Timeless Creative Juggernaut

Being part of the whole creative process is itself a blessing. We are just one among the species allowed to be part of the ride and how we play our role determines our legacy. We presume we are more aware of the process and that behooves us to play our part to the hilt - time indeed for a change from the present vicious cycle of negativity.

Limited Awareness, Perception

Is Creation limitless, timeless, yet limited by our awareness, imagination, creativity, work ethic? The universe is forever expanding not counting multiverse beyond our ken though our perception is limited. We do not even know what our potential is. We are easily carried away by our emotions to the extent we prove emotional fools getting at others’ throats depending on our moods. We are ever ready to pick up a quarrel, put down others without understanding where they come from. We are misled in our pursuits, but are we aware of who they really are or just react to ever changing situations? Is there a reality or just utter chaos floating in our minds? Are we more constructive or give in to destructive forces for them to set their agenda and keep us on tenterhooks? Are we forever going to put out self-created fires? The Creator has given us unlimited freedom and democracy, totally hands-off is His way. He does keep us on our toes with subtle changes mostly to rearrange, get things in order after the daily chaos we create. We are for now His chosen species. He can well snuff out our lives with one stroke but gives us many chances to prove our worth.

Vicious Cycle of Destruction

How aware other species are of the creative process is purely our conjecture and we take it we are at the top of the pecking order. We are master of all we survey is our take. But do we realize the roles others play to keep us at the top? Nature props us up in subtle ways and so, is it not the one ever knowing, ever forgiving life force that keeps us alive? Then we have to content with those we see and the unseen that plays subtle roles. We are taken on a high speed ride without us even realizing it putting to shame the fastest contraptions that we have come up with to satisfy our ego. What do we really contribute to the whole process and to raise the bar? What are we preoccupied with as if our whole lives depend on them? Are we better off with beliefs that tend to belittle others? Can we ever come out of the vicious cycle of destructive thinking and actions, doubting others’ intentions even when ours are less than honorable to the extent to be like the pot calling the kettle black?

Narcissist Lifestyle

How to unravel the creative juggernaut so that we know the purpose of why we are here, our role in it and then have an idea to contribute positively to the whole as co-creators? Every species has a role that they are wired to play to keep our eco-system well oiled. We have been adding artificiality to our existence thereby drifting away from nature, but does such a lifestyle add meaning to our days? Our greed knows no bounds – the more we have the more we want overrides all rhyme and reason. Data are thrown at us to get us into this self-defeating, narcissist, game with profit motive as the raison d'être for our existence.

Creation sans Us

Is it not time for us to ponder deeply what our role is to take the next step as a necessary process to step up our efforts? Being in the present groove seems to make us intolerant of each other as we sink into a cesspool of self-created misery. Anyone having a different approach brings forth a primordial instinct of literally – off with his head! That seems to the ultimate show of strength of few showing their loyalty to their God! And the world watches with bated breath, never mind only 1% is behind this madness. When they are allowed free play it proves that destruction trumps the creative process. The natural evolutionary process should take over then when we are not worthy to be part of the whole; creation is better off without us!

Coexistence & Accommodation

That we have creative imagination is clear but we also are unable to get out of primordial instincts that should give way to positive thinking based on the oneness of creation but recognizing the uniqueness in each among us. To stay focused and imbibe the beauty in creation, we need to rise to a higher realm of awareness. We should partake and add our own two cents to the process even when we enjoy this humongous ride with others. We should make sense of the method that seems beyond our comprehension most times. Some believe in destruction of nature come what may, while others try to protect the order inherent in the whole process. But we can all agree to disagree than trying to go at each other’s throats all the time. Time can prove that nobody is correct when nature reinvents itself to accommodate our idiosyncrasies; in the end, we also create the world we live in and even get hoisted by our own petard! We should be aware what hurts us will prove likewise for others too despite the different pain threshold but we should not go against nature and that comes from an inner knowing planted deep inside us; in a way like cloud computing ready for tapping the wisdom from within! Creation is timeless, limitless, fathomless that adapts for continuation and we are almost nothing in the whole process but still a part of it just like other species. We should raise the bar of awareness brick by brick with each passing generation. Then we can better appreciate what our role is which looks hazy at best in the present time.

Siva, I've been thinking about this very subject all week. It's amazing to me that I turn on my Nook and here on my favorite site written by one of my favorite people is just what I've been thinking about. That is priceless indeed. Considering how far we live from each other and thinking along the same lines seems almost impossible but never the less true. My thoughts are that we all have a tendency to make all our thoughts about us. I think if we didn't cener so much on me, me, me and thought more about others meaning everyone I do believe negativity would go by the wayside.

Thanks Nancy, everyone pondering about a better future will think on these lines. The only way forward is give and take - when in doubt let time take its course and find the right answer. We are increasingly shutting our minds and distancing ourselves from society. Let us not prove ungrateful, the only species to destroy more than create. Why should we threaten others with nuclear weapons to survive - the greatest effort should be to fight the war against hatred to attain peace. We definitely need not go for a nuclear holocaust to open our eyes. We can all coexist for the simple reason 99% want to! siva

I think this article like as an advice for all of us and absolutely all the problems which you describes in this article are clear such things happening around us and even in every seconds. Then exceptional, this sentence is very touching:
"We are for now His chosen species. He can well snuff out our lives with one stroke but gives us many chances to prove our worth."
Awesome article and Thank you for this valuable advices. Have great days sir.

Being grateful for the endless blessings will prove a good starting point and motivation for our thoughts and actions. Our forefathers fought tooth and nail for bare survival, but are we not better off? Then why spoil for a fight on a daily basis still?

Earlier times the sky was the limit, now we know everything is limitless, let us not be a frog in the well pulling each other down. Thanks Viewgreen for your support - siva

On co-existence and accommodation, I'm all for them. But when my existence is threatened by somebody higher up on the "food chain," i.e., wanting to destroy me for what I am, think, or have, that's where my accommodating them stops. This is not negativity, it's survival.

Agreed LeRain, survival is different from negativity. I always ponder over the announcement while flying advising moms to take care of themselves first before attending to their children.

One has to fight with the right tools; but we tend to forget the most basic yet the most powerful - understanding and compassion. To start with, no God is going to step in to settle our petty squabbles for the simple reason there can be be only one Creator and we are blessed to know what is right from wrong.

We cannot reason with a wild animal but should try our best with another human being, country. I have met people from most countries and there are the good and the bad everywhere and most want to be left alone, busy with their own lives. They also understand the problems we all face are the same - survival! siva

Yes Carol, we still take it like that though it should come quite naturally to us when we realize others have as much a right to exist like us. After WW ll, we were aware of the need for peace for a while creating the UN, but now even that is relegated as inconsequential - siva

Thank you Madan. Despite supposedly having a greater awareness than other species, we still play with the proverbial fire. We seek refuge in weapons of mass destruction but it is only a matter of time before they fall into "wrong" hands! siva

I understand what you are saying Sivar, it is what reasonable human beings have always tried to say. The problem is that we reasonable folks are so outnumbered by the un-reasonable. I look at our history and almost back to the first days it has been this way. All the way back to when Cain killed his brother and it has yet to stop. And even that doesn’t seem quite bloody enough for us, so now we reach into the womb and kill them there before they can taste of the air. I am afraid my friend that the killing, and the clubbing, and the stabbing, and the wars will never end until humanity end.

Agreed Utah Jay, sadly the weapons for killing are becoming more potent by the day to the extent it would lead to all out destruction in time to come. Now knives and guns are used and some are bent upon seizing even nuclear weapons to prove their points against humanity!

I have found 99% are peace loving everywhere but the one percent create mayhem and disunity. I believe there should be a tipping point towards general awareness like it has been right through history in terms of slavery, communism. overcoming despotic rule, apartheid etc. We should start with disarmament involving all countries and even beliefs. We should also forget getting even for past misdeeds as I take a view - let the dead bury their dead. Otherwise, endless revenge motives, an eye for eye, will make the whole world blind! Thanks Utah Jay for your input - siva

Of course to my mind the negative also serves its purpose. The cycle of viciousness must also be being gone through hopefully so like the phoenix of old we can all rise upwards again.

I just hope we are not all destroyed before the next cycle begins.

You have an Interesting way of putting things siva, not blaming just painting the pictures that you see.

Maybe, the Creator wants us to experience everything - the lows and highs - and preparing us for a more eventful and challenging journey! Let us hope we rise before it is too late with a great escape, Houdini like! I believe we have it in us to make this place a heaven or hell and it is entirely up to us. Thanks Spirited - siva

There are those especially in the new spirituality movement who are working hard to raise the consciousness of humanity. More and more people are beginning to realize that all life is connected, whether it be a flower, a piece of grass, a bird, an elephant or a human. I firmly believe that the next 20 to 50 years is do or die for the human race. We must learn that we are our brother's keeper and when we hurt another we are hurting ourselves. I like the saying that the only thing we can take out of this world is what we do for others. Just my thoughts on your brilliant post. Blessings.

Thank you Kingwell for this uplifting input. Yes, we are approaching the tipping point - cooperate or perish is the clarion call ringing loud and clear. Listen to the inner voice is the refrain. We know we are part and parcel of the humongous creative juggernaut - each can do but little, but if each does that little all will done; will be hunky dory, underlying our legacy. We have to connect the dots to find wisdom and to leave negativity behind. When ninety nine percent wants such a path, why compromise? Let the voice of sanity and moderation prevail before it is too late. The majority should prevail as the minority writ should be cast away in the dustbins of negativity - siva

Survival of the fittest, unfortunately does not allow people to be more accomodating and to coexist and cooperate. They are selfish and self-centred to the exclusion of the have-nots. Also ego, power, envy and the urge to retaliate are everywhere in this world of today. Kali yuga, I suppose!

Yes you are right on money dear Subra. When the Japanese hostages were killed like even no other species should ever be killed, some recalled the horrors of World War ll when they decapitated many. If such eye for eye revenge motive is set in perpetual motion, everyone will become blind in a matter of time. Then what about the atomic bombing - was it justified or will it also trigger a revenge motive and the justification thereof?

Let our beliefs not be usurped by few with the majority cowering in cowardice. Let us not ever treat murderers in the name of "good" terrorism when "others" are the victims and not own kind. We should instead live in inclusiveness and enjoy the variety in diversity like we do with nature.

Appearances can be deceptive too and we do not know who will hold our hands in the end.
Gandhi said - we have everything to meet our needs. but not the greed! I do pity those who spend all their time in material acquisitions only to see them taken away even before they close their eyes with vultures, mostly those they trusted, circling above them. They think they are different, but hardly in the realm of creation! siva

A spiral of negativity seems to stop many people from achieving (even those who have demonstrated many successes) one important step is having self love and knowing that things can get better, that helped me through the blind moments.

Agreed Peter, We need to look at the positive side to all issues - the darkest hour is just before dawn is my last refuge when the push comes to shove. Many don't realize how vulnerable they are in many ways, so adaptability to life changing situations is the only way to look forward to another day - siva
