Spiritual Theme of the Month for December, 2011.

IMPEL

By Francisco David Coll

Freeing myself is true liberation.  No one can do this for me.   Anytime I feel captive, restricted or dependent, I need to return to the basics:  I am a soul with a physical body, not a physical body with a soul;  I am intelligent light; I am energy.  I came here to learn and grow. I learn and grow through involvement and experience.

I have a unique purpose and Thrust. It is unique because I am the sum total of all my thoughts and feelings throughout eternity.  I have a master team of Spiritual Helpers here to guide me in my spiritual growth.  They are here to work with me, not to work for me. I am free.  I am free to experience great challenges, blocks and stepping-stones that seem overwhelming, just as I am free to succeed. That is freedom.  Once this truly becomes a part of my understanding, I will become more conscious of the real me.  I will live the Soul Consciousness.  I will live life.

What I have inside is Perfect. There is no place for doubt. I do not need to get wrapped up or caught up in perfection.  This will only dilute my inner motivation and incentive. Just as the Universe and Nature are perfect, so am I.  “Perfection” is in the bliss, the challenges, and the ups and downs of my life.  It is in the process and flow of life; the journey.  I do not need to concern myself with perfection. I am already perfect.

My opportunity is simply to do the best I know how and learn and grow from it. That is why my desires-my true desires-are so important. My inner desires and needs are my intelligent design.  The moment I feel them, I am in the process of creating them. Inside me exists the power and potential of lifetimes, and the energy and wisdom of the Universe.  I even have a whole team of Spiritual Helpers I can check and recheck with.  All I need to do is focus on what I need and want and get involved.

There is an inner desire that I have … an inner drive. It truly comes from inside and not outside.  This inner desire is in harmony and in tune with the Universe.  It helps me with my niche.  It is associated with the power of Will.  It is not an outer push but rather a natural flow, like water traveling downhill.  If I get caught up or controlled by outer things my inner desire can seem like a whisper or gentle breeze that is easily ignored and replaced.  This is because I have trained myself to jump when there are outer demands.  I let the emotions and my thoughts bully my true feelings.  It means I have put too much focus and priority on outer motivation and things.

As a soul I need Drive in my life, but when I allow my energy to get out of balance I confuse drive with “forcing” or “pressure.”  I may even wait to be told what to do.  By doing this, I lower my inner standards and create excuses. This is a lazy path, and I take it when I am afraid or doubt the solutions, energy and leadership I have inside.

There is no “free lunch.”  That is a Spiritual truth.  This does not however mean that my needs and wants are difficult to achieve.  It simply means that I must be willing to put forth energy so that I may receive energy.  This is natural when I’m being me and enjoying life.  It is innate.  As a matter of fact, I claim the challenge. I want opportunity. The Real Me is decisive, bold and spirited; taking action and being fully committed, like a deep flowing river.  It is enjoying and balancing my two worlds.  As long as I am crystal clear in what I can take with me, I can enjoy and be involved in anything I feel I need or want.  When I consistently do this I understand what it means to move by desire; I freely accomplish the fulfillment of my goals.

I lead with my heart. It shows the way. I organize with my head, so I don’t go astray. I follow-through with action.  That is the accomplishment and fulfillment that feels like play.  This is the simplicity and power of what I am – Feel, Think, Act.

Fulfilling my true inner urge is effortless.  I do not have to force things.  My energy has force, but I am not about forcing myself, people or things.  I have drive, but it is not about being a slave driver.  I have true concern, but it does not mean that I pity or cater to myself, people or things.  I am gentle, but it does not mean that I waste time.  Every moment I am drawn toward what I need to be doing.  It is not harsh or difficult.  That is part of what distinguishes it from an outer urge.  It comes from my core.

The heart wants what the heart wants.  I remind myself that “I have no limitations” and that “everything is going to be alright.”  I move forward and I work from this pivot. There is nothing that can or will stop me.  I am free to experience and feel. Setting my own goals based on what I truly feel I need is first. Giving myself plenty of time to accomplish is second.  Discerning the places I need to be is third. Knowing the reason and feeling the success as I progress is fourth. The rest is just follow-through.

 That is IMPEL – The Way of the Wayshower.
