Throughout the Releasing Your Unlimited Creativity material it is said we have the creative power and creative ability to consciously create our experiences and the reality we experience. Many may wonder, what exactly is meant by “the reality we experience?”

Reality, by definition, is the fact, state or quality of being real or genuine. It is that which is real such as an actual thing, situation, or event. It is seen as the sum or totality of real things. Reality is that which exists, as contrasted with what is fictitious or merely conceived. In philosophical type discussion it is considered the absolute or ultimate, as contrasted with transitory phenomena or the apparent.

Real by definition is having existence or actuality as a thing or state. What is real is not imaginary. Something that is real is seen to have actual existence and not merely possible, apparent or imaginary. That which is real is in accordance with appearance or claim. It is genuine and not artificial or counterfeit. What is real represents the true or actual as opposed to the apparent or ostensible. What is real is unpretentious. In law, it pertains to property regarded as immoveable or permanent as land or tenements and pertains to things as distinguished from persons.

Now if we look carefully at both the concepts of reality and real they imply Physical Creation. Technically, there is no room in the definitions of reality or real for the spiritual or the unseen aspects of Creation. Especially if that which is spiritual or unseen cannot be fully and totally agreed upon by another and experienced in the same way. This of course poses some interesting questions.

One question is how do we agreement on something that is non physical, like the spiritual, and the unseen? One way to find agreement is if we can create a reproducible physical effect as a result of the unseen that we can reproduce. That is what physics had done with the unseen world like electromagnetic radiation.

If we cannot create a reproducible physical effect, the answer is we can’t get agreement unless we can somehow get into the mind of the other and see through their eyes. That is, we hold their perspective in all ways which is next to impossible for our experiences of life which give rise to our perspective our different.

This then poses a problem. When it comes to something that is not physical and subject to our perception, how do we know we are talking exactly about the same thing as another? Hence the issue as to what is real and what is reality. If I can’t experience exactly what you experience we cannot necessarily agree that what we experience is the same that you experience. But I can’t get into your perception and you can’t get into mine. How do we know that someone experiences exactly what we experience? In this case we would probably be force to say what we experience is not real but imaginary. Or, at least part is real and part is not real. The question then becomes, “Can we ever know if what someone experiences is what we experience in the same way we experience it?”

For other than the physics purest, the answer is actually yes. The answer lies in the statement, “Allow effectiveness to be your measure of truth.” This can be looked at in two ways. Look at the concept of the atom. The atom as most understand it, does not exist. It is purely a concept that described a phenomenon we experience in nature. However with the concept of the atom, we have created the whole world of Chemistry. It is hard to argue that atoms do not exist with such results.

Yet, quantum mechanics says that atoms are just localization of energy. That is, the energy has a greater probably arranging itself into a nucleus and orbiting electrons that it does some other form. As for the nucleus and electrons existing, it has been show that energy has a wave particle nature. Energy can exist as a wave or a particle depending how it is observed and the conditions under which you observe it. So one can argue if the electron, the nucleus and atoms really exist as we experience them. So what is real?

What is important in this discussion of reality is there are several concepts that seem to even conflict. Yet within the concept and definition of energy as the capacity or ability to produce an effect, we can bring them into a coherence if not agreement.

One concept is that thoughts are real although they seem to be non physical but imaginary. The reason for this is we can change a thought and change what we experience physically. Some thought can be experienced physically, other cannot. But the thoughts cannot be experienced physically are nonetheless real as those that can be experienced physically for they arise from the same “stuff” or material of creation. In actually, it can be said our thoughts are energy for they have the capacity to produce an effect.

Another is that based on the definitions above we would have to say, unless something can create a physical effect repeatedly, we can’t really say it real. This then bring up the issue that although something we experience, such as thoughts, dreams and the like, that cannot create a repeatable physical effect does not mean what we experience is not real and exist even if it only resides in our imagination.

Then there is the reverse of this issue. That is certain types and kinds of physical experiences can create non physical experiences repeatedly. This bring us the issue of unseen realms and why mystical and spiritual traditions work to create a particular perspective in an individual through particular physical practices in order to have a particular type and kind of non physical and physical experiences.

A fourth is that how we observe is determined by what we think and believe. What we think and believe are thoughts and they are real. What we observe determines what we seen and experience and what we see and experience determines what we believe. Even if what we seen and experience only lies in our imagination, it is nevertheless real. It just isn’t necessarily physical. The question is, “What can we do with what is in our imagination and does it allow us to create experiences we can share with another?”

In reading this discussion you may be drawn to judge this discussion and irrelevant, unreal and unsubstantiated by fact and physical observation. However the opposite is true. The ideas and concepts with the Releasing Your Unlimited Creativity material has caused individual to experience their lives and Creation much differently than they had previously. Within the Releasing Your Unlimited Creativity material is an energy that can cause you to have both different experiences than you now do and experience reality differently. Or, alternatively said, experience a different reality.

Only you can determined what you see and experience. You will have to do your own experiments with this material to see if it in fact does allow you to consciously create your experience and the reality you experience. For many this understand is too much to be believed. Yet, it is for the precise reason that it has allow individual to change their experiences and the reality they experience that this material is made available. All that can be said is try it and allow its effectiveness to be your measure of truth.
