If I ask you readers to vote my question up to an eight or higher, am I an opportunist and greedy? If I ask you to check mark my answer to your question, is that unethical? Are these not both examples of reality creation in action? Am I not simply creating my own reality by asking for the reality I want? Why should I limit myself? Is reality creation only to be used for "good"? And who is going to define what that means? Is there such a thing as "bad" reality creation? Says who?
Ethics and morality are deeply ingrained in the beliefs and emotions of human beings. Where do these "rules" or "laws" come from? Are they universal? Should they be? If we are going to be intentionally involved in creating our own reality, should there be any self-imposed limits on the reality we choose?

Hmmm. First, your assuming that ethical and morals are limitations. Are they? Second, If there is an ultimate pure ethic and pure morals, then we as humans are inclined to aspire to that perfection. Therefore, we are only as ethical and moral as our development to that perfection. We are only as ethical and moral of that perfection that we can perceive it to be regardless of what it truly is. There are those who establish higher and better morals, like Lincoln abolishing slavery. Slavery at one time being ok, ethical and moral and now it's perceived not to be. All activities should be considered in an ethical and moral standard. It shows, in part, our spiritual development.

Ethics and morality, good and evil, allowed and fordidden are rules created by human beings. they are part of the reality that we have created for ourselves. they were not created by nature, they don't exist outside our own minds. but as the creators of these rules, we should obey them. or .. we pay the consequences. because they are not just rules, they are beliefs as well. they are part of our experience, our reality .. and have ''natural'' effects on our lives. they can be changed, but this is not an easy thing to do. because you would need to rebuild the human experience that created the need for making these rules. of course, you leave the crowds and play alone according to your own rules. but this also would not just pass without penalty and price that you must pay to enjoy this freedom. and it's always a very high price.

As I understand it, in the purest senses of the words, ethics and morals are goals rather than constraints. The only limit is from where we create our reality. We can create any reality, but that which is created with love from a heart connected to God brings the most desired results. Other results lack if they come from a place of lack.

+1 for "ethics and morals are goals rather than constraints."

Yes, that would be unethical and it may or may not obtain your goal you wanted. No, there are no limits on your reality creation per sa but you are duty mind to your own moral codes and ethics.
You are an good person or an bad person according to your moral standards and ethics. Again remember that free will comes into play which is you are free to choice right or wrong good or bad. But in the same since you must look at the whole picture of cause and effect.
Now does it changes from time to times? Yes, it does. As you grow,learn and mature in wisdom from God than you want allow yourself to do really bad things. But this is where the ethics come in do you believe this would be bad if you ask people to do this? That again is up to your perceptions of your reality you want to create.

As human, we are all supposed to be free to do what we want to be or have. Besides there is no such thing as good or bad to anything. It is only us humans who are setting standards. If reality creation be one of the steps in attaining spiritual awakening, why then should we limit ourselves to such standards?

Because without those standards, chaos results.

And what would result from the chaos?

Are you willing to accept the risk that asking readers to vote your question up to an eight or higher might brand you as an opportunist?
Why do you stop at traffic lights? Is it because you are forced to follow a rule or because you want to be safe? Do you feel your freedom is constrained because you have to stop at traffic lights, or do you feel that it contributes to your safety and freedom on the roads because it allows traffic to flow in a coordinated, orderly fashion and provides the ability for you and your fellow drivers to peacefully coexist?
What are the risks involved if you decide you don't want to follow the rules? Can you get a ticket and a fine? Could you be possibly be injured or even lose your life? What if you hurt somebody else? Have you taken away some of their freedom?
