Powers of the Mind

"I am greater than the I that I created."  "Everything begins and ends with me."

When we reach the point in our lives where we  accept ourselves as  whole, perfect, and complete, we will have found the clarity to free our minds of toxicity. This is the level of awareness where the greater power of Enlightenism exists. .

Unfortunately, the Enlightenism awareness-of-being is elusive for many of us. We live our entire lives in the darkness of toxicity, never able to achieve clarity  Our fate is predetermined by our willingness to accept what others teach us as being the only clarity possible for our use.

Similarly, the vast powers within our mind remain dormant in a state of secrecy and detachment.  And unbeknownst to us, the only way for us to ever partake of this great power within us is to release our attachment to others' beliefs and values.

Regardless to what we think of our power, it's always greater than the conditions in our lives. We remain the creators of the thoughts and actions that produce the conditions. So our creative powers are always greater than whatever we create.

Unfortunately, we frequently forget how our actions -- small and large -- create mosaic expressions of our seemingly unique actions functioning as separate entities completely disconnected from the ultimate results of lack, limitation, and struggle.

Nevertheless, whether we can accept it or not, we are the creators of the pleasant  and unpleasant conditions in our lives. Some of which appear in the forms of a nightmare.

 Even though we find it difficult to accept that we created our own nightmares, unfortunately that's what we did and continue to do whenever we're depending on toxicity to free us from toxicity.

Many of us cannot wake-up from our nightmares so we continue to live in a cycle of brief moments of inspiration that's followed by longer moments of feeling trapped in the pain of an unrelenting nightmare, which we cannot seem to wake-up from on our own.

Whenever we believe we're in a nightmare, imprisoned in a hopeless situation, we must remember that it's just an illusion. This means it's something we can change with our powers of mind.

Some of us have discovered a way to wake-up. We have found that the power to wake-up exists outside of the beliefs and values causing to have nightmares.

Meanwhile, whenever we feel dissatisfied with our lives, this is the time for us to reflect on the causes for how we feel. I recall a powerful and poignant expression from the book, "Seeds From the Ashes," that I believe will enhance the clarity of the words here:
  • "The victimized mind is unable to free itself from the effects of powerlessness. To overcome victim beliefs, you must first overcome the beliefs that cause you to think you are a victim and live a victim's lifestyle. This means that everyone living in a neighborhood must first empower (enlighten) their minds to think and live beyond the self-imposed victim beliefs of lack, limitation, and struggle. It also means that one person can begin this process of empowerment (enlightenment).That one person's actions will have an immediate impact on his or her family members, which will have an impact on those who interact with each of the family members."   --- "Seeds From the Ashes"
