Our entire culture has been built upon projection, and at this moment you and I are continuing the process. Projection creates meaning. By themselves events are meaningless until we give them value. If we attach value, everything changes. We react to information (which often comes prepackages with spin included) so quickly that we lose sight of the power we are exerting as creators.
Everything that is real at one level of consciousness is unreal at another.
If you want to make an angel, you must project it, but to do that, you must be in a state of consciousness that accepts angels as real. Angels are a part of the whole self system.
While we are creating in the material world, we are affecting every level of consciousness and therefore every level of creation. Meaning is never isolated. Angels exist because they have been projected in consciousness. Just as a movie requires an image, a projector, and a viewer, so do angels.
If you occupy any of the roles–seer, seen, or the process of seeing–you occupy all of them. Only in the unity of all three roles do we achieve our complete powers as creators.
The three-in-one state wouldn’t matter if it didn’t affect everyday reality, but it does. It takes an observer to turn the invisible energy state of an electron into a specific particle located in time and space. Before the observer effect takes place there is no electron; there is only the possibility of one.
