Imagine a very young child, thus far being taught so little about the world. Imagine that his parents choose to do more asking than teaching. Over time, they ask opening questions such as these:
“Tell us about the world.”
“What would make this world a wonderful place for you to live in?”
“What do you see yourself doing in the world, or for the world?”
“What potential do you see for the people in the world, including yourself?”
“What kinds of things or experiences would you like to create?”
“Tell us why everyone is so happy.”
Surely some of the responses would be pretty wild, but such questions would open the door to thoughts of possibilities and creative intent. Now imagine schools asking the same questions, and focusing more on developing dreams and creating desired changes for the next generation. Before disclosing how the world is working now, find out where consciousness would like to guide it, and provide hope and empowerment for positive change.
I suppose this happens in small quantities, but more often than not, parents and teachers are determined to teach children what they think they know and what they want the children to believe. Creativity and possibilities ultimately become limited, especially given that childhood is tightly controlled, and children must attend school for such a long, drawn-out part of their lives. The system causes us to become blind slaves to the corporations, and at the same time believe that we should feel happy and free, when we know very well that life is somehow not satisfying. We watch more and more laws being created that limit our freedom, and we feel powerless to make improvements both individually and globally.
What we fail to realize is that this all came about because we FEEL limited and powerless as a result of our brainwashing system. Our creativity has been stifled, and we haven’t even realized it. We were taught how things are and how things are supposed to be, as defined by those in charge; but that was all a wild creation that someone else came up with, and that we got sucked into. Maybe it’s time we stop buying into an old dream that is clearly not serving us and begin to create our own.
People feel powerless and frustrated because they cannot figure out how to fix the form—the physical world in front of them that they see and experience. But the form is not the problem. The form is the result we have created from our thoughts and feelings. It is the energy behind the form that needs adjusting—the belief in possibilities and in our own power to create something new…our creative ideas of how we would like things to be…our sound belief that our well-being is determined solely by our own consciousness, and not by the constraints placed upon us by others…the feeling of empowerment.
Scientific studies of today carefully account for the proven fact that a study has a higher probability of producing the outcome expected by the scientist conducting the test. If a single scientist is that powerful, how powerful are we as a group? Naturally, if we are used to seeing things a certain way, we expect them to stay pretty much the same; but we do not have to. We can choose a higher experience where there is nothing to fear; and everyone is on an even playing field, all doing what we choose and serving each other simply because we desire to know and express love. This world could be a place of love and sharing, instead of competition and material greed. We could choose to place zero value on money, and it would thus serve no purpose and remove falsely assumed power. And all we have to do is expect it, mentally ask for it, demand it, and not settle for less; while at the same time, surrendering to the possibility of something even greater. First we create it with visual intent, and then we allow time to bring it forward, leaving zero room for doubt. Do this and then sit back and see just how powerful you are, and how you and others are guided into your new dream. And if the entire world is not ready for such an awesome new way of living, then at least you will have created the experience in your own smaller world. It is time to stop believing in the limits we have created in the past. We have lived in that illusion long enough. Now it is time to create a much better one. First know your power and then you will experience it first hand.
