“Possibility consciousness is continuously cultivated in my mind. I never limit what’s possible to what is probable. I acknowledge facts without allowing them to define the potential of the Divine.” Rev. Deborah L. Johnson
The above quote came to mind after I learned that all twelve members of a Thai soccer team and their coach were safely rescued after being trapped in a cave for over two weeks. Originally, there was speculation they might be required to remain in the cave for months but with the assistance of expert divers and a seeing of other possibilities, all were saved although one diver died after delivering oxygen to the trapped team. The leader of the rescue mission during an interview said that they had finished a rescue mission that some thought could not be achieved. The seeming impossible was possible after all.
So often when a crisis arises, our first thoughts can be limiting. However, once we take the time to take a step back, reflect and broaden our view of what is possible, we open ourselves to more of life’s possibilities. That is what possibility consciousness is and it requires remaining open to the most expansive ideas rather than limiting what is possible to what our limited view thinks is possible.
As with so much that is going on in the world, the safe rescue of the twelve boys and their coach provide us with a life lesson. We can cultivate a possibility consciousness and see life as filled with unlimited possibilities or not. However, when we see life in a more expansive way, we open ourselves to wonderful and, sometimes, previously unimaginable ways for the Divine to work through and as us. We allow something greater than ourselves to guide us as we make decisions leading to solutions that may have previously been thought to be unimaginable.
