You Are the Best Thing That Could Ever Happen to You!
Your Powers: Perceiving, Permitting and Prospering
You are here to know that you have no limits. You are here to be who you were meant to be. You are here.
Your Power of Perceiving:
Whether we believe it or not – what we think, we become. No other power in the world has as profound an affect on our life journey as the power of our own thoughts.
What we experience in life depends on what we allow to happen in our reality. And what we allow to happen is based on how we perceive ourselves and the world we live in.
Our perception is deeply rooted in the way we have been programmed, or have programmed ourselves, based on our experiences, beliefs, and – before all – what resonates with who we have become thus far.
For some of us – the world is a place existing on its own, in which we have no say and can’t control it in any way. Some perceive the world as a hostile place, full of the “others” whom they need to fight, or avoid, always ready to attack or defend themselves. For others, the world is a place that serves their ego, where they can fulfill their needs, whether materially or emotionally. There are people who see the world as oneness, where everything is purposeful. Yet others see it as a big unknown, where anything is possible.
Your vision of the world reflects your vision of yourself.
You have the power to change your perception at any time, and in any way you want.
Your Power of Permitting:
You can let yourself be who you want to be – not who you have been programmed to be. Your vision of yourself is not a fixed thing.
There are no two identical individuals, or identical lives. Not only is each human being unique. But also every animal, every plant, stone, grain of sand, a drop of water, or snowflake.
When we realize the beauty and importance of our existence – we naturally expand our vision of ourselves.
Appreciate, embrace and respect who you have become.
Only then you can give yourself permission to be who you want to be, and to live the life you want to live.
Your Power of Prospering:
Fortunes go. Empires crash overnight. When we base our worth on what we own, or what we think we own – while, in fact, it owns us – we often become enslaved by credits, mortgages and possessions in excess. We don’t work and live for ourselves. We work for our possessions – and they become our master. We live in constant fear of losing what we gathered, and we are often at war, with others and ourselves.
And what if we get sick, or the economy changes – and we can’t afford to keep the things we thought we needed to be happy? To have and enjoy material possessions is fun, and there is nothing wrong with it. But to let them control our lives – is an entirely different story. Things are only things. We are worth much more than all the things we own or want to own.
Your real value cannot be measured by all the things in the world.
Enjoy your stuff, but don’t pay for it with your life.
You deserve much more that just a pile of stuff.
We have true power over our own experience. Our power is greater than that of our environment, employers, government, and anybody we know, or don’t know.
When we are looking for power coming from our conditioning, whether social, religious or shaped by personal feelings of worthlessness – we actually diminish our true powerful selves.
To live a truly peaceful and prosperous life, is to live our life according to the vision of our Heart. The world according to our Heart, is the reality we truly want and need to create for ourselves – if we want to remain happy, reach fulfillment and continue to progress. The vision of our Heart is bigger than our vision of the world, and our vision of ourselves.
* In the Master Teachings of HOPE, we use the word “Heart” to describe the core of our essence, our “pure inner person.” The part of us where we hold our own, beautiful truth, free of any conditioning and fears.
To truly prosper in life – is to prosper in the endeavors of our Heart.
Don’t be afraid. You and only you have the power to accept or reject anything you want.
Your life is your own journey.
Only you can decide where and how you want to arrive.
Your Powers of Perceiving, Permitting and Prospering will help you at every step on your way. All you need is to remember that you have them, and to use them well.
