How Faith Powers Your Creation Machine

All creation in your life comes through the field or plane of intelligence. Intelligence is the field that we use to manifest or populate our lives with circumstances, events and all the other props that make up the experience we call life. But, without faith, we cannot willfully make use of the process of creation in our lives.

The ability to lead a happy, effortless and meaningful life is our birth-right.

But What does this mean?

It means simply that the equipment and means are with us already. Even the instructions are with us. Its now up to us to use what we have been blessed with. And that requires us to have something known as faith.

The Bible illustrates this fact convincingly for us in the parable of the talents. It is more than a happy coincidence that the term talent is used in the story to refer to it as a unit of money. In today’s terminology, we would understand talent to be a native ability that we are blessed with. Is it really coincidence?

The verse that sums it all up for us says: “For everyone who has will be given more, and he will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken from him. And throw that worthless servant outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.” – Matthew 25:29-30.

Its a clear case of: ‘Use it. Or Lose it.’ The more we are able to tap into the field of intelligence, the closer it will draw to us and it will show up in our lives as abundance and peace of mind. To use it we need faith.

But if we do not use it, we will sink further into the darkness of ignorance, doomed to suffer frustration, unhappiness and pain the weeping and gnashing of teeth.

What exactly is faith?

The Bible gives us a surprisingly apt description: “Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and being certain of what we do not see.” – Hebrews 11:1.

It goes on to expand a bit on the above to tell us that faith is a process whereby understanding reinforces for us the knowledge of a process that we cannot see: “By faith we understand that the universe was formed at Gods command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.” –  Hebrews 11:3.

What we can understand from this statement is that God’s command is the “law” or “creative energy”; and we have the ability to set that force or creative energy in motion through faith.

Its easier said than done, though. We know everything about faith. We all know that faith can move mountains. But try as we might, it seems to be one heck of a job to put it to work for us.

Faith cannot be forced. To make matters worse, it seems to work sometimes; but mostly not.

Most of us don’t understand that we fail to activate faith and enjoy its miracles because we use the wrong faculty of mind for it. We use lower mind to think with faith. But faith is not a quality of lower mind. Hence, the disconnect.

Lower mind can only inform your consciousness of what it sees through the 5 organs of sensory perception. It plays the role of observer. It can only accept the information so received, as true or false and then react. It cannot act.

Intelligence is the faculty of mind that can decode, decipher and decide on the right goal to aim for. It is the decision-maker. It can act and initiate action.

Both functions of mind are radical opposites in nature. When we try to get both functions working together, we set both the opposing forces into action against each other. It is like having two minds working frantically against each other and going nowhere.

“If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do.” – James 1:5-8

The Bible tells us here that we can definitely expect to get nothing from the field of mind while operating in this mental state.

Creation is a great impersonal, cosmic law that marches on relentlessly. Whether we resist, or assist; or desist, it continues moving forward. Like the inevitable march of time, it waits for no man.

Faith is the key that allows us to plug into this great, impersonal power with a purpose and skillfully draw it into our lives, instead of merely being tossed about like flotsam on the great sea of life.

You might say that faith is like a window that allows the warmth and sunlight of deliberate creation into our lives, to light it up and make it meaningful.
