Self Reliance is the Ultimate Achievement

The ultimate achievement is pure SELF-RELIANCE. I mean…re-LIONce! I’m convinced there’s nothing more powerful.

.

However, the potential for reaching this state exists only in the most evolved people–specifically those who have the clearest perception.

.

i.e The SPIRITUAL person.

.

Whereas the less evolved person— the AVERAGE person, is unlikely to ever become self-reliant due to his limited perception.

.

Consider the following statement:

.

“We must function effectively within our social communities to survive”

.

This statement is true for both observers—the SPIRITUAL person and the AVERAGE person, but what it means for each person isn’t the same.

.

Here’s why:

.

*The AVERAGE person perceives a lower plane — He is stuck in the survival paradigm. The illusory ‘dog eat dog’ reality.

.

The average person is concerned with survival of his EGO.

.

The average person operates believing that he must function effectively as a MEMBER of the community to survive.

.

Of course, the primary requirement for membership is CONFORMITY.

.

So for the average person, functioning ‘effectively’ within social communities means CONFORMING to the community.

.

Thus he must CONFORM TO SURVIVE.

.

*

The SPIRITUAL person perceives a higher plane — he exists in the spiritual paradigm.

.

The spiritual person is concerned with survival of his SPIRIT.

.

The spiritual person understands he must function effectively as an INDIVIDUAL in the community to survive.

.

Of course, the primary requirement for individualism, is SELF-RELIANCE.

.

For the spiritual person, functioning effectively within social communities means maintaining AUTONOMY within the community.

.

His survival is no longer dependent on conforming to the group. He must now survive the group, in order to evolve from the group.

.

He must INDIVIDUATE TO EVOLVE.

.

See the difference?

.

Self-reliance = Individual freedom = Power to evolve


*

SHEEP who need the herd produce strength in NUMBERS. But a LION with the courage to stand alone manifests true power. —true power in ONE!
