Day 258: Realizing and Living my Utmost Potential - 2

Expanding on my previous post where I wrote about Principle 1: Realizing and Living my Utmost Potential, from
The Desteni of Living

"Seeing and realizing and living my utmost potential has become a foundational principle within and as which I stand, where I am no longer living for an idea, or a belief, or some knowledge, or for someone's expectation of my, or for a fantasy, or for the next moment of stimulation, entertainment, or preoccupation, but I am living for the discovery and fulfillment of the utmost potential that exists in me as Life. I have made the decision to take responsibility for my potential -- to no longer accept or allow any self definition that would justify accepting limitation of myself based on memories, self judgments, self beliefs, comparisons, desires, opinions, fears, assumptions, but to commit myself to push through and find my real potential of and as myself as life and then birth my potential into this world, through and as my life, through and as the actions I take in every moment of breath, where my actions will be one and equal with my utmost potential."

To specify the above statement from my previous post, I would say that simplistically what I've come to see about the word Potential, is that when thoughts, feelings, reactions, emotions, desires, fears, memories, self beliefs, judgments are influencing / directing me / defining me in terms of:

how I'm expressing something, 
the way I do something, 
how I'm applying myself within something, 
the goals I'm setting, 
what I decide to do or not do, 
how I'm using my time, 
what skills I make the decision to develop or not develop, 
how I'm valuing myself, 
what I tell myself I am capable of or not capable of, 
what I'm telling myself my interests are,
what I'm telling myself my responsibilities are or aren't
how I interact with others
the relationships I form with others -- 

then I am not in fact working with my actual Potential because in looking at thoughts, feelings, reactions, emotions, desires, fears, memories, self beliefs, judgments -- in terms of its nature, it is an experience that is being triggered - a reaction within me, that is defining who I am and what I do and how I do it and what I will or won't do -- not actually ME, making a real decision within standing as the clear Directive Principle of Me within taking into account what I Self Honestly see is possible for me to apply myself within.

So within Realizing and Living my Utmost Potential, I see that the fulfillment / Living of this principle can only come with Realizing, Seeing, and Stopping any and all points within me where I see I am  / have been accepting and allowing who I am / how I am / what I do / how I do it, to be defined on my behalf through the reactive nature of thoughts, feelings, and emotions, to within this be able to stand as / become the Directive Principle of myself within who I am, how I am, what I do and how I do it.

Because I mean, to really realize my utmost potential -- I must be influenced / defined by nothing - I must be able to see myself in absolute / utmost clarity - I must be able to decide who I am and how I am and what I do and how I do it - without anything moving in me that I did not make the directive decision to move - without any preprogrammed reaction of thought / feeling / emotion influencing me / being the directive principle of me in any way whatsoever.
