Within the Creative Cycles lies completion. This hidden process serves as a key to our motivational process. Without this motivational element, nothing would eventually be done. Human civilization would come to a halt, or at least drag itself on, unless completion was an aspect of civilian life.
It’s within our genes as well. Human DNA, our genetic structure, functions as an ongoing program that requires results, change and sustainability. That’s what keeps it alive. Eating food requires completion. Guess how that looks when completed? Graduating from grade school requires completion. Without completion and reward, we would not have the motivation to move onward. The same occurs with every academic achievement. Finding a job requires completion of a job-search. Finding a spouse, no matter how difficult, is a point of completion, which usually takes place at the altar. Let your mind ponder on how many Acts of Completion you have experienced.
Many famous psychoanalyst: Maslow, Hertzberg, Freud, Erikson, Piaget, Wilber, Washburn, to name a few, intensively wrote about human motivational factors. As correct as they were, none really delved deeper into the creative and karmic aspects. Neither did they link how creativity and karma affect human motivational processes.
Did you ever sense what serves as the driving force behind humans and civilizations? Did you ever sense what propels you into your next creative pursuit? Look at it this way, as a young person, you learn how to boil water. Wow! Now you want to boil a potato or frankfurter, or cook an egg. Then you progress an attempt to cook pancakes, a roasted chicken, until you finally can prepare a whole meal for yourself or family. It’s a creative progression that upon each creative event you complete, you subconsciously become motivated. It’s a behavior and biological achievement as well. The same occurs within societies, nations and civilizations.
The less powerful term, “Closure” to me infers wrapping it all up. But “Completion” to me means a formal ending of a creative event: “It is DONE!” With religious prayers and hymns, we sing “AMEN!” In my DNA Self-Healing Program, we use the term: “It is Done” … (the again a bit Louder) “It is Done” … (and again very Loudly) “It is DONE!” Try doing that! (“It is Done” … “It is Done!” … “It is DONE!!”)
Completion tells the Universe and your Higher-Self that the creative process has been fulfilled and you are ready to move on with Life. Now here’s the caveat: whatever you create must be completed with unconditional love. “What? What if I hated what I created?” Well then, declare that a mis-creation … end it … honor it … and unconditionally release it back into the Universe. It’s over! There’s nothing I can ever do about it. And “I forgive myself as well. … It’s DONE!”
Nonetheless, if I do not complete my creation with unconditional love, I immediately invoke Karma. You heard of that term before. Karma signifies to the Universe and to your Higher-Self that you creation is still pending finalization and will always be attached to you, even into other Lifetimes, until it’s again recognized and completed. “How can this be?” you may ask. Well, remember, it’s in your genes. All is known there and can even be passed on into newer generations.
My advice to all is be careful of what you create. Because what ever, no matter how small the creation may be, it requires unconditional love for it to be completed.
Have Fun, Peace and Health,
