Creative Dawn

What is the one thing that differentiates humans from other animals…??

What makes us unique…??

What allows for individuality and introspection??

When I think about these questions I can see how important the answer is.

And what is the answer…??

I choose to create because…


What makes possible everything in our lives…??

-In relationships, two persons planning unity and compromise.

-In envisioning a future outcome, a new possibility.

-In the ideas and insight to create, to innovate.

-In the intelligence to persevere and create a new path in life.

What is it that makes this possible…?? It is ‘imagination’: This wonderful phenomena is what betters our lives. Because this phenomena is what brings you the light of psychological expansion and freedom. Imagination goes hand in hand with great creativity, or it should; because all of us have great imagination, but not many of us great creativity. So, what’s the difference?? Why do some people have great creativity and others do not?? It is all starting with imagination. And like everything in life, imagination must be used, practiced, worked. Here’s a simple, but very direct example. What happens if you stay in bed or sitting and you don’t use your legs for a long time??

What happens is that your leg muscles lose strength, stamina; and so, it becomes truly difficult, and painful, whenever you get up to walk after such a long time. The same is with imagination. For it to be powerful, insightful, to bring intelligence and vision in your day-to-day life, it must be crafted and practiced to become great creativity. You must focus on something truly important and interesting to you, and craft, create, build your creativity. And this is not only reserved for artists, but it is reserved for anyone who seeks a better life, a better career, a better relationship, great lovemaking, great personality development, better mood and attitude, superb ideas and solutions for any stressful or serious problem you get in your life.

Everything becomes better, easier, more enjoyable with great creativity. This is because great creativity means an expansion of mind. Great creativity makes you more intuitive, more in touch with your fun side. Great creativity helps you become more easygoing, relaxed, able to see beyond the flaws and weaknesses of others, even of yourself so you gain more confidence. Imagine yourself laughing at your problems, in your relationship, in your job, in your life in general. This laughing means that your mind is not stressed, anxious, frustrated; therefore, you can now be more relaxed, and find better solutions, and be more flexible to see beyond this problem.

Imagine you let go of focusing on the flaws and things you do not like about your significant other. This means you let go of judging the other person, and now you are more centered in the best qualities of the other person. This also makes you more enjoyable, more attractive in all aspects–being mentally, emotionally, physically. And what about your moods and personality. Great creativity also allows you to access easily a more positive persona and attitude. And now you see life with different eyes, love and happiness are more attainable, and you easily choose how to feel in certain situations which might otherwise stress you and make you upset.


And now…

-We all keep great darkness inside…

-We all battle great darkness daily…

-We all have demons with which we struggle…

-But what really matters in life is what we do with these. It is about how we use and transform that darkness, those demons…

Book reviews Stories to ponder.

Barnaby Brown and The Time Machine.

This is a review for “Barnaby Brown and The Time Machine.” This is a young adult fantasy novel full of engaging action and entertainment. I found this one very intense as it goes through several stages, since it is about time travel as it moves onto a more intense plot involving aliens.

This one was a surprising read, at least for me. Surprising good, exciting, fantasy driven. The story starts with Barnaby getting used to his new school in New York, since he is a newly arrived Englishboy. But as he meets friends and the story gets interesting, we begin to see how curious he is and how much potential for something more there is now in the story. The story evolves fast, and the plot thickens. He begins to time travel and discover new things about how time works, what science can do, and finally what he holds inside. As a new arrival from another planet teaches him to protect his world from a new threat, he unleashes that potential and we see him doing fantastical things only a hero does.

This story is rich in ideas and imagination, which is particularly what I am all about since I am also writing my first young adult fantasy novel called “BENJAMIN JONES. The Call of The Shaman” to be released soon. I felt transported to all the places and situations in the story. “BARNABY BROWN and The Time machine” is very well-written and very creative. I find that we all need some of this to ease our own minds and expand our imagination. I really recommend this one. Personally, I like the fact that all of the author’s books aim to expand imagination, and these stories push you to ask yourself “what if I was in this situation?? What would I do??” The situations are somewhat fantastical, highly imaginative, and they offer great insights into reality.

I give him a great 4 stars.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

He says…

A Scot now living in Singapore, which means I’m confused by warm rain and freezing cold cinemas. Nevertheless, I have some fantastic space and views to allow my creativity to wander.

I completed my first book in Scotland, a test, to see if I could get through the process and layer stories to keep them fluid and fun. Everyday, my 3 hour round trip on the bus from Edinburgh to the Scottish Borders allowed me a little sandbox in which to bury myself and focus.

I love adventure, let’s face it, who doesn’t? My work so far is science fiction but with a strong tether in reality. It’s situational, questioning how you would react in these circumstances. The first book was focused on adults but now I’m working on a series (Barnaby Brown) that I think encapsulates the best elements of all true universal adventures and is aimed to children and adults alike, an adventure they can all take at bedtime or whenever.

New worlds of magic.

Quite often, it so happens that people fall into fascination–fascination for TV celebrities, for the politics battle, for lifestyles of this and that, unhealthy food commercials, etc. This takes over their lives. Of course, without them realizing it; because it is a subconscious takeover. They claim to choose to do what they do in order to feel good about themselves, but the reality is that they are prisoners of what the TV has put into their minds.

But outside this prison, there is much more to discover. I know, I was there; and now I am outside the prison. Books. Stories. New information. Philosophy which makes us think. Adventures to expand our own imagination. This is my world now, and it is why I write this post and all that I write. The greatest asset we have as human beings is the capacity to steer our lives and be happy, to be conscious and learn. Well, great part of this is what good books do, because they expand your awareness. Let’s say, for example, you are having a bad day, you are hurting, you lost someone special, you are somehow troubled. How do you move on…??

Well, if your mind is full of society’s turmoil, anxiety, and nonsense, be it from TV or any other gossip, then you have not much opportunity to move on. But if your mind is powerful, imaginative, filled with great knowledge from books, then you can have the strength and imagination to immerse into other activities instead of wallowing in your hurt. This goes hand in hand with spiritual growth, because spiritual (not religious) growth is about greater awareness, thinking for yourself, and detaching yourself from society’s influence.

The Greatest Clarity.

So, I was thinking the other day about imagination, the power to create, not just works of art but to create solutions and a better life for oneself. Because that is what imagination does. Imagination is meant to expand our minds, not make us more intellectual but more compassionate and able to create from emotional understanding. The more imagination, the more you will understand of yourself, life, others. The more imagination, the more intelligence.

As a writer of nonfiction, of spiritual and self-help, and now of young adult fantasy books, I know the great gifts of imagination. I know how strengthening this “muscle” in your mind gives you expansion of mind and great wisdom. And I was writing the other day, just finishing my young adult novel coming out soon, titled “BENJAMIN JONES. The Call of The Shaman” which I am planning to make a series.


I was thinking how many of us simply fall into addiction and depressions due to not strengthening imagination. If you have imagination, then you can envision yourself happy, in love, positive, without anxiety and addictions. How wonderful it is to see yourself better in your mind, and then it is easier to adopt healthier habits. This is something which intelligence gives you. True imagination expands your intelligence, so you see yourself making better choices. And if you can see it, then you can change and do it.

The illusion…

bb04fedff011022b9085b74d121c2fc7--deepak-chopra-fishbowl

-A thought is meant to be explored, analyzed, studied.  Don’t just follow thoughts, beliefs, ideas, opinions.  This thought will grow on you, create your feelings, create your character, and guide your choices and behaviors.  Realize this.

-A thought appears in your awareness.  What do you do…??  Knowing that this thought is there is your first clue to analyze it, without overthinking; just feel its presence, its motive and reason.  A thought makes you, makes your experience. 

-A thought begins everything in your life.  Life is but a thought which creates a stream of thoughts in your mind.  These thoughts create the world and all your experiences.  This thought is the illusion of this existence, but you must explore its content to be a better human being.

A very personal decision.

 

Thoughts2-777x437

 

For thought to manifest, to create beauty out of ugliness, to attract wealth out of poverty, to bring health out of an unhealthy body, you need higher intelligence, higher projections of imagination.

Animals do not have this.  Plants do not have it.  They are literal, what you see is what you get.

But in our human existence, the ugliest man can make the most beautiful woman fall in love with him, the unhealthiest person can become the healthiest one, the poorest person can become the richest, the dullest individual can become highly intellectual and talented, etc. etc.

All these accomplishments and more are manifestations or creations of our higher minds, of higher imaginations to be more precise; hence, humankind has been gifted with higher states of imagination, so what we imagine, without fear and with divine patience, we can manifest throughout our lives.

Evidently, it not only takes imagination but our own effort; therefore, we have been given the most powerful tool to build, but we must use it properly and without obstacles to building–i.e., without fears in our minds.

And it is funny that the same powerful tool given to us also brings the most powerful enemy into us, fear.  So we may create better futures for ourselves or we may destroy our futures by the same power, namely Imagination.

 

And it is a very personal decision though. 

Question is:  How would you use it…??

Create!

original

As human creatures we have developed the power of visualization, which is the power of higher creativity and language; hence, we can create more than any other creature we know, because we mesh images with language in our minds–i.e., language reveals stories, symbols, it brings powerful meaning to those images.

This tells us that no matter our surroundings, our circumstances, if we can create with belief and faith, through patience and commitment in our minds, then we can manifest better futures in our surroundings through that mental creation.

This goes beyond physical reality, to create from thought into matter, and that is why it is very difficult to understand and even to believe for most people.  And also because to actually create, the mind has to have no fear and doubt that it will manifest; hence the difficulty for most people who are attached to the material reality and have formed strong bonds with this same physical reality.

So one needs to walk away from physical reality to create and begin manifestation, which means to detach oneself from the obsession of matter and the world, which means to direct your attention inwardly and stop putting so much faith, trust, stress, excitement in the physical out there.

The problem is thinking that your current situation cannot be changed, because in this lies fear and self-doubt.  People overthinks and speculates how to reach something, how to achieve something in life out there; however, they ignore and avoid the origin of all physical reality, which is thought and emotion in them.

 

Thus when you create with thought (visualization) and emotion (strong emotional connection within that same visualization) then you are directing your attention inwardly and creating your life from its very origins–i.e., from within the micro-world to manifest into the macro-world.

The Origin of Creation.

By living one’s moment in full, energetically and with determination, the present and the future may be reconciled, befriended, united in harmony.

Because the problem is that by being worried, stressed, anxious about an outcome or future, we are unknowingly dividing the present from the future–i.e., I ignore my present and imagine a future or possible scenario, and this duality brings some form of disorder and chaos in the mental plane.

This game of mental representation or imagination is truly pointless, because it steals you from the actual origin of the creation of a better future–i.e., the eternal moment you live now.  You unawares choose one false scenario and leave aside the real one.  How can this help you…??

In just a few instances this imagination, this mental representation can indeed help you prepare for a future or become acquainted with something that may indeed happen; however, most of the time, this is pointless, because the origin of the future is not the future but the present lived thoroughly aware.

Obsession, anxiety, excitement, attachment, expectation for something not yet here can have its poisonous effects on your very biology, not just on your psychological and emotional states but on your immune system as well.  All stress in time can turn out to be lethal.

50805313_623375748095791_2817863021395705856_n

The best thing you can do is to remain aware and planted on your moment, caring about what you do in the Now, working the best you can to build yourself and your life from the origin of Creation itself.

Beauty is in all things, from birth to death, from sunny days to an apocalypse, because beauty is the change which is brought by Natural Law; and this change creates evolution in existence, which goes far beyond the physical, of course. 
But for the human mind to respect and see the beauty in everything, the activities of someone’s rigid ego have to be realized, and in order to do this the mind must be clear of confusion, strict rules, dogmas, personal views and opinions, it must expand and reconcile with the whole of existence. 

For this, the mind must stay in the moment, reconcile with the Now, remain aware of what is currently happening–the experience whether pleasant or not. 🙏

Supra-consciousness: Guided by The Beyond.

index

Read this carefully: Imagination, Inspiration, and Intuition are the three obligatory steps to be guided by Spirit, by The Holy Ghost, by your godliness. This is the state of Supra-consciousness, beyond all intellect.

Feelings are a direct product of thoughts.  Mind then is the realm of feelings.  The rule of the demiurge, through the constant intrusion of the ego-mind, is to make you react to desires, fears, situations, and to whatever you experience–pleasant or unpleasant; and so, this constant psychological behavior is always supported and originated by your subconscious program.  The human creature who is not truly self-aware then falls into these tricks of the Infernal Mind, always creating feelings and reacting to them without a conscious thought process, without a higher rationality.

All this nonsense clouds our inner wisdom and understanding of ourselves and the world, thus intuition gets lost to the mind of the reactive individual.  A person who just lost his job or lost a loved one allows himself to be ruled by thoughts of fear which design intense feelings of frustration, anger, and emptiness or some form of loneliness; therefore, it seems this person is attached to his intense feelings, he becomes blinded by them, he compares himself to other people and becomes envious, violent, lowering his vibrations and blocking himself of bliss and greater opportunities in his path.

But, on the other hand, if he decides to not answer the intense call of his natural animal and remain confident and strong in the face of the unknown, then his mind can be silent enough to listen to the whisper of intuition.  In the world of Intuition, we only find omniscience.  The world of Intuition is the world of the Being.  It is the world of the Innermost.  Now, again, imagination, Inspiration, and Intuition are the three obligatory steps to be guided by Spirit, by The Holy Ghost, by your godliness.

The voices…

“What if I cannot do it??”  “And what if he/she does not return my feelings??”  “My life is already too difficult and I cannot do more!”  “What if they do not like me??”  “What if they don’t take me seriously??”  “What if I am not good enough??”  “I cannot accomplish my dreams ever.”…  Too many “What if” and “cannot,” don’t you agree…??  So, let us think with clarity stepping out from any fear your mind might have, just for a moment–  Who says “What if” and “cannot”…??  Who brings you down…??  Who gives you these defeating ideas and fears which keep your body paralyzed…??  Is it your mind/your ego/the one who likes to keep the status quo and things as they are…??
37350857_505799143186786_1691795241461350400_n
And we can all agree that sometimes, just a few times, fear may help us get inner strength and maybe also get some good analysis and critique of our situations; nevertheless, you must see that it can also cripple you and make you feel worthless, it can degrade you and tell you lies through overthinking and images of really damaging and speculative imagination.  And imagination is a divine gift but also a curse.”  Think about this for a second.  Realize what it means for yourself.

Your ego does not know the real you, your mind is the content of the world, the content of your experiences, the content of what you have been taught and given by example since childhood; thus, your mind cannot actually see reality, it cannot see you and all you are.  Your mind is in charge to protect you, and that is why it is bound to keep you safe and sound by not allowing you to see all you could be and accomplish if you dare say “I love you” to someone, or “I am a god or goddess” to yourself in all situations, or “I will get this!” to your passionate drive, or “I can overcome all my losses and challenges” to your aching heart or to the ego who produces this pain.

The ego works with imagination, your mind is imagination–imagination to create, to find greater ways to love, to accomplish more.  But imagination which is not controlled or disciplined, but ruled by your ego, is tyranny which enslaves you and keeps you chained to a mental desk; it brings out voices of despair, of sadness, of misery, of hopelessness…  This you must see and discipline your mind so you do not fall onto this trap; because you must recognize between the voices of your ego and the whispers of your Higher Self…
