Are you closer to the aims of your youth, or are you a copy of a copy, a tangent of a tangent, a limit of a limitation? Are you an imitation of your intended path?
If the answer is not:
“I AM WHO I AM. THAT IS THAT.”
then the answer resides in your sea of pain. Whether conscious of it or not—it is still painful in the long run.
The key to remaining powerful and on point; the key to living in the answer, “I AM WHO I AM” is a combination of avid flexibility and daily consistency. Flexibility prevents you from taking offense to the constant offense of time. Consistency allows you to navigate the constant defensive nature of space. For every one of your actions is an equal reaction. Therefore you must consistently and flexibly check your course against that “master map”—I AM WHO I AM—in order for your life to remain connected with the direction of your core intention. Otherwise, it is increasingly easy to become that tangent of a tangent and then a copy of a copy and then the limits of the limitations of your imitations.
You are either moving forward or backward. Life is never stagnant. Change is the only real constant. There is no standing still in this material creation. Therefore, one must apply a strong daily directional intent to remain on point. Otherwise your direction will be chosen for you—not by you.
When you appear to stand still in doubt, confusion, or fear, you are actually moving—just not in any direction of your choosing. You are being shifted onto the tangents that streak throughout time-space—at someone else’s pace—toward someone else’s place. You are living someone else’s dream. This is the danger-zone infiltrating your “safety” zone of indecision, doubt, fear, confusion, and inaction.
Accomplishment only takes place when you actively participate with your intentions. All the “shoulds” and the “coulds” are great indicators—but time-space requires your active participation. Therefore, fully commit to participate in the dreams of your choice in spite of all the risks confronting you.
Learn the living art of the martial arts. Become responsive to the offensiveness of this material world without taking offense, without being offensive or defensive. Leave no trackbacks in the fabric of space, and time will not knock you down in its defection from—or its reaction to—your projection.
Make this your daily occurrence:
Persistent affirmation of your goals.
Do not wish upon time from the sidelines of life, but commit full participation in the actual—active—construction of your goals. Experience the living affirmations of being YOU every day. Retrieve all the dreams that you knew in your youth, or if you are still young, never leave them. Become their guarantee daily and you will live them. This is spiritual growth in the new evolution of human consciousness.
I AM WHO I AM. THAT IS THAT.
