“You will become as small as your controlling desire; as great as your dominant aspiration”
The Laws of Creation
In my last post, ‘Empower Your Vision with Skill‘, I talked about the importance of vision and applying what you know (skill) to what you have seen (vision) so you can get what you want (purpose) in a more refined way. But one important question is ‘how?’
Whatever knowledge you have most times determines what you do when faced with challenges. It then depends on how you apply it, your skill that determines if you come out ‘alive’.
Like the ‘why’ question, ‘how’ is also one question that requires principled answers. It’s just like a kid asking you how to fish. Telling this kid the way to hold the hook and swing it won’t answer the question. But giving him answers like the kind of bait to use, the time of the day to fish and the part of the river to fish from would make things a lot easier. The same thing goes when you’re faced with the question of how to achieve your vision. You need to know the principles, the laws governing the whole process so you know what to do when you ought to do it.
This post is simply a product of a seminar I attended recently and in the next few sentences, I’ll be sharing with you what’s called the Laws of Creation.
You would agree with me that this world we live in didn’t just emerge out of thin air. It was ‘created’ through vision, for a purpose by someone who knew He had the power to create it, just like we have the power to create our own world. Let’s see a few laws on which this world was created.
1. The Law of the Source
The question here is who are you and where is your vision coming from? Is your vision as a result of your mind playing games on you or is it from a much higher power, a realm beyond your control? You really need to know the source of your vision so that you can decide if it’s worth the investment. God had a vision of the earth He wanted to create and it was definitely from no other higher source other than Him.
2. The Law of Confusion
Sounds strange right? “And the earth was without form and void” (Gen 1:2). According to the Oxford Dictionary, void means ‘completely lacking something’. Without form simply means not having any particular shape or arrangement. Whenever I feel that something is missing in anything I find myself doing, I can go haywire trying to find out the problem. What does this mean? You’re bound to be confused when that vision first arrives. The question, ‘where do I start?’ fills your mind and you start wondering whether you’re on the right track. Regardless of how confused the beginning appeared to be, God made something out of it. You’ll do the same.
3. The Law of Meditation.
“And the spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.” (Gen 1:2). This is just like strolling a few blocks to ‘get some air’ or to ‘do some thinking’. I do this sometimes and it does help clear out all that confusion. What this really means is Think. Arrange all those broken pieces of thought and make a decision.
After thought comes action. “And God said…” (Gen 1:3)
Talk positively to the future you’re about to create. This is called ‘positive affirmation’. The world was created first with words, so start with that.
I’ll be dividing these laws into parts (series) so you don’t get overwhelmed all at once. In the next post, you’ll get to know the next three laws (i.e. The Laws of Illumination, Environment and Season).
Creation may be based on laws but is everything in life based on established laws or principles? I’d love to hear what you think.
For this glorious festive season, I’ll be giving away two quality ebooks by a respectable author for free.
