What Really Can Be Done

I cannot really tell you how important it is to assume the impossible can be done. I do not mean to consider that it may be possible - that something heretofore considered impossible might be done but really to take in as a belief that the impossible can be done.

This does not mean that terrible things can be done - it means that things that we have considered in the past or have been brought up to believe cannot be done, really can be done.

It boils down to permission. What we have taken away from us when we start to grow up - and even when we are little children is permission - don't do this, don't do that, that's just your imagination. All of these things that are very well intended by the adults or parents or grandparents and even friends that we grow up with.

Many of these intentions are well grounded so that we will be safe - at least in the eyes of those around us but how often is permission taken away, and of course we wish to please these people - yes, how often is permission taken away when simply by allowing that it may be possible - certain solutions could be derived. If not at a tender age then maybe someday when one grows up.

I'm not here to blame anyone but rather I am mentioning these things because when I was younger I had some things that were also taken away but there were other things that were encouraged.

I was fortunate enough to have parents that allowed me to imagine and such imaginings have led me to having perhaps, greater permission to assume the impossible can be done.

I grant that when I started my work at the very beginning that I didn't believe that any of these things could be done. That was conditioning that I received as a result of my life up to that point but once I started having results and I had the evidence of my own eyes and other senses I came to it quickly - perhaps not as quickly as I would have liked but I came to it fairly quickly that the impossible can indeed can be done.

I will be addressing the "impossible" more on this site - and while I have begun many of these topics on Benevolent Magic I will carry on with further lessons here and try to advance your capabilities as much as possible.

For all those of you who are ready to embrace them - I salute you. For others who are not sure I welcome you to consider the possibilities.

Dear Robert

I found this interesting quote in the internet :
"Nothing is Impossible. Even the word says I M Possible"
Fun, isn't it...

The Mother of my former wife used to say to my youg Daughter "No, it's not possible" when she in fact was thinking "I do not want you to do it"...And I always translated that phrase to my child explaining the meaning her Grandmother was thinking of...
The result is that today as an adult my Daughter do not accept anything as impossible.

Patrice, what a wonderful example. Thank you for sharing it.
It is an interesting reality isn't it how the best of intentions can get a little bent eh. It's a good thing you were there to smooth things out.

I have a handwritten entry in my personal journal that is so close to what you have written here that I did a double take when I read it. We are definitely on the same "wavelength" here. :)

Louis, thank you for your comment. I must say I'm tempted to say something about catching a wave being here in Hawaii but I'll pass that up and just appreciate the fact that we are in agreement.
Thank you my friend.
