THE POWER OF BEING

We arrive in this space in so many different guises, based on so many different experiences, throughout so many different phases of growth, immersed in so many different truths, tribes, testimonies, and tongues that we forget that just as much as we are different, we are the same.

We are born. We covet. We doubt. We sin. We fall. We fear. We wander. We desire. We complain. We regress.  We bless. We imagine. We love. We die. As time evolves, we realize that we are much more than the breath of creation.  Each one of us is a gift.

We yearn to see the universe’s face.  We hope it is different than our own.  But we see shapes, forms and different expressions of our own imperfections staring back at us. At some point, if we are fortunate, we know that we are not just here for ourselves.

The ultimate demonstration of our existence transcends material things or self-centered adoration.  Our accomplishments are merely guideposts, benchmarks to show us the ultimate gift: we are here to give, and by so giving−to serve, and by so serving−to be our best.

There are books but no manuals of how to properly perform the operation of inclusion, how to locate the seat of the problem, extinguish it, coordinate departure, and return for debriefing in a successful operation.  The challenges that we face to be more inclusive will not change overnight, nor can they be surmised in literature or study. Instead, we must bring all of ourselves – not based on the mere accomplishment of initiatives but also on the fundamental commitment to lead and exemplify for all the need to accept, respect and embrace the value of others.  This field will only be enhanced by the insight that each leader brings from their unique background, which provides them with the ability to envision, create and restore the unlimited arsenal that we need to honor our differences and celebrate the powerful gifts that each and every one of us brings to the table.

Our gifts are so precious and yet so tenuous they slide from our fingertips in a breath’s notice. We thought we were here for a neatly categorized occupation or the job we sought after college or what generations of family members did until we finally realize deep in our souls that we are here to serve a greater purpose.

Our callings have nothing to do with profession, paycheck or retirement.  Our various roles, which include but are in no way limited to glass maker, sanitation worker, electrician, carpenter,  plumber,  teacher, lawyer, clergy, fire prevention, engineer, architect, firefighter, emergency medical technician,  paramedic, nurse, doctor, soldier or caretaker, police officer, judge, or president is one of the many ways we clothe our soul’s true calling to be present for others.

No matter how much more we want, we eventually open our eyes and see that there is power in every single manner that each one of us expresses ourselves. Finding power within is the only way to respect the value of the power in others. Power is not indicative of how we rule, govern or assert strength over someone else, but how we find the space, time and commitment to demonstrate our own gifts and talents. The only way we can express our power is by being who we really are, by honoring our authentic selves.

Someone once encouraged me to adopt the belief that we are “one race.”   We are. And being able to express every aspect of our race in the unique manner that we as individuals experience and contribute to life is our true gift. The Ubuntu saying is “I am because you are.” This not only celebrates us as part of the team but gives us the true power of being one with others because we are able to be who we are.

If tradition attempts to limit us, it becomes a false idol and re-names itself “the past.” Everything around us teaches us that we cannot remain in the past any more than we can remain in a burning building.  Lot’s wife merely looked back at the past, and she could move no further.  We bring with us the power of the past being us as step into a future that defies the space of convention, one that can walk the water of new faith and courage without fear.

Where tradition excluded others, its toxic energy requires that it be cleansed, purged like any other substance that would kill. Exclusion is blindness. We cannot see what we refuse to accept as meaningful, important or real.

Where tradition welcomes who we are and uplifts our contributions, we honor it as the deliverer of all change and transformation.

The cocoon of conforming has covered us for so long that only a few of us dare emerge.  Yet, more often than not when we do, everyone admires the shapes, contexts and contours of the gifts and talents that only we can give to the universe.

Being there for others is an important way to show up for ourselves.

OUR HUNGER AND THIRST IS FOR THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF ABSOLUTE GOOD

Matthew 5:6 says “Blessed are they that hunger and thirst after righteousness for they shall be filled.”

We know that Jesus is not talking about food – unless it is manna – the food of life that never stops feeding us – that always provides what we need.

We know that we are not talking about drink unless we are talking about living water – the water that we may drink of and never thirst again.
We know that we are not talking about something or someone who is self-righteous because a consciousness that only sees its own greatness in the flesh fails to realize the pure power of God.

In his book Discover the Power Within, Eric Butterworth says righteousness means “right thinking.”  He says it would be so much easier to go through the motions – to just go to church and praise God and sing in the choir and serve as an usher – and never change our minds or transform our consciousness to realize the power, the true power that God has given us to think, do and be righteousness.

We have to become immersed in our desire to do the good that God calls us to do, so immersed that we are completely connected with Spirit – so connected that we don’t sweat the small stuff because we are focused on the big stuff.

We can be so caught up in our daily routine – the small stuff that we forget to look to the hills; we forget to rise above; we forget that we were aiming for something greater – so much greater than what we are doing and feeling and even fearing.  We forget that God is in charge and God will work out the details in perfect divine order when we are focused, when we have clarity – when we let go and let God – FOR THEY – WE SHALL BE FILLED.
Paul said that we shall be transformed by the renewal of our minds – through right thinking.  Right or Positive thinking is part of the unlimited power of God.

Emmett Fox says that if our right thinking is clouded – if we are not being transformed or are progressing as fast as we would like, we must do a few things:

  1. Hold onto only harmonious thoughts
  2. Do not dwell on mistakes or mis-haps
  3. Do not worry about how long it takes
  4. Claim the presence of God within us
  5. Claim wisdom, claim power, claim wealth
  6. Stop continuing bad habits
  7. Forgive and let go
  8. Release hatred and contempt
  9. Release poison and jealousy
  10. Entertain the possibility of something different
    If we take one step, God will take two.

When we hunger and thirst – the mere activity stirs up the power of God and fulfills the filling process of satisfying our needs.

Our greatest power is always here.

We only fail to realize it when we generate fear because fear will only help create fear.   What are we creating for ourselves?

So often we just go through the motions.  We stop.  We forget. We deny ourselves.  We disown the God in us.  We try to prevent ourselves from moving forward.  We even blame it on age.  (There is no gene for aging; we made that up!)
Let’s stop drawing to ourselves the things that we fear we must suffer and start creating for ourselves to joy that God intends us to create as us.

We never had to leave the Garden of Eden – never.  We left because of our desire to punish ourselves – and we stay out because of our continued desire to be unworthy, to be sinners.

We sin when fail to realize God the only power that there is inside of us.
God is bigger than the Republicans.  God is greater than any government .  God is more powerful than the world.  God is not limited by the polls or governed by the economy.

God is the full expression of absolute good through every aspect of our being.

WHEN THE SERVANT BECOMES THE MASTER – Part 8 – Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself

We also discussed The Ultimate Secret to Getting Absolutely Everything You Want by Michael Hernacki, which says in order to accomplish something, you must be willing to do whatever it takes to accomplish it. When you form an intention and keep fast to it, you will eventually achieve the results you want.  An open mind is receptive to the possible, the untried, the unproven. It doesn’t make judgments. It doesn’t make excuses for why things cannot be. It doesn’t refuse what is asked of it, no matter how illogical the request may seem. You only two things: 1. A clear idea of what you want (an objective).  It’s helpful to write down what you want in words that are as specific as you can make them. 2. Commitment. This, like willingness, is an attitude, a feeling of confidence that you’ll continue to pursue what you want, no matter what happens, a firm belief that what you want is so desirable and so important to you that, in the end, it will be worth doing whatever you must do to get it.

CHANGE YOUR MIND BY BEING GREATER THAN TIME, SPACE AND BODY – Part 4 – Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself

TO LISTEN TO PART 4 OF THE STUDY GROUP, CLICK HERE

This audio tape is an excerpt from the studied chapter “OVERCOMING YOUR ENVIRONMENTbreaking-the-habit-of-being-yourself,” from the book Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself,  by Joe Dispenza, at pp. 33-43, which you can purchase on Amazon.  We are also excerpting the music of Peter Kater and R. Carlos Nakai: “If Men Were at Peace” and “Call to Enchantment,” which can be purchased on i-Tunes.

“Most people focus on three things in life: their environment, their bodies, and time. They don’t just focus on those three elements, they think equal to them. But to break the habit of being yourself, you have to think greater than the circumstances of your life, be greater than the feelings that you have memorized in your body, and live in a new line of time. If you want to change, you must have in your thoughts an idealized self—a model that you can emulate, which is different from, and better than, the ‘you’ that exists today in your particular environment, body, and time.” Dispenza, Joe. Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself.
