Your real power

Your real power

In deciding what you truly want to do in this life, your best answer should arouse a sense of your own power.

Not power over others, which is a counterfeit version, but a power that wells up inside you.

Which is a good and marvelous thing.

—Of course, we know that propagandists and their minions have been busy trying to defame individual power, but their mission is a dead mechanical operation. Leave them in the dust.

There are several roads here. One, you give up the whole idea of having power. That’s a dud from the get-go. It speaks of a profound misunderstanding.

Two, you opt for an impersonal power which is unconnected to the direction in which you truly want to go. That version of life dwindles.

Three, you opt for power over others, the counterfeit, which is destructive to all concerned.

And four, you experience the power which comes from knowing where you want to go with great passion and imagination—and you go there.

Then you understand the innate power you have, and you lay claim to it. You increase it.

You authentically grasp what you can do, not as part of a sacrifice, but as you.

Down through the centuries, figures of learning have written and spoken about power in every which way—most of them suggesting that it is a thing to be avoided at all costs, or a substitute for something wonderful if people would only see it.

They miss the mark, over and over. There is a straight line between discovering what you truly want to do and experiencing your own power—and it is this line that reveals what great energy is all about.

Exit From the Matrix

Here is a brief excerpt from my introduction to my collection, Exit From The Matrix:

“Imagination rises above the smoke and illusion of the life half-lived. Imagination makes it clear that something new can be created.

“And because it is your imagination, you are one the one who can create it.

“Society may supply reasons why you should stick to the tried and true and familiar, but that is all about living in the past.

“Beyond the mask of society is the secret: there is no end of open space, and that space is the future.”

    Dear Jon,

    Continually, daily now, your words tap into precisely what may be my apparent “struggle,” reminding me that is just a lie! Over eight years ago, my imagination went wild, fueled with passion, heart, and soul, envisioning exactly what I believed I am here to create. Yet I continued to give into various disempowering versions of, “How can that be?”

    I have maintained a thread of connection to my dream, but in the meantime, I spent eight years awaking to all of the realities of the Matrix, including everything I did not want to face about my own birth family, increasingly realizing how many forms of deception there are to sideline us. Just as I was cutting the last threads, you appeared in my life!

    Thank you!!!

    With much Love and Gratitude,

  4. Society is a control mechanism!
