Explore Your Potential

"Explore Your Potential","  It awaits in a twilight zone between idea and reality, where all things are possible but none are actual.
  It is from the depths of this interior awareness that you can shape your destiny.
  An act of imagination is the seeding of an idea that will bear fruit in a time that has not yet appeared.

When your heart and mind can look into the past, into your reserve of memory, select its most choice ideas from it and project it into the future, then you have begun the journey of exploring your potential.

All men and women dream but only some have the courage of their convictions.

Many, unfortunately, are capable of going through their days without entertaining a single original idea, content with acquiescing to the propaganda of vested interests.
These are the ones who push the race forward, stretching the limits of consciousness further into the realm of new possibilities.
  Your success is a wave that carries others, inviting them to examine their own potentiality.

The urge to be more than you are right now, to express a nobler speech, a finer mind, a more uplifting outlook, a larger reach of resources is the urge of life itself to explore its dimensions.

A human being is in a perpetual dynamic tension between potential and actus.
  Potential is determinable.
  These terms should not be confused with the ideas of physics which refer to the capacity for change through work from one state to another.
  With material objects, an external force is extrinsic, some outer force is making the conversion from one state to the next.
  For as a sentient creature evolves, it increases its power, secures its survival, and experiences the happiness of a broader and fuller expression of itself.
  At times, this frustration is felt so acutely as to result in self-destruction, either through suicide or self-degradation.
  The human psyche hungers for design, and it will do almost anything to satisfy the quest for meaning.
  Ultimately, the conversion is one through the medium of intelligence, from the creative intelligence of envisioning to the practical intelligence of bringing about and maintaining a higher order of adaptation.
  As Spinoza once said, ""Happiness is power increasing.
  You can be happy now and as you increase your power in the world, converting more potential into actuality, your happiness will also correspondingly increase.
  Mystics have reported this state of oceanic consciousness as blissful.
  Our task is to engage the great game of life and ride the beam of evolutionary advancement of consciousness itself.
