Do you believe that we are conscious co-creators with our Creator who decide what happens in the world?

1. There is no creator God in Buddhism.

2. There are no creators.

"ye dhammā hetuppabhavā tesam hetum Tathāgato āha tesañ ca yo nirodho, evamvādī Mahāsamano." -  Of those phenomena which arise from causes: Those causes have been taught by the Tathāgata (Buddha), And their cessation too.

IMO, there is no creator.

 In childhood, I used to believe in a creator by faith,  then became agnostic (through the study of Sciences), and finally became aware of the Truth (from the Buddhist perspective)- That reality of how we see the world can only be through the experiences of our sense perceptions.  

Looking back I find it interesting to see how and why my perspective has shifted - Building gradual awareness of reality  (becoming more conscious of the nature of reality).  It makes sense to me that one has to be conscious to be happy, and there is a way to realise ultimate truth, through the Dhamma and cultivating wisdom
