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.
It 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?
