Accessing Human Power
How much power does a human have? The basic question is how much access does the person as an individual and as a group have to human power?
Let’s look at an abbreviated inventory of the power of the human:
Synthesizes light and air into nutrients.
Assimilates and adapts to natural and synthetic nutrients.
Assimilates data and perspectives in the presence of nature and other people.
Cycles and recycles through challenge and self encouragement.
Has an intricate system of monitoring, adaptation, and defense for harmful substances and chemical imbalances.
Forms and reforms self healing adaptations to rejuvenate the entire human system.
Filters all circumstantial changes through a network of what we divide into physical, mental, psychic, and spiritual processes.
Activates a sensual network from smallest particle to intricate interconnections throughout the entire person.
This sensual network activates warning systems that translate signals through a wide range of messaging options. The easiest message to interact with is pain. Prior to pain are more subtle messages that have their own networks for attuning human perception to sensations, calibrations (of chemical and electrical status, of balance, agility and spacial placement), initiation and momentum, anticipation and hope, balance points of synthesis internally and externally, and the translation of each attunement into visions, verbal cues, and interactive conversation.
Actively modulates along many spectrums gauged by the contexts of vulnerability and certainty.
Negotiates with the internal and external push and pull of self interest and group survival.
Encapsulates large amounts of data into concise formative projections and artistic renderings.
This list of human power is filled to infinity with the individual and group experiences of all humanity past and present.
The practice of accessing all these powers began with the earliest humans and are preserved in the study of dance, music, and interactive prayer. The source of human power is life itself.
The process of accessing all the power available rests on the willingness of the human to enter the power of life. Entering life requires both vulnerability and certainty, qualities that humans constantly stumble over. Our entire systems prefer to operate on a narrow range of options that are controllable and predictable.
Dance, music, and interactive prayer open areas of experience that point to the variability of life. They codify ways to approach the building blocks of life so we can begin to digest principles and points of view beyond our imaginations, beyond our thought processes.
Just a simple example of the variability these forms bring into our experience. One of the elements of life we can see is the wave form that is continually varying along many spectrums. Each form, dance, music, and interactive prayer, bring an intimate experience of the wave form into every system of the human. The entry brings instant access to powers of life that are automatically given to the human.
The purpose of human life is to activate those powers by discovering access points and the courage to enter and experience the powers on deeper and deeper levels.
