When we create, we make a choice. In that process that leads to the moment of creation, which we call conception, our intention and focus are what partially determines the nature of what it is that is about to be created. For everything that we create in this world, there is a corresponding sacrifice that is made to make that creation possible. So then creation is an act of personal love where one sacrifices something one treasures in order to create something one loves.
Such is the nature of conception. Yet in the process of creating we often forget to take into account the side effects of what will happen after we create what it is that we are creating. Those side effects can be positive or negative to the degree we are conscious of our decision. Yet having that sort of power inevitably leads to more demands for a more complete level of awareness to manage the ever expanding consequences of our decisions, and of course, their outcomes. Hence the need for what is derisively shot down continually, which is ego.
The creative act involves being present in the moment to such a degree that one must commit to it fully in order to get anything out of it. This means that what one treasures in terms of time must be given first and foremost to create a disciplined product, the focused measure of one's labor. In addition to time, energy, and will, creation in this world requires motivation and determination without which the process will be dropped by anyone who doesn't like the experience of dealing with phyiscal resistance. Yet everything we do in this world is bought at the price of having to experience the overcoming of physical resistance through the application of willpower and command of the will.
What then is worth so much and is so precious that could demand this full and complete sacrifice of our precious selves? Love of some thing, person, place, or idea is certainly partially an answer. Yet beyond this is something even more magical and inexplicable. A divine demand within our very soul that asks to be fulfilled. A need to be more than what we are in this moment. A need to grow into a more complete and fullfilling role by offering Love as a choice to others. This sort of odd situation rarely comes up except in strange and often unfulling rituals such as what we currently call "romance" where the free loving spirit is often crushed under the burden of ritualized modes of relating and imposed expectations. While the quest for Love itself leads to the conception of an unconscious mode of relating to Love through the objects of the quest, the true quest for Love only happens when we step out of the program of unconscious conception and accept our responibility as conscious creators. This moves us from the mundane level of doing what is expected of us and expecting something or nothing in return according to our daily mood and into a space where our very being is fired up and ready to explode with pure genius.
The nature of such an experience is divine because it is an internal relating to ourselves as a creator, a god of our own making. This is more than just the weak willed "channeling" of the divine practiced by so called psychics. This is a living, breathing godhood where you walk with yourself, being your own shepard, beleiving in you and your divine birthright. It is not an easy path because of the world and its expectations. The world doesn't beleive in your right to be free (right now at any rate) because people have a hard time relating to the true spirit of creation within themselves. They shut down their divine nature because of the programming and then they blame those who acheive conscious creation within themselves out of fear that they will lose control to them. Yet, this is what happens time and time again throughout history. The conscious conception overpowers the unconscious conception because of the choice of the believer, the one that chooses. All great ideas are first ridiculed, violently opposed, and then accepted as the gospel. The path of the world's hypocrites remains that same as it always has been. They will pretend to believe anything in order to gain something outside of themselves that validates their lack of inner worth.
Our societies have lost the power of conscious conception because they no longer believe in their own vision. The west has lost its way completely in the dark. There is no cause today for which people have any real great belief in. Everything has become a means to an end, and that end has become an increasingly greedy and bad one for everyone. It short, we are on the dead end path to nowhere.
Yet, there exists a silver lining in all of this. We still have the power to choose Love by enpowering ourselves enough to challenge this dead end outcome. We still have time to breathe and make things right. There is still time to heal yourself and your world. In order to do this you must first believe in yourself enough to know that you have the power to change and make the world a better place. This is essentially the only choice available other than to breathe and be a passive observer. Everything else is not really a choice but an unconscious surrender of your authority to be complete in yourself to someone or something else outside of you. And that is a insult to your divine heritage, and it cannot stand. The alternative to being divine is to reject your divine nature and resume the pointless road back to the programmed life you have been lead to believe is actually yours by someone else who wants you to live under their rules and their control for their convienence. Is that really what you want? Somehow, I doubt it. So then, you have the power to choose your fate up to the degree that you understand yourself and in doing so walking away from the illusion of life as it is sold to you to pursue life as someone who believes in their ability to consciously conceive an alternative. That, dear reader, is the nature of the power within. You can call it divine power if you'd like. But it is found at the center of our very nature as beings, deep within your mind, heart, and soul is a real human being waiting to be born. And all of creation works for the moment of the emergence of this conscious creator within, the real God, with all the splendor and awesomeness that makes the journey through your lies worth the trip.
It is once again time for us to make a choice. Are we going to surrender to self destruction or to our loving nature? The choice seems obvious. In fact, there really isn't any choice. Everything in the universe points to the obvious and only your fears, doubts, and insecurities prevent you from seeing and beleiving in it. You are the one, and it is time to rise. Become the phoenix and doubt your true nature never again.
