Invoke The World You Opt To See
The conception of a new world occurs in the womb of one’s imagination. This statement is true only if one’s imagination helps to remove the veils that give the illusion that makes one feel separate from the environment and the Absolute. Fortunately, one can learn to remove these veils—each described subsequently.
You and I and everyone else will invoke the world we opt to see. We have the power in us, but not of us, to miraculously save the world. We alone cannot create the miracle it takes for us to save the world by transforming ourselves. But, by connecting to universal forces—the Absolute, the forces of Nature, and universal principles, for example—we can allow the miracle to occur.
Connecting with universal forces, working to save the Earth, and improving oneself requires a heroic journey guided by a fundamental truth. While engaging in a heroic journey of spiritual development or personal change it is handy to be able to identify the main maxim, the primary postulate, or the arch assumption that following the course will put into action.
Before getting to this main maxim, take the time for another personal assessment. This one will give you a current read on your overall level of satisfaction.
If this is not a day when you prefer to spend time in nature without an agenda, do the following activity:
Your Level of Self-Satisfaction
HumaNatureConnect Activity: Your Level of Self-Satisfaction. Go to a natural place, the wilder the better, find an attractive natural being, see if it retains its attractiveness for at least ten seconds, and, if so, undertake the following personal assessment: On a five point scale, with one being very dissatisfied, three being neutral, and five being very satisfied, how satisfied are you with your life as a whole, your work, your friends, the morale of your team, the morale of your friends, and the morale of your family. In a similar way, using a scale with 1 being never and 10 being always, rate your application of novelty, creativity, ingenuity, and innovation in the arenas of life intimated in the following questions: how often do you use critical thinking, open-mindedness, and good judgement?; how often do you use bravery and courage? how often do you cheat, lie, or mislead?; how often do you use honesty?; how often are you persistent?; how often do you display enthusiasm, express love or attachment, and accept love?; how often do you use street smarts, social skills, and social awareness? How often do you show team work, use fairness, display leadership, use prudence or caution, and use self-control?
