Yesterday Walter brought me out of my #CBHF through reading to me The Law of Pure Potentiality from Deepak Chopra’s The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success. I was having a challenging day – concerning myself with what others were thinking, how I would respond, considering permutations out the wing-wang…all with less-than-desirable responses from my body, my mind, significantly reducing my ability to interact on any form of rational level.
He then read: ‘The experience of the Self, or “self-referral,” means that our internal reference point is our own spirit, and not the objects of our experience. The opposite of self-referral is object-referral. In object-referral we are always influenced by objects outside the Self, which include situations, circumstances, people and things. In object-referral we are constantly seeking the approval of others. Our thinking and our behavior are always in anticipation of a response. It is therefore fear-based. In object-referral we also feel an intense need to control things. We feel an intense need for external power.’
I recognized the need to step back and reconsider. I had been operating from a position of object-referral. And by doing so my behavior had become fear based. So then…how am I to experience self-referral?
‘When you discover your essential nature and know who you really are, in that knowing itself is the ability to fulfill any dream you have, because you are the eternal possibility, the immeasurable potential of all that was, is and will be. The Law of Pure Potentiality could also be called the Law of Unity, because underlying the infinite diversity of life is the unity of one all-pervasive spirit. There is no separation between you and this field of energy. The field of pure potentiality is your own Self. And the more you experience your true nature, the closer you are to the field of pure potentiality.’
I imagined our world and my place in it, of my body and it’s infinitesimally small cells creating my entire being. I had visions of individual blood cells combined together, going with the flow, as blood, bringing oxygen to the other cells of our body…working in unity – our body having access to its pure potentiality. I can only imagine that blood cells know their essential nature, their purpose.
However, if a cell in our blood decided not to go with the flow, decided they wanted to consider an alternate purpose for their existence, or have a hissy-fit, they would no longer be in harmony with their purpose, no longer be in unity (going with the flow literally and figuratively) and access to pure potentiality would be lost.
I am “the eternal possibility, the immeasurable potential of all that was, is and will be.”
In embracing my true self I find unity with Self, harmony with all and have unlimited access to my pure potentiality.
Blessings of abundance to you all!
