The Ageless ages wisdom maintains that the creative process is as follows:
The One Mind first manifests by producing a sea of shimmering energy that fills the entire universe - called the Akasha by the early Hindus and the Ether by 19th century scientists – this might also be the Quantum Field of contemporary physicists. This energy is the potential from which all may be materialized. An idea imposed by the Mind upon this universal energy produces the material world that we see around us.
This Akasha is a sea of unlimited energy and potential. By applying the correct creativity processes to the Akasha we can create anything.
Essentially ‘Energy follows Thought’ and one only has to visualize vividly what is required and in the fullness of time it will be materialized. The implication of this teaching is that there is an abundance of everything that any individual could possibly require. There is no shortage of anything and there is enough for everyone. It is not necessary to obtain material items for oneself by taking them away from anyone else. There is always enough for everyone.
There is a simple affirmation that is helpful in bringing this abundance about – this is:
I am creating abundance and prosperity
And achieving all my objectives
In an easy and relaxed manner
In a healthy and positive way
In its own perfect time
For the highest good of all
The Divine is unlimited, with enough for all and no shortages. This abundance is released through positive visualization, directed towards the un-manifest energy of the etheric plane, which is capable of generating limitless material wealth and artefacts.
If this is so why do we see deprivation and poverty throughout the world?
Thoughts of lack and poverty consciousness result in a restriction in the flow of plenty. Only by the individual using her skills, talents and intuition to create the maximum affluence appropriate to the community in which she lives can this be overcome. But this needs the ability to rise above the mores of the local community where these may carry expectations of poverty and lack.This is a particular situation found in Glastonbury. It is less obvious now, as new people arrive in the town, but traces of it are still to be found. This is the concept that no charge may be made for truly spiritual work. From this rises the thought one must be poor to be spiritual. The reality is that in the 21st century no one can be spiritual and deliver spiritual services without having a settled and balanced material life. This was certainly understood by the monks of old.
So the individual needs to give priority to ensuring that they have sufficient personal income to carry out the work that they are called to do.
Understanding this concept leads to the realization that income may need to be generated from mundane tasks in order to support unpaid spiritual work.
Making things more difficult may be a lack of confidence in a ‘True Calling’.
Spiritually inspired work can only be carried out with complete confidence in the inspiration being received. This in turn needs confidence in the ‘Guidance’ supplying the vision of the objective of the work.
Often It is necessary to make a leap of faith in a belief that:
If the inspired work is carried out then the needs of the individual will be met
That does mean the ‘wants' - what is desired may not always that which is truly needed.
There is unlimited abundance available –
but it will only flow if the right approach is taken to working in the world
whilst inspired by the spirit.
