Intention, Free Will, Being Asleep or Awake
While it is rightly understood that the potential for any experiences and events is ever present, the knowing of the experience, the experience and creation of events themselves will be unknown and unexperienced without the creative focus of intention. This is the operational basis of free will. This is the operational basis of your physical reality. In each moment, the potential is present. It is up to you what you do with it. And so, for all the moments you experience in which you, for whatever reason, ignore, deny, or simply remain unaware of, the potentiality of creative intention, you are said to be asleep. And in the moments when you recognize, choose, and activate your highest intentions, you are said to be waking up.
Denial, Acceptance, Perfection, Self-Awareness, and Diligence
The denial of any one thing is the denial of the whole. And this is also why, in your work to achieve this integration and this larger experience of the awareness of conscious creation within your physical reality, you must accept and lovingly allow all of the parts of the self. For the same principle is operational. To deny the part is to deny the whole. You can and should assume that every detail of your creation (that is to say, your experience) is precisely placed, chosen, and enacted for your highest understanding. So that denial, judgment, or separation from any of these details denies you the experience of the higher understanding.
This is the perfection. In accepting the perfection you are accepting your power. Whenever you reject the perfection you move to powerlessness. And while this explanation will seem quite simple in your terms, the experience of the concept can be profound indeed. This is why the ultimate task of making choices becomes intrinsically wedded to your experienced outcomes. If you can allow yourselves to accept each moment, EACH moment, EACH thought, EACH event and experience in your life, no matter how minute, to be the messenger for you, then you can choose in each of these moments to claim the message and exalt it, to accept the message and change it, or simply to allow the message to reveal the deeper meanings of the self and the larger intentions which you seek to know and carry out.
The advantage of this approach is that it removes you entirely from the old rational mind set (which looks outside of the self for evidence) and brings the power of the rational mind to the inner self to apply the evidence and information toward the desired outcome. To some it could be considered that this is simply a new form of manipulation, or what your psychologists would call behavior modification. However, it is much deeper than this, for it deals directly with integration of new understandings with the expansion of what is consciously known within the awareness of the physically focused self. So it is not merely rote, it is not merely following a new set of rules, rather it is the spontaneous allowing of discovery and exploration with a specific intention for a specific outcome, result, or experience.
Of course how you choose to use this information is totally up to you. If you simply use it as another way or means to reject the self you will not make much progress. If, on the other hand, you use it to unite the self under the joyful banner of self acceptance, then you can expect to reap significant rewards. In most cases, among the peoples in your physical reality, the diligence required for this process is perceived as too dear a price to pay, too cumbersome, and too time consuming. However it is our observation that it is none of these. And that, in fact, just the opposite is true.
The difficulty arises in the need for diligence, for within your culture at this time there is a huge and pervasive push towards distraction which can make it difficult for individuals to create for themselves the opportunity for this diligence. But this does not mean it is not possible. Again it is a matter of desire and intention and the will to know the self.
It is necessary for you to be willing to reject that which you do not choose. And while this may be a painful lesson for some, any compromise is your undoing. For compromise suggests a lack of trust and faith in the self.
