Human beings are designed to co-create, because we have self-awareness. As a result of self-awareness, you have the ability to formulate an image in our mind, of something that you do not experience through your physical senses and the outer consciousness. In other words, you can formulate a mental image (a mental matrix) of something that does not yet exist in physical manifestation.
The mental image you formulate will be limited by your imagination. For some, the imagination is limited by what they see and what they experience through their physical senses and the outer mind. In reality, there is no limitations for self-awareness and your imagination. They are free, they are infinite, and they are unlimited. The only thing that can limit your imagination is the limitations that you allow to be in the sphere of your consciousness.
So you co-create by formulating a mental image and then using your self-awareness to project that image upon the Ma-ter light (mother light). When that projection goes all the way through the 4 levels of the material universe (the identity, mental, emotional and physical), then you will co-create a physical form. The Ma-ter light will take on that physical form which you can then perceive it with your senses and your outer consciousness.
Yet when you start the co-creative process, you are creating something. If you are creating a mental image in your identity body of who you are, it is inevitable that your self-awareness - the stream of consciousness flowing through you - will flow through the matrix. And thus it will be projected upon the Ma-ter light in the identity realm. The same applies in the mental and emotional realms.
You cannot stop co-creating. You cannot stop being conscious (except for those who use many things such as chemical to alter the consciousness so that they are not really conscious). Even when you are asleep of physically unconscious, your emotional mind, mental mind and identity mind are not asleep nor unconscious. There is always a level of your being, where the stream of consciousness coming from your I AM Presence is flowing through these images, and therefore projected upon the Ma-ter light at that level.
The point is, all the things that you co-create at each level form what you have chosen to call spirits. And these spirits then become part of your total being, part of the lower being that many people call the soul.
The light from your I AM Presence will stream through it, and therefore you will continually co-creating through that spirit. This does not mean that you will be co-creating a new spirit at every moment, but it means that as the stream of awareness flows through a particular spirit, you will be reinforcing that spirit, and thus it becomes stronger and stronger.
VALUE OF THIS TEACHING
When we follow the Ascended Masters Teaching on this Self-Mastery path, we will walk the spiritual path in a much more conscious manner. In many previous teachings that have been released on this planet, people are given only partial understanding of what the spiritual path is about. And therefore you have not had the concept the Ascended masters have given you, that you have in the past created these spirits, that these spirits become part of your being. And if you identify with the spirits, you cannot actually free yourselves from them. For as long as you are identified with a given spirit, your consciousness will stream through it. This will have 2 effects:
you avoid at the same time see the spirits as a spirit and see it from the outside. If you do not see it, you cannot free yourself from it; and
your energies are tied up in the spirit, and you are reinforcing the spirit, making it more difficult for yourself to pull your consciousness away from that spirit and look at the spirit from the outside.
LOOK INSIDE YOUR SELF
First step you must take to engage in the process of closing the gap and dismantling the veil that keeps you apart from the River of Life (Holy Spirit) is, you must get your attention off seeking to change what is taking place OUTSIDE yourself, and instead put your attention on what is going on INSIDE yourself.
By living up to your own earthly standard to absolute perfection means you would not be in the River of Life. You are still be apart from the River of Life, because it is the standard that keeps you apart from it. That includes your expectations on others to live up to a standard based on your own perception filters.
If you want something more than what you have right now, you cannot stay in the state of consciousness you are in right now. If you want spiritual growth, you cannot remain comfortable. Death consciousness can make people comfortable or uncomfortable because of the second law of thermodynamics. It is an reinforcing spiral where everything is reinforced, whether it is separate or out of Oneness. Thus the death consciousness must become more and more extreme, until it makes you more and more uncomfortable.
After people have been comfortable for a while, it is inevitable that they will start going into a downward spiral, which will intensify until you come to that breaking point and you will realise "I cannot do this anymore, something must change!"
Then you start looking at it realistically, and say, "Well, I can either try to control the world around me, but isn't that what I have been doing and it hasn't worked for me, where I feel like I have nowhere to go and my life is continuous struggle, because I am always struggling against something inside myself?"
"Is there an alternative to this struggle? Is there an alternative to trying to change someone or something outside of myself? Ah! Indeed there is! What if I decide to look in the mirror and decide to pull the beam in my own eye and change my own consciousness?"
Then you come to that point that you can really realise that you cannot change your own consciousness by remaining comfortable and believing what you are believing right now. Whatever beliefs and expectations you have about life, about spirituality, spiritual growth and even Ascended Masters, you cannot maintain it and at the same time make progress on the path.
Ascended Masters path is not an external path, where you can do outer things and study outer teachings, but you do not have to look at yourselves.
7 SPIRITUAL RAYS
The 7 spiritual rays offered by the Chohans give you a frame of reference, which will systematically change your expectation and challenge your comfort ability. If you are willing to change the death consciousness, willing to endure this, then the Ascended Masters and the Chohan can help you.
When you sense the vibration of an Ascended Master, that is when you attain a frame of reference that is beyond words and beyond anything that can be put into book.
