About me and the value of limitations

THIS IS MY END OF A DISCUSSION I HAD IN A FACEBOOK GROUP, SO IT MAY HAVE REDUNDENCY IN IT!  YOU CAN SKIM OVER THE REDUNDENT PARTS.  This issue hits me on an extremely deep and personal level.  I am very serious in the spiritual area and this is one of the areas that I take the most seriously and feel is extremely important to understand if we are to advance further spiritually on this planet!

 1.  Having limitations helps one to better channel ones energy in the areas one is good at. People are all unique to some degree with some areas they are limited to various degrees, and with other areas they are less limited in. We all have to make the most of what we have to work with. The limitations I have in the area of finer motor skills and visual memory are not just products of my imagination. 

  But, it is because I have such limitations that I am sensitive to others who also have to deal with limitations in a world that often makes things really difficult for people with very unique abilities and limitations. Hard work can help one make the most of what one has to work with. One has to be practical and not just keep hitting ones head against a wall. People just have to make the most of what unique abilities they have and be aware that in some areas they will never be that capable at least in this lifetime. Some people can not handle that some people are just better in certain areas than others.

2. Those who really deal with and are constantly challenged with really strong limitations do know how these limitations stay pretty much the same know matter how hard you push up against them. I do not believe anyone that lost a leg ever grew one back. I do not know of anyone who as capable as me of pushing their limits. I have made it a point over a lifetime of effort to try to push myself harder than anyone else would be able to tolerate. People who really push their limits really can understand how certain limits are not worth putting a lot of extra effort challenging. It is so important to focus on what one is good at, than focusing overly on areas that progress is very slow or does not happen at all.

We are not the universe. We can become better connected with the universe/reality if we put in the effort to do so. I have a lot of problems with the overly simplistic beliefs that tend to circulate a lot on facebook and the internet. People who are really challenged a lot in this world spiritually will come to the realization how complicated the reality we exist in is spiritually. I do get along well with people who have strong limitations that give them extra insight into how difficult and complicated life is.

3. I am really good in the spiritual area because of my limitations in other areas. Individual differences are very important if we are to have anyone to really excel in any particular area. Limitations are a valuable part of life. It is just a shame that we live in such a backward planet spiritually that we are so insensitive to the value of individual differences. Facebook has given me serious problems because of my limitations in the visual area, and I am really justified at being angry at their insensitivity toward me. Limitations are a positive thing. I will fight hard to represent the value of the physical world we live in with the limitations and challenges its presents. I tend to want to stay clear of people who are insensitive to the value of differences and limitations.

4. I have very good reason for believing what I do, I have a very strong grip on reality and must in order to keep surviving under conditions that keep becoming more challenging for me. It is obvious a lot of people do not value the type of spiritual expertise I have to offer to this world due to my really hard spiritual work that is the result of my limitations in other areas. We all can not do anything, we are all limited in what we are able to excel in. We need people to focus on the areas they can excel in and to be very aware of their limitations in other areas that they are not as capable in. We will not be able to improve the backward state this planet is in spiritually if we do not have people working really hard to become good in the area they are most capable. We all need to become better spiritually at getting the most out of ourselves so we can contribute to this world in the way we best can!.

5. I am sort of an extreme case. So often people have spiritual beliefs that do not deal very effectively with really challenging conditions and with people/spirits that are extremely hard to pigeonhole.

6.  I feel the word “weakness” can have a negative connotation. I feel people can be quite good in some areas and quite limited in other areas. I may be “weak” in certain areas, but that is what helps me to focus more at what I am really good at. A machine can be good at doing a specific think and not good at doing something it was not designed to do. It is my limited visual memory that helps me to see things on a very basic mechanical level spiritually. I am good visually on a very basic level. I just do not have the type of visual abilities to make me very capable in regular occupations that tend to demand one be able to visualize ones role and required tasks. I find can be quite hard for me to explain this to people who have normal or even really advanced visual capabilities and memory.

 

Being limited in one area actually helps me to be more capable in another area. I am a very specialized spirit. Specialized spirits will often be really good in one area, and not very good in a lot of other areas. Having too many abilities can actually make it hard to focus on one specific area and become really good at it. Some people have more of a normal range of abilities and thus fit more easily into society. Some people do not do very well at being normal, and must make quite an effort to stand out from the masses so that their unique abilities will be seen.. I lot of trial and error comes with trying to break new ground spiritually. I often had to make very quick changes in course in order to keep from getting into serious trouble as a result of the mistakes I have made, but because my mind is limited in its capabilities and focus, I am really good at this. Not having the distractions that a less limited visual memory world create has a lot to do with why I am able to get away with things spiritually others would not be able to.

Not everyone needs to be spiritual specialist.  It is hard to become really good in any vocational field.  This world needs people with skills/capabilities in all the vocational fields that help this world to function really well.  Everyone does well to know enough spiritually to get the most out of themselves in the area they are most able to contribute something of value to this world.

7.  People can specialize in different ways in the spiritual area. Visual people can be spiritual specialists, provided they are able to mobilize a lot of their focus in this area. I have to be very creative in order to compensate for my limited visual memory. This creativity works well in the spiritual area. Basic spiritual mechanics which is where my focus is does not require a lot of visual memory. There are a lot of areas related to the spiritual that others are more capable than me in. But, one has to understand basic spiritual mechanics well in order to have a really good spiritual foundation to support any other special spiritual capabilities.
