Our Great Power to Benefit All

Relying on open intelligence brings about our great power to benefit all. It doesn’t come about through any other means. It can’t be created as an external construct that needs to be learned and put into place. It all comes about in the great perfect knowledge that subsumes learning and non-learning both; these two extremes are subsumed in a comprehensive conduct that is of benefit to all.

We Are Mighty and Powerful

Initially we may not realize how powerful we are, and so by pausing when agitated or doubtful, in a short moment we actually feel that pacification and empowerment within ourselves. We’re actually feeling into the circumstance, whatever it is, with great precision. As we do, we quell and restore the natural spontaneous ease that is already always the case. We restore the ease and total power that is our very nature.

We Are Empowered

Even though we were all born naturally free and beneficially responsive, we gradually learned to experience a disempowered way of living. So, just as we have learned very gradually to live in a disempowered way, so too through our own direct experience we come to really know profoundly and deeply, totally instinctively and spontaneously that we are empowered. We are empowered with beneficial potencies, and these beneficial potencies flow freely and spontaneously in each moment of life.

Empowerment in Immediate Perception

There is empowerment in immediate perception, empowerment in the use of our naturally beneficial and responsive intelligence and empowerment to exercise the full potential of the beneficial potencies of mind, speech, body, qualities and activities. Now, this is really very simple, and it is none other than the process of experience we’ve already been involved in. We have been disempowered in immediate perception through learning disempowerment in immediate perception. We have been disempowered in the naturally beneficial and responsive intelligence that we all innately are and that fuels and fires each one of us. We have learned disempowerment in terms of exercising the full potential of the beneficial potencies of mind, speech, body, qualities and activities, and then we have practiced this disempowerment on a daily basis.

Each of Us Is so Extraordinary!

Each of us as an individual is so extraordinary, but without confirmation of that extraordinariness by other human beings it is doubtful that we will recognize our full beneficial potency. This can be likened to having a treasure map but not finding the treasure, because there is no one there to tell us what it looks like. We might have a treasure map that we know leads to some kind of incredible treasure of wealth and fortune, but unless we know what the treasure looks like, then we’ll never find the treasure. Even with the map we’ll walk right by it, because we don’t know what the treasure looks like.

Empowered Beneficial Potency is Key

Each of us innately has incredible beneficial potency, and each datum, no matter what it is, is fueled by open intelligence and its beneficial potencies. No matter how the​ datum is described, it is fueled and fired up by open intelligence; it would not be without open intelligence. It is a dynamic expression of the beneficial potency of open intelligence. However, unless this is empowered, we don’t know that it is present. So, empowered beneficial potency is key.
