Power, Evolution, And Personal Responsibility
I often write about the
personal power that every one of us has access to. Because we are God manifested
in the human body, our power is limitless, yet we seldom demonstrate that power
- why is that?
The power that we are is really controlled by personal
responsibility and our own evolution. The more responsible we become for our
individualized existences the more we evolve and the greater access we have to
our power to create and manifest all that we desire.
There are safety protocols built into our being which do not allow
access to our power until we are ready to use it beneficially. It has been
clearly demonstrated over time what happens to individuals who have greater
access to their own power. They will eventually destroy themselves, drunken and
disillusioned on a high that leads nowhere. On an uncontrollable quest to reach
the top, they forget that the top only leads down. Of course we all determine
what the top is. If we are earth bond by our limited thinking then all the extra
power takes us to the end much faster.
The power of the creator is not limited to this planet; our power
is boundless. So if we are thinking about racing a Ferrari in a shopping mall
parking lot, it can have only dire consequences. Maturity and responsibility are
essential ingredients in using power. Of the six billion people on earth, there
are very few who will even realize a minuscule experience of their own power.
Because we think as a physical being and ignore the greater part of
who we are, we ignore spirit or at best we pass this awareness and its
consequences off to religion. Because humanity is inherently aware of this
aspect of self and its awesome ramifications, he limits himself spiritually, out
of fear. It may be likened to having a nuclear bomb in your basement that is
large enough to destroy the entire world - what do you do with it? The
responsibility for having this devise would be overwhelming for most of us. So
instead of creating new worlds, we settle for just trying to survive in this one
and we are terrified of our own power and what we are capable of.
Humanity is long overdue for change. It absolutely blows me away to
know that only a 100 years ago, we were using horse drawn carts, kerosene
lanterns, and telegraph. Considering that there is evidence to show that man has
been on this planet for more than a million years; why are we so slow? There is
also evidence to show that technology destroyed him at least three times. How
much technology does he need to evolve on this very small planet? The fact is
that man has demonstrated over the millennia that he needs very little
technology to survive and proliferate. It is because most of the technology that
we develop worldwide is for the military. Is this the mark of a highly developed
species? The potential for human growth is overwhelming when one stops to think
about it. All of us have many different powers yet undeveloped that can be used
for the benefit of man rather than its destruction. But we are not developing
them. In fact there are many who deny they even exist in spite of the evidence
to the contrary.
What we don't understand, we fear or deny and what we deny can
never be. We must accept the probability of any event before we can begin to
develop or create it. Mankind has clearly shown that he has the ability to reach
beyond his present conditions and create what he dreams of. But he still creates
within the limitations of his very small world and within a philosophy of
separation from his enormous personal power and what he truly is.
The laws by which he lives are based in primitive faiths and
religions that are designed to limit him physically and spiritually. This
limitation only benefits those who would keep him limited and dependent, and
that is not the true nature of man. Although humanity tries to find order, he
also finds way to escape from it, because that is also his nature.
It is now time for humanity to look to the individual to develop
his/her own power. It is also time for man to see its differences as
opportunities to evolve into something new and better. Assimilation only works
for those who would assimilate and control. Diversification of thought and
opinion and the ability to make them work will lead man out of the limited box
he now finds himself in. Each new generation brings new opportunities to move
from our comfort zones.
Although we may not feel comfortable with new ideas, there are
those who do not feel comfortable with the old ones. It is within the blending
of both that a new mix begins to evolve and it slowly moves us forward; and this
appears to be how it works. But it is within the awareness of this process that
we can start to move forward without the fear of loosing or being lost. It is
also within the experience of the process that we will find the greatest
pleasure, security and satisfaction.
This whole process will create better results when we live within
the knowledge of the potential of our personal power to create what we desire
and change what we do not. We will have access to greater power when we first
acknowledge that we do not need anyone's permission to use it and we do not need
to fear it. We are responsible for only one life and we are stewards of the rest
because it works in our best interest to be. It is our personal responsibility
to offer our own unique perspective to others and to protect theirs because a
single idea is limited and dies easily.
It is your responsibility to develop yourself into the best you can
be, and share your wisdom and experience so that others will benefit; so that
you will benefit from their wisdom and experience. This not only benefits the
body but also the spirit, because it is the nature of the spirit to experience
all things physical. It is how it defines and knows itself through you. In the
world of the absolute, there is only a single experience and that cannot be
experienced without the experience of everything else.
Our only purpose for being here is to make things up and experience
them. Therefore a single experience is death for the spirit and for the physical
body. Develop the mind, the body and use your power to create something new and
worthy of the choice you made to experience the physical world. To develop
oneself spiritually, it does not mean that you do it religiously. Religion is a
box and only a step in spiritual awareness, not the other way around. You do not
develop yourself religiously to become spiritual. You are already spiritual by
nature - that is who and what you are. Everything that you do is spiritual. It
is within the knowledge of your true nature that you must be responsible,
powerful, and evolve to the next level of awareness and experience. You must
move beyond your five senses - that is the future of humanity. The five senses
gave man a foothold in the physical world, but it is his other senses that will
take him from his primitive state. If man is to stop walking on his knuckles and
move towards the fire, he must break away from his limiting thoughts and those
who would keep him there. It is a bright new future that those of the past and
present, will come back to experience more than once.
The truth is; you are creating your future now, and you will return
to experience it. Imagine yourself moving to the top of the mountain, and that
is where you will find yourself.
