 were for something new.
I'm reminded of the scripture where we're told to "be in this world, but not of it." And another scripture reminds us of the importance of "not putting new wine into old wineskins, but rather put new wine into fresh wineskins." This raising of consciousness opens the door to the recognition that we're spiritual beings having a human experience. We are divine because we are made in the image and likeness of God. Yet, who or what is this God? Well, it's evident that Source is a creator, and since we are made in its image, then it would be safe to say that we are each a pixel on the screen of the collective consciousness.
Therefore, it becomes easy to understand that we, too, are creators and can create the world we want to see.
Look around, and you'll quickly see evidence of the fact that we as humans have invented — or created — a diverse world of technology, industry, and communication. And because of this symbiotic relationship with Source, we've landed on the moon, built the tallest building, climbed the tallest mountain, and have finally come to understand that "if we can see it in our head, then we can hold it in our hand." We are one with this loving presence that breathes through us, like us, and can safely assume that the outdated view of an anthropomorphic God can finally be put to rest.
So, how do we create or "manna-fest" in conjunction with Source? Think in terms of each of us is an artist with a paintbrush. We "paint" our little slice of the world with our thoughts and especially our feelings. When we ponder the idea that we're thinking thousands of views every day, we soon realize an inherent power lies within us. We now can pick a new color/thought in our metaphoric palette to begin the process of manifesting our desires. Unfortunately, we've become hardwired due to the domestication of societal standards. Don Miguel Ruiz speaks to this in his book, "The Four Agreements": "At an early age we learn punishment and reward and form an image as perfection to try to be good enough to get the reward." Our attempts at creating this image, in reality, are almost always carried out in the physical world, without a lot of thought regarding how we can do the work energetically. Now, add prejudices, long-standing beliefs about ourselves based on other people's opinions, along with religious dogma from mainstream churches, and you soon have a recipe for half- baked reasoning.
So, you can easily understand, because of our early programming, why we might find it challenging to comprehend how powerful we indeed are. When we realize that we are each a representation of God in action — a piece of the pie —then just like the butterfly, we are transformed to fly above who we thought we were and experience freedom on a level we never thought possible.
What are we waiting for, and why are we holding on to a chrysalis that no longer serves us? When we give up making justifications for limiting beliefs that prevent our potential growth, then we soon realize we've always been pregnant with purpose. We were meant to be free!
