creative endeavor we require us to
tithe our time and our
creative life energy. To tithe to our new creation also means we
will have to
sacrifice where we not put our time and energy. Tithing
our time and energy can be seen to occur in two major areas.
One tithing you will have to do is to develop a personal practice to
intuitive guidance that flows from
our creative passion.
Our intuitive guidance is essential for any
creative endeavor. Until
we have a strongly developed intuitive guidance, we will be
continually needing to provide time and attention to developing it.
Developing our intuitive guidance is probably best done by engaging
in a creative activity to bring something new into the world that
did not exist before that involves using our body in some way other
than sitting and thinking. There needs to be body movement. It is
essential the body be engaged in what you are doing. Drawing,
cutting, playing an instrument are all acceptable although we may
only be sitting. Similarly, creating
metatheaters and the
like to act out our
creative imagination is also useful for
developing our intuitive guidance.
In essence what occurs is that as we open ourselves to creative
activities, we open a communication channel to the
In creating we become a creator and we can dialog creator to

insights, have awareness, access knowledge and the like that are

have to give our time and effort to whatever our
requires us to do trusting that the universe will meet our needs in
all ways. It is essential to note here that needs are not wants. For
us to transform ourselves to live
our truth and
our creative passion, and fully express the unique consciousness within
our being our entire world may need to be stripped away and rebuilt.
We have to be willing to let go of what needs to be
sacrificed to create this new world. Although
rarely required, we do need to be willing to sacrifice everything in
our lives. Stripping away everything is not the case for everyone.
But there will be major changes. It is inevitable. To
ability and creative power at deep level will cause us
to call back our
creative life energy from much that we have created
in and with our life. It all depends on how far away from living
our truth that we have been living our life.
In this process, we will have to look carefully at what we need and
what we want. Our mind will attempt to interject itself raising all
the objections that it can to stop us. Our past will haunt us and
try and control. Our
habits will become continuous stumbling blocks
until our develop the strength of will to overcome them. Our fears
and judgments of others and our society will come screaming at us.
We may feel we are possessed by demons and evil spirits yet these
are only the types and kinds of experiences Buddha himself faced in
his journey. Through out all of this we must stay loyal to our
intuitive guidance. Buddha use to touch the ground when he was faced
with his demons and evil spirits to remind him of what was real and
what was illusion. What we feel within our body is real. What we
feel grounds our connection with the
Being that created
and sustains us and flows though us as our
creative life energy. Our
physical body, our
body wisdom and our
intuitive guidance arising
from what we feel are key. We must remain grounded and fixed on that
which is manifested, that is our body, for that is the current truth
of reality as it is, not what our
mind is trying to tell us.
creative endeavors, our
mind will do whatever it can
to us to distract us from pursuing our goal. Yet is not about
anything personal. It is just the nature of mind to create the
illusion of mind so that we can experience the creation we desire.
It just takes our time and effort to retrain our mind to create the
new illusion we desire.
