All Is New, Always

Topic: Consciousness | Posted:February 16, 2012

When most of us look at the world, we believe that things exist. Trees exist, nature exists, we exist, and our family exists. Everything remains intact until something negative comes along and changes it; everything has a shelf life. A tree can last for hundreds of years. A human being can last for 80, 90, 100 years. Things in our world exist, until something happens that discontinues their existence.

But this is not true.

The kabbalists teach that the reason for our existence is what we call the Light of the Creator. This source of energy sustains everything in this world. Therefore, things do not exist because they have some innate ability to do so, but rather because this Light of the Creator is being infused anew into all beings and objects every second of every hour of every day.

The tree that stands for hundreds of years does not do so because it has that innate ability, but rather because every single minute a flow of the Light of the Creator comes into the tree and allows it to exist.

We do not live from one moment to the next because we have some inherent ability to live, but rather because the Light of the Creator constantly enters and sustains us. We live the next second not because we lived the previous one, but because the Light of the Creator comes into our body, into our soul -- in every moment.

It’s important to understand this, because if you don’t know and live this consciousness, it will be very difficult to change anything.

Using a simple example: When you are baking a cake, you gather all of the ingredients together, mix them and put them into the oven. Once the cake is baked, you might want to add more salt, or more sugar or maybe some flour -- but you can’t. Once it is done, it is done.

If we look at ourselves, our world and all that is around us as just existing-- not as being continuously created anew over and over -- then we cannot change anything. The individual cannot change simply because he is. Our relationship with others cannot change because they already exist.

We cannot truly change any aspect of our lives if we live with the consciousness that most of us have, which is that things just are.

However, when we’re able to change the way we view the world -- the way we view nature, the way we view ourselves, the way we view our lives and those around us -- and know that nothing truly just exists, but rather is constantly renewed by the Light of the Creator, then, of course, everything can change. Whether it’s disease, negative relationships, something disagreeable about ourselves, we can change every moment because every single second is brand new.

If you’re able to understand and live with this consciousness, then you have the ability to change everything.

How do you come to this consciousness? Practice.

Practice looking at the tree; know it does not exist now just because it existed before. Understand that it is being infused with new Light in this very moment.

Look at yourself and know that you’re alive right now, not because you were alive a minute ago, but because in every breath you take there is a new injection of the Light of the Creator into you.

Look at your children and know that they exist because in this very second they are receiving fresh Light -- not because they existed yesterday. Begin to train your mind in this consciousness: Creation occurs anew every second; nothing exists because it existed before; everything in the world is constantly infused with a new spark of energy from the Light of the Creator.

With this consciousness you are able to change everything and anything, because you know that the universe is created anew again and again, so then all is universally changeable. Everything can be changed in every moment.
