Your Secret Power - Don't You Want to Know
When someone comes to you and wants to tell you about a thing you do not know about, why are you so defensive?
When you go to someone and ask them about a thing you know nothing about, why are you eager to hear everything they say? It is because of fear-not fear about learning something new, but fear of a realization of what we knew as no longer our being. It is the ego fearing for its existence. The ego relies on what it knows to assure itself of its own immortality. When someone tries to teach us something new, there is natural resistance to the information. The ego does not want to replace what it knows as real with something that may invalidate or deny what it has experienced, because it would deny its own awareness of self.
The ego clings to physical things to assure itself of its existence. The ego is reluctant to know of things it has not experienced, the abstract is something it can not hold on to as real. When someone comes to us with information we did not ask for, our arms go up in a posture of defensiveness. And once again it is about fear, we are afraid what we already know will not being able to stand up to the new information. So in other words, what we knew in the past may not be real, or perhaps a lie and it invalidates what we believe to be our good sense of judgment and our very existence.
However, when we seek new information it is a sign the ego has matured and is ready to move into a place of new awareness. The ego has taken charge of its own destiny and is creating it.
From ignorance, the ego does not understand its relationship to all other things. The ego sees itself separate from spirit, and does not realize it has the power, or it is the power that commands the spirit to create. For most, we do not want to know we have the power to command, nor do we want the responsibility for it. What if we realized we could change the world into anything we desired? And in doing so we made a mistake, what if we did it wrong? Could we live with what we have created?
The power to create is within each and every one of us. There are no worlds or circumstances we could not create. In the immature mind, this information could destroy the ego, or even more accurately the ego would destroy itself. With power comes responsibility most of us are not ready or willing to accept. With the knowledge you could fly off the top of a 20 story building-would you take the responsibility to do it. Yet it is in the knowing you can do it, that commands the spirit to make it so.
It is much easier for the ego to accept it would be stupid to jump off a building and expect to fly than to know it could fly. It is a built-in safety protocol that imprisons it and protects it within its limited awareness. Even if one witnesses another doing it, the ego will not believe it. Because it goes so much against what the ego knows as its truth-as how it sees itself-it will even deny what is presented to it in three dimensional colour.
You have the power to create anything you desire. You have the power to create and destroy worlds. You have the power to create life and destroy it. Yet you are limited by your ego who says you do not! It is the ego afraid to let go, afraid to accept new information, afraid of its own vulnerability and presence which controls you. The ego is a whimpering child afraid of the dark, wallowing in its dirty diaper-in control of unlimited massive power.
If I come to you and told you you are God, how would your ego respond to this new information? Would you need proof, or could you accept it? If I told you I am God and everyone around you is God, would your ego fight for equilibrium? Could you even accept there might be a possibility I am correct? How you answer this question will give you an exact estimate of whom and were you are in your spiritual evolution. It will give you an exact indication of your fear level. It will tell you exactly why your life is the way it is now, and how far you have to go. If you see this information as an assault on your intelligence then you are in denial. If you see it as an opportunity, then it is a symbol of higher awareness. It doesn't really matter whether the information is valid or not-it is all about how you perceive it. It is about accepting your power or denying it.
This may just be a dumb little article, but it is also a gift and opportunity to validate what you already know-it was written for a purpose-your purpose, because it is you who is reading it, and it is no accident or coincidence.
