I had a funny dream last night. I was giving a talk to a group of engineers. I told them that nothing would replace human ingenuity; that a robot might be able to build something but if he lost his hammer he wouldn’t be able to find it. Silly, right? But it made me think of Emerson who wrote about our awe of the great cathedrals and the pyramids, and how we ought to consider how much greater are the hands that built them.
Ernest Holmes, the founder of Science of Mind spirituality, would have said nothing we have ever done with our creative minds is as great as what we could do. There is an infinite aspect to us. We have no ceiling as far as our imagination is concerned. The interesting point is that once we imagine something, the idea itself seems to show us how to get it done!
Thomas Troward taught that ideas are living entities; they have the life force in them and contain the fully orbed form in potential, much like the oak tree is in the acorn. He said ideas that we invest with our enthusiasm and attention would naturally draw to themselves what was needed to take shape, like the nucleus of an egg, turning itself into a chicken.
Our part in the creative process is easier than we make it. All we have to do is keep our enthusiasm, belief and trust in the process active and focused. The idea knows how to generate in the outer world what belongs with it. We call that part synchronicity. I am constantly amazed at how Life has provided everything necessary to keep the creative process in full swing. What would we like to see appear in our personal experience? It is an idea. Give it some life force. Create the mental space for it to lead from within. Clear the path it requires by removing all doubt or fear.
Try this: My idea for greater levels of___________________is on the move right now, making itself into my experience. I am its partner and I am its way. I keep the path clear.”
Stay tuned in,
