The biggest lie that your parents and teachers ever told you was one that they, too, had been raised to believe. It’s a lie that seemed to make sense to them and, at the time, it probably did to you as well.

We are emerging from the Old Reality, where abuse of power was rampant. If a person or an organization gained a power advantage over others, they would often use that to make gains for themselves at the expense of others. Now that we are entering the New Reality – one which is based upon heart-centered consciousness – people who abuse power will eventually be seen, not as winners in a competition, but as undesirables or even sociopaths.The lie which now comes to light is this: That it’s ‘bad’ to have
personal power.

However, we are here on earth in order to find our way back to that from
which we originally came. In order to make the journey back to God
consciousness, we have to keep adding to the power of our minds and our
spirits until we reach our final destination. Personal and spiritual
will continually add to our personal power.

There is nothing bigger or more powerful than Infinite Being, acting as
the One Creator of the universe. One day, you will become one with that
in your realization and your mind and spirit will, by definition, be
bigger than the universe. Between now and that final stage in the
evolution of your consciousness, you will experience continual, balanced
growth in mind and spirit.

The truth that each of us now needs to face is this: You are here on
earth for the purpose of spiritual growth so you will grow in mental and
spiritual ability. That means more personal power and, with it, a
greater ability to help others.

Your mind will grow in understanding, in intuitive wisdom, and in its
ability to serve all forms of life in greater and more meaningful ways.
Your spirit will grow as you help others to grow in their situations and
their abilities.

The purpose of becoming a big-minded, big-spirited person is to be of
big service to others.

Then, in the manner of the New Reality’s heart-centered consciousness,
you improve the world for the of everyone. Life is no longer
about competition. There are no winners and losers any more, just people
who grow by continually doing better than they did before and by
encouraging others to do likewise.

Trying to pull a person down for doing a better job is no longer
productive. In fact, in the New Reality, it is counter-productive.
Everyone should encourage everyone to do everything as well as they
possibly can. Genius should be accepted and encouraged, as it benefits
everyone. When Mozart was just 5 old and already composing, would
it have been better to see him as a pretentious brat or as a genius to
be encouraged? The answer is obvious and, to this day, the world enjoys
the fruits of his creative efforts.

The Shift to heart-centered consciousness on planet Earth is not an
option. It is happening regardless of anything anyone says or does. It’s
a cosmic event that is bigger than the planet and bigger than our solar
system. The Shift is happening and the New Reality will continue to
emerge until it becomes simply, the Reality.

Heart-centered consciousness creates a movement away from the old
of competition. Tomorrow’s world will be built on the New
Reality ethic of cooperation and mutual encouragement.

When the world becomes filled with mutual respect and support, you’ll be
able to wake up every day knowing that each new day will be better than
the one before.
