The Heart of a Self-Determined Soul

A spark of courage lives in some people which transcends the known into the uncharted territories of our human existence. Those who explore, experiment, speak out and refuse to accept an association with those who remain stagnant. People who form their own ideas, find ways to act on them and manifest the vision they foresee. They are the free thinking positive self-determining souls who change the world and assist in our spiritual evolution. Their actions bring about the opening of our metaphysical selves and awaken abilities to bring us into new purpose and understanding for humanity. Without these brave souls humankind would have done itself in long before now.

When a country or group of people strive to become self-determined, they can choose to form a collective of like-minded souls who are progressive and evolutionary or choose the opposite. They are the trail blazers, the voice for those who would dare speak out as a minority, or for the minority, to bring about their liberty from another group they deem unsympathetic to their needs. Their decisions form the gathering’s flavor and direction for the future. Do they keep with what has always been done, or do they think with insightful hope for the changes which will benefit everyone’s life?

In a family of people who are related by blood, the dynamic depends on the attitude of those in charge. In a co-dependent, judgmental environment there is little encouragement for breaking free. When a person has discovered a talent or interest beyond what is known in the family the family members have a choice to make. Do they help a child or loved one to grow their dream or do they discourage the dream’s existence out of fear? These decisions may not seem so important sometimes, but they can be the catalyst to set someone on a path of incredible discovery. These challenges grow a person’s will and courage to be able to overcome just about anything put in their way.

In a group of people who grow together with respect and integrity, it can be hugely successful to break away from a crowd which has crown lazy and unmotivated to change anything for the better. Spiritual, religious and political groups have all experienced the force of self-determination at its best and also at its worst when the influence is negatively charged. People have been disowned, shunned, put on a watch list, and accused of being disloyal for having the will to act without the approval of others. Yet, if no one took the chance to say no, there is a better, another way to see things, we would still be sitting by fires outside a cave waiting for the sun to rise.

We need the self-determined motivators, activators and educators to come forward now more than ever. This is the time now in our human history to stand up and speak up with not just our words but our examples. Show us why we want to live in peace. Show us how to see ourselves as human beings with a spiritual force that lives inside and help us heal these places of darkness and negative action around us. We can make a difference with a force that strives to determine a better humanity through actions of love, compassion and acceptance for each other.
