Intervention to Co-creation
The aliveness of everything
Many of us have a hunger to make a difference, contribute and add something of value to this life. This often comes with the idea of upgrading something that is already here or creating something new all together so that our expression can make an impact. In this way we must do something onto life, aka intervene in some way, in order to make a difference.
Sometimes this can feel like trying to move a concrete wall with our bare hands. Particularly if we view that which we are attempting to change as inactive or non-participatory in the creation process. To intervene implies that “I”, separate from “you”, must do something to “you” in order to make a change. In this example “you” could be another person or it could be the material, system or structure that you are working with.
Everything in creation has essence, meaning everything is made up of the same stuff, whether or not its animate or inanimate. Everything is the stuff of thought. There is a hierarchical order in a way, which is dependent on degree of awareness of self, which creates the seeming difference between perceived objects that we see. Like say the difference we perceive between a chair and another human being, the human being having more awareness of self than the chair. The more aware you are of self the more highly organized your system will become (hence why a human being is more complex than a chair), yet the essence of what is remains the same throughout; unchanged and ever present.
In this way whatever you are working with is alive and because of that there is an alchemy that arises between you and that which you are working with to “intervene” upon. I often think that we forget or have not fully realized that everything that we interact with is alive and therefore there is not anything that we independently do even if it seems that we are working on or doing something alone.
Recognition of alchemy leads to co-creation
Self- awareness is the active participatory role
Attempting to manipulate or control something that is seemingly exterior to us is an exhausting job, yet this is what many of our interventions, jobs, passions, missions, creations, etc., have come down to. This is why so many people are stressed out and in resistance to life rather than in flow with it. Even if our intentions are pure and our hearts are devoted to service, if we haven’t recognized the aliveness of everything (also known as the free-will of everything) then we are operating in a “me over here and the world over there paradigm.” We are disconnected from that which we are, as an individuated expression of a one larger beingness of everything.
The recognition of this larger truth of who you are allows you to recognize the alchemy that arises between individuated expressions of this one being. For example when you and I come together for entrainment or an SRI session there is an unique alchemy of me with each one of you. In this way no two are the same. Each interaction being co-created by our unique energetic signatures, or our unique expressions of the one being, coming into the same space-time location. In this way each being’s free will is honored.
The active participatory role that each being, material, structure or system plays is simply the pure expression of what it knows itself to be. This active role is not a “doing” in the traditional sense that we think of, but instead an awareness of self that in and of itself produces activity, which could also be named as alertness, presence or brightness. Again through this recognition of the activity or aliveness of all things you realize that you could never do anything alone even if you wanted too. Everything is a co-creation.
Rather than having to be the one that knows it all, the accomplisher, or carrying the burden of responsibility of being a sole creator who is intervening to make the difference, you can recognize that you are co-creating with everything and everyone. Its not just all up to the individual you. Each of us create together simply through the essence we emit. We tend to attract to us those beings, structures and systems that we have resonance with, whose energetic signatures complement our own in some way, so that the alchemy of the coming together creates something anew which can only be created through that coming together.
