Willpower (flesh) OR Free Will & True Power (spirit) - choose


Willpower is the best the world has to offer
regarding how to get from here to there.

Folks say they are blessed, healthy, wealthy, wise, fulfilled, successful...
because of their willpower.
But, I see willpower as a fool’s errand.

From my perspective, all the hype about willpower leads to a dead end.
We cannot run on willpower, forever - it runs out!
WE wear out, we come to the end of our rope…

Ultimately, running on willpower is
running in the wrong direction,
and using the wrong fuel.

If we truly want to be love, joy, peace… in the world.
If we truly want to be free,
If we truly want to be true to ourselves, to our God, to our calling,
If we truly want to be IN the world, but not OF the world…

Then willpower has our eyes on the wrong prize.
And the fruit will not be delicious or long-lasting.

I could go on and on - because the world has us hypnotized about this.
Most of us are totally programmed to Strive under our own power - even in our spiritual lives…
But there is hope

2 distinctions really help us get back on track, I believe:
Free Will and True Power.


Instead of willpower, we Must get our Spiritual Free Will back

We must get our free will back;
back from where we squandered it, lost it, gave it away.

We can get our spiritual authority back, from others, from religion, from social conventions, from media’s programming…

We can establish spiritual dominion in our own space, taking our own choice back from our lovers, friends, parents, children, family, teachers…

We can be spiritually the captain of our ship, no longer tossed around by our thoughts, our emotions, our impulses of survival, sexuality, control…

We can get back our free will, to spiritually be ourselves, do our thing,
and as we choose, to BE in alignment with our Source
- our God, our Gifts, our Blessings, our Path…

Before we get our free will back, spiritually we cannot follow God, we cannot do God’s will - we do not have choice - we are victims to someone else, something else.

Spiritually, we Must get our Free will back, if we are to get free of the lie of willpower.
Of course all this, by God's Grace, and our soul choice.


Instead of willpower, we Must get our True Spiritual Power back

We must get our Spiritual Power back;
back from where we squandered it, lost it, gave it away.

We can get our True Spiritual Power back, from others from religion, social conventions, media’s programming…

We can be empowered in our own space, taking our energy back from our lovers, friends, parents, children, family, teachers…

We can allow the spiritual force of the Universe, the River of Life, to flow through us, enliven and empower us, Truly.

We can get back our True Spiritual Power to be ourselves, do our thing,
and as we choose to ACT in alignment with our Source
- our God, our Gifts, our Blessings, our Path…

Before we get our True Spiritual Power back, we cannot spiritually follow God - we can only pretend,
we cannot spiritually do God’s will - we can only act like it.

We can only use force, striving, trying, effort
until we line-up with God in our flow of True Spiritual Power

Spiritually, we Must get our True Power back, if we are to get free of the lie of willpower.
Of course all this, by God's Grace, and our soul choice.

Blessings on your Unique Path!
