The voice of opposition, whether internal or external, buries our intention, out intuition, our sense of purpose in the task. Often times the voice manifests itself as self-doubt, crawling in as a whisper steadily escalating into a roar. Sometimes it is an obstacle, a barrier or criticism. A simple “No”, a fear or a physical or mental inability. Other times, a mere distraction, your mission or goal starting off with a fiery passion only to fizzle in the day-to-day mundane.
In each scenarios, we are failures. Not in the grandiose way of the Titanic sinking. But in the simple avoidance of a solution.
See every seed planted, every idea, goal, task, every inspiration regardless of size came from a Grand Muse. One who does not carelessly sow. And we allow that spark of brilliance to burn out. Sure, that wall may seem too tall to climb or life may just be too hectic. But what are we to say at our account when looking back we see just how simple it could have been. Especially when put into execution by a master design.
What must be done or said in every situation is unmistakeably easy. Visually knock down that wall of opposition, verbally bash self-doubt, speak the desired goal and watch it move toward finish. We have been given a great gift. In our souls is the key to fruition. It is the image we are made in. By recognizing our spiritual connection with God on an earthly level, we simply must call it out of ourselves. Through His spirit, he fills ours with power and ability. We are intrinsically a part of Him and He a part of us. The bible says he knows the desire of our hearts, yet still says to ask. It is the power of profession. In our voice, our tongue, our words or spoken thoughts and wishes.
And to get off on a tangent… between my rekindled art of organized thought, my green tea and my own words, I’ve been thinking and growing. What sets us apart? We are organic, living, breathing mammals similar to many other creatures. What is different in us? What tangible evidence sets us above or separate?
It is our spirit, which is our thought, our voice, our intelligence, our creativity. The image we are made in is neither organic nor human, but emotional, mental energy. Everything has an energy, or exists. But we live! We feel, grow, change and create. We as humans with a Godly image have the knowledge to build, design, learn.
And it is a great responsibility, this mental capability that sets us above. It creates a choice. As organic beings, we would not be aware of an outside impact, only our singular existence, like an animal who eats, sleeps, exists rarely thinks outside of itself with the exception to offspring, but acts on instinct. But as spiritual, intellectual and emotional energy inside of organic beings, we must admit the intertwining of our lives with our surroundings.
Which leads to a great abuse of such heavenly power. The morality of being spiritual is often tossed aside. And the idea of being intellectual takes precedence. Those who deny the spiritual responsibility altogether for the intellectual benefits of creativity. And then the question is then, because we can, should we?
God giving us a choice does not say God appeals to both options.
But back to my first point: all power, life, death, creativity, ostracism, encouragement, wisdom, foolishness, and ability lies in our tongue. For our tongue releases words emanating from thought, which emanate from emotion, which emanate from spirit, which emanates from God.
Simply put, just speak it.
