In Crealitation, we call this planet Campus Earth. We are working to make this a happier, more peaceful campus by viewing ourselves as students of life, a.k.a sols.
In order to make Campus Earth more peaceful, we say that we work with anxiety rather than struggle with it. Language is very important in Crealitation (create + reality) because thoughts create reality, and language is the actualization of thought… remember?
Maze, the inventor of Crealitation, created assignments to help us work with our anxiety. In the Crealitation Game, there are dozens of assignments that allow us to be honest about our human condition and feel better in a practical way. As sols, assignments help us win our own Game.
I'll share one assignment that Maze gave me for working with anxiety called "Creature in the Cage." I have been testing it out and journaling about it this past week.
Here is my interpretation of the assignment:
Imagine there is a creature. Let’s call it a dog.
There is a dog that you are in charge of taking care of. Other people might help from time to time, but it is primarily your responsibility to care for this dog.
You’ve kept this dog in a cage for years. You yell at it, you whisper horrendous things to it, and you tell it how worthless it is. Whenever it begs to come out of the cage, you shut the door even tighter.
You often don’t feed the dog the food it needs to be healthy. Walking the dog is very low on your priority list. You sometimes even physically hurt the dog.
This description of abuse could go on, but I think that's enough terribly sad stuff for today.
If you go back through the scenario and replace the dog with your soul, your inner child, your inner fairy, your higher self, your angel, your divine light…. does it sound familiar?
We are each in charge of caring for our own body and soul. Other people may help from time to time, but the greatest responsibility lies in your hands.
How many of the above listed abuses have you subjected your body, mind or spirit to?
I know I have hurt myself in every single one of the above ways... plus one hundred or so more.
