I am sure we have all come across people who like their privacy and are quite happy to be on their own most of the time doing things they enjoy in life.

But there are other people who would much rather to be in the company of friends, family, partners or even be out and about meeting new people. They enjoy life more when they are in the company of others.

My question is in terms of reality creation and manifestation, what are the benefits of creating alone or with others?

I think if you investigate the lives of those who prefer to be alone, there will be some reason they have become that way - they didn't naturally start off that way as children. I've never met a child who didn't enjoy the company of others in some way.

Personally, I enjoy my privacy now as a reaction to being in the "public spotlight" for a while (don't ask!) and not enjoying it.

I would say that, while you can create alone, your creations would have limited value or meaning for you if others were not involved in some way...even solitary-by-nature (now) people like me still enjoy interacting with others through the relatively anonymous medium of the internet.

From the Master Key System, Part 18

Think for a moment, what would a man be if he were not a husband, father, or brother, if he were not interested in the social, economical, political or religious world. He would be nothing but an abstract theoretical ego. He exists, therefore, only in his relation to the whole, in his relation to other men, in his relation to society. This relation constitutes his environment and in no other way.

It is evident, therefore, that the individual is simply the differentiation of the one Universal Mind "which lighteth every man that cometh into the world," and his so-called individuality or personality consists of nothing but the manner in which he relates with the whole.

We are social creatures. All other things being equal, it is better to experience the creation of something together than it is to do it all by yourself.

We are all part of the whole, anyway. Can't you see a part of yourself in your neighbor? And if you can see that part of yourself in him, can you grasp his hand in yours and say, "I hear you, I can relate"?

I was a loner for a long time until I met my wife. She taught me how to come out into the world, and enjoy the company of other people.

That said, there are some things that must be done in solitude, such as meditation and practicing a musical instrument. You sharpen your tools, and then you go out into the world and work together with others using those tools.

My view is different from Vesuvius's. Reality creation is better done solo as it minimises the chance of conflicting desires and ideas that sometimes we ourselves are unaware of.

This is also the reason why it is usually advised that we do not tell others about what we are trying to do (in terms of reality creation). Even our loved ones, who are our best supporters, may have their own inner doubts and subconscious intents that may conflict with what we are trying to do. Even if they are outwardly very supportive, if they harbour any doubts about the possibility of you achieving it, it would dampen the effects of your reality creation efforts.

For instance, most of us would have the experience of, say, encouraging a friend who's really enthusiastic about singing, but secretly we may have limiting beliefs like "oh well, nobody from our town is ever going to make it to the American Idol finals". We have no ill intentions, but the fact that we have such beliefs while we think about our friend's ambitions may create a resisting force that works against him.

You can do the mental work yourself, but if what you intend to manifest is anything substantial (and you're not engaging in "magical thinking"), then eventually you are going to need to attract the help of others.

Hmm. What is the difference between "magical thinking" and "manifesting"?

(19 Nov '09, 03:46) Pat W

The difference between magical thinking and manifesting is specifically addressed in Psi-Tek. It says: "The Master Key teaches the use of Mind Power, true Mind Power, not any of the substitutes and perversions; it has nothing to do with Hypnotism, Magic or any of the more or less fascinating deceptions by which many are led to think that something can be had for nothing." http://www.inwardquest.com/questions/1614/how-do-you-remove-all-doubt-so-that-manifestation-can-occur/1637#1637

If you are manifesting or creating something than you will probably do it better alone. But if you decide to manifest or create something and you all are of like mines than you all can create together but I believe it will lead to conflicting manifesting for it is hard enough to manifest alone controling your own thoughts let alone someone elses.

Now, if you have already manifested in the physical world or in your reality an it is now into reality than you can let others help you the part that is already reality but not in the manifesting part. Unless you all have an good understanding with each other and what you all want to achieve and how doubt can and will hinder you and how gratitude or appreciation plays an important part.

We must say thank you to Jesus and God in my opinion.

True there are some people that like being around people more and there are some people who like being more alone it is an personal preference and that is OK and each to their own preference.

I really enjoy being alone, but I really enjoy being with other people, too. I think our approach to reality creation needs both elements, too. If we are inclined one way or the other, we will probably do more on our own, or more in a group, but that's okay. Whatever works. Whatever you're comfortable with.

The solo work is important because that's how we experience our reality.. as an individual. Even where the Universal Mind is concerned, the individual must choose how to use the knowledge, inspiration and influence derived from that source. There is also the concept of ownership to consider. People are more apt to take responsibility and follow through on something when they feel a sense of ownership for it.

The obvious benefits of a group (or various contacts with other individuals) is that there are more creative ideas and solutions to choose from. Napoleon Hill puts a lot of emphasis on Mastermind Groups who gather for mutual support, instruction and problem solving.

I don't think it's a question of one approach being better than the other, I think it's a question of finding the right blend of both to suit your personality and needs.
