“When I discover who I am, I will be free.” – Ralph Ellison, Invisible Man
“Do not let the memories of your past limit the potential of your future. There are no limits to what you can achieve on your journey through life , except in your mind.” – Roy T. Bennett, The Light In The Heart
The concept of “potentiality” goes back to Aristotle, looking at “Actuality, or Activity” and “Potentiality”. Intellectually it is not too challenging to understand the concept on its face value, i.e. what is your potential and what is what you actually manifest from that potential. However, when you start looking at where the potentiality of your life lies, it gets more complex. The potentiality lies in dimensions beyond our immediate perception and it is our own limitations that dictate what actuality you manifest from it.
This is where “Free Will” comes into the equation. We may not perceive it, but we have free will as to what we draw from our potentiality into our physical expression. What you manifest lies in your mindset and ability to perceive. However, from what aspect of yourself are you exercising free will? Are you consciously aware of that aspect of yourself from where you direct your free will? I will venture to say, “you do not”, in actual fact very few of us do. I am yet to fully connect and be aware of that aspect of myself, but I know it is there and I seek to come into alignment with it.
My hope is that you are given some new perspectives and start to asking yourself some of the big questions to release you from the boundaries of your own limiting beliefs. Enjoy!
