Chaos is… all possibilities existing simultaneously. Are you ready to let go, and descend into chaos, and ’not knowing’ long enough for new possibilities to emerge?

After the reality check of the last Law of Ultimate Reality, you can see where this is going. Pure Potential has everything to do with how much of that Reality you are living in. What prevents us from reaching our Pure Potential? The same things which hinder our access to Ultimate Reality: perception limitations, personality flaws, ego, fears, all those aspects of spirits being in human form.
As most of us realize, our senses are constantly distracting us, and we are barely using 10% of our brainpower, but our spiritual natures transcend all that. Pure Potential is pure spirit. No agendas, no ethnicity, no defensiveness, no attachments... Imagine living in that state! As Jacquelyn Small says, ‘We are not human beings trying to be spiritual. We are spiritual beings trying to be human.'
For the next ten days, instead of asking your mind for decisions, or even your emotional heart center, ask what does spirit want. See what kind of responses come. When we are spirit led, rather than self propelled, no mission is impossible. But then, the missions also become completely different. They aren't about competition, domination, winning or taking someone else out. They're about gestures, goals and Choices that are often at odds with ego and society's expectations.
When you bring this concept up in conversation this week, notice who shakes their heads as if you're losing touch with reality, and who 'gets it'. Pure is the operative word. Potential becomes possible when the intentions are purified.
Self interest, personal gain, manipulation - all that must fall away - for Pure Potential to reveal itself. It's more like asking to be used, by the Universe, than trying to use it.
If this still isn't making sense to you, here's some more wisdom about it from others.
This law is based on the fact that we are, in our essential state, pure consciousness. Pure consciousness is pure potentiality; it is the field of all possibilities and infinite creativity. Pure consciousness is our spiritual essence. Being infinite and unbounded, it is also pure joy. Other attributes of consciousness are pure knowledge, infinite silence, perfect balance, invincibility, simplicity, and bliss…Our essential nature is pure potentiality.
In this infinite sea of potentials that exist around us, how come we keep creating the same realities?

All we are given is possibilities -- to make ourselves one thing or another.
Jose Ortega y Gasset, Spanish philosopher
What is the greatest potential wanting to unfold? How do you go beyond your personal wants and desires to tap into a bigger picture-a picture of 'what wants to happen,' a picture of your greatest potential and the greatest potential of a moment, situation, project, or vision?
Alan Seale in The Manifestation Wheel
The finest gift you can give anyone is encouragement. Yet, almost no one gets the encouragement they need to grow to their full potential. If everyone received the encouragement they need to grow, the genius in most everyone would blossom and the world would produce abundance beyond the wildest dreams. We would have more than one Einstein, Edison, Schweitzer, Mother Theresa, Dr. Salk and other great minds in a century.
I don’t think any of our dreams begin to come close to the dreams Spirit has waiting with our names on them. I also believe we will only find out once we start investing our emotions in authentic expression and not in specific outcomes.
Sarah B. Breathnach, Simple Abundance
When we feel passion for something, it is because we are remembering what it was that we came here to do. The more passion we feel, the more in alignment with Source we are, allowing this energy to pour through us with no hesitation. This is the way it was meant to be.
We are light going through a prism. The light is always there, but only we can act as its’ prism, concentrating and filtering it. We make of the light of the cosmos, a rainbow, with a mouth and arms.
Idle hours are those in which we are most pregnant with our own potential… True North…the soulcraft of devoutly caring for our authentic selves…
Be bold in your decisions and creative and imaginative in your thoughts. Think and live with the soul of a mystic, seeing the world as a field of grace in which you walk as a channel of light. Live these truths. Become these truths. This is your true highest potential.
As old as humanity itself is the divine gift of human potential: to connect, tap into and realize the perfect harmony within mind, body and spirit. This holistic philosophy is “the space between the notes,” that bridges the gaps between tangible facts, ethical analysis, and intuitive wisdom of the laws of life. It also forms a continuum between here and now and the hereafter.

In ten days we'll take up the Law of Power, until then, enjoy being under the spell of Pure Potential.
