truly believe that each and every one of us is so tremendously
creative that should we allow ourselves to truly believe in this power
of creation within us that we would all be living amazingly wonderful
lives. Oftentimes when people think about creativity they get
the wrong idea about the process and believe it has to do with a new
invention or something similar. Our thinking is
"creativity" ... always creating. And what we create
is determined by what we "choose to think about" ... which
is why the ancient sages called us to "pray without ceasing"
... in other words to think towards the positive and which brings
forth a greater good and even more good than we have previously
It is in
our realization that we create by thinking and choosing from
consciousness that gives us the power to make positive changes that
benefit us and the world in which we live. Dr. Robert H. Bitzer,
in his book "Collected Essays of Robert Bitzer" wrote to
this in these words: "If
you create something you do not like, you can change it. What
you create you can un-create.
If conditions do not loosen
their grip on you, perhaps you are not in your effective place.
Consciousness establishes its own conditions. If things in your
outer world are not moving fast enough, you need to clear your
consciousness. Perhaps you are not doing what you really want to
do and are trying to use willpower to make things happen. Don't
try to go through the stone wall. God back in
consciousness. Change your idea; change your evaluation.
Resistance, obstructions, and opposition could mean you are off your
Get still and let the new idea come
through. Find yourself on your right path. Here things
work smoothly, joyously, and powerfully. Stop struggling and
forcing. "Not by might, nor by power, but by my
spirit." Let God be you."
must never lose sight of the truth that what we think with conviction
will become our experience. As Dr. Bitzer would teach, our
expectations and mental acceptance make this so. And so it is up
to us to realize that "thinking" is the most powerful thing
that we do. As we realize that G-d is not a creator but the
Source of creation this becomes more real to us. As we begin to
get still as a daily spiritual/mental practice and allow new ideas to
come to us then we can think towards those specific things that create
the manifested idea in our experience. In doing so, we let G-d
be the good within us to a greater more powerful degree.
SO IT IS!
