My ego would like me to believe that my intelligence is born in a vacuum, one of my making. It wants me to believe that I’m special enough to create art, music, prose and answers to problems from the thin air of my beautiful self-sufficient vacuum.
Because I am a creative, I know this is bullshit.
Long ago, I became aware that new ideas and creative thoughts come from an open channel. I create or allow the opening of this channel, but I do not create or own the contents that flow through it.
I see this channel as a large vertical pipe with ideas, images and music floating down into it from above my head. I’m talking about the very same pipe that I channel entities through.
When I’m in my creative zone, I become a curator of what comes in. I can decide what to work on, which ideas to manipulate. I can choose an idea and add my take to it, or I can let it pass by.
The state I’m in during this process is a meditative one. Some people call it being in the flow.
Where does the information come from? I’m usually not aware of the origin or sender of the various creative ideas I receive, but I imagine they may come from muses, Spirit guides, angels, loved ones who have passed, or the collective consciousness.
Lately, I’ve been thinking that perhaps this channel never really closes, not even when I’m out of the zone and in my analytical mind. Could it be that this channel is a regular part of everyone’s intelligence?
That would mean that our individual intelligence is more of an intelligence system, an open system that includes input from others or elsewhere.
This idea goes along nicely with the belief that we are part of a larger whole. It gives me some comfort to think this way because it means I’m never truly alone. I need only examine my thoughts to see that some did not originate from me. Someone is helping. Someone is always near.
If we all came to believe in this theory, would loneliness not be cured?
My ego isn’t much into this idea because it sounds like loss of control, loss of self. But I’m currently satiating him with the caveat that he’s a really good channel. Yes. He has to allow others to offer information, but he gets to decide which information to work with.
My next step with this theory is to ask to be extra aware of thoughts and ideas popping in when I’m not in the zone, when I’m just thinking. Hopefully, I’ll be able to catch my intelligence system in action.
I’d love to hear your thoughts.
