creative/creation process to many looks mysterious. Creative
ideas, thoughts and inspiration seem to arise out of no where. They
seem to arise out of a “no-thing-ness.”
Many meditation traditions talk about observing the space between
thoughts. It is seen as a quiet silent place. A place of
“no-thing-ness” out of which the thought arise. However, few talk
about the origins of thoughts and where they really come from. The
seem to simply arise out of a “No-thing-ness.” Yet, nothing can be
father from the truth.
What needs to be understood is that there is no mystery as such and
nothing eludes us. It is only a question as to whether or not we
have sufficiently and accurately focused our attention and awareness
on what we desire, on what we wish to create or wish to unravel or
Creation is considered a mystery for several reasons. We think we
don’t know how it started and many of its processes seem to be
unknowable. Many humans perceive there to being unseen realms to
Creation. These realms are seen as realms of spirits and other none
physical entities. Some perceive the unseen realms is where God or
the Creator of Creation resides. These unseen realms are seen as
something causing Creation to arise and the lie behind Creation. How
much these unseen realms influence Creation can be a matter of
debate and depends on the
school of thought to which one subscribes.
A mystery is something that is not or cannot be known, understood or
explained. Similarly we consider a mystery is any action or thing
that arouses curiosity or suspense because it is not fully revealed
or explained. A mystery seen as something obscured in a darkness and
it is especially seen as something that conceals a secret.
But is this really the case? Is Creation really a mystery and are
its processes mystical and secret? Are their unseen realms
controlling or influencing our fate? Is Creation something that
cannot be known? Or do we loose our selves in Creation both
forgetting how creation works and forgetting what we came to do?
It is here where we run into the first issue in understanding
creativity, that is, there are two parts to this mystery. One part
is the mysterious aspect of ourselves and the second is the
seemingly mysterious aspect to the Creation external to us. The
perception of mystery in Creation only exists because we have
allowed ourselves to forget what we came to do. We forget
because of both the habits of our mind and the distractions arise
from Creation itself and the creative process. Whether we realize it
or not, we have in fact created our own mysteries. We set that stage
to fall into this predicament of forgetting by the perspective we
choose to hold.
creativity perspective, and embracing the to concept
Creative Relativity, the mystery that seems to exist about the
creative process and about what occurs in the unseen realms is
because of the perception we hold and how we are viewing what we are
observing. There are two perspective or two aspects to the
perspective we hold that keep us from seeing the creative process.
One is the perspective from which we view Creation and the other is
the perspective from which we view ourselves.
Understanding the view from
within the creative process
Creation is a process of ebb and
flow into and out of form. When you are inside the process, inside
the ebb and flow, or looking at the creation from within the world
of the creation, every creation will have a life cycle. That is, you
will see a birth or creation, a manifestation and sustaining of that
creation, a death or destruction of the created form, and then
silence or non existence.
However, the silence or non existence one experiences is only
another life cycle that happens in the unseen realms. When you are
outside the creation process one sees something slightly different.
Seen from the world of creation the creative process there is a
birth, manifestation, destruction followed by a dissolution and
reformation in the unseen that, in turn, is followed by another
The unseen outside the world of creation appears as a silence when
viewed from the world of the seen or rather the world of experience.
That is you are experiencing the creation itself. But in the unseen
part of the cycle there is no silence. Rather, things are happening,
they are only unseen because you are viewing from the part of the
cycle where you experience the creation. This perceived silence is
the period that allows for a dissolution of the created form into
the raw materials necessary for the new manifestation.
Understanding the perspective
that allows us to forget we are the creator of our experiences
As discussed in the topic “Making
music analogy for the creative/creation process,” a way to being
to understanding these two perspectives is best represented by the
example of how we make a musical note. When music is made, a string
is plucked or a string is struck by a hammer and a sound is made.
However, in the silence after the note there is an unheard finger
getting ready to pluck the string or a hammer being raised to strike
the string again otherwise there would be no more music.
Preparations are being made and action is being taken to make the
In this example, hearing is the world of the seen, hearing is the
world of experience. To the world of hearing, the world of the seen,
the music if followed by silence. But in the world of the unseen,
activities are occurring for the next creation. It is just what is
happening is not “heard,” seen or experienced in the world of
experience. This is true for any creation. The silence following the
death or passing of a creation is only the preparation phase for the
manifestation of the next creation. What is occurring is only unseen
to the world of experience.
In looking at the music analogy, you can see how the existence of an
unseen realm is only because of the perspective we hold in viewing
the creation. Whenever we view from within the world of the creation
whether as the creation or from within its world, there will be a
part of the
creative/creation process that will be unseen. The overall
creation process is more of a sine wave oscillation into and out of
a created form, or if you wish look at the creative process being
two life cycle curves. One life cycle is the creation and
manifestation and the other is the dis-creation and dissolution or
If we acknowledge the
equivalence of energy and consciousness, we can look to nature
to get an unbiased understanding of the
creative/creation process. Then in becoming a detached witness
as suggest in the topic “Making
music analogy for the creative/creation process” we can see into
the unseen realms to look for the creative/creation process that is
giving rise to what we are experiencing and/or our own life.
Whether we realize it or not, there is an organization to the unseen
world. It is infinite. We do not normally see it and experience it
because it is not the world of physical experience in which we have
become accustomed to living. We are not observing in a way that
allows us to see into the unseen. It is much like the example of
music. When we are experiencing listening to the music, we do not
experience all that goes on in the unseen world, that world you
cannot hear, to make the music.
It must be understood, the eye through which we are trying to see
the unseen will not allows us to see it clearly. In many ways
becoming physical blinds us to the world of the unseen. That is by
design so that we can have the experience of creation/Creation. All
we can do is feel our way thought it for it is a world of energy not
really any different than physical creation. But it needs to be
understood, this world is not separate from us. It is here and now,
fully present before us and within us. That is why we can feel our
way thought it. If we had different eyes we would see it but all
that can been seen from a human perspective is a bright light. It is
much like looking at the sun - all we can see is a bright light and
we become blinded to seeing anything else. Yet under the correct
conditions we can observe this unseen world and that is what mystics
have tied to create for millennia. However, even if we see into this
unseen world it must be remembered we are experience on a tiny
fragment of an infinite Creation. It is like coming from another
planet and visiting a large city and saying the rest of earth looks
exactly like the city you experienced.
As we being to work with the
creative/creation process we will begin to see, or rather it
should be said, feel some of the organization which exist in the
unseen. We will be able to come to use this understanding to help us
to create our reality and the experiences we desire. We have
repeated evidence of this in our lives because “any old thing” does
not manifest. Rather only specific things under specific conditions
will manifest. The fact that creation and manifestation is condition
dependent in itself points to an organization to any unseen realm.
It also clearly points to the fact that we only need to become aware
of what environments cause what type of effect. We only think things
are unknown and/or chaotic because we have not observed sufficiently
through our ability to feel them to characterize them.
