Transcend the Mundane, the first of the Newcreator’s three superpowers (the others being Create the New and Enrich the World) is a synthesis of the creative powers named Openness, Intent and Devotion.
I understand that matter, feelings and thoughts belong to the world of opposites ¹. If we become aware of how they act in us, we transcend these 3 levels of the material world and embark on the way to the 4th level ². In the same way, LIGHT ³ is then able to flood down from above, uniting the 3 lower levels with its radiance.
Lili Strausz, Talking with Angels, Dialogue 32
1. The world of opposites is mundane world.
2. The fourth level corresponds with Intent.
3. Light is similar in meaning to the G-field.
Activation of Transcend the Mundane is a prerequisite for the activation of the other superpowers: Enrich the World and Create the New.
We have seen that there are only two parts of your mind. One is ruled by the ego, and is made up of illusions. The other is the home of the Holy Spirit, where truth abides.

Receptivity means being open to life in all its glory, and being ready to receive to the G-field that streams into the manifest from the unmanifest through the gap in time (view graphic | read more here), enabling us to foresee possibilities for world enrichment.
Being open and receptive demands faith.
For the Newcreator, faith does not mean belief in God. Rather, it means “a critical but curious mind’s readiness to adopt a reality model (even if provisionally) for which there is less than absolute, empirical proof”. (Credit: Jay B. Gaskill.)
My brain is only a receiver. In the Universe there is a core from which we obtain knowledge, strength and inspiration. I have not penetrated into the secrets of this core, but I know that it exists.
Without faith, Transcend the Mundane cannot be activated, because the rational mind will reject the idea of enriching the world through unconditional service, and it will refuse to consider the possibility that the G-field exists.
Newcreators must put logic on hold, quieten negative self-talk, silence the inner critic, set aside scepticism and remain open to the unknown, the unexplainable and the possibility of infinite possibility.
It is an altruistic orientation, a determination to transcend the mundane, create the new and enrich the world through unconditional service, utilising one’s value generation potential to the full for the benefit of others.
Intent unites the unmanifest realm, the place of infinite possibility, with the manifest realm, where possibilities become reality.

Intent […] is, quite simply, the overlap point of vision and creation.

Devotion is not an abstract concept. Rather, it is a palpable demonstration of the Newcreator’s wholehearted commitment to enriching the world with value, meaning and joy through unconditional service.
You have to let the muse know that you’re serious.

It reflects the Newcreator’s love of life and the natural world of which he or she is part.
Devotion enables the Newcreator to make good use of society’s infrastructure, institutions and resources for the purpose of human advancement and world enrichment.
Love for the warrior is also the unconditional affection that we cultivate for this marvellous earth.

“One can say that the nagual accounts for creativity,” [Don Juan] finally said and looked at me piercingly. “The nagual is the only part of us that can create.”
He remained quiet, looking at me. I felt he was definitely leading me into an area I had wished he would elucidate further. He had said that the tonal did not create anything, but only witnessed and assessed. I asked how he explained the fact that we construct superb structures and machines.
“That’s not creativity,” he said. “That’s only molding.”

… reason gets a C when it comes to the inner world, because the rational mind doesn’t even know where an idea comes from, much less the source of creativity, insight, love, beauty, imagination, and many other aspects of mind. Consciousness cannot be explained objectively, despite the hopes and claims of neuroscience. The brain functions like a radio, delivering the music of the mind, as it were.”
Reason is, and ought only to be the slave of the passions, and can never pretend to any other office than to serve and obey them.
Once that occurred is when I finally understood that being a seer is really nothing more than being permanently outside the belief systems that otherwise hold the world together. Or, more precisely, the belief systems that create what is commonly called the foreign installation 1 — the predominant series of beliefs and practices that influence, guide and ultimately control human behavior. The end result of being outside the box is that the world and everything in it becomes essentially transparent. That isn’t to say I can tell you the winning lottery numbers or the precise date on which the collapse of civilization as we know it will occur. What it does mean is that it becomes possible to discern shit from shinola, truth from lies, seekers from pretenders, and on down the line.
1. Foreign Installation: “If it can be perceived that the consensual reality possesses a rudimentary ‘hive mind’, it then becomes possible to see that this hive mind is predatory in nature, in that it invades and usurps the individual unless the individual has mastered extreme awareness. In other words we may be “taken over” by the consensual hive, whose primary agenda is to preserve its static status quo. Other – more extreme – definitions have been offered for the predatory mind, and may in fact, have truth as well.”

What if instead of taming people, we trained them to be more skillful at being wild?

The first attention basically consists of everything that ordinary man considers it means to be human. It is the reality that has been constructed and developed in order to deal with the daily world and encompasses an awareness restricted to the physical body.

We are living in a society which is a temple dedicated to the rational man.
Ram Dass, Be Here Now
The problems in the world stem from the difference between how we think and how the world works.
As the Toltecs tell us, true creativity does not belong to the tonal. It springs from the incomprehensible nagual.
Tomas, Creative Victory
The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honours the servant and has forgotten the gift.

There seems to be an endless stream of thought leaders and consultants who claim to have engineered a more “scientific” approach to business. Yet they, just like the positivists, always seem to fall short. Unfortunately, the real world defies logic.
Greg Satell, Why Business Defies Logic
Anyone who values truth should stop worshipping reason.
Seeing enables warriors to understand that decisions really don’t belong to the world of the tonal. Human beings don’t control their choices in the way the description of the world trains them to believe they do. Decisions belong to the nagual, where the concepts of control and reason have no meaning. As human beings who walk the earth, we choose and yet we do not choose. This is another fundamental contradiction of the warrior’s path of knowledge.
