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 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.

When I started walking process, I started with the most ‘obvious’ things in my Mind and relationship with others that were undeniably compromising me and my life in general. Like, for example the point of ‘taking things personally’ – this was an obvious point that I could clearly see in my Mind and relationship with others was affecting me, my behaviour, the experience of myself and decisions I would make when it comes to other people and how I experience / behave towards them.

So, what is suggested within your process – to break through the controlling fear of your Consciousness keeping you in an “isness self acceptance” is to simply have a look at your own mind and relationship with others / things in your life that you can clearly see is compromising your experience. For example: seeing that you emotionally react to the same person in the same instance over and over and over again, seeing that you have difficulty waking up in the mornings – having a tendency to wake up with emotion, seeing that you judge yourself constantly throughout the day, seeing how you fear the future, seeing how memories of the past still haunt you when they come up within you to which you emotionally react…so, identify one such point within yourself and start working with it / on it with the tools of writing, forgiveness and practical living application as walked in the DIP Lite (Free Course) and DIP Pro Course.
Herein, with taking one point and seeing for yourself how you can change – this moment gives you the OPPORTUNITY, a ‘break through’ opportunity to be able to take on and walk through the other parts of yourself in your Mind / your life in general to walk into and as a process of change.

When I started with taking that first step of walking self-forgiveness and changing myself in moments, an interesting thing developed within me: I was becoming curious as to how I would change with investigating, understanding and opening up all the other things within myself and my life…and so my process of change, of becoming and realising my utmost potential started. Because, I realised that: I initially interpreted the process of change to be like a “180 degrees flip”, you know – where it was like all of me was on one side of an A4 paper and change would be when you flip that piece of paper around completely and I would become so changed I would not recognize myself at all…when this is not how this process of change happens…
This process of change happens more as a birthing process through which a ‘changed self EMERGE’; so it’s more like an ‘emergence’ of self than a complete ‘flip’ that happens. For example, you can look at it as: standing on one side of a waterfall, in the cave of the Mind – always only ever seeing the inside of the cave / the mind as it exists, always only looking into the waterfall as the milieu of thoughts and emotions your consciousness generate…so, process is more like parts of you, walking a process through the waterfall, understanding the thoughts and emotions, the ‘self’ it creates in the cave of the mind / consciousness and out into the other side into the seeing / realising of your utmost potential. As you walk through the waterfall, the process of understanding the thoughts/emotions and the extent to which they define / affect behaviour and one’s experience – you simultaneously start transforming / changing and in this process your awareness EXPANDS into and as the ‘great outdoors’, the multi-dimensions of the mind and this reality - SEEING MORE as YOU become MORE within yourself in/as your transforming, birthing and expansion process.

For example: when I was taking things personally, I believed that ‘it’s who/how/what I am’ – because my thoughts and emotions would automatically, immediately come up and I would react to another person’s words / behaviour…never KNOWING that I can actually change the experience of myself. So, here – a part of me was in the cave of the mind, this part defined as ‘taking things personally’; so as long as I accept/allow a part of me to exist as ‘taking things personally’ – whenever a person would speak with me/behave towards me a certain way and that resonates towards me, my mind: the potential for me to take things personally will always exist, because I accept/allow a part of me as ‘taking things personally to exist’…therefore becoming predictable in the sense of in similar situations / with similar people speaking / behaving in particular ways – to react in taking them personally.
So, the process is thus to change / transform this part of myself of ‘taking things personally’ into rather ‘seeing the words / behaviour through the eyes of the person, considering them’. This is the process of walking through the waterfall, out of the cave – as a part of you would then transform from always accepting/allowing to take things personally, to now standing in the shoes of another. So then, every time people speak / behave in certain ways and that resonates towards self – instead of the ‘taking things personally’ part of myself stepping forth, what now stands is ‘standing in the shoes another’ and instead support them rather than react to them.
The actual process through the waterfall is understanding the thoughts and emotions creating the ‘taking things personally’ part of myself, where they come from, why they exist, why I accepted them – to forgive and let go of the thoughts / reactions and instead make a decision to stand, be stable and change myself in the moment and how I respond in the moment. Herein, self EXPANDS – because previously: I was limited to only seeing my own thoughts / emotions in such moments – now, with moving beyond them, remaining stable and placing myself in the shoes of another – I SEE more, UNDERSTAND more about myself and others, because with taking that step back and out of my own mind, I now learn more about another – why they do / say what they do in moments, that it more defines them than it ever defined me, for example. So, it’s fascinating how much you LEARN about yourself as these parts of you EMERGE from the cave of the Mind through the waterfall of change into a self expansion within oneself, one’s relationship with others.

So, this process is not a change as in a ‘flip’ change, but a change as in how you transform, birth ‘dormant potentials’ within yourself and so EXPAND yourself to being / becoming so much more than the accepted and allowed limitations the controlling fear of consciousness impose on one, keeping one in the darkness of the mind to not see / realise and in fact live the potential within self that’s been suppressed. You just need to take that step to move THROUGH and BEYOND your thoughts and emotions and realise that there is a part, an awareness within yourself that can direct and change your thoughts and emotions for the betterment of you, your experience and your relationship with others.
So, again – I suggest, for those who are ‘sceptic’ – take a self honest moment with yourself, identify difficult / challenging things in your mind pertaining to thoughts, memories and emotions that have become a repetitive cycle you can see is compromising your experience, body / relationship with another and see what change emerge, how you transform yourself – showing yourself how change is a birthing process and how you can expand yourself with UNDERSTANDING how the mind, thoughts and emotions work with the ability to direct them and change them.

In the next post I will continue with some practical examples of how exactly one’s awareness expand as you walk the process of self transformation, change and eventual birthing – the process of realising one’s potential and eventually living one’s utmost potential…

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.
