Awaken YOUR Superhero Powers : Power 10 of 10 - Realization
As part of my every thought, word, and action, I am inspired by the heroic ideal of spiritual intelligence. I pursue highest knowledge!
The last aspect of the superhero is perhaps the most important, because it makes all the other powers make sense. The power of realization is the power of leaving behind everything that isn't true, everything that clouds your vision and makes you doubt yourself, your powers, and your ability to make positive change in the world. The power of realization is the garden hose that washes the mud off the windows and lets us see things clearly.
I reflect often on the motto given to Superman's ultimate quest - a never ending battle for truth and justice. (the American way came later) If all the other powers describe things you'll need on your heroic quest, the power of realization reveals to you where you're going - or where you need to go, as well as what holds you back or threatens to steer you off course.
Imagine what a reality of all truth, nothing false would be like. Your GPS would get you to your destination every time. The news would be timely, relevant, and completely accurate. Your thoughts, words, and actions would be in complete sync with reality - and how effortless life would be.
Commit today and every day towards taking steps to achieve a life of all truth, nothing false, beyond the pull of distraction and confusion, knowing exactly where you're going and how you're going to get there. Bring all your powers, skills, and friends to your aid as your heroic quest begins.
Thought: Where are you going? Where do you know, deep down inside your heart, that you need to go? Are they different?
Word: Examine what you've said about your life. How can you use more accurate, more clear words to describe where you need to go?
Action: Assemble your ten powers of a superhero and put them ALL into action today.
