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.

A New Place of Deeper Living

As long as we believe the cross is rugged, we will never outgrow the splinters that come with it. We will never learn to go with the “natural grain” of life—a cross of empowerment rather than a cross of deep, wounded rejection and disconnection. Dolly Parton was once quoted as saying, “Get down off the…

Greatness

Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds -Albert Einstein- Have you ever felt like a “button pusher”. If you are a clear thinker and you are assertive you can definitely push a few buttons. People at times are intimidated by originality. They like things in a box. If you are a great…
