― Edmond Mbiaka
"If potential was a seed, how would you create the greatest opening for growth within the Earth? Your potential is like a packet of seeds. Each seed holds possibility and then that possibility translates into your reality." His kind eyes reassured me of this life changing image.
As I pondered this image in my mind, I thought of the seeds that I have planted, and almost as if he was reading my mind, he continued.
"Most of us never quite grasp our potentiality. Our potentialities are always unfolding. So what are the structures you have in place to help you with your growth?"
"Awww"...I let out a long sigh. I don't think I have every really considered this concept.
He continued. "When we know our potentiality, we can understand the conditions required for our growth. For example, tomato plants need a cage so that they can be supported and their vines and won't rot, whereas potatoes need lose soil to spread out."
As the class all zeroed in on this profound example, we all began to formulate our alignment to our potentiality. In order to advance in our lives, we must inquire of the support systems that we need. Each one of us is blessed with amazing possibilities that germinate into potentiality. What conditions do you need in place to support the harvesting of your heart?
Are you present in your body? Are you focusing on gratitude? Do you have a tendency to extend kindness to yourself and then not to yourself? Are you breathing in the curiosity of living? Do you require structure or does your life move in a more fluid manner? At what percentage are you living your potential?
"I'm not sure Michael, I feel like my career potentiality is only at 30%. I feel confusion about what to do next?"
"That's so great Sarah! Confusion is encouraging because it is leading way to greater expansion." He chuckled a bit and smiled in such a kind way. "Lean into your confusion."
I know that in my life, learning, teaching and writing are some of my most treasured potentials. My next step is to inquire about the structures that best support these aspects of myself in an expanded way. How will you support your potential?
