Thefield of potentiality: This is the game board of life, the playing field where the game is played and anything’s possible.
Pure potentiality is the first spiritual law of Deepak Chopra’sseven spiritual laws of success. He tells us that In our essential state, we are pure consciousness. Pure consciousnessis the field of potentiality. It is the field of all possibilities and all creativity and this is your essential nature, your essential nature is one of pure potentiality. (A baby: how do you view a baby? Does a baby occur for you as limited? Does a baby occur for you as “already set in stone”? No. a baby is the purest expression of our essential nature. The baby is the possibility of all possibility.) THIS is who you really are, pure love, life energy-pure potentiality. And it’s in knowing who you really are that you can fulfill on any dream, because you are the immeasurable potential of all of it. The field of potentiality is your OWN SELF and the more you come from the experience of the Self, the closer you are to the field of potentiality and your life purpose.
The experience of the Self, orSelf-referral, means that your reference point is your own spirit. It’s not the objects of your experience as your reference point. SELF REFERRAL gives permanent power, the power to create, pure knowledge, infinite wisdom, perfect balance, simplicity and bliss. There are certain characteristics of that power, it draws people to you and it also draws things that you want to you. Your spirit, your mind and your emotions align creating whatheartmathcallscoherence.
It develops in such a way that people, situations, and circumstances are drawn to you to support in what you really want. Your power is such that you enjoy a bond with people and people enjoy a bond with you. Your power is that of bonding, a bonding that comes from PURE LOVE. Life energy and pure love, that is who you really are.
The opposite isOBJECT referral, where you are influenced by objectsoutside yourselves, which includes situations, circumstances, people and things. It is in this way,OBJECT referral, that you give away your power, your innate power; the power of pure creation. Creating your experience and creating your world.
It is driven by your projected Image and the projected image is your social mask. It got created to “fit in” to please the family paradigm and then eventually got adjusted to “fit in” or to please your peer paradigm. It’s not who you really are, it’s yoursocial maskthat wants approval, it wants control, it wants to have power, because it lives in fear.
In this reality you’re seeking the approval of others, their approval gives youmomentsofperceived powerbut that power isn’t real, because as soon as the approval is missing, you become powerless. Your behavior is always in anticipation of a response. Therefore,FEAR based. The initial bruise creates an obstacle between the heart brain and the head brain, that obstacle exaggerates fear and perpetuates our powerlessness; our lack of coherence.
Yourtrue self, which is your spirit, your soul, is completely free of those things. It is immune to criticism, it is unfearful of any challenge, and it is neither inferior nor superior. It’s humble, as it recognizes that everyone else is the same self, the same spirit in different expressions.
Dr Gerald Jampolsky in his expression of theCourse In Miraclesexplainsthat there are only two emotions: fear and love. Love is our natural inheritance; it is the essence of our being. Fear, on the other hand, is manufactured by the mind. In other words, love is real, while fear is an illusion,anything FEAR based is blocking the current of LOVE. You see, love is always present, it is always moving and FEAR blocks your experience, expression and the expansion of that love around you, blinding you from who you really are and what your life is about.
Deepak tells us how to access the field of potentiality, the field of all possibilities?
One way to access the field is through meditation and the practice of silence. Simply being! In the beginning your mind becomes turbulent, but eventually staying with it, that internal dialogue begins to quiet down. That’s when it becomes profound. The mind gives up.
Practicing non-judgment. To judge is to constantly evaluate, and classify things as right and wrong, good and bad. When you are constantly analyzing, evaluating, classifying, labeling, creates a lot of turbulence in your internal dialogue, and when you create turbulence in your internal dialogue you restrict the flow of energy between you and the field of pure potentiality. You literally squeeze the gap between thoughts; the gap is your connection to the field of pure potentiality. It is that silent space between thoughts that connects you to true power. True power is the power to create, infinite creativity; it is the ability to cause extraordinary results without force.
Communion with nature, direct contact with nature. A stream, a forest, a mountain or a lake, a seashore, that connection with natures intelligence with help you access the field of pure potentiality.
As you gain more connection to the field you will spontaneously receive creative thoughts because it is also the field of infinite creativity and pure knowledge.
People who access the field have meaning and purpose in their lives and are happier, feel more in control and get more out of what they do. They also experience less stress, anxiety and depression. This is where the “lights” come on, and you are looking for your unique contribution to be expressed in the world. Getting to know who you really are and what you are really about becomes critically important.
