I am the Master of my Mind

Many of us suffer from the victimization-powerless syndrome  We don't believe we are victims or powerless because we don't fit the societal profile.

Nevertheless, whenever we feel powerless, we seek power from wherever we can find it. During these temporal moments of despair, we frequently seek relief from the many spiritual references available to us.

When we do turn to our spiritual teachings for power, we do so by admitting to ourselves that we don't possess the requisite power to solve our own problems. This means the greater power we seek is beyond our awareness-of-being and outside of our mastery.

The moment we desire changes in our lives is the moment we acknowledge, whether we're aware of it or not, the need to access a greater power. Unfortunately our judgments on the conditions of our lives come from the illusory inculcation of toxicity that are responsible for our judgments.

When we feel inadequate, we desire to correct our inadequacies by using a model of societal normalcy to guide us in our work. During each step or action we evaluate our progress to ensure we are becoming the person that resembles the model-person we are working to become. 

Similarly, during the stressful and painful periods in our lives there are moments when I remember the powerful insights from the book, "Seeds from the Ashes."

"The self-doubts in your life today represent all the things -- beliefs about yourself and your position in the world -- that you have acquired up to this point in your life. The measure of your success and failure in life is manifested within your thoughts about where you are today. If you don't like what you have produced in life, you have the power to change your life by producing something different. If you do like what you have produced in life, then you may not have an intense desire to make a commitment to change your life."
Some of us have discovered a new way to think of power. We accept that we are the masters of our minds and that all power flows from our awareness-of-being a master. We are aware that nothing happens in our lives without our participation; either active or passive, known or unknown.

We have discovered within us the greatest power of all: EnlightenismEnlightenism is the awareness-of-being itself in a colorless, faceless, and formless existence. It is this existence where we claim our rightful place in the world as masters of our minds.
