Here we’ll share practical perspectives, understandings, insights and realisations about self, the mind, the physical, the world, consciousness – and everything and all else in-between as the multi-dimensional existence that we currently consist of and exist as; and within that: practical support and assistance methods/tools/techniques of facing this existence as self in the process of standing-up and standing-together in changing ourselves to change the world.

The Desteni of Living – Utmost Potential (Part 8)
The Principle of Realising and Living my Utmost Potential


In this post and posts to come, I am discussing what ‘Realising and Living my Utmost Potential’ practically means – through showing how I have (and still do) live and realise this Principle.

STEP 1: Recognizing my own Potential (Self Forgiveness)

In the next post, I will continue sharing more detail in terms of how to identify the ABSOLUTE ideas / beliefs you can hold onto that interferes with you seeing/facing the ‘current real you’ in reality, as well why and how it is that your envisioned / imagined potential is but a mere GLIMPSE of what you can potentially be / become with walking self change practically moment by moment, breath by breath.

I have personally found with interacting with people – there is an “Isness Self Acceptance” existent, whereby the individual’s ‘who, how and what I am’ is so cemented into their consciousness, they do not see (or do not want to see) the reason – let alone potential – for self change. This mainly existent within the statement “why should I change?” / “I don’t need to change” / “I am what I am” – as there is a full, complete ‘current self acceptance’ as a whole embracing and simultaneous lockdown simultaneously the Mind. Essentially saying “I am the Mind – I am what I am – nothing more, nothing less”.

These types of barriers are tough to break through, because I have often heard people say “there is nothing wrong with me”, “I don’t need to do self forgiveness because I didn’t do anything wrong”, “I am fine – I like who I am and I am not going to change for anyone / anything”. So, these types of common statements – in each one of them, I have found that people intrinsically do not understand the purpose / reason for process and often approach it by ‘taking it personally’ or resisting / fighting it because they are interpreting process as ‘changing who they are’, when all the while it’s about ‘changing who, how and what we have become as the MIND’ through which the ‘real self, the utmost potential’ will emerge. (Here I would suggest investigating the DIP Lite Course – herein you will be introduced to the basic constructs of the Mind to practically understand what is meant with ‘self as the Mind’ and understand the process of self change from Consciousness to Awareness)
So, obviously – such statements would be existent from / of the ‘force of Consciousness, the Mind’ to ensure we remain ‘as is’, in an ‘isness self acceptance’ and not in any way be willing to introspect nor reflect on ourselves in thought, word and deed - and remain in this embracing, lockdown relationship with our own Minds in and as the living statement of ‘I am what I am’.  The ‘force’ that the Mind / Consciousness uses to ensure we remain in and as this ‘Isness Self Acceptance” of “I am what I am – nothing more, nothing less”: is FEAR.

The main reaction to process has been Fear. This fear comes through in many forms. How I have seen it come through in people, when looking at it interdimensionally-physically is like the energy coming up from deep inside their minds and bodies and overwhelming the Conscious and Subconscious Mind – the mind completely taking over the person’s ‘self’ and so the person will ‘react’ by either going into defence as illustrated in the above statements, or ‘running away’, or becoming verbally reactive – projecting blame, fault onto me / others, or finding any and all excuse, reason / justification for this ‘Isness Self Acceptance’.
Fear takes on many forms and many believe fear only exist as an energy-experience, and so when they do not immediately go into a ‘fear energy’ – then they believe they are not in fear. When all the while – because the Mind is layered multi-dimensionally into the conscious, subconscious, unconscious, quantum mind and quantum physical – fear can take on many forms in the Mind and in Behaviour; such as illustrated above, based on how the fear reaction can be seen coming through in different ways in thought, word and deed based on the individual’s own programmed protection / defence mechanisms to remain ‘as is’ and not change into the emergence of in fact becoming something ‘more / better’ as one’s ‘utmost potential’ in life and living.

This was no different to myself in the beginning of my process – this ‘Isness Self Acceptance’ of ‘I am what I am – nothing more, nothing less’…it was only when I took the first step of starting to walk the Process, starting with things inside myself and my life where I could without a doubt see that I was compromising myself and others – that I broke through these protection / defence mechanisms of the Mind and the barriers / walls of ‘I am what I am’ that I could look back within myself and my life and see, realise and understand for myself how: it was never that anything was ‘wrong / bad’ with who, how and what I was – merely that I had an existent POTENTIAL within mySELF that I didn’t even know existed until I was SHOWN the potential I could become and me obviously showing this to myself. With this existent Potential being a process of becoming MORE, of becoming IMPROVED in who, how and what I was in my living, in my AWARENESS and my relationship with myself and others.
So, an interesting thing about this process is: the BREAKTHROUGH from “Isness” to “Rebirth” – from accepting oneself ‘as is’ as the Mind, to birthing oneSELF into and as one’s utmost potential. With this ‘utmost potential’ only being able to be shown by taking the first step to start and this first step to start is breaking through the control of fear of your own mind / consciousness and the different ways in which your Mind’s fears can manifest.

In the next post, I will continue with sharing a way through this Controlling Fear, through the barriers of protection / defence mechanisms keeping Human Consciousness in an stuckness / isness of being ‘I am what I am’ – with this point a contributory factor to why and how it is that we intrinsically have not changed within / throughout the history of human civilization; and why our minds, our lives and the world as a whole keep on cycling through the same perpetual consequence generation after generation.

Time to break through the veil of consciousness and into the rebirthing of life – the potential of the human to be / become so much more than what we have accepted and allowed ourselves to be on an individual and collective level.

The Principle of Realising and Living my Utmost Potential



In this post and posts to come, I am discussing what ‘Realising and Living my Utmost Potential’ practically means – through showing how I have (and still do) live and realise this Principle.

STEP 1: Recognizing my own Potential (Self Forgiveness)

In the next post we will continue expanding on this point of how to practically assist and support yourself in such a way that you ensure you don’t shift yourself into a future projection that you imagine in your Mind and forget to walk your process in real time, in this real world – where your process of self potential is a birthing process walked moment by moment.

A tendency I have found within my personal process – is to fight against my ‘current real self’ that reality exposed. My ‘current real self’ being that which reflected back to me in my thoughts and emotional reactions whenever I would speak to people or interact with them. ‘Reality’ exists in the moments when you are with people – either speaking, simply interacting and especially when you are alone with yourself.

I found that one of the greatest single interferences within my real time process (real time process being where I am in moments speaking / interacting with other people) – were ideas / opinions I would hold about myself; where such ideas / opinions would more often than not be contradictory to my visible behaviour in my outside world.
In relation to ‘taking things personally’ for example – I had this idea / belief about myself of ‘liking people’, when the fact of the matter was that I ‘only liked people whom like me’. So, my statement was more coming from only those in my world I had good relations with – yet the truth in my behaviour when it came to meeting people was that I was shy, nervous and afraid – because what would come up first within myself was self judgment, comparison, competition, inferiority and a whole lot of other things reflected in my thoughts and emotions. So, as part of your process – have a look at any ‘absolute statements’ you have about yourself, like for example: I had this idea / belief about myself of being ‘attentive’. Yet, when looking at my behaviour and living in reality and what reality exposed – I often forgot things, didn’t consider others in moments, didn’t take full responsibility for things. The fact of the matter was that I was only ‘attentive’ when it suited my personal interests and/or when I had a hidden agenda in mind in relation to other people.

How this relates to the point of imagining potential vs. living potential is as follows:
A practical suggestion I have that I applied for myself when I realised how my ‘Imagined Potential’ was interfering with me walking my process in reality of becoming and so eventually living my ‘Utmost Potential’ is to practically utilize my Imagined Potential as a REFERENCE for what I want to personally achieve for myself. So, I had to within myself align my starting point within and as the following words: “I see, realise and understand that I am not yet the potential I can foresee I am able to live. I endeavour to in every moment I speak / interact with people – apply the tools of forgiveness and self-change as every moment of application and change is a stepping stone of me becoming and so eventually living my potential of change I envisioned”. So, what is essentially needed is an ‘acceptance’ of: “Okay, this is who and how I am right now – it will be a process to change, with this process of changing manifesting in every moment I in fact, in reality, in a real time moment apply myself and change”.

As I mentioned within the above, we tend to want to believe our own ideas / beliefs about ourselves we hold onto within the Mind – which then makes it very difficult to see the REALITY of ourselves, to FACE the reality of ourselves in moments of participation in reality and also looking at ALL areas and relationships of our lives. So, this is the one adjustment I would suggest doing within your process – whether you’re starting your process or have been walking for quite some time:

Adjustment 1:
Ensure that you don’t hold onto ABSOLUTE ideas / beliefs about yourself that may in fact only pertain to one person, one area or some moments in your life – but practically ask yourself the question “am I living this idea / belief equally within all areas within my life”. Like, for example the “I like people” – to ask yourself “do I really like all people” and/or “I am attentive” – ask yourself “am I really attentive with all people in my life, all the things that I do, all the things I need to remember / tend to?”

Adjustment 2:
Ensure that the potential you envisioned is simply a reference, a motivation, a ‘goal’ to reach – that the envisioned potential does not shift you from walking your process in real time, in real moments of speaking / interacting with people. That your MAIN FOCUS is on your real time reality process…because another interesting dimension I have found is that what I did envision was a mere GLIMPSE of what I would become by putting in the time, effort, process and discipline in real time moment as I walked self-forgiveness and self change.

In the next post, I will continue sharing more detail in terms of how to identify the ABSOLUTE ideas / beliefs you can hold onto that interferes with you seeing/facing the ‘current real you’ in reality, as well why and how it is that your envisioned / imagined potential is but a mere GLIMPSE of what you can potentially be / become with walking self change practically moment by moment, breath by breath.

The Principle of Realising and Living my Utmost Potential


In this post and posts to come, I am discussing what ‘Realising and Living my Utmost Potential’ practically means – through showing how I have (and still do) live and realise this Principle.

STEP 1: Recognizing my own Potential (Self Forgiveness)

In the next post, I will expand more on practical ways I have played with in the beginning of my process as an example of how you can start your process of taking the first step of realising your potential to decide and so change who / how you are within yourself and your living. Also, how I assisted and supported myself to slow myself down, which slowed my Mind down to be able to see and so direct myself effectively in relation to my Mind as the thoughts and emotions.

What I found fascinating within this process of writing and living the Desteni tools, especially in the beginning of my process, is where I very quickly would start envisioning my potential. As much as I could see and understand the problems I was facing within myself – I could also start seeing how I could be and experience myself if I would be able to transcend and change the problems I faced within me and my world / relationship to others.

So, with looking at the ‘taking things personally’ point that I started my process with – as I was walking the process of immediately in the moment forgiving the emotion that would come up, letting the thoughts go and stabilizing within myself – an ‘excitement’ of sorts emerged within me. I mean, previously – my thoughts would haunt me, my emotions drown me…burdening myself with the things that would come up within my Mind that would also have a draining effect on me physically.
As I progressed within my process of writing, forgiveness and practical change – I was more and more able to stabilize myself, my mind and this experience within me was eclectic on so many levels, because I, myself – for me, was able to direct my mind, my emotions…really change myself, my experience and it was at the same time like my physical body was ‘awakening’ in the sense of becoming more comfortable, more relaxed because I didn’t before realise the extent of physical stress burdening thoughts and emotions could cause.

Now getting back to the excitement: I responded excitedly to this change that I was noticing within me and my body and started envisioning within myself how freeing it would be to finally be more grounded, confident and comfortable with myself – like, not anymore at all accepting and allowing other people’s words / behaviour to affect me to such a massive degree.
To understand the timeline here: I became excited BEFORE I in fact completely transcended the point – so, I was projecting into the future, because I had during this time only a couple of times proven to myself that I can direct my thought, I can forgive and release the emotions and stabilize myself…I had not yet proven to myself that I changed where I do not react emotionally anymore, but am able to understand the other person in their words / behaviour…rather than me taking them personally / making it personal. Now, becoming excited and projecting change into the future may seem ‘okay’…but does come with consequence.

Soon enough, I started shifting inside myself where – I became more excited about the future change I envisioned within my Mind than me focusing on my process of change I was still busy walking moment-to-moment as I was facing people’s words and behaviours. This then caused a split within myself – ‘living in two worlds’, where the moment I would face another’s words and behaviour I emotionally reacted to when taking them personally, I created a double-dose of reactions for myself as follows:
It was like, in that moment – I reacted to the other person’s words / behaviour and then additionally reacted to the fact that ‘I was not yet my future potential self’. This then caused me to not be able to apply myself immediately in the moment by stopping participation in the thoughts, forgiving the emotions and stabilizing myself – because my focus shifted to me ‘not being my potential RIGHT NOW’.

This is what tends to happen in the Mind when you hold onto a future projection with a feeling-energy, such as excitement. In the Mind, when you imagine something – it can sometimes feel so ‘real’ that you start believing on some level that you are already your ‘future potential self’. This then causes a shift within you to the extent where, the moment you are faced with the ‘real you’ as you are participating with other people, you react to the ‘real you’ thinking / believing that ‘this is not who I am’, because you’ve held onto the ‘future projected you’ you imagined / envisioned within your Mind. Then, soon enough – you start ‘fighting’ the ‘real you’ you in fact face in reality, in moments of real participation with people as you try / attempt to enforce the ‘future potential self’ into reality. When all the while, to change for real – you have to change as you face the real you in moments of participation with others, in real time live and apply the tools and over time and process, you emerge / birth yourself into and as your utmost potential.

In the next post we will continue expanding on this point of how to practically assist and support yourself in such a way that you ensure you don’t shift yourself into a future projection that you imagine in your Mind and forget to walk your process in real time, in this real world – where your process of self potential is a birthing process walked moment by moment.
