Creative Stuff On The Inside Refrigerator Door Metaphors
Unity Consciousness #561


One of the most overlooked opportunities to spark and stimulate creativity is the stuff on the inside refrigerator door.
This is usually an assortment of condiments encased in plastic and glass that hangs around longer than anything else. With just a little bit of rethinking, we can set these items and ourselves free. We will then be able to get a lot more out of the process of looking for something to eat and keep more condiments from passing into the afterlife.

Anytime we find ourselves staring into the refrigerator for several seconds, searching for that something that just isn't there, an opportunity exists to create something else out of something else. This opportunity only lasts as long as our ability to resist the temptation habit of running to the store or ordering delivery food. Using the resources we have available is, of course, what being creative is.

Introduce the classic mixture of ketchup and mustard to a baked or microwaved sweet potato. Fry some cornmeal to go with those few ounces of syrup. Who has not made a meaty spaghetti sauce and jelly sandwich? A boiled egg cut in half and then some juice from pickles or pepper rings poured over the yolk is worth a try.

Whether or not we end up liking the combinations we come up with, at least the stuff on the inside refrigerator door gets used up a little faster and we get some practice using our inherent creative abilities.

It is extremely difficult to “go wrong” or “mess up” by combining foods we already know we like. Most of the time when things don't turn out as we'd like, the problem is not a matter of what we combine. It is usually a matter of balance. An ingredient is used too much or too little. An ingredient is cooked too long, too briefly or at unfavorable temperatures.

Combining bits and pieces of what is, to create what isn't, is the creative process. This is the same creative process that brings all things into existence and maintains their existence.

Deconstructing Combining Metaphors

Somewhere along the way to creativity, we've been taught mixing metaphors is a bad thing. This type of suboptimal Dark Age teaching limits knowledge of self. Mixing metaphors is a basic description of who we are.

Condiments are like wood scraps, pieces of cloth and containers of bolts, screws, washers and buttons. All of these items are simply awaiting our awareness of their part, their whole and their essence. As we unify consciousness, we are awakened to this awaiting awareness. We become more U-rhythmic with the deconstructing, mixing, metamorphosing, and reconstructing of metaphors constantly taking place. This is what creativity is. Creativity and the mixing of metaphors are soup, salad and stir-fry. Each is based on combining the same things expressed differently.

Creation is the mixture of metaphors. As an example, humans are also soups, salads and stir-frys of creation. We are a mixture of various atoms, molecules and elements – the same things expressed differently. Since we are the creative result of the Creator's creative process, we are all creative because everything we are made of is creative. Our neter nature is creative. This is science. This is why we are able to combine things in creative ways, even when it comes to the stuff on the inside refrigerator door.

Just to be clear, the Creator is a metaphor mixer. Every metaphor humans use or make is a mixed metaphor. Every thing the Creator creates is a mixed metaphor. Everything humans create is a mixed metaphor. There is no such thing as an unmixed metaphor. Because every single thing that exists is a combination of multiple things, each time we compare two things, we are comparing multiple things. We are mixing metaphors. Even when we consider a single thing by itself, we are contemplating a mixed metaphor. Every single thing is a micro and macro metaphor. This is why the metaphor, as above, so below, as within, so without, holds true. The very act of comparing self to self at any two points in time is comparing metaphors. Comparing the physical, spiritual, mental and emotional is comparing metaphors.

Metaphors are pre-mixed by the Creator.

A metaphor is the form that existed before Creation. A metaphor is a metaform, a metaformation, a metaformulation. This form is spirit. Everything is a form of spirit which is why everything is everything and everything is metaphor, including the creative stuff on the inside refrigerator door.
