Unlimited creative potential

In my last post, I wrote about the first part of the following text:

An ancient Vedic saying states: “You are not in the world; the world is in you.” It is only the veil of illusion–known as MAYA in the ancient yogic tradition–that keeps us from seeing that everything is pure consciousness. When we pierce the veil, we discover the spirit in everything and have access to the unlimited creative potential.

Before I share my thoughts about the unlimited creative potential, let me begin by saying that the biggest challenge is to describe the formless nature of our experience using words. So, see if you can look past the words and more towards what they are pointing to.

Like I  mentioned in last post, we are part of a greater intelligence that underlies the structure of our universe and everything that is within it. In science, we know that we are all made up of the same energy as everything else. So, because we are part of that energy, we have access to the wisdom that comes from this greater intelligence.

We have all had moments of inspiration, or insight, in our lives. It can be said that this wisdom came to us through thought from this greater intelligence. I’ve heard people say it came to us from our soul, or our higher self, or our unconscious, and others say it comes from God. We can call it many different things but since we are part of this greater intelligence, we are this greater intelligence and have access to it; it comes to us through thought. (In a future post, I’ll write about the difference between thought and thinking.)

This is how the first part of the phrase above connects with the second part. The more we are aware of the fact that our experience of the world is created by our thoughts, projected outside of us, and then experienced by us, the more we find that our thinking settles. As our thinking settles, it allows space for us to notice or receive more thoughts that come from our inner wisdom, which is part of this greater intelligence.

When we believe that the outside world is the cause of our experience, then we naturally and innocently have a lot of thinking about it. It’s all this thinking that often blocks or prevents us from accessing or seeing our wisdom. Don’t get me wrong, it’s always there and it does find ways to make it through all the clutter in our heads but we often miss it in the midst of everything else or even dismiss it with more thinking.

I know this is a lot to take in and feel free to contact me if you want to discuss it further. But, I can assure you that I’ll include more about this in time so don’t worry about it. What’s important to realize is that if you are looking in this direction, you will get your own insights about this, and that is when you will experience transformational change in your life.

Until the next time, may the four winds continue to help guide your way.

Lots of love,
Daniel
