Alo: If you can imagine it, then it is not new… to create a new thing, the new thing cannot be imagined, until after the thing is created… no words can describe what has not yet existed… a seed likely cannot imagine itself becoming a tree… creativity, is by one's inner beauty… creativity is not by imagination…

Jun: Then… how would a person know? How can I feel confident that I am progressing?

Alo: There is no need to give mind to progress… only give mind to correctness… correctness nascents the new creation.

Jun: No hints? None? Not so much as a synonym?

Alo: No… holding the thought in your mind, the thought would itself prevent creativity… just do what is correct, Nature's way… the rest will happen by itself.

De: Expectations… goals… desires… not Nature's way…

Jun: And, so then, I am to do this thing, but without my knowing why, nor knowing what to expect?

Alo: Yes…

Jun: Ha! Not so much as a story or parable about someone's path or discovery?

Alo: I may smile, but the answer is still no…

Jun: Then why would anyone choose the path? If no one knows where the path leads, then why enter the path? Why follow the path?

Alo: The path, it is, self-created, as a person walks… it is not a choosing of an existing path… it is as choosing correctness, and then doing nothing more than correctness… the correctness, it creates by itself… no other way is possible… Nature's way.

Jun: Okay, so it is reasonable that most everyone wants to be correct… even criminals want to be correct in their crimes… but, something is missing here… you speak of self-creating one's own path, and you speak of Nature's way, but to me, I do not recognize how the two things connect. I am trying to find a useful simile… it would be like correctly nailing nails into pieces of wood… correctly doing a thing, without having a purpose of doing, the correct nailing of nails probably will not result in the creation of a wall or house… must there not be a goal of some form? Some form of plan for future results?

Alo: Build walls, where walls are needed… build harmony, where harmony is needed…

Jun: Okay, that at least gives me a little more reason… correctness, of several different ways, enables harmony between the ways… that I can understand, but still, to me it feels as though something is still missing… harmony is good, and harmony is a good goal, but what are the results? What advantage or usefulness does harmony permit?

Alo: All advantages… no advantages… creative advantage, yes… material advantage, no, but yes also… root of Source, creates… Source is not the created thing…

Jun: Creative advantage… what is it like? What form does it take?

Alo: Nature's way, nothing is identical, the same, nor equal… your form is your own… not the same as anyone else's… there can be no one set goal, nor can there be only one same result… your creation, it is your own… you become as beautiful, or as ugly, as you yourself have chosen…



Jun: Good thought… then, choosing, the beauty would be relative to Nature's way, while the ugly would be against Nature's way… and… if a person chooses material advantages, then the person would be ugly relative to Nature's way, and incorrect… therefore, the beauty would be harmony with Nature's way… then, though a person might believe that they are beautiful because of their appearances and material wealth, still they would be ugly because their heart is not correct with Nature's way…

Alo: Yes, close…

Jun: Good… that gives my mind and heart a better reason of why correctness is correct… and too, the idea settles more firmly… if an individual is wanting to be correct, then, the only logical choice is to be correct relative to Nature's way… Nature's standard… any other choice could not be correct.

Alo: Yes…

Jun: But still, I wonder, and I pose to myself doubts… how will I know that I am being correct? How will I know when my own harmony is actually harmony, or if I am not yet of harmony?

Alo: If you can imagine yourself with harmony, then it is not yet harmony… for some of us, we experienced many different degrees of inner harmony, and we believed each time that we had found the correct harmony… but, later, more harmony, better harmony… we then saw that each degree of harmony was as if nothing compared to the next degree… we now know that there is no boundary, no limit of what is possible… if a person claims to have found the ultimate harmony, then, that person has not yet experienced creative harmony.

Jun: Oh, and now this sounds as if though the idea of creating one's own path, not only has no destination, but also no end?

Alo: The only foreseeable end, is one's end of life… destination, is one's life.

Jun: Ah, I like that… yes, I like that a lot… no destination, no goal to reach, nothing to follow, nothing to believe… but rather, something to live… something real, of quality, of beauty, and never boring… always changing, always improving… yes, I like that… it helps me walk away from the desires of wanting something outside of myself, and instead, enables me to wish for my spirit to become beautiful… yes, thank you, this has helped me a lot.

Alo: The goodness within Morning Dove's thoughts, it flows within one's own path… twenty years for a child to mature from seed… fifty years for seed to mature a tree… two-hundred years to mature a community from seed… a thousand years to mature a people from seed… you, are as the seed… what you choose today, becomes the pattern that your descendants will become…

De: Care for other people… be, root of Source…

Jun: Thank you… yes… my heart is happy with the idea… my life, then, it does, now, have meaning, and usefulness… ah, but… I just now realized… oh, I just now realized something more… and the idea of being a seed has become less important, not a thing to dwell upon with desire… I think, maybe, I am recognizing the real thing, a far more wonderful thing… I will ponder my thoughts for days, but… if this thought is correct, then I can now understand why even the goals are unimportant…

Alo: Each time that you find a good thing, it only means that you are then closer to the next good thing that will be better than the previous one… two new ideas today, the second better than the first… tomorrow, a new experience, it will be better than today's…

Jun: No desire… then, it really is possible is it not?

De: Yes… a love with desire… it is not love at all…
