich. We should not choose our object of pity and blame by circumstance alone, for suffering of the royalty is as harsh as suffering of the outcast or the derelict. Suffering itself is the object, not to be delimited by circumstance.
Remove, then, the outward form from the essence. Without form, essence can be accurately gauged. Remove the form from reality to see.
Thought forms and patterns fit this problem too. What is behind thought, you may ask? The substance is the same.
If this topic be new to the novice, he must face a fierce choice. He can continue to believe reality and thought, or risk these pillars of his identity by sitting calmly in the darkened theatre devoid of lights, props and script. What will he find?
