Your Potential

Love is the source of all that ever was, is, or will be and it is found within you. From the smallest seed to the most distant star they are one and the same. The same seed that grew the stars grew you, your potential has already been established, you only have to accept it.

Dreams belong to those who have the courage to be dreamers…

Sometimes that dream that dwells deep within you just needs a dreamer who has the courage to believe that a way can be made. Allow your dreams to shape your life, allow your dreams the attention that they deserve.

Also remember, you don’t need anyone’s permission to dream and there is no dream too big, there is no dream that is out of reach and there is no dream that you should ever lay down because of fear. The only thing you should ever fear in relation to your dreams is that you may lack the courage to pursue them.

Your Inherent “Birthright” or “Wrong”?

I have heard it quoted more times than I can recall and I have quoted it myself, it is the reference to an “inherent birthright”. The quote itself seems very innocent and even justifiable; we all have an inherent birthright even though verbalizing it can come across as a little selfish and demanding at times. Perhaps the term could be modified to a “birth blessing” rather than a birthright as the more I think about it the more I can see that what we perceive to be our rights could be more accurately referred to as privileges bestowed upon us or blessings to be grateful for rather than something we seek to demand as a birthright.

Another thing I have come to understand is that if we want to adopt the term “birthright” then we also need to clearly be aware of the “inherent birth responsibilities” that are attached to anything that we think we are inheriting through our arrival here on the earth. With the understanding that we inherit a space on the earth should also come the understanding that we are responsible for the earth we occupy during our time here, we can never own the earth any more than someone can own the sparkle on the water.

The culture of the western world today is to demand and consume without any thought or concern for the environment or fellow humans, either those here now or the generations to come. I know for me, the next time I am tempted to claim my “birthright” I will be more mindful of my inherent responsibilities to the earth and to humanity. It is time for a shift in our thinking, it is time to reassess the way we view the earth and our place in the grand scheme of things. To shift our world view away from what we think we are entitled to and focus on what is greater than just “self” will yield immeasurable rewards.

Our future can be beautiful, we are in a position to be all that we were intended to be. To deny “self” the things that cause us harm and detract from our purpose here along with the ability to resist harmful “selfishness” is the mark of one who understands the greater things; it is the only way forward.

Awakening from the sleep state.

The decision to move from what can only be explained as the sleep state into awakening is certainly a personal choice and one that often comes at a great cost, awakening means change and change will challenge the very foundation of your existence. When you awaken you will see that what you have always accepted as truth without question will be placed under unwavering scrutiny, as your vibration frequency changes so will your intolerance towards the shallow and often hypocritical values of the world around you.

You are…

I was pondering the potential of humanity today as I watched the sunrise over the river – this is what resonated within me: The source of all that is, was or ever will be is found within you… the same seed that grew the stars grew you – and your potential has already been decided, you just need to accept it.
