Personal Power

“Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it.”

– Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

 

I’ve come to learn, in my quest for a more spiritual life, that we as humans are very powerful. It’s no wonder, we are sparks of God. We are part of the one consciousness. Our bodies are vehicles for this consciousness, little sparks of God that have gone out into the universe to explore, to experience, to grow and learn, temper our souls, and work our way back to God. Part of God? Really? Kind of an arrogant way of thinking right? Well, here’s what author and professor of literature Joseph Campbell has to say about it – “You see, there are two ways of thinking ‘I am God.’ If you think, ‘I, here in my physical presence and in my temporal character, am God,’ then you are mad and have short-circuited the experience. You are God, not in your ego, but in your deepest being, where you are at one with the non dual transcendent.”

Heady stuff right? That we are vehicles for consciousness has been proven. Studies at the University of Virginia School of Medicine have found that the brain does not create consciousness as we’re used to thinking, but it is a receiver of consciousness, so that makes us very powerful indeed. We receive the same consciousness that created the universe; we create our own universe. We are not our body, we are God.

Once I began to understand this, I saw that I am powerful enough to accomplish my dreams and live my highest purpose. Now, I can’t go out and perform miracles. Yet, ha ha. I have a lot of work to do in this area. I have to unlearn everything that’s been programed into my brain since I was born. It’s all in what we believe. We create our reality, but really, our reality was created for us by first, our parents, then teachers and others that interacted with us. We were taught that we can’t do miracles, that this or that is the way life is. It’s hard, but we must unlearn the old programs and remember that we are Gods. Like sparks from a forest fire, drifting off to start our own fires, and grow. We can grow, thrive, and soar, out into the universe. Remember who you are – Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.

 

May you always be

Healthy, Happy

Safe and Comfortable
