In one of the novels that I’m currently working on, one of the supporting characters is a young god. To be more exact, his name is Emmett and he’s a wolf god. At this point in the manuscript some of the animal-people come to him in hopes that he will be able to break the ethereal chains of consciousness that bind them to the weasel queen Vivian, the antagonist of this tale. This is a big deal considering that Emmett is trying to figure out if he’s strong enough to be a productive god of living beings born without free will, not to mention the fact that if he does grant their request this means that they will come to him once need arises again. Sabrina, Emmett’s adopted human mother and protagonist, tells him to embrace who and what he is. Meaning Emmett must begin thinking like a god and therefore considering what he want for his world and the beings that live in it. As he start to ponder his godhood Sabrina remind him that he’s not God, Creator of All That Is and All That Isn’t, and because of that he owe it to his people to go beyond the basic needs of survival with his thinking.
This got me to wondering, as a god, what do I want to immediately manifest into my realm of reality? Knowing that my basic needs of survival are met, how do I continue with my innate desire to evolve and create? More importantly what do I create? The answer didn’t come easy and because of that I want to share it in both my novel and in this blog post.
Keeping with the wisdom that knowledge and experience is best obtained according to divine process, I decided that there would only be three things that Emmett/I would focus on during this story/stage of spiritual development; the first being embracing the idea of Higher Truth and Unity. I see that in order to properly deal with whatever may come next I need to personally know that all is love, all is one, and everything is connected and that is different from knowing that all is in divine order with divine intelligence. It’s the same thing for Emmett; he doesn’t know what will come to the connected race of animal-people once he breaks their chains but he understand that in order for life in his reality to evolve to the next level he needs to let all people experience what it is like to be both part of the whole and an individual. He has taken up the beliefs of his father which stated that we can still be connected while being apart. Just thinking about embracing Unity in a way that enable the whole to move on to the next step changes things for both worlds.
The second thing of focus is the realization that in order for people to truly be free they need to follow their own inner guidance, or soul, and let the traditional idea of leadership fall to the wayside. Vivian has proven herself to be a ruthless leader by killing, maiming, and keeping the animal-people in fear just like her father. Many gods have given their lives in an attempt to bring Vivian down, as a matter of fact it is by Vivian’s magic that Emmett’s father died, and that is something that frighten Sabrina and Emmett. But as a human Sabrina understand that the animal-people have it in them to make decisions for themselves since some of them are coming to Emmett and the guardians for help. Although Emmett believe that the chains must serve a purpose since the Creator of All That Is and All That Isn’t made them at the beginning of time, he look at the humans who follow their own individual paths but seem to be moving as a unit and gain inspiration. I too am watching my people seek individual leadership of self and I must say that I like it. By keeping with my first focus I am able to know that as one mind we are moving according to a divine directive which is leading us to total experience of this realm and more. Therefore, it is my job and the job of each and every reflection of me to support a new definition of freedom and independence.
The final focus is on the belief that people are the living abundance and that they are creators not just co-creators. No longer infants, we are becoming aware of the fact that what happens in our lives is all our doing while still embracing the truth that one way the universe support our thoughts is with the Universal Law of Cause and Effect. I see this focus as being the most exciting of the three as I now get a chance to see what I’m made of as a creator. Again, not that I don’t think that the universe is here by my side creating with me but I no longer believe that I am dependent on the universe to work ‘with’ me, I am and have always been free to create what I like. I am abundance and all is within me because all is one. In the story Sabrina knows that she has to convince all the animal-people that they are capable of creating anything that they desire by themselves since they are a magical race after all and have been producing according to the will of the chain bearer since the dawn of time. This is a concept that is totally new to them and is not well received at all but Sabrina doesn’t give up and by the end of Emmett’s first meeting with the people who want their chains broken she has convince everyone to just think about the idea of pulling on their own resources.
So those are the three things that Beings of SEU- book one will focus on. As a storyteller I’m excited to share my exploration into these areas beyond a one page blog entry and hope that by the time I’m finished with this second draft I will be well into the change of my own thoughts, behavior, and experiences. That’s one of the perks of being a writer.
