Throwing Open the Doors of Perception
The gift of choice lies in the freedom to change at any moment our beliefs and behaviors. The gap between stimulus and response is potential — it’s where choice is made. It’s been estimated that we are using much less than 10% of potential; so, we have a great playing field available!
To exist is to change, to change is to mature, to mature is to go on creating oneself endlessly.
Once a limitation comes into conscious awareness then we have choice and life is about choice — not the conditional or traditional concepts derived from past experience, parents, culture or ancestry. There is always much more potential whether we are pauper or prince, moderate or activist, drop-out or scholar, couch potato or athlete, etc. The key is translating this knowledge into practical everyday actions that will enliven and enrich our body, mind and spirit.
- Are your thoughts, beliefs, communications, and behaviors life enhancing?
- Are you an intrigued observer and bold participant in life?
- Or, are you fulfilling the projections, prognoses and prophecies of other people?
Life is going to have moments of conflict, crisis and trauma where our needs are not being met. A small paradigm shift has the ripple effect of producing many positive and far reaching results; and, by simply acknowledging that you are a participant in this world in every situation whether active or passive as all things happen through you NOT to you is truly liberating!
As we gather experience and organize knowledge to consciously change — we have tapped into the power of wisdom. Now using this knowledge, experience and wisdom to benefit others embodies the power of compassion and the essence of love. We are all Jewels in the Lotus and as we recognize and remember our divine source we then become the Alchemist of our own potential.
