From the Tower to the Sun: using the principle of creativity in your life
The title this post addresses refers to Tarot symbology. The result of the post will be the best way to overcome life obstacles: the non-stop worry, problems, trouble and debt.
The Tower, pictorially, shows a very bleak picture for the querent or inquirer. The Tower says destruction, shock, unexpected events that are beyond our control.
The Sun represents the ultimate fulfilled life-- growth, long life, positivity, growing your own nutritious foods, health, wealth, esteem, success and all the good things it has to offer.
So how do you reach from the Tower to the Sun?
The simplest answer is with Mind. Before actions are manifest they are first conceived. This concept isn't foreign and it isn't simply gibberish or metaphysical. These are factual steps, used in everyday life and on our physical plane of our existence.
First Step--The Idea. The seed. Planting.
Second Step- The plan. The planting of the seed.
Third Step--Action, putting your plan into action. Nurturing the seed. Taking steps toward...
Fourth Step--The manifestation. Fruition. The Harvest.
This is the generic concept for manifestation of dreams, goals or actions given by many philosophies, from Atheism to Zoroastrian, and is something we all practice in our everyday life.
Jeff Love in his book, The Quantum Gods-- published circa 1976, gives a seven step model called The Creative Law or The Principle of Creativity which he says was formulated by a Research Physicist named Samuel Bousky who used the Qabalah to decode the Hebrew text of the bible. By stating that fact, Love hoped to illustrate that the Principle was forged by a man of science and not some religious quack. Take that however you wish.
The model he proposes requires conviction (faith), but more also "creative imagination and feeling." Simply put, you have to believe in what you desire and your ability to make it happen.
Determination, Drive and Passion.
You must exude passion or have drive and motivation for that something and the will to go after it-- knowing what result or outcome you want. It makes little sense to do something without will or true desire.
Be sure of what you want and that you won't change your mind later. Evaluate your position. Can you do what you have to without offending your own sensibilities? Do you have religious reservation about anything you have to or want to do to achieve your ends?
Imagine and visualize a scene that depicts already having what you want. Make it believable and be an active participant in your creation.
Maintain a positive attitude throughout the process and believe in what you are seeing; otherwise the result will be destructive. Avoid fear, anxiety, revenge, or any harmful intent from your motivation. Love also makes clear never to do anything for ego's sake. That is, be positive, but don't over do it. Or be what he call's a 'do-gooder.' Although, there is no morality built into this philosophy, it operates on the law of karma, ' you get what you pay for' or' you reap what you sow'. If your motivation is to get a pat on the back or to impress someone, you're missing the point.
Relax, close your eyes and imagine the scene you created before. See yourself as actor in a role, actively participate in your visualization. If you do not see yourself actively in the scene, you won't be 'a participant' in the result. Replay it in your mind. Always run the scene in the present tense. Never set the scene in the past, or it will never happen in the present reality. Experience the feeling you get from having your 'dream come true'. Feel the emotions, touch, taste and smell. Details are important.
Feedback happens when you replay the scene and reflect. You begin to feel and become energized by your emotions. You become convicted. Love calls this-"Feed-back from your emotional circuitry."
Now that you've sent you thought out into the universe, give it time to simmer and gestate. Believe and "'rest expectantly'." Love suggests trying this technique on something small and simple to prove it in your life such as "finding a parking space or a quarter, or have a distant, long-lost friend to contact you through letter or in writing."
This seven step model can be used for improvements in other areas of life. Get creative. Try it.
