The eye with which I see God is the same eye with which God sees me. – Meister Eckhart
Whether we are aware of it or not, everyone is controlling matter all the time. Whether one wants to be a demonstrator or not, he is. It is impossible to not be a creator all the time; everyone is creating every day. We’re not aware of it because we just don’t look at it. Every thought—every single thought—materializes in the physical world. It is impossible to have a thought that will not materialize, except that we reverse it. If we say the opposite right after we have a thought, with equal strength, we just neutralize it. But any thought not reversed or neutralized will materialize in the future, if not immediately. So this thing of demonstration that we’re all trying so hard to do, we’re doing all the time, unaware of the fact that we’re doing it. All we need to do is to consciously direct it, and that we call demonstration.
Everything that everyone has in life is a demonstration. It couldn’t come into your experience had you not had a thought of it at some time prior. If you want to know what your sum total thinking is, it’s exactly determined by what’s around you, what you have: that’s your demonstration. If you like it you may hold it; if you don’t, start changing your thinking. Concentrate it in a direction that you really want until those thoughts become predominant, and whatever those thoughts are will materialize in the world. And when you begin to demonstrate consciously — small things — you may then realize that the only reason why they’re small is because you don’t dare to think big; that the exact same rule or principle applies to demonstrating a penny that applies to demonstrating a billion dollars. The mind sets the size. Anyone who can demonstrate a dollar can demonstrate a billion dollars.
This relates to what I have been saying, that there’s no difference between the spiritual and the material when you see it, the material being just an out-projecting of our mind into the universe and into bodies. And when we see that it is just an out-projecting of our mind, that it’s just a picture out there that we have created, we can very easily change it, instantly.
So to repeat, everyone is demonstrating, creating, every moment that he or she is thinking. You have no choice: you are a creator so long as you have a mind and think. To get beyond creation we must go behind the mind, and just behind the mind is the realm of all knowingness, where there’s no need for creation. There’s a higher state than creation: it’s the state of is-ness or beingness — sometimes called awareness, beingness, consciousness. That’s just behind the mind. That’s beyond creation. The mind finds it very difficult to imagine what it’s like beyond creation because the mind is involved primarily in creation, in creating. It’s the creating instrument of the the universe and everything that happens in the world, in the universe. So if you take this thing called mind, which is only a creator, and try to imagine what it is like beyond creation, it’s impossible.
The mind will never know God because you have to go just above the mind to know God, to know the infinite Being that we are, to know what it’s like beyond creation. The final state is beyond creation. The ultimate state is the changeless state. In creation everything is constantly changing; therefore, in creation the ultimate truth is not there.

But this shows you too how powerful your mind is; because everything you see, everything that’s around you, everything in your life, you’re creating and putting there to live your world. So that means you can create anything. Nothing is impossible: you can change your life; you can have anything in your life at all. They told me one of the biggest lessons you come to Earth to learn is how to manipulate energy. You can’t get out of the Earth school and graduate until you learn how to manipulate energy. What does that mean? Create. You have to learn to create. Because this is how powerful your mind is: you can create anything. So that means every time you go anywhere, even go back to your house, it is re-created every time you go into it.
