Why Channelled Information Is Good For Your Creativity
As I have written I had a career in advertising. What was important was to have a wide range of inputs that were both stimulating and provocative. (This is one profession in which a liberal arts background can really pay off.) You needed to be able to look for the similarity in dissimilar ideas and to look for different ways of seeing. For example the whole area of the paranormal was one of those areas.
When some one goes into a trance, and is able to channel the information, it does not appear to come from them. It appears to come from somewhere else, but where….? I have not a clue, but it is pretty clear it didn’t originate with them. if anyone has read the Jane Roberts Seth material it defies description to believe that it came from Jane. Where would she have learned this information? Secondly, she would have needed an IQ off the charts just to imagine it. And thirdly, this phenomenal expression only occurred in the altered state. However, my point is whether you choose to believe or not to believe information is not as important as how much it stimulates, and catalyzes you into a questioning state. Is this true? Could it be true? Can anybody show why it is not true? You will find if you click on the hyperlink at the top of paragraph it will take you to the Wikipedia page. (There you will see the discussion and of course the criticism. When I see criticism of material like this I simply say, “Read and check it out for myself. “)
I was viewing the History channel the other night and as you may know this channel brings you an amazing range of program topics. Whether it is a prophecy, a historical discovery, or an impending natural disaster the programs provoke, stimulate and amaze. Who is watching this? I don’t have the demographics, but I do know that they are well-educated and affluent. Why? Because there was a commercial for Porsche. Is there a connection between the provocative, creative and material well-being? Food for thought.
In a discussion with Terence Mckenna years ago, he pointed out that Plato had once said that truth, beauty and goodness were one in the same, but truth was the hardest of the three to really discern. What appears to be true at the moment may not be in fact. After all at one time it was widely held that the earth was flat. Perhaps the century we are in will bring scientific explanations to the paranormal.
So, with regard to philosophical issues and beliefs that can neither be proven or disproven it is best to seek the middle ground of “ I don’t know, but I am open.” In this manner you can allow your self to be in a constant state of wonder, a state of receptivity and a state of flow. In this state we have a chance to make connections that can both spark and guide us, and perhaps lead us to a new level of well-being in these rapidly changing times.
