There are two aspects or two types
of knowledge, understanding, awareness and knowing. There is mental
or academic aspect that is reflected in what you can learn in the
classroom. It is about mentally knowing and understanding to be able
to communicate what is understood and known through mind.
Then there is the experiential aspect reflected in what one learns
through experience and can only be learned through experience. This
is the academic aspect that can only be learned in the laboratory.
It reflects what can only be learned in the every day world of
doing. Experiential knowing and understanding is about both feeling
the awareness and having experienced it.
Sometimes theses two aspects are one and the same. But more often
than not, they are quite different. In any case, the true awareness,
knowing or understanding of a topic is not complete until you have
both and you can move from one to the other in understanding.
The mental aspect is related to the mental understanding and related
to thinking. It is characteristic of the types and kinds of things
that can be taught as in a classroom. Unless you can comprehend
mentally, that is, your mind can characterized the concept in some
way, you will not really understanding what you experience. That is
why there are myths, stories, models, analogies, and the like in an
attempt to provide understanding of things that can only be felt.
To have a mental understanding with no physical experience of that
concept is ungrounded. That is, it has not been made physical. The
word has not become flesh. Although what you think and know mentally
has not be made manifest, it is nevertheless real and exists. It is
just not physically manifested.
The mental aspects are reflective in the traditional approach to
education employing lectures, seminars, coaching, consultation,
reading and the like. Additionally, the academic/classroom aspect
tends to address the more generic aspects that can be readily
applied to a group of individuals.
The experiential aspect is related to feeling. It is related to
actually experiencing a concept in some way either as a physical
experience of the body or an experience of the mind. It is here some
individual become confused between mentally knowing something and
mentally experiencing it.
The experience of the mind in the context used here is to experience
a concept as a mental understanding and/or actual perception. The
mental experience is characteristic of the “ah ha” experience or “so
that is what it means,” or “that is what it looks like.” It is
understanding the concept to be able to manipulate it and or change
it to manifest a creation. It is much like learning mathematics. You
have to experience the concepts by using that you learned to solve
problems you have never seen before. It needs to be noted that you
can have a mental concept but not the experience of the concept
either physically or mentally. But it is only in the experiencing of
the idea or concept that you really know and under it. Unless you
experience what you know and/or can use it to actually change what
you experience, you don’t know it as experience based. The
experiential aspect to knowing, an awareness or understanding is to
walk and act on your beliefs.
Similarly have an experience without the mental understanding will
lead to an inaccurate characterization of both the experience and
reality itself. You must have a mental concept to go with what you
experience if you are going to use what you experience consciously
in your creative endeavors.
Relative to the Releasing Your Unlimited Creativity Technology,
awaking to the fact you possess an unlimited creativity is different
than accepting it intellectually. Somewhere you will need to
experience it personally. The only way you can do that is to
consciously create with a very clear intention. It needs to be
realized, there are many issues of creativity that are better
addressed in the laboratory or by experience. These can only be
addressed by becoming creative and engaging in a creative activity.
To fully embrace your unlimited creativity is to be that fool to
step out to see if what you know is really true and effective in
your life. In doing so it is to step out our mind and step into
dance of creation. But, in this dance,
your partner, whether you are male or female, is the world itself
for you are the creator of the experience you have and the world you
experience is your creation.
