America cannot be stronger if we do not express our fullest potential, in everything we think, say and do. Our fullest potential!! This is Value Priority #5 in the Six Fix.
Now, it is not unusual, at all, to find our country touting the importance of expressing our fullest potential in the area of money— making and garnering the most money possible. Nor, is it unusual, at all, to find our country touting the importance of expressing our fullest potential in the area of scientific and technological, or military development.
But, aside from these areas, America stays spiritually unhealthy. Why? First, and foremost, America has distorted the Six Fix Priority of Values, and failed to organize our nation upon Life-Centered Values, health, peace and freedom, the first three prior to FULLNESS of POTENTIAL, and upon which Fullness of Potential is based.
For America to become spiritually healthy we must have the correct Life-Centered priorities, and then, based upon this, express the full potential in everything. Everything!
We must express our full potential in education. In the quality of families and our home life. In the imagination and vibrancy of our children. We must express our full potential in the arts, and in music. We must express our full potential in the quality of food, and a healthy life-embracing lifestyle. We must express our full potential in the redemptive power of our religions and sacred philosophies.
There is a full potential which is implanted in each of us. Religious people might call that God’s Spirit, or, perhaps our “soul”. In a country like ours which is dedicated to the freedom of individuality, to express and expand and embrace all Life, the expression of each and every person’s full potential is a national priority.
A stronger America is like a chain forged of individual human beings. When each individual human being is not expressing his/her full potential, then, the chain has a weak link, and will not bind us together, as one nation.
I am writing this book, The Six Fix, to place the Value Priorities and Relationship Priorities (the two aspects of Life-Centered Priorities), as the spiritual foundation to rebuilding a stronger America. These are the fundamental values upon which our nation was founded, though, because of history, some of the more subtle aspects of the Natural Law that the Enlightenment Philosophers based their democratic vision upon, have been lost. The Six Fix strives to reframe these, for our particular place in history.
This is a new era. Spiritual healthcare— which is way beyond Church State issues— is the answer. We must have America on a strong spiritual foundation, and then, the soil will be there for the expression of the fullest potential, not just of each and every individual, but, also, the fullest potential for democratic representational government, which, although it is a only in existence for mere 200 years or so, carries the Torch of Possibility for all humankind.
Can we be true to ourselves, as a world leader, and not express our fullest potential? Do you see what would be lost, if we don’t make the expression of full potential, in everything we think, say and do, our national agenda?
In everything you think say do, seek GOOD. Seek the expression of Value Priority # 5, your fullest potential!!!!
Bring it into your personal life. Bring it into your family life, and in your community. Expressing our fullest potential is the very nature of spiritual health.
That’s true American STRENGTH.
