"I came to understand that the greatest power we have in life is our ability to make simple, loving contact with other human beings".
Note: In order to better understand the following post, please read the previous post, "The Great Debate: Fate vs. Free Will".
The answer came to me while I was blow drying my hair.
If you think about it, many great inspirations have been received while the scientist, inventor, musician or writer was occupied with an activity, such as taking a shower or daydreaming. This temporarily blocks outside environmental influences in order to listen to ones inspiration, intuition or inner voice. In my case, I was simply trying to resolve the age old "trilemma" of how the Universe operates and our role within that process of existence.
The tipping point in the debate between Fate Vs. Free Will is the third option, Partnership. From competition to collaboration, we have now moved towards the realization that everything around us is interconnected and operates in a synergistic relationship. Synergy can be defined as the interaction of elements, which when combined, produce a total effect that is greater than the sum of the individual elements, contributions, etc...
In other words, when we function within either beliefs of predetermination or individual control, we suffer under the illusion of separation. When we join the two manners of being with Partnership, we connect with the triad of energy (three things becoming One) often referred to as the Higher Self.
Another limiting term for this unlimited way of Being is unconditional Love.
