We human beings are absolutely incredible beings. The potential is unfathomable. We are not speaking about those geniuses we sometimes read about in a newspaper, like a 8 year old boy with an IQ of over 200 who graduated from university already; we are speaking about you and me.
Every day we are challenged to make dozens of conscious and thousands of unconscious choices. And each choice contributes to the shape our life takes, some more and some less. This power to make conscious choices is phenomenal and our direct access to shape and create our lives from vision, from inspiration, from greatness.
Or not. And that’s the next fascinating thing about us human beings: we are given free will, meaning we are given the power to choose whatever we want. No one is able to limit our ability to choose. We and we alone are the masters of our power to choose. But then, why are so many of us not living by creation but reaction; not living by vision but by fear; not demonstrating our potential but hiding in the shadows?
The answer is: ignorance. We don’t know who we actually are as a human being; we know who we are as a person, but not what kind of being we really are. If we knew that, really knew that, we’d make different choices which lead to different actions which lead to different results and therefore a different life.
This KNOWING of who we really as a human being is the only thing that really matters; without it we don’t know how to love and sustain loving relationships, we don’t know how to shine and share our light, we don’t know what the word really is and therefore maintain within the limitations of the global superstitions that tell us we are limited.
There is something in YOU that cannot die, that consistently pokes you, that is 24/7 busy waving at you through all possible means. Let’s call that “your LIGHT”. It speaks to you as that delicate very silent voice, it pokes you through symptoms in your body that you should read, it visits you in your dreams, it sends you massive wake up calls by what you call “destiny” (mostly misinterpreted as ‘good luck’ or ‘bad luck’). The challenge is to READ all of that and UNDERSTAND it, so one can make one’s choices in congruency with one’s LIGHT.
It sounds so obvious! But why is it then so difficult?
The answer is: fear. Almost all choices a human being makes every day, every week, every month, every year is based on fear, not on light. Only sometimes it is wise to listen to fear and run; sometimes; very very sometimes! We are not hounded by tigers anymore.
Did you ever notice that we never need to ask “what would fear do?” It is our daily way of life. Few people occasionally ask “what would my light do?” And then the question is whether one has the courage to act on the answer.
But while all this is happening 24/7, our LIGHT keeps poking us from within. Sometimes we hear it and call it conscience, intuition, will of the heart, etc. But often we don’t act on it. Why? Fear! Our lifestyle has become a way to numb ourselves, so the POKING doesn’t “disturb” us all the time. We don’t want to confront that we slowly die in our jobs, that we suck in our relationships, that we are rookies when it comes to self-love and that we are pathetic when it comes to be a benediction to others and the world. We don’t want to face the inconvenient truth.
And so the POKING continues and our escape from it too. Until…. Yes, until…. WHOOM! Another inconvenient wakeup call. Instead of learning the lesson and now listen to our light, we rather try to fix “the problem” so we can continue in sweet undisturbance.
Converting to the light begins with a decision: “I’ve had it with the shadows!”
This needs to be a cry for freedom, a rebellion against fear and antagonism, on the level of energy one generates when the head was long enough under water….and a bit longer….and even longer….and then, suddenly a power unknown to most people rises from within and THAT is the rise of greatness in you, that’s the awakening of the giant in you, that’s the TURNING POINT.
How hard must destiny work on you for you to GET IT? The cosmic joke and answer is: not at all! You could simply accept that the turning point is YOU. If you do, you’ll see that the door of your prison was always open. And you walk out.
Your light is just a decision away.
