Chapter 10: A New Earth
“The primary factor in creation is consciousness. No matter how active we are, how much effort we make, our state of consciousness creates our world, and if there is no change on that inner level, no amount of action will make any difference.”
Consciousness flows through you into this world. It flows into your thoughts and inspires them. It flows into what you do and guides and empowers. It is not what you do, but how you do what you do that determines whether you are fulfilling your destiny. That current of consciousness is what determines quality. Future success is dependent upon and inseparable from the consciousness out of which the actions emanate. That can be either the reactive force of the ego or the alert attention of awakened consciousness. All truly successful action comes from the field of alert attention, rather than from ego and conditioned unconscious thinking.
There are three ways in which consciousness can flow into what you do and thus through you into this world. These are three modalities in which you can align your life with the creative power of the universe. The modalities of awakened doing are acceptance, enjoyment, and enthusiasm. Each one represents a certain vibrational frequency of consciousness. You need to be vigilant to make sure that one of them operates whenever you are engaged in doing anything at all, from the simplest task to the most complex. If you are not in the state of either acceptance, enjoyment, or enthusiasm, look closely and you will find that you are creating suffering for yourself and others.
Actions to take
Accept those things you cannot enjoy.
Bring enthusiasm to activities.
