In recent months, through blogs and classes, I've been exploring Love Based Learning and how it differs from Fear Based Learning. In the online class tomorrow the subject is Love Based Creation and what's available now to assist us to graduate from Fear Based Creation, which involves the use of the mind and emotions to manipulate or control life events to produce better or more personally favorable outcomes. It often involves things like implanting thoughts, or new beliefs, and then feeling into that, with the hope that the better feeling state will result in life circumstances that match that state. Essentially it's the land of self-modification and tinkering, as though we're machines or computers or systems that can be adjusted according to formulas and equations such as different input = different output, installing the right way to think, calling up the right feelings, so that life will go your way and you'll get what you want more of the time. When it takes on a more spiritual framework, the universe becomes this thing that you can get to work for you to bring you what you want, if you ask, and if you're open to receive. So we then jump into the land of deciding what to ask and how to ask it correctly, and whether it's better to be general or specific, and then how to get into receiving mode, or make yourself be more open or available for the universe to be able to find you and give you what you want.
At some point we get tired of fear based creation, where separation prevails, and we have to stay on top of maintaining our identity as the "subject" trying to get life to co-operate or attempting to change how we are by bettering our-self, healing, modifying our-self and becoming this perfected thing that hopefully can adopt the right stance or perspective to have things work out. It's also full of so-that's. So even the adjustments that we attempt to make that are seemingly loving, still have agenda's based in manipulation and control. Doing one thing so that what we need or want will hopefully happen for us.
As we acknowledge what has been, take a moment to breathe and be present with the exhaustion, the confusion and the let-down at trying so many things and still not having life work with us, or desired circumstances unfolding. In this willingness for a new way to present, let's see what can now be known about Love Based Creation and what elements within the atmosphere of love can be named or perceived. What can we now know? May life show each of us, in our own unique way, to invite us in to this field of love where we can initiate creation in a new way. May we all be loved, nurtured, resourced and supported to thrive.
