Just Because You Can Does Not Mean That You Should

Just Because You Can Does Not Mean That You Should

How many times have we opened the box to discovery and looked around at others in an almost mischievous way that asks, should I? Will I get away with this?

Should we at this point bring to mind the guidance that gently says, just because you can does not mean that you should? There are consequences for everything that we do. There are some things that we should pull back our power from and let be.

When we break the Natural Law of things we must be aware of the reason for that law being there in the first place. If we make a choice that is ignorant of this then it is our small self that has decided to exert a smallness of power and control over what is directly in front of us. If we are fully aware of the consequences but go ahead anything then it is a willful arrogance to suppose that we know better and that is our right to mess with the Natural Law of Source and all things.

Such choices weave themselves throughout our life here accumulating in many moments of moving within to Source or being moved without from external sources.

With great power comes great responsibility.

These moments occur at a personal level right up to a global level. You know in your gut when you fall upon a course of thinking or action that is possible but that it cannot be taken without terrible consequences that go against the grain. To take a thing so far from its natural purpose is painful, unhealthy and ultimately destructive.

Simply just ask the question, ‘Should I?’ and then patiently listen for the answer from your heart.

On a personal level you may take yourself to levels that go against your natural self or inner voice. You create a schism that moves you far from self and Source. The distortion and pain resulting from this separation manifests as dis-ease and distress. Your world shakes until you fall apart and once again you are able to see the core of You shining through. All that is false and not meant to be drops away. You are shaken to the core and you are left with the truth of your story as it was meant to be and not how you willfully created in an Ego driven way. The truth will out and the natural way of things will begin to once again reassemble.

Such rebirths are possible so long as you stopped before straying too far away from the natural truth of things. Blindly and stubbornly going too far along the wrong path may result in destruction and may indeed mean the end of the physical that you came into whilst here in this world. When you come to the end of an unnatural path, far from original purpose, then you may seek a way out rather than be able to see the alternatives that are always there for all to seek and hold on to. There are some paths that we need to burn back from and retrace our steps, perhaps with help from others.

With free choice comes the need to know when to act and when not to, to listen to that inner voice that guides you effortlessly along the communication lines of Source. There is a vital importance to know that power can be misused. We need to know the consequences and follow nature as it was meant to be. If it feels right then follow, but if a knot forms within and without chances are it is not meant to manifest in the natural scheme of things.

This moves me on to a global and community level as we, in some of the groups that form here, have the potential for great arrogance and power hungry misuse of each other and our beautiful world. In a world where consequences be damned and where we seek to control and pervert the Natural Laws, we travel much too closely to that path of destruction that comes at the end of all false journeys.

Group dynamics operate in such ways that those who have power, access to resources and the need to subvert natural order in order to maintain such controls, act as a pack placed above the natural ways of the world. They collectively think that they know better and seek to protect a sick way of being. Consequences are calculated in the profit margin and here we glide effortlessly to wards the paths of ultimate destruction of all that know and love.

Global healing is required Now and we all have the growing awareness to do so.

If you would like examples of Pandora’s box opening on a global level then I can call to mind a cause that I have been involved in, namely the opposition of fracking. We are running out of fossil fuels and seek to exploit and pollute the land to extract precious resources by any means humanly possible. Someone somewhere was given a problem, came up with a theory and then a practice to use chemicals to extract those fossil fuels from the rocks beneath us. Simply because one uses their mind to subvert the natural laws to their own purpose does not make it right or wise to do so. Intelligence ceases to be of service when what it creates brings with it such destruction. The balance sheet simply does not tally.

Mother Earth has answered back in the polluting of precious water supplies, fires and earthquakes. Those with interests in the profit margins ignore all of these consequences but there is a surge in those who have awakened who fight against this manmade process. This is only one example of the arrogance and closed heartedness of man. If you look you will find many more.

Just because you can does not mean that you should.

We must bear the personal responsibility to act in ways that flow gently with Natural Laws of all things. We are in Truth divinely abundant and have all that we need to survive and thrive. When the natural way of things is obstructed or diverted from its true path then we have willfully created a personal or global sickness that will only recover when we once again listen to nature and Source. It is not the easy road but one where we will All survive and prosper.

Margins of life will blossom as profit balances fade into the background. We need to grow into our bodies and act more in line with the divinely powerful beings that we are. Spirit has to be allowed to act through us and direct every action through love and compassion for self and environment. This is simple if we slow down, breathe, relax and pour ourselves into every situation, feeling our way through.

Relinquish the false sense of control that we have accumulated and learn to adapt, move naturally and effortlessly and work with all of creation rather than against it. All is changeable, fit for natural purpose, dynamic and simply transparent. We must create a world where we can see the glistening core of beautiful Source driven creation rather than the ugly face of man’s Ego mind.

Working with the Natural Laws requires an open, creative and constructive mind. This is what we all need. This is what the world needs.


To help us I have written this series of ‘I Am’ affirmations for us to nudge us towards the path of the inner light. You use the ‘I Am’ to weave this Truth, this Divine energy inexorably with yours. Speak this energy as you release your prayer and intention into the world and universe. The vocalisation of the affirmation and prayer acts as a powerful tuning fork for the energies to connect with and begin their Divine healing work.

I Am Love,

I Am Peace,

I Am Joy,

I Am Forgiveness,

I am Compassion,

I Am Thankful,

I Am Beautiful expression of the Divine,

I Am an embodiment of Source,

I Am governed by the Natural Laws of this universe and honour this sacred relationship,

I remain mindful of the Power that flows within me and listen to Source as I create,

I bring blessings to this world and universe to restore Truth, balance, peace and love,

With these words I embrace and release this Divine Power.
