    Default Do we create (or at least co-create) our reality and reality experience?

    Yes, this is an old question but I would love to read where the current membership stands in regards to this question.
    All the above is all and only my opinion - all subject to change and not meant to be true for anyone else regardless of how I phrase it.

    I would say yes.
    We and all those before us have created the mess we find ourselves in today. I would call that our shared reality.

    All of that without magical thinking.

    Yes we do.

    Which is why scientism and those who think the world is just atoms and clockworks, how their limited rules of physics can seem to work.

    They project as a group that it does and all else is a false paradigm ....and a malleable reality has that working for them. It also fixes errors for them, locally, on the fly.

    This was proven in meta tests that were based on the PEAR works in psychic sensitivity involving reality and time.

    The odds against that conclusion being wrong or incorrect, are a good billion to one, or more.

    Results in these areas of research have been vetted by the Us government offices of the US Academy of Sciences. All of it is based in published peer reviewed solid scientific works and testing.

    https://universeisathought.files.wor.../the-field.pdf

    Almost all of my contributions to this forum involve helping people understand the reality of this..er..reality.

    As people project and it forms a path in reality for them, like some sort of reality sculpting snow plow....people can easily lie to themselves about ..anything, anything at all. As long as there is enough unconscious directed force behind it, it can form into something that supports them in some fashion or another.

    So self lies can exist when they have enough unconscious force behind them, for the group to do something with it. Thus forms of government, cultural/social extremes, religions, and so on.

    This is why various forms of esoteric extremist projected beliefs or forms of structured schooling in various forms of esoteric teachings...why they all have a functional core of a sort. Eg, satanism works as well as Christianity in a reality that is as malleable as the force of will that is behind the projection.

    The conclusion is that neither satanism or Christianity is real or fundamental. Just the will and direction of the firehose of reality creation is real. That ..which is in/of the idea of a 'person', as individual or group, which is the actual force of it's function in the matrix of energy and dimension mixing we call 'reality. Ie, your ego awareness (which is of this 'space/matrix') reads these words. It is not the real you. The real you is of other space and is merely emergent in this space/place.. and is juxtaposed across it's fulcrum of flow.

    As many things as you care to investigate, you will find the very fundamentals of a malleable/motional/changable reality behind and in and of it.

    No need for a long form of esoterica to help explain it.

    Start here, zero back to this, and and understanding of it will unfold without all the extreme layered complexity of the esoterica. Or do both, until it becomes clear.

    Thanks for the question, here is a good answer I read recently in:
    http://www.divine-cosmos.net/three-l...-construct.htm
    Quote
    Whether you know it or not you exist within something akin to a super advanced virtual reality. One where your every thought, belief, and emotion is selecting what appears on the screen you call your reality. Understanding how your personal reality, and the collective reality you are part of, is generated has profound implications. And one of the most important of these is the complete liberation from your fears.

    Before diving into how your reality is generated, and it's three layers let's do a quick review of the true nature of yourself and your reality — what you are and what you are a part of.

    The Ultimate Nature of Existence

    The ultimate nature of existence is that there is a singular consciousness which presides over a singular, yet multidimensional, field of energy that it can mold into any patterns it wishes by the exercise of its thoughts, intentions, and desires. And these patterns are everything seen and unseen. This consciousness has been referred to as universal consciousness, or cosmic consciousness, or source consciousness. And Source consciousness not only creates patterns of energy but it can also perceive and experience them.

    Another way to think about these energy patterns is as information. Source consciousness can create, manipulate, navigate, and perceive information in the field. This allows it to create information that represents complete experiential environments or "reality constructs" and then dive in and experience them. There is only consciousness, information, and the perception of information and this allows for the creation and experience of "realities."

    The world that you think exists outside of you is essentially an illusion — it is a purely perceptual experience of consciousness. The experiences are REAL, but the props are IMAGINARY. All the information that represents your reality was imagined into existence and is essentially just imagery that your consciousness is perceiving — very much like a virtual reality. There isn't anything out there; it's just an incredibly convincing perceptual illusion.

    The way source consciousness experiences a reality construct is by creating a sub-thread of its consciousness, which has its own focal point of awareness and perception, and put's that focal point within one of these "reality constructs" and experiences it. Source consciousness is multi-threaded, and you are one of those threads — pure consciousness, non-physical and formless. And you have put your focal point of awareness and perception into this space-time reality to have this experience.

    How Your Personal and Collective Reality is Generated

    The way information is presented to your thread of consciousness is much like how a film projector displays the frames of a film strip. Every billionth of a second or so, a frame of information representing your reality is presented to and perceived by your consciousness (more about this in The Illusion of Time and Space). Unlike a film strip which has frames with content that was determined when the movie was produced, the movie that you call your reality contains some information that is pre-created and some that is created on the fly and then dynamically composed into final frames on the fly.

    Conceptually, frames of reality are generated as three layers of information; foundation, background, and foreground and these then get combined into one cohesive picture. The information in each of these layers is produced in different ways and understanding how this works has great relevance to understanding and mastering the creation of your personal reality. Using the metaphor of a stage play these three layers might be considered; the stage, the setting, and the story. And make no mistake, your reality is your story, and you are the lead character as well as the director.

    Surprisingly, even though it appears that you are a part of a singular collective reality with many players or actors, something a bit different from what you might have imagined is going on behind the scenes.

    What's really going on is that each thread of consciousness (e.g; soul) is experiencing its own separate reality in which they are both the lead actor and director of their own stories. All the other actors in your story are just other souls playing stand-in roles in support of your story. You have agreements with many other souls to play parts in your reality — but it's your story, and they are all walk in cameo appearances.

    Those souls playing roles in your story may or may not be engaged in their own version of the earthly reality. And you may or may not be reciprocating and playing roles in their realities. But there are tons of souls playing parts in each other's realities. Each soul is having its own independent experience in its own separate version of reality. How the reality of a soul, who might be playing a part in your reality, plays out will likely be different than your own.

    The way a collective reality experience is generated is that the beings that share roles across the various individual realities agree to share information that represents some elements of the reality — specificallly, information representing the foundation/stage layer and the background/collective layer.

    The process which generates each successive reality frame perceived by your thread of consciousness seamlessly combines this shared information with the information from the foreground layer (information created, and selected, and produced by you) into a seamless whole. The details of how this works are not entirely certain, but this is how it works in general.

    Quote Your reality is programmable, and you are the programmer.
    Let's explore how the information that represents each of the three layers of your reality construct is produced and what degree of creative control you have over each.

    The Foundation Layer – The Stage

    The first layer of information that is included in the frames of reality that your consciousness is perceiving and experiencing might be appropriately called the foundation layer. This is the layer of information that represents the planet, and the elementals it's composed of, and the biosphere. It includes everything that supports human life and the human experience. This layer acts as the stage on which the human drama is played out on — both collectively and personally.

    All the information (e.g; energy patterns) that makeup everything in this layer were created and are maintained by the intentions, thoughts, and imagination of non-physical beings (e.g; consciousnesses). These beings have dedicated themselves to creating and maintaining the major elements that make up our reality, and multitudes of other realities — a role often referred to as "construct holders." All the information that represents the foundation layer of our reality construct was imagined into existence by these beings! To learn more about construct holders, check out the section on 7th density beings in my article Ascending the Densities of Consciousness. I may explore this topic further in future articles so follow the blog to stay tuned.

    The most important implication of this is that our threads of consciousness are not creating this information and so we cannot ourselves change the nature of the stage through our own conscious thoughts and intentions. You are not directly creating the stage environment, our world, with your thoughts. You don't have any direct power to alter the information that represents it; you can only choose to explore and experience different parts of it by your choices and intent. This layer is part of the information that we all agreed we'd share across all of our individual realities to create the experience of a collective reality.

    The Background Layer – Collective Reality

    The second layer of information that is included in the frames of reality that your consciousness is perceiving and experiencing I call the "background" layer. This layer is the collective story/drama that's playing out on the foundation layer (the stage). These are the global and collective events and circumstances. It's all the stuff that you hear about happening in the world but doesn't necessarily directly touch you. It's the state of the world, the state of human society; it's what you see recorded in the history books, and discussed in newspapers and magazines. It's everything that's supposedly happening in the world, and everything that supposedly has happened in the world — most of which you never directly experienced — it appears to have happened to someone somewhere, but it didn't happen to you.

    This layer of your reality construct is co-created by all the threads of consciousness (e.g; souls) participating in the collective reality construct. And we all agreed that it would be shared across all of our individual reality constructs — it is the backdrop to your personal reality — this is how collective reality experiences are constructed. The information in this layer is co-created by the collective — it is the average of all the thoughts, intentions, emotions, choices, actions, etc of all the souls involved in the collective reality construct. If we assumed that every soul's level or frequency of consciousness was the same, then each player in the collective reality construct would be equally contributing to the co-creation of the information in this layer.

    Your power to shape the collective reality, to steer the course of collective events, with your own thoughts and intentions is limited. For example, if there were five billion people on the planet then your influence would be 1/five-billionth. But of course, not everyone is at the same level or frequency of consciousness. And at each higher level of consciousness, you have an exponentially higher degree of influence in the creation of the collective reality — the higher your state of consciousness, then the greater proportion that your thoughts and intentions influence the creation of the collective reality.

    And here's the great thing, even thou you can't change the collective reality you do control which parts of the collective reality that touch you — the parts that you directly experience are completely up to you! Using the stage play metaphor, the collective reality is the backdrop to your personal story/drama. Which parts of this backdrop directly touch you depends on your thoughts, beliefs, intentions, desires, choices and more. Nothing from the collective reality can touch you unless you invite them into your direct experience with your thoughts! More on this very important point in a bit.

    The Foreground Layer – Personal Reality

    The 3rd and final layer of information that is included in the frames of reality that your consciousness is perceiving and experiencing I call the "foreground" layer. The foreground is everything that you directly experience. This is your personal reality, and you are 100% responsible for creating it. Everything you directly experience is either newly created by you or invited into your reality from the collective reality by your thoughts, beliefs, desires, etc! So even though you can't single-handedly change the collective reality (because it is co-created collectively), it doesn't really matter because you control which parts of it that you draw into your personal reality and directly experience.

    You are essentially immune to any danger or peril or whatever that is out there in the collective reality if you don't buy into that it can affect you. And of course, the fastest way to draw stuff from the collective reality into your personal reality is to fear and worry about how the state of the world might affect you! Because as a creator, what you focus on you attract especially when it's combined with a strong emotion like fear. And don't kid yourself, if you are worrying about stuff that's fear.

    So no matter what is happening in the collective reality, none of it can touch you unless you invite it. As an example, let's say that some calamity occurs in the collective reality that effects your home town. With the right "attitude" the Universe might arrange for you to be out of town when the calamity occurs. Or if you are home, you will miraculously remain unscathed or spared from the worst of it.

    The right attitude to avoid directly experiencing events in the collective reality is to absolutely believe that you are creating your reality and to absolutely believe you are always safe — that nothing can harm you! If you fall into fear, worry, or doubt all bets are off!

    Summing It All Up

    You are creating your reality with your thoughts, beliefs, desires, and more. The backdrop to your story, the collective reality and the stage that it plays out on, are just there to create a context within which to play out your story and create your personal reality. You can create whatever you like in your life, and it is not limited to what's out there in the collective reality, but it does provide a grab bag of options to select into your life. But they are all truly optional — they can't become a part of your direct experience unless you invite them in with your thoughts. The collective reality is a distraction that lures you into focusing on what is and what was instead of what can be.


    Knowing this enables you to stop worrying about what you can't change and start focusing on what you can — namely where you put your focus and attention to, what beliefs you hold, what thoughts you entertain, and what you imagine and create for yourself.

    By deeply understanding how your reality construct is generated and that you are the one who controls the process you can experience a profound liberation from fear. And once you transcend your fears, especially if you master the other skills of deliberate creation, you will find that your life experience will begin to improve dramatically.

    Be fearless, dream big, and expect wonderful!

    Default Re: Do we create (or at least co-create) our reality and reality experience?

    I think we do create our realities. And co create them too. Not only with other human beings, but also with the creator itself, which, as my understanding goes..is everything around us.

    And yet, there are other variables as well, such as destiny, pre ordained events, or just the high probability of things occuring..which imo were all put in place before we were born.

    Reconciling the 2 isn't possible intellectually, this much is clear. It's a dichotomy intellectually, but it makes sense on an intuitive spiritual level. I have no way of proving this of course, but this is my feeling.

    We can't have this conversation without discussing the nature of time, of course. And if we accept that all time - past, present n future - are all occurring right now, the slope becomes a little more slippery. But if we view time and space as a giant hologram - all occuring now but constantly in flux - we can see how the dichotomy might reconcile itself.

    I think of it metaphorically as a giant painting on a wall, a "finished" product that is still changing itself...but within the confines of its completeness.

    In any moment the past, present and future are set..but it can change on a dime. So yes our futures are determined and no they are not. It all depends on the moment in question.

    So...its already all been created *and* we are all creating it now. If that makes any sense.

    And now I will stop pretending like I know what I'm talking about

    Default Re: Do we create (or at least co-create) our reality and reality experience?

    A very very long time ago I had a nightmare. Many many years later, that nightmare became my reality. A long complex series of circumstances/events over many many years made it possible and then realized.

    What to me therefore appears to be a fact, is that consciousness is somehow connected to future events - either potential future events or future events that have already at that point been set or future events that are so likely and detailed that information about them can be played way before they happen.

    So what is going to happen, might already have been recorded and stored non-locally somewhere. That begs the question, how much do we really contribute in the creation process since it appears at least some of the future events can already be witnessed before they actually take place.

    It is kind of a bit strange to think of, that tonight I might see a part of my life as it will be on a day 23 years from now.

    At the current moment I think that God creates fruits of love into our collective reality under certain guidance by at least the individual but probably also by the collective, that there is a certain hallway/highway for an individual's life that is already set, but that within that hallway/highway it is the collective free will that ultimately determines on the detailed level what happens to individuals on the detailed scale.

    Since I believe that God is a God of absolute love, I cannot imagine that when God seeds our world with fruits of that absolute love, that it is meant to cause confusion, distraction, fear or sadness. There must be a great and incredibly intelligent plan behind all of these seeds.

    I am even thinking that realities are interconnected, such that one seed in this life might somehow have been planted to cause a certain realization in some other realm. In other words, I am thinking that there might be certain seeds of absolute love that hold such a high vibration when they are chosen out of free will, that their true manifestation/intent is experienced as a reflection in a higher realm where the vibration of that reflection is within the vibrational range of that realm. Therefore I am also thinking that whenever a being here on earth uses its free will towards a seed of absolute love, it literally impacts that being and its context in one or several realms. If that is the case then the point is not the direct outcome of using the free will towards seeds of absolute love, but to use the free will towards seeds of absolute love, unconditionally - so that as many as possible of the plans behind those seeds of absolute love may come into fruition in the totality of creation.

    I have two strong indications that this might be the case, only that those manifestations have shown in dream, so they are indicative rather than concluded actual. (because to prove this you need direct access to multiple realms)

    Even forgetting metaphysics and looking at it from the most basic of all levels, the reality we perceive doesn't spring up or materialize from nothing and from nowhere. We create, have created, and continue to create and cocreate, everything in our day-to-day experience.

    At some point I hope to write my own response to this question but I could not hold back a second longer with regards to what I am writing next...

    These responses simply blow me away. These responses show me why this forum is such an wonderful place of which to be a member.

    I am simply stating my gratitude for these responses and and my gratitude for this forum.
    All the above is all and only my opinion - all subject to change and not meant to be true for anyone else regardless of how I phrase it.

    Great answers here, for certain.

    I'll just add one tiny note ...

    We are creators and cannot stop creating. It is all we do, whether that creation is an intention, a feeling, thought, a dream, a word, a physical manipulation, an energetic one, a spiritual one, we create on all frequencies constantly. However, we lost our original plan, our blueprint (is this what humanity searches for?). As a result, our creations have become more or less self serving, both individually and collectively. It is within these lost creations that we perceive (and thus experience) what we call evil.

    Another view on this is that without that blueprint we have no context except that which is within ourselves, and we create only from what is within us, this then does create the reflection of what is inside us, both individually and collectively. Perhaps if we can see that much of what we refer to as evil, is merely unguided creations borne from a highly restricted context (our physical consciousness), as opposed to something outside of us that is attacking us, we could learn to overcome it.
    When you are one step ahead of the crowd, you are a genius.
    When your are two steps ahead, you are a crackpot.

    Everything we have, has been one way or another created by our thoughts whether it's by our owned thoughts or thoughts that have been cleverly engineered by outside interferences such as media...TV, Newspapers ect.

    Thoughts are the most powerful thing we have but unfortunately most people haven't got a clue how the control system works and allow their reality to be led by controlled consciousness.

    Do we create or do things manifest in direct relation to what we need vis a vis our ontological state ?

    Once I saw a thread on a forum which asked if anyone had ever had an original thought & if so what was it, no one was stupid or conceited enough to post anything claiming to be one oddly enough, pretty hard to be much of a creator if you can't have an original thought.

    In the Bible (this post gets rapidly less popular lol) man is given the role of naming Gods creations, no where have I seen such a succinct & profound insight into the nature of our being.

    Schrodinger's cat has been big with me the last year, at those moments when you escape cavernous jaws by nothing but belief, or refusal to entertain disaster,........ that said I'm not opening the box, I don't want to feed the bloody thing.

    And I will, too.

    Yes, we're not just watching the movie. We're deeply part of it, and it's all a collective improv.
    • Impossible coincidences,
    • Impossible repeated patterns,
    • Impossible conscious manifestations.
    • And, also 'impossibly', how we repeatedly meet up, like isolated Blue Wales in the huge ocean, with old friends (and also enemies) from previous lives.
      This might not be evident to everyone reading this, but I know for sure this happens — not just occasionally, but frequently. I once sat down and listed 200 people who I knew from previous incarnations, and that was 25 years ago. The number now would be thousands. To say it's literally miraculous how this is all choreographed (or, somehow, choreographs itself with everyone's involvement and agreement) is a vast understatement. It almost defies our human ability to describe.

    You are creating your reality with your thoughts, beliefs, desires, and more.
    I don't think that's all there is to it.
    There is some apparent random part which is neither "created" by the collective nor invited by myself - be it conscious or unconscious:

    How about the sudden unexplainable personal adversities, f.x. like some physical problem? I don't remember having invited those.

    As Eastern spiritual teachings and now Western teachers who have awakened tell us, we don't create anything. THAT which is one (God, or whatever word you prefer) creates everything. Everything. THAT which is ONE creates ideas, feelings, and habits as they move through consciousness. That which is created in the realm of the senses comes thru us. We only perceive duality consciously (although space, which is right in front of our noses, is non-dual. Only one space). Non-duality creeps into the consciousness once in a while but for almost all of us, operates in the background. This perceptual limitation is what creates a personal "story" which feeds the brain created ego. Thus the world of appearances.
    The idea that we create anything is wedded to the idea that we are all individual people having an individual "I", or ego. All people who have awakened see that there is no individual "I". It is the first thing that is seen upon awakening. When that is seen the individual story that supports the individual persona (ego) simply disappears. We live in a world of appearances. These appearances are truly not "real", but they sure do feel real. They keep on appearing as long as we have karma. Once all karma is exhausted, all appearances disappear and there is no need to take a body in the realm of the senses. So, this "reality" is a spiritual proving ground. Get beyond karma and REALITY comes into awareness. To sit at the right hand of God is to be consciously aware of the Reality beyond appearances. To bask in infinity.
    The actual reality turns off many people. How dare you say there is no individual "I" and this is all appearances! "I have a deep seated fear of losing my "self". I say that and many others say that too. David Carse, Jed McKenna, Adyashanti, Meister Eckhart, Rumi, the Zen patriarchs, Richard Rose, Jesus, Buddha, Lao Tse. The list goes on and on. It grates on our precious ego, strikes a harsh dissonant cord at first. However, the reality of the awakened state is striking. And delicious. And inviting. Filled with light. When one gets to the understanding that there is no personal self, any question of creation of reality goes poof. This is our natural state. There all that is perceived as real or unreal, dream state or not, comes together as one. All paradox goes away. No more troubling questions. Now how delicious is that?! Here's a taste of it from Jed McKenna>

    Indeed ACIM talks about this quite a bit.

    Excerpt from lesson 338

    I am affected only by my thoughts.

    It needs but this to let salvation come to all the world. For in this single thought is everyone released at last from fear. Now has he learned that no one frightens him, and nothing can endanger him. He has no enemies, and he is safe from all external things. His thoughts can frighten him, but since these thoughts belong to him alone, he has the power to change them and exchange each fear thought for a happy thought of love. He crucified himself. Yet God has planned that His beloved Son will be redeemed.

    Lmao that genuinely made me laugh out loud

    I remember flying to America for the first time and midway over the Atlantic the plane went through some severe turbulence, bottles of water were being flung into the air, food on plates was leaping on to the floor, luggage was falling out of the lockers. I was terrified! but when I looked up and noticed how calm and collected the air stewardess was just casually strolling through the isle, it made me realise it was just business as usual for people that have been through the ride before, and seeing how relaxed and calm they were, made me feel instantly more relaxed and calm within myself. (Even if it took a while for the nerves to settle)

    There's nothing wrong with a little turbulence every now and then--it's the wings falling off that we've got to watch out for.
