Your Infinite Potential
by Owen K Waters
Today, we are just beginning to appreciate the enormous scale of
Creation. In the Middle Ages, most people worked the land. They rarely
ventured far away from their place of birth, so their concept of the world
was quite small. Likewise, their concept of God the Creator was small in
scale. To them, God was an all-powerful, wise, elderly, human-like figure
who lived somewhere above them.
People, at the time,
didn’t realize the massive size of the planet upon which they stood.
To them, most of their universe could be seen from the top of the nearest
hill. Today, with cosmology and the Hubble telescope to help us, our view
of the size of the universe has been stretched farther and farther.
What we have learned, since the Middle Ages, includes these
1. The Earth is not the center of the universe.
Apparently, when this was discovered, it came as quite a shock.
2. The Earth is round. This was excellent news at the time: No more
worrying that you might take to sea and row off the edge of the world!
3. The Earth travels around the Sun. This means that, while
modern-day life on Earth may seem to be expensive at times, it does come
with the added bonus, once a year, of a free trip around the Sun!
4. The Sun is over a million times bigger than the Earth.
5. There are 200 billion other suns in our own galaxy.
There are well over 100 billion galaxies in the universe.
big as the universe is, in order for God to be everywhere, God has to be
When you view God as Infinite Being, the All That
Is, or the Absolute, you have a sense of scale that still encompasses all
of Creation, no matter how far the universe stretches. The infinity of
Infinite Being encompasses all of space. The Creator aspect of Infinite
Being created all of space within its consciousness.
question is, where does the individual fit into this enormous scale of
The deeper into your own consciousness you explore,
the more you become aware that the All is One. That the infinite
possibilities are all expressions of the One. Beneath all expression is
just the One, and the One is Infinite Being.
In the ‘All
is One’ ultimate reality, you are a viewpoint of the One. Nothing
can be truly separate from the One. It can only be another facet of the
Regardless of how huge the universe is, you are fully
connected to the Creator of the stars, the planets, and all of life. We
are examples of the infinite variety which is Creation and each one of us
is an essential part of the whole.
If it were somehow possible
for you to disappear from the universe – and it isn’t –
then Creation would be infinity minus one, and that is no longer infinity.
You have always existed and, in whatever form that suits you at the time,
you always will.
Because people are an expression of Infinite
Being, the potential within each and every one of us is infinite. There
are no limits to what you will become in your journey back to your
original spiritual home. And, there need be no limits in the life that you
are now living.
A world that encourages all of its people to
develop their full potential will be more supportive, creative and
productive. Everyone will benefit.
Just think of your true
human potential this way;
Infinite Being, infinite
