Co-Creation – Liberation from Creation

I recently returned home from a retreat held in Vietnam where Serge Benhayon was presenting on “The Process of Evolution – The Living Sciences of Human Life.” It was an expansive topic and truly revelatory. It was presented that we are all part of a living science and Universal order where we can either choose to align with the evolutionary pull towards a one unifying way, working together in co-creation, or we can – by our own free will – choose to resist this natural pull.

Simply put, life in self-made creation (in contrast to co-creation) is one where we are immersed in all the attractions, distractions and emotional highs and lows of our physical life. It can be difficult to clearly see for our ‘vision’ is limited by the very consciousness or quality of our chosen thoughts and beliefs, which then become our life, and therefore our reality.

As my awareness continues to expand, more is unfolding and coming to light around this understanding.

I took this photo in Vietnam before the retreat officially began and it was reflecting to me all that was to unfold. In all its beauty, the lotus flower is still within the consciousness of creation.

Co-Creation – Liberation from Creation?
It is however, often used to represent the state of liberation in Buddhist philosophy, rooted in the mud, while its flowers blossom well above the waterline, unaffected by the muddy waters of attachment. This was often seen as the final goal, but this is actually where it begins – the beginning of a Way of Living, free from the imprisonment of our self-made creation.

When I was young I felt like we were only being told part of the story of life; it just wasn’t right that we were born, we lived and we departed. I knew that there was much more to human life than that, and this led me to investigate many spiritual ideas and beliefs over many years. I believed at that time I was seeking to be liberated from this limited life, and to reach an enlightenment of some sort. I spent many hours in meditation trying to reach this elusive place of understanding I was seeking.

On reflection though, I question what did I want to be liberated from, and what or where to then?

It was not true liberation I was seeking, it was actually life I was looking to escape from; the harsh reality of what I felt overall was a loveless world, where we were living so much less than I knew to be possible.

In truth I was looking to re-connect with my Soul, and it is through the grace of my Soul’s light, and my loving dedication and acceptance of my responsibility, that I began to see clearly through the grand illusion I was held in, the deception of right and wrong, the highest ‘good’, and the illusion of false enlightenment.

What I didn’t see then was that we are all in this together and we can only truly evolve and be free of this way of life, with its limits of our self made creation, when we are working together towards our return to a one unified way of being. The tension we can often feel is because we don’t live this way, and we are constantly being pulled to this awareness while shattering the illusion of the individual separated life.

Our Soul is constantly communicating our oneness with us.

I was discussing this awareness with a friend of mine and she beautifully expressed it this way: “If we see a macadamia nut fallen from the tree we may crack the hard shell and experience the enjoyment of the taste of the nut, but if we stop at this, we are forgetting that single nut comes from a huge tree with many other nuts and the possibility is there for each to flourish into many more fruit bearing trees, ever expanding.”

In my experience trying to understand life and my place in the greater plan from a dimension that can only see its own creation was futile. This is why it never made complete sense to me, as I was caught in the web of it. It was like being in a lift and getting out on the fourth floor so to speak, and that becomes my reality, that’s all that I can see. However, as I stay open to the possibility, and now a knowing that there is a fifth floor and beyond, a greater awareness is unfolding, becoming available, and so much more is being revealed.

I have a new appreciation of the truth of ever expanding Evolution.

The Lotus flower now represents to me the liberation from the limits of self imposed creation and the beginning of an Age Old Way of Living, a One Unified Way in co-creation that is ever evolving – a way that is ours to choose.

701 thoughts on “Co-Creation – Liberation from Creation

  1. Co-creation is feeling the all and wholeheartedly dipping all toes in, the whole body, with no self (individuality), responding and then giving it your personal all. Because there is a physical body, I personally sometimes feel limited by the pain or discomfort in my body and self (individuality) comes in. I roll over and not bring my all or self-criticise how I have been because of my pain. Feeling the all is sometimes too much to feel.
    By feeling the all, and by tenderly moving in honouring the pain or discomfort is responding to how to reimprint a way that is with the body in movement and action. It’s more supportive this way then to go into individuality to ‘try’ and deal with it or work out the pain. By continually feeling and tenderly holding my body in the love that is the all I am given how to be with the all.

  2. ” It can be difficult to clearly see for our ‘vision’ is limited by the very consciousness or quality of our chosen thoughts and beliefs, which then become our life, and therefore our reality. ” This is very true and then we make a picture of how things should be for us personally ,our family or friends. Or we are given pictures to live up to or tin plates and we then fill in the rest to our flavour , but there is no free choice in this process so no evolution just creating more of the same just difference colours and flavours but evolving no where just going around in circles.

    1. It becomes clear how it is we reduce ourselves through the ‘pictures’ we hang onto. We circle around and around and the stage has been set. There is not space for expansion if we do not shift the setting.

  3. Yes and we go around and around and around again until we are prepared to see outside of the bubble of our own making. As more awareness is allowed so does our view become more encompassing of the all we are a part of.

    1. And as we open up to more awareness, we also allow ourselves to feel the grandness and love that is inside us, all around us and beyond.

  4. Our Soul is in constant communication with us and in that we have to understand that life is so much more that the three dimensional life we all together think life is and this communication from our Soul is proof of that. When we all do come to this understanding, the idea of life being only three dimensional will come to an end and the multi dimensionallity of life will become our normal way.

  5. “a way that is ours to choose” There is a Divine freedom and a responsibility in the choices we make in the way we live that affects not only ourselves but also everyone and everything around us.

  6. ‘It was not true liberation I was seeking, it was actually life I was looking to escape from’ when I read this, I thought of the countless times I used meditation to escape from the world and shut everything out. Did it make life any better? No, if anything it made it worse because as soon as I opened my eyes it was still there staring at my face.
    Its only when I started to connect with myself I could feel the difference and then it became apparent meditation was about me connecting to me and who I am with the world.
    I see the world differently and my purpose is to reflect this to whoever is open to it.

    1. Yes, I once had a friend ask me how meditating for hours a day truly helped humanity and I never forgot that, it exposed the self indulgence that meditation can be if used to escape. One can connect in a moment.

  7. With so much war, aggression, abuse and corruption on all levels it is easy to see why people (including myself) have looked to meditation as a way to escape it all. However, Serge Benhayon has taught us all how it is possible to live within this current global strife and not allow it to effect us negatively if we simply stay connected with our bodily movements in everything we do and observe life while knowing we can read and understand what lies behind our actions.

    1. Observation is such a key that allows us to read and understand the broader picture of life, and our responsibility in this. Our connection and presence with the body truly supports us to see clearly.
