Life implies a certain knowledge, which knowledge requires a comprehension of itself, leading to a requisite combination of intelligence and consciousness, embodied within some aspect of a mind capable of creating, or at least capable of processing both thought and emotion to that extent it is also capable of expressing and of directing the power of both, as it does so in exercising an apparently inherent free will to do, or to cause to be done, whatsoever it can imagine could be done by it, within an only known limit imposed upon it, of not being able to create more life (- or anything for that matter. Life as we experience it, merely has capacity to experiment with re-arrangement of what already deliberately, or accidentally co-exists within it’s known existence.)
Clearly then, this elementary thing that we are; this form of “human life”, is not at all a very capable being. In spite of our lofty desires, our noble efforts, and our otherwise feeble attempts to associate the life within us to a greater knowledge, to higher intelligence, to an innate/universal consciousness, or to absolute creativity, we are in truth, only minimally capable of two simple things; that of expressing and of directing the power of thought and emotion, and even that is limited to our perception of how those thoughts or emotions relate to what already exists.
In innate desire, almost an insatiable need - an emotion, resides in each of us, to increase or to be increased by the power associated with or inherent to, our expression, and to our direction of our remaining thoughts and emotions. Whether we desire increase in knowledge, in wisdom, in abilities to help or be helped, to heal or be healed, to influence or be influenced, or to manifest, we all desire.
To fulfil our desire, there is no secret. We do not need to ‘find the key’, or ‘unlock the door’, or to gain ‘special or unique skills’. There remains no scientific discoveries to be made, or researching yet to be done.
We need only to learn how to implement our uniquely pre-existing capability, which is to accept that which is already known within each of us. Then, if we desire to convert that inherent knowledge into the awesome power that is its potential, we simply and appropriately express and direct our acceptance of the power of that knowledge through our thoughts and emotions. This is how we all - each and every one of us, already manifests the realities of our life, each and every day of our life - whether we know we are doing it or not.
Thus what most often appears to many as a “noetic” experience, is merely their occasional recognition of an accidental implementation of their natural, but otherwise latent potential. They, by being a’live’, have simply perchance noticed doing, what they, and everyone else, is capable of always doing with the life that is in them.
As opposed to waiting for the next accidental or noetic experience to occur, I favour learning to do this with deliberation and consistency inasmuch as it applies to all things I choose daily to do.
