The Law of Pure Potentiality celebrates the infinite possibilities that is within and available to all of us when we understand and tap into our true self. We are born with this knowledge, but over time, we lose sight of it. Our life’s work is to come back to ourselves.
What keeps us lost from our potential includes things like peer pressure, expectations, ego, pride, lethargy, lack of self-worth, lack of faith, attachments, fear, toxic relationships, and poor lifestyle choices.
All the things that are life-giving come from love and all the things that are destructive come from fear. When we choose from love or from the place that celebrates our highest self, we are connecting to our internal reference point. Here is where our soul is completely free of the roles we play, immune to criticism, and unafraid of any challenge. We do not feel beneath nor superior to anyone. It’s a power based on self-knowledge and it draws people, situations, and circumstances to us that support our desires.
A few examples of this highest self that you may relate to include when you have a deep sense of internal peace, when you connect with your newborn baby for the first time, or when you lose track of time doing something you love. Ultimately, these slivers of time in pure consciousness are not meant to be momentous occasions. They are available to us every day by consistently doing a few simple practices.
Find Silence/Stillness. Practice being a “Human Being” not a “Human Doing”. This is super hard as we are conditioned that our value is based on what we produce.
Commune With Nature. Silently witness the intelligence within every living thing. Watch a sunrise or sunset, watch the formation of birds, or simply smell the scent of a flower.
Practice Non-Judgement. Accept everything and everyone just as they are. We have a deeper connection of spirit when we let go of judgments of people, places, or things- including ourselves.
Come back to that silent space where your true self and potential resides.
For you Yogis, how to practice this law on your mat:
- Find stillness in your body and mind between poses, movement and breaths.
- Cultivate the mindful witness by bringing attention to the sensations that you feel in each pose.
- Relinquish judgement of your ability to perform each pose.
