In Why Our Creator Keeps Itself Hidden From Us, it seemed that our creator was stuck between a rock and a hard place. On one hand, it can’t confront us with its magnificence, by showing itself or talking to us, without reducing us to puppets and taking away our free will to choose to love it. On the other hand, it can’t enable us to love it without communicating with us. Might our all-powerful and all-knowing creator have come up with a solution?
What do you think of this possibility? Could anything stop your creator from putting what it wants to share with you directly into your mind? Would that not avoid the need to show itself or speak to you? However, the downside is that it would be up to you to discover what hasn't been shown or told to you. How?
Might the first step be for you to expect to find something it wants to tell you? Why should you expect to discover unspoken messages in your mind? Might it be that, like your best teachers, your creator knows that you learn more by doing and thinking than you do by being shown or told. If so, you can expect to find something from your creator in your mind for two reasons. It must put it there to enable you to communicate with it. It is a better way to communicate with you than by showing itself or speaking to you.
Once you expect to discover an idea from your creator, you can confidently search your mind to find it. Try setting aside a few minutes each day to reflect on all the ideas that popped into your mind that day.
Might most of these ideas have come from something you experienced that day – something you might have heard; a conversation you had that day; something you saw around you or watched on TV; something you saw on social media or found while surfing the internet. But what about the ideas that you can’t associate with anything you experienced that day? Where did they come from? If they didn’t result from something you experienced, must they not have come from something beyond your experience?
Of course, many of those beyond-experience ideas are the last thing you would expect to have come from your creator. How can you know which ideas did? Let’s examine some practical criteria.
Does that idea relate to what you already know about your creator – that it loves you and offers you eternal life – as we established in the Meaning of Life Video Series? Does that idea further explain a specific of what you know? Does that idea partially clear up any lingering doubt you may have? Does it expand on what you know of your creator? Does it logically follow from what you know of your creator? If not, you can simply put it aside and focus on ideas that pass these criteria. What now?
Take one idea at a time and formulate a response to it. Whether you put that response into words or simply leave it in your mind, you have started a conversation with your creator! Before responding to the next idea, reflect on the last exchange. Can you discover a reply, to your response, from your creator?
The more you reflect on these exchanges and the more ideas to which you respond, the more you move from conversations with your creator to an intimacy with it. You gradually move towards a deep and heartfelt love of your creator which exceeds the love you feel for the dearest person in your life. Could this be your creator’s purpose for creating you? Could any experience be more fulfilling?
