Potency and Potent-See
Embracing your highest truth is embracing your limitless Potency, your Potent-See. Seeing the magnificent and graceful power of your essence.
I’ve referred to this quote that is often attributed to Nelson Mandela but is actually from Marianne Williamson’s book A Return to Love (which in turn is based on the book A Course in Miracles) before:
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people will not feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone and as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
Reminders of this quote came to me many times in the lead up to Self Realisation and it’s worthy of reflection, meditation and exploration. There are deep pointers to truth in it.
It kept me looking ever more deeply at the highest possible truth, the moments of doubt, the letting go of stuff that was not mine, the opening to the heart’s calling.
Take those first three sentences. Who could be the one that is frightened here? Is it really you? Is it your highest truth to have fear anyway?
When you look at these questions, particularly the last one, noticing the message from your heart that is emerging right now you will see that it makes no sense whatsoever that in your highest truth you would be fearful.
With this knowing you can readily see that the one who is frightened is ego. The conditioned and illusory small version of yourself that you have created and believed in.
With this belief you have made yourself afraid of the experience of life itself.
I have news for you! You are LIFE. Life experiencing itSELF in, through and as YOU.
See NOW what your heart has to say about that.
Ego is built on beliefs (see: The Emotional Roller Coaster). Beliefs that keep you small and give you the experience of fear.
Because of YOU the Universe is complete.
Pause and take that in. You, despite ego’s attempts, cannot be separate from the Universe. You are intrinsic to it. A child of it as Marianne’s quote says (See: We are children of the Ocean). Why would such a Universe want to keep you small? What purpose would that serve? Put this way, it doesn’t make any sense does it?
Yet, most people go around their whole lives carrying around varying degrees of feeling unworthy, vulnerable, fearful, ashamed and a whole host of other emotions that will make you feel contracted.
What if you were to look at life in a new way. That you are LIFE experiencing LIFE. Exploring your magnificence, your beauty your Grace, your Love. That you were not in fact separate from LIFE or anyone else but one with it in a divine union. A cosmic play.
Does that sound more inviting? More truthful. More resonant?
Your heart knows the answer to this question. Look now and see.
See your Potency. Your Potent-See.
Potent means powerful, filled with creative potential. That is your true Potent-See.
Yet even the most apparently outwardly successful people on the planet suffer. Have private fears. Hold on to smallness. Have you noticed this even in say Pop stars or Film Stars you may love? Unless the Realisation of the Self has occurred the identified life as ego – the life is suffering scenario the Buddha spoke of is what is lived. More money and outward success will not take it away.
The Realisation of the SELF will.
Yet the Buddha’s invitation is this. You too can realise the SELF, experience Enlightenment in other words. Why else would he spread his message?
Let’s bust a myth about Enlightenment. It is not for the ‘special few’ it IS available to ALL and available NOW. It IS, in truth, your natural essence. Englightened. The invitation of LIFE and you are LIFE is to remember who you really are. Not a goal to be achieved but something to be remembered or realised. Self Realisation.
This is your true Potent-See. The seeing and experiencing of truth:
Does this not give life a more truthful feel, a more uplifting feel?
Life is not about being born, growing up, being educated, earning a living if you can, having a partner, growing into old age and suffering all along the way and then dying.
It IS Infinitely greater than this.
Self Realisation IS Life’s Greatest Gift unto itSELF. It IS the greatest service you can offer unto the world.
For as Marianne’s quote says:
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone and as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
Our presence automatically liberates others! What a way to live. What an invitation to your highest truth.
This presence IS your divine truth. It is referred to on this site as Infinite Silence and YOU are it.
Now that is Potency – Potent-SEE.
What will you choose?
