The Possible

The Possible

One day a teacher asked her first graders, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” and she received several great answers. Julie said, “President of the United States!” Tommy said, “I want to be a major league football coach.” John said, “I want to run my own company.”

The teacher was waiting to hear what Billy had to say. “Billy, what do you want to be when you grow up?” she prompted him, and he replied, “I want to be possible.” She asked what that meant, and Billy explained, “Well, my mom is always saying that I am impossible, so I want to grow up to be possible.”

When we are born into this physical existence, we know innately that we are possible. We are connected to the infinity of the universe, and therefore the sky’s the limit. So what happens to us? How do we go from dreaming and desiring to dreading and disclaiming? How do we go from joy and wonder to feeling disconnected and drained? How do we go, within the span of a few years, from possible to “that’s impossible”? If we are born to innately know we are possible, then what changed to create the belief in being impossible?

The answer is very simple. We have been trained and programmed to believe that it is entirely up to our strong will and determination to make our lives and our dreams happen. We supposedly adopted the ways of our ancestors, yet did we really? Originally the ways of our people before us were more principle-based. Even as recently as 200 years ago, our ancestors were operating from an inner awakening of Spirit that is reflected in these words of the Declaration of Independence: “to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them.”

When you really take to an open heart this declaration of being independent, it is amazing how it was just a short window in humanity when it was written. It is time to get back to working with rather than against the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God.

It is in our nature to find our way

It is in our nature to find our way

It is in the nature of a way to reveal itself. A way does not wish to hide or be undiscovered. Until it is discovered, its purpose for existing is not realized. If you do not see it clearly, ask it to show itself to you. Do not be afraid to call out, “Brother Way!…

What is an intentional family?

An intentional family is formed when a group of people choose to re-create a family, whether official or not, by choosing people to surround themselves with in familial support of each other.
