Creative imaginations
It is interesting to consider how often we experience something and

then proceed to doubt our own experience. We seek social approval,
third party confirmation of the experienced moment - and when none
is available questionthe validity of our own sensing.

How often, for example, we have experienced the 'spiritual presence'
of a long dead family member only to 'apparently find' that no other
experienced this and therefore we dismiss the experience as imaginings
or fantasy. Yet it seemed so real to us. How euphoric we are when
another confesses to the same, or similar,'sensing'.

Equally, how many times we have felt the presence of 'God', only to
rationalise that since no one else around us had that same experience in
the same way - or even similar - that we must have imagined it.

No matter how many times we are faced with the reality that we are so
uniquely individual, that our life's walk is so amazingly special, we seek to
confirm through others the validity of our own experiences and even conform
our experiences to acceptable social 'norms'.

So strange. So amazingly peculiar that we would trust, believe
in, give credence to, the expressed experience of another in
preference to our own. Yet we continually fill the 'workshop of
our experiencing' with the words and experiences of others as
though they are 'tools of comprehension', not
recognising that that was their unique experience.

At what point are we willing to accept that imagination,
even 'fantasy', are also valid tools of experiencing....for
at that moment we are experiencing that about which we
imagine or fantasise. We have created that very scenario
wthin our consciousness or have sensed that very

'creation' within our 'metaphor of relativity'.

It is no wonder that Christ said that when we think a thing

it as as though we have done it. For, most surely, in the
heart of our 'experiencing' the thinking of it is the doing of it.

In this sense the boundary between reality and imagining
becomes as small as an atom of air. Our relative, conditioned
perspective dictates whether the experience is classified as
real or fantasy by our logical cortexes. Our
conditioned-conscious-thought perspective can deafen us
to the voice of our own individualised spirit speaking to us.

In this sense our manifestations of lovingness cease to be

ours any more, they become the property of our conditioned
circumstance and manifest in conditioned expressions.

Only when we are willing to accept the full responsibility of

our own creating self are we fully empowered to emanate
unconditional love. In that event it matters little whether we
classify the experience of unconditional love as real or imagined.
It matters little because the energy we release in this

unconditional lovingness emanation creates a reality of it
around us.

When you consciously know - and accept this - you

understand the words 'all things are possible to them
that believe'.
