“We can change the world if we start trusting our own superpowers.” –Nina Hagen
Baby Huey, a popular cartoon character when I was growing up, is a naïve, oversized duckling in diapers. Because he has the mentality of a baby, but the size and strength of a sumo wrestler, he inadvertently knocks things over and constantly causes problems. He has no idea of his superhuman strength.
That’s us, in a nutshell.
Our consciousness has the size and strength of a sumo wrestler, but because we don’t know it, we squander our abilities and often make a mess of things
ACIM Lesson 38 (There’s nothing my holiness cannot do) speaks to the size and strength of our abilities.
If you really get this one, if you incorporate it into your everyday thinking, you’ve mastered the Course. It’s the reason the law of attraction works. It’s the reason there’s never reason to despair. It’s why J.C. could heal the sick, raise the dead and walk on water.
The only reason the world “stays” the way it is now is because we use our superpowers to stare at things we don’t like. We run the data we downloaded from our culture instead of generating the brilliance we’re capable of.
Every atom, every molecule, every energy wave of your being pulses with the creative life force.
So allow me to paraphrase from the actual lesson itself:
** Holiness is your superpower.
** It reverses all laws of this world.
** It allows you to remove all pain, end all sorrow and solve all problems.
** It gives you dominion over all things.
This is a biggie, friends, but I think I’m ready to put on my cape and step out of the phone booth. How about you?
