Last night I watched a DVD on Prophecy by John Van Auken (the author that wrote the Jesus book that I’m always raving about). It was so fascinating to me to listen to his mind talking about all the amazing things he’s studied this lifetime. He talked about the Mayan Prophecy’s. The Biblical Prophecy’s. Edgar Cayce’s and Nostradamus’s Prophecy’s. All these great people that had visions of the future. Accurate visions. Visions from hundreds of years ago that are still coming true today.

prophesyIt all got me thinking today about potential. What if those people hadn’t pushed themselves to keep seeking. Pushed themselves to take risks when society thought they were crazy. Nostradamus had to be very careful back in 1550 about the things he wrote. The prophecy’s he had and yet here we are, 460 years later, still scouring through his prophecy’s to get a glimpse of 2012.

All day I’ve been bugged that I haven’t pushed myself to my potential. Someone sent me an email today and told me to stop apologizing for my gifts and start celebrating them. I thought the timing of that email was quite a “coincidence” after watching these prophecy’s last night and then tossing and turning all night about my own potential.

I know that if I ask God to show me the next level of my potential, I will be shown and there’s a part of me that’s definitely afraid to take that next step. I want to keep my life nice and simple. Do the on-line classes. Do readings. Maybe open another spiritual center one day. But something happened last night while watching that DVD and I know there’s no going backwards or staying the same. It’s time to go to the next level of pushing myself. That’s what we’re here for right?
Healing the wounds of the past, discovering the Christ part of ourselves, knowing our oneness with God and partnering up with God to develop ourselves to our highest potential. That’s my understanding of what this is all about.

I’m actually feeling kind of excited about it too. Stay tuned for the next part of the adventure. I’ll let you know what it is when I get there.

Are you living up to your potential?

  1. I’ve not heard of that DVD (or book — will have to look it up!). But I think a lot about potential, whether my kids are living up to theirs (one most definitely is not, which is a current heartache) and whether I am. And lately I’ve taken it up a notch, I’m happy to say. I know in another post you talk about multi-tasking, and I found that interesting as well. (I actually do best when I have a list and just work my way down it. Not a computer program, just a plain old pen-and-paper list. Such satisfaction when I cross off an entry!

    The DVD I just was watching is more about psychic phenomena with insights into the world of the unseen — to me it tries to explain the miracles of the mind, which are profound. The film is “Something Unknown” and is from a Dutch documentary filmmaker, Renee Scheltema. It includes interviews and stories from all kinds of leading experts and celebrities in the fields of science, alternative medicine and para-psychology. I love the idea about the hidden powers in our mind (which dovetails, to me, with the power of God!).

  2. En ole lukenut McEwanilta muuta kuin Rannalla -romaanin, joka oli jotenkin ahdistava ja hämmentävä. Sementtipuutarha odottaa tällä hetkellä hyllyssä lukemista.Sovitusta haluaisin yrittää, koska siitä tehty elokuva oli mielestäni loistava. Vaikka ei ehkä pelkästään leffojen perusteella pitäisi kirjojaan valita… :)

  3. I am very interested in this idea. I’m not in archives, but I do work in a library, and I think this is one of the major information issues libraries should be thinking about today. I could see it expand, too, to how do we collect digital records, and how can we create institutional/organizational strategies for planning what to collect.

  4. never thought kitchener would be spruking fabric to me. ha ha ha!! history students of time past would probably love how you used this poster. ;)sorry no temptation for me today. spent all my pennies on arab st on monday. ;P
