So which is it: I'll believe it when I see it... or I'll see it when I believe it?

And yet, is not each perspective a legitimate choice?

The skeptic tends to believe only what they see, whereas the believer tends to believe only what they wish to see. A believer might say, however, that belief is more than just what they wish to see, but rather, they believe that they might see. In other words, belief tends to illuminate the possibility of what might be there, whereas skepticism tends to deny what''s not already there.

That's quite the difference. Mostly, I think I'm on the believer's side... except when I'm not. For example, I'm skeptical about much of what the world accepts as true, particularly fears regarding viruses, diseases and pharmaceutical 'cures'. But I'm all in for manifesting healing and dreams. For more on this topic go to Manifesting Abundance https://digitalbloggers.com/finance/manifesting-abundance  

Either statement, I'll believe it when I see it, or I'll see it when I believe it, are beliefs held by both skeptics and believers. Being either skeptical or a believer is neither good nor bad onto itself, and yet what is believed can serve the ego's lies which inevitably bring pain and suffering, or it can affirm whatever thoughts that will lead to integrity, love and wisdom.

Within the polarity of light and darkness, love and fear, we align ourselves with whatever we believe to be true. In so doing, we express who we are and where we dwell on the spectrum. A negative person becomes negative because of the negative beliefs they have assimilated. A person who exists in the higher frequency of light is positive because of the truth they willingly adhere too.

So the choice is ours, are we going to go through life as victims, feeling disempowered by fear, or are we going to rise above into the sphere of love and light?  

So where does God, the Source, fit into all this? Before we answer that, we should first ask what we believe about God.

If God is perceived to be a fearful tyrant extracting obedience, who would just as soon damn us as save us, as some religions infer, we will live in the shadow of fear. For much of human history, this has been the case. The much-quoted scripture verse, "The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom" (Proverbs 9:10) has deceived many. The verse could have just as easily been translated as "the awe" of God. Such an understanding makes all the difference in the world.

However, if we perceive God as being the essence of Unconditional love, we see a benevolent universe existing in the Light of Love. This provides us with a basis for happy beliefs. Always ask if your worry comes from love or fear. The answer is obvious. So why not choose happiness?      

Of course, if one chooses not to believe in God as the Source of all that is, then that's a choice with its own logical consequences, for better or worse with whatever you wish to make of it. For some believers it might be meaningful, for others, it might feel constricting and meaningless.

What does the mind say; what does the heart say? Which are we to believe? It seems to me that those who primarily listen to the mind are the skeptics, whereas 'believers' are more predisposed to listening to the heart. But why can't we be both? All we need to do is unite our heart with our mind to balance our skepticisms and beliefs?

Why not be full-spectrum with some healthy skepticism, while allowing the prompting of our heart's intuition? This is what I've written about in, Union of Heart and Mind. So, rather than go on about that here, please refer to my post at this link. https://digitalbloggers.com/book-reviews/union-of-heart-and-mind  

To read more on the topic os skepticism, go to my more in-depth article at: Are you a Skeptic?
https://digitalbloggers.com/arts-and-entertainment/are-you-a-skeptic  

To read more on belief, go to What Do You Believe?
https://digitalbloggers.com/arts-and-entertainment/why-you-believe  

In sum, it makes a big difference what you believe and, just as importantly, if you believe. Perhaps this is why Chekov states Man is what he believes. Might we therefore not also say: Belief is what makes the man.

O holy night! The stars are brightly shining,
It is the night of our dear Saviour's birth.
Long lay the world in sin and error pining,
Till He appear'd and the soul felt its worth.
A thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices,
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.

   Fall on your knees! O hear the angel voices!
   O night divine, O night when Christ was born;
   O night divine, O night, O night Divine.

Led by the light of Faith serenely beaming,
With glowing hearts by His cradle we stand.
So led by light of a star sweetly gleaming,
Here come the wise men from the Orient land.
The King of Kings lay thus in lowly manger;
In all our trials born to be our friend.

   He knows our need, to our weaknesses no stranger,
   Behold your King! Before Him lowly bend!
   Behold your King, Before Him lowly bend!

Truly He taught us to love one another;
His law is love and His gospel is peace.
Chains shall He break for the slave is our brother;
And in His name all oppression shall cease.
Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we,
Let all within us praise His holy name.

   Christ is the Lord! O praise His Name forever,
   His power and glory evermore proclaim.
   His power and glory evermore proclaim.

 

"O Holy Night" (also known as "Cantique de Noël") is a well-known Christmas carol composed by Adolphe Adam in 1847 to the French poem "Minuit, chrétiens" (Midnight, Christians) by poet Placide Cappeau (1808–1877). The carol reflects on the birth of Jesus as humanity's redemption.

In Roquemaure* at the end of 1843, the church organ had recently been renovated. To celebrate the event, the parish priest persuaded poet Placide Cappeau, a native of the town, to write a Christmas poem. Soon afterwards that same year, Adolphe Adam composed the music. The song was premiered in Roquemaure in 1847 by the opera singer Emily Laurey.

Unitarian minister John Sullivan Dwight, editor of Dwight's Journal of Music, wrote the English version in 1855. This version became popular in the United States, especially in the North, where the third verse resonated with abolitionists, including Dwight himself.

* Roquemaure is a small town and commune in the Gard department of southern France. The town lies 12 kilometres (7.5 miles) north of Avignon on the right bank of the Rhône. In the 2012 census the commune had a population of 5,421.

CREATIVITY

CREATIVITY
 

Are you creative? I hope so, but do you think you could live your life more creatively? I think most of us could if only we could break out of all our old modalities and routines. So, what causes us to hold back by falling into the same old conventions, social expectations and protocols?

But first, let’s ask; what is creativity? The following are a few definitions from various dictionaries.

cre·a·tiv·i·ty/noun
ˌkrēāˈtivədē/

·  The use of the imagination or original ideas, especially in the production of artistic work.

·  The ability to produce or use original and unusual ideas

·  Creativity is a phenomenon whereby something somehow new and somehow valuable is formed. The created item may be intangible or a physical object

·  The ability to transcend traditional ideas, rules, patterns, relationships, or the like, and to create meaningful new ideas, forms, methods, interpretations, etc.; originality, progressiveness, or imagination.


Okay, that’s fine… no big surprises here.

In this post, I’d like to examine the nature of creativity and what we mean by creativity. It seems we all think we know what the word means on the surface, but I’d like to go a bit deeper and explore in practical terms how we can be more creative.

To be creative, one has to go outside the box, paint-by-numbers approach, or, as the last definition states: “to transcend.” But what does that mean and how do we do it?

Let’s ask, what do we feel within when we’re creating something new? Exhilarated, free, forward-looking, fulfilled, artistic… what else?

I think most of us might agree that we are never more fully human than while we’re giving expression to something inside wishing to be acknowledged, manifested and loved. It’s empowering to bring a part of ourselves into outward existence. This is why the creative are often among those most alive, happy and imaginative.    

Van Gogh, cleverly stated: I dream my painting, I paint my dream.

For him, it all started with the dream. Or we might say, an imaginative vision… or perhaps even an epiphany. It’s whatever is seen in the mind’s eyes that we wish to manifest.

Unfortunately, few seemed to appreciate Van Gogh's creations, and so he became tormented and suicidal. When culture rejected his brilliant creations, he felt they rejected the essence of his being. In expressing the brilliance he offered the world, his genius remained unappreciated. What could be sadder?

But back to us. It’s often not clear what our creations might look like before they are completed. It’s like entering a portal that has opened without knowing what to expect on the other side. That’s why we wish to give form to what wants to come into existence that we might know what it is. And in admiring what we have created, we, in a sense, love and admire ourselves.

However, once we proceed through the portal there could be any number of ups and downs, detours, refinements or even complete changes of course. What’s important is that we continue to wherever this light of inspiration leads or we’ll never know what we could have brought to life.

To help illustrate this, I’d like to share my most significant creative endeavour. It all started out as little more than just an inkling to journal some of my ideas, however, I had no idea where it might take me. Prior to this, I often expressed my creativity by making things with my hands, often related to woodwork such as building furniture, landscaping, etc. 

It’s a long story on how this all came about, but, if interested, you can read about it on another post. https://digitalbloggers.com/arts-and-entertainment/how-it-came  

Once I began, ideas started to flow as I wrote several hundred pages of meandering thoughts that often were unrelated. As an aside, I had read a lot of quality literature for much of my life after receiving degrees in English and Philosophy. Still, I had never given much expression to what I had taken in for so many years, other than in certain discussion groups.

However, much of my writing seemed rather heavy and cumbersome, basically written to and for me. I thought, should I ever wish to turn this writing into a published book, no one would want to read it because it might be too dense. Still, I thought it had good content, just that it probably wasn't expressed well enough to interest the reading public.

Then, one evening, I asked my ‘muses’ to give me some illustrations and humour to make the concepts more clear and interesting. But the next day, I felt inspired to illustrate something I was trying to express. Before I knew it, that illustration turned into an intriguing allegory. Then this allegory turned into someone’s dream, and without even thinking about it, this someone all of sudden came alive. Next thing I knew and was writing a novel about his life. It felt a bit shocking at first since I had never thought about writing a novel before, and yet here I was doing it.

It was exciting to be creating a whole new world for myself and my characters. Over the next weeks and months, hundreds of pages began to flow out of my imagination, without knowing what would happen next. The plot unfolded in a way I could never have contrived. It was as if ‘it’ was writing itself, which is a rather common experience for novelists. For me, it was giving an expression to my creativity at its finest.

After about a year, I had written over 600 pages of intriguing fantasy, philosophy, romance, spirituality and adventure. Even though I was still working as a commercial real estate agent, I would sometimes find myself writing for 15 hours, not able to go to bed because I couldn’t wait to find what might happen next.

It literally took over my life, and so I had to quit working in real estate so I could pursue my passion. No longer was I earning a living, but it didn’t matter, I was doing what I loved.

After a couple more years of creative writing, the real work of refining, revision, editing and proofing began. But even with this, I found many opportunities to embellish the novels with creative expression, humour and side adventures.

Now, almost seven years later, I’m almost ready to publish the first four novels of the Elysium’s Passage series, and hopefully the next two sometime by mid-2021. Despite a few pauses of several months along the way, it’s been an exhilarating ride. I can hardly wait to begin the last book since much of it has already been written in my mind as the story impatiently calls out to give form to what it has to say.

What I hoped to illustrate in communicating my creative writing experiences is how inspiration comes after we begin. That’s what creates. It occurs in the process of creation, not before and not after. Had I not begun to journal random thoughts, the story would never have emerged, and I would never have been able to enter into this alternate universe that still fascinates me.

The other point I would make is that once your creativity gets traction, it doesn’t want to stop. What we put out there, we receive in more inspiration that we might continue with more and more; never-ending creations. It keeps creating more of its own good vibe that sustains us to perfect our work, as we create evermore.

But first, before we start, we need to find in a happy place for our soul so it can create. Once we put our troubles aside, the creative process is able to do the rest. If we begin with an attitude of gratitude and appreciation, we will have a foundation to build upon.

That’s because creation is an expression of love. In fact, when you think about it, we are conceived and created as an expression of love. So, whatever you envision in your mind’s imagination, and believe in, you can create it as an expression of love; be it a garden, a business, a poem, a song, a cake, an equation, or a book.

If you have the inspiration, your creation will unfold in your mind as it aligns with your mind’s frequency to materialize in whatever form you wish to mould. Some call this the Law of Attraction.

We are never more fully human than when we create since we’re all co-creators, created in the image of the Creator. And so, it’s in our essence-nature… what it means to be gods. The more we create, the more we bring heaven down to earth. As the English poet William Blake once wrote in a poem: Eternity is in love with the creations of time.

                                        ________________________________________________

 

For further consideration to what creativity might mean, I have selected the following dialogue excerpts from certain novels in my, yet unpublished, Elysium’s Passage novel series.

‘Creativity is a fractal of infinite possibilities of expansion. It cannot be understood in the sequence of scientific or religious terms, since all creation unfolds what remains enfolded, not in time, but in eternity.’

‘Creation is not an event, so much as an enfolding and unfolding within the loving embrace of Alpha and Omega. Outwardly, creation seems to occur in the explicit domain of manifestation, but in the implicate universe, it remains latent in the void of infinite possibilities. All and nothingness, at once, existing as one, proceeding outwardly and then back again, endlessly and seamlessly.’

‘And is this not the way life should be,’ Mo asked, ‘with much joy and happiness? Every fantasy you’ve ever had on earth is still waiting for fulfilment in Elysium. Every act of creativity is waiting to be expressed, just as every gift given is waiting to be received.’

___________________________________

Of course, there is much more to this topic of creativity, so I have included the following quotes by luminaries of our contemporary culture. There is much worth considering in these quotes, which could easily turn into a book if examined in more detail    

Eric Fromm
“Creativity requires the courage to let go of certainties.”

Maya Angelou
“You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.”

Criss Jami
“Create with the heart; build with the mind”

Brené Brown
“The only unique contribution that we will ever make in this world will be born of our creativity.”

Pablo Picasso
“Others have seen what is and asked why. I have seen what could be and asked why not.”

Derek Landy
“Doors are for people with no imagination.”

John Steinbeck 
“Our species is the only creative species, and it has only one creative instrument, the individual mind and spirit of man. Nothing was ever created by two men. There are no good collaborations, whether in music, in art, in poetry, in mathematics, in philosophy. Once the miracle of creation has taken place, the group can build and extend it, but the group never invents anything. The preciousness lies in the lonely mind of a man.”

Arthur Koestler 
“Creative activity is a type of learning process where the teacher and pupil are located in the same individual.”

Scarlett Thomas 
“Routine kills creative thought.”

Charles Mingus
“Making the simple complicated is commonplace. Making the complicated simple, awesomely simple, that’s creativity.”

John Maynard Keynes
“The difficulty lies not so much in developing new ideas as in escaping from old ones.”

Albert Einstein
“Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere. Creativity is contagious. Pass it on."

Charlie Peacock
“It's not just about creativity. It's about the person you're becoming while you're creating.”

Osho
“Creativity is the greatest rebellion in existence.”

Dr Seuss
“Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try!

Scott Adams
“Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.”

Vincent Van Gogh
“I dream my painting and I paint my dream.”
 
Pablo Picasso
“Inspiration exists, but it has to find you working.”

Anaïs Nin
“We don’t see things as they are, we see them as we are.”

ENLIGHTENED

You see what you’re looking for, so why not look to the light to see the light? 
NG Meyers

undefined

 

So, what was that?

The bright light picture I've featured was taken in the night sky without any light around that I recall. So this light didn't exist in my sight. I just felt motived to do it at the moment. What I like about it, is that it seems to throb the more I focus on it, (especially after a glass of Scotch or two). Also, I keep seeing interesting images in the centre that almost seem mystical to me. If this light evokes something in your imagination too, please tell me what you see. 

When I first started to blog a few years ago I posted some rather unusual pictures that I had captured on my digital camera. Since I thought them to be interesting, I've included them again in this post. I also have another fun post on this topic that has received a lot of interest in the past. Go to We Need To Talk https://digitalbloggers.com/arts-and-entertainment/we-need-to-talk 

I've taken many pictures of orbs that I have stashed away in my external hard drive but thought I'd pick a few for this post about light. I am not suggesting they are anything more than natural phenomena due to dust in the air or a camera lens flash. But then, what if?

These images intrigued me after they suddenly began to show up on my digital camera, shortly after I purchased it about 20 years ago. At no point did I see any of these 'orbs' without a camera. Funny, but after I stopped expecting to see them, they stopped showing up. I've seen nothing of them for several years now. 

Strangely, they only showed up when I intended to capture them on camera, which, on the surface, would seem to take us beyond the realm of natural explanation. I'm just saying this because I have a highly imaginative metaphysical mind, but have no proof of them being anything but natural. 

Interestingly, and perhaps more down the earth, I recently read something that inspired me about the light within. You pass from form, which reflects Light, to Light, which shines into form. (Taken from The Holy Spirit's Interpretation of the New Testament, page 305.) There's a lot of meaning contained in these words that speak to me of enlightenment. Not to say any of this has anything to do with orbs, but still, it's an intriguing thought.

Now more every day, fun, run-of-the-mill orbs. I've included a few photos I took at my place. This strobe light orb, as I call it, was taken probably about 10 years ago. Interestingly, I was sitting on the couch just before this and have no idea why I felt compelled to get up and take a picture of where I was. Who know's what I was thinking to have drawn this sphere of light to me.

Here's another in the same vicinity but taken at a different time. The photo on the right is the same, enlarged and enhanced. This is where I spend much of my time while reading or writing at home. Guess they like to keep me company since I live alone.

 undefined

 

 

I don't recall where I caught either of these but they were obviously taken in the dark. 

undefinedundefined

I caught this one beside my senior friend, Lawrence on a summer night at my cabin. The orbs must like the way he thinks since I got a couple others positioned directly over his head.

Since this post is on the topic of light, I've included below a number of enLIGHTened quotes by some very wise souls who bear/bore the light. I hope you find these inspirational in this dark season of the year. 

 

As we work to create light for others, we naturally light our own way. Mary Anne Radmacher

What is to give light must endure the burning. Eleanor Roosevelt

Light itself is a great corrective. A thousand wrongs and abuses that are grown in darkness disappear, like owls and bats, before the light of day.  James A. Garfield

Light is to darkness what love is to fear; in the presence of one the other disappears Marianne Williamson

In order for the light to shine so brightly, the darkness must be present. Sir Francis Bacon

He whose face gives no light, shall never become a star. William Blake

Give light, and the darkness will disappear of itself. Desiderius Erasmus

A man should learn to detect and watch that gleam of light which flashes across his mind from within. Ralph Waldo Emerson

Travel light, live light, spread the light, be the light. Yogi Bhajan

Light must come from inside. You cannot ask the darkness to leave; you must turn on the light.
Sogyal Rinpoche

In the right light, at the right time, everything is extraordinary. Aaron Rose

His high endeavours are an inward light That makes the path before him always bright.
William Wordsworth

When you possess light within, you see it externally. Anas Nin

There are two ways of spreading light; to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it. Edith Wharton

We are told to let our light shine, and if it does, we won't need to tell anybody it does. Lighthouses don't fire cannons to call attention to their shining- they just shine. Dwight L. Moody

At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us. Albert Schweitzer

If there is light in the soul, There will be beauty in the person. If there is beauty in the person, There will be harmony in the house. If there is harmony in the house, There will be order in the nation. If there is order in the nation, There will be peace in the world. Chinese Proverb

It is better to light one small candle than to curse the darkness. Eleanor Roosevelt

t's not necessary to blow out your neighbour's light to let your own shine. M.R. Dehaan

There are two kinds of light - the glow that illumines, and the glare that obscures. James Grover Thurber

Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you. John Ruskin

Give light and people will find the way. Ella Baker

The light shines in the darkness and the darkness comprehended it not. Gospel of John 1:5 

To light a candle is to cast a shadow. Ursula K. Le Guin

A life of faith without love is like sunlight without warmth—the type of light that occurs in winter, when nothing grows, and everything droops and dies. Faith rising out of love, on the contrary, is like light from the sun in spring, when everything grows and flourishes. Emanuel Swedenborg

SUMMARY OF ELYSIUM'S PASSAGE


.undefined

 


The ELYSIUM'S PASSAGE novel series is a seven book narration about a young British philosopher named James Phillips who finds himself living in an altered state of reality while still remaining on earth.  

After experiencing a near-fatal fall while climbing to the summit of a remote mountain in the Andes, James awakens in a new dimension. He soon encounters two mysterious beings who provide him with a very different perspective on the nature of his existence. Over the next year, before his body recovers from the coma, he is challenged to re-examine his understanding about life’s meaning and purpose far beyond anything he previously believed or could believe.

An engaging and sometime surreal adventure with intimations of impending romance, the narrative explores the most important questions about life, death, reality and our ultimate destiny. 

The Plains of Elysium (Champs-Élysées) was described by Homer, Hesiod, Virgil and many other poets as the paradisiac afterlife realm reserved for heroes. As the title suggests, this is about a journey through a passage that leads towards Elysium’s exciting realm of existence.

The following comments are excerpts from among the first readers including a number of Amazon five star reviews. To read the full reviews, go to READER REVIEWS on www.elysiumspassage.com or directly at https://digitalbloggers.com/arts-and-entertainment/reader-reviews

"A delightful mix of fantasy, reality, conjecture and humour; Mr Meyers draws the reader into the story with a gentle narrative that captures the imagination, leaving one anxious to get to the next page drawing you into his exceptional world.”

"Quietly, gently, and without imposition, the Author unfolds the pages, creating an intricate, interlocking bridge spanning the chasm between mind and heart. Renewing, refreshing, restoring. In my bereavement, it was vigil and light…"

“Excellently written with an exceedingly deep understanding of this world and the next. The characters are very well written and engaging. I can't wait to complete this book!"

“Takes the reader on both a philosophical and spiritual journey, a journey that at times is both disquieting and tranquil. James, a British Philosopher can be irreverent and caustic, traits that should have left me cringing, but instead made me laugh out loud. Elysium’s Passage is a fun, enlightening and remarkable book.”

“This is a masterful fantasy, becoming a real possibility, as the reader is drawn into the story. The Summit leaves you anxious for the next book in the series, yet also leaves you totally satisfied with the world you have just visited. Genius! An exciting, yet calming, experience that is not to be missed."

"There was hardly a page on which I did not find at least one sentence worthy of hi-lighting for future reference. In addition, I thoroughly enjoyed the main character, James, whose personality and passionate verbal exchanges with the other characters, kept me coming back for more. I am reading the book for a second time while I wait for the next one in this series to be made available."

 “N.G. Meyers has clearly put a great deal of research and thought into what the afterlife may look like and I like his perspective. It’s an altogether welcoming and exciting vision. The book gives one a great deal to think about and a reassuring confidence that the end of our lives is truly the beginning of life in the next. I highly recommend it."

"I am really enjoying your book, it’s fantastic! It is so incredible and diversified that I can’t really explain it to other people, so what I say is just read this book. Thank you so much for the blessings that you’ve given the world!"

“The humour interjected into a serious discussion makes me laugh out loud. Totally unexpected....l may be in the presence of at least a master, if not a genius. A fair ride into reality... seeking that which is unseen, yet absolutely real.”

“An engaging story of adventure embracing man's deepest desire to search for meaning and purpose, N.G. Meyers takes the reader on an adventurous thought-provoking journey. This book has substance. It is a perfect blend of adventure and fantasy combined with spiritual philosophy. It ignited my imagination. The author magically weaves a good story laced with wit and humour together with deep philosophical wisdom. This book has it all!”

“An evolution in thought is triggered by many fresh philosophical themes which could inspire readers to re-think their reality and former ideologies that have dictated their lives… the author fires readers’ imaginations to view what could be possible when spirit vacates the body.”

“This is the book spiritual seekers have been waiting for. For me, it granted a great read as well as increased inspiration to live every day with a heightened sense of purpose. I highly recommend it.

“The Summit is capable of hooking readers and luring them to search for Book 2 to discover more about Dr. Philip’s surreal trek into the mysterious unknown universe. This thick book is well worth the read and to share…”

“Mind-blowing statements and speculation (‘…everyone is a non-physical thought form conceived in the Mind of God, preserved for all eternity because God’s thoughts never die…’). Many will find Meyers’ journey up the Mountain intriguing—and possibly even life-changing.” (BLUEINK REVIEW)

“In its effort to grapple with fundamental questions about the meaning of life, it raises questions that have echoed throughout the ages, including about where we come from, where we are going, who we are.”  (CLARION REVIEW)
