Am I Enough? Part II

Updated: Jan 10, 2021

In The Book of Knowing and Worth, we learn that the physical plane runs by different rules than the spiritual plane or thought plane. The physical plane is ruled by the material, and to transform or manipulate it, we must use force. The spiritual plane has no material and is instead ruled by energy or power.


First, let’s discuss force. In physics, force is defined by Merriam-Webster Collegiate Dictionary as “strength or energy exerted or brought to bear : cause of motion or change : active power.” In this definition, active power is used to describe force, but this type of power is also created by force.

We use our senses to observe how matter reacts with matter, and we know how to control and manipulate form as we see fit. Material becomes what “matters,” and it becomes that which is of worth or value. It is even used to define the worth of individuals as in the term “net worth” which defines how much material someone possesses or is in control of. Those of us who are very good at accumulating or manipulating such things or using force to perform great feats are often defined as powerful. Perhaps we should use the word forceful instead, because in spiritual terms, power means something different which we will get to in a moment.

Because of our collective viewpoint on matter, of which we are in agreement, we are taught that in order to get something we must go out and get it—that we must do and work and create in action. Each of these things are acts of force. The entrepreneurial world teaches that you must hustle 60 to 80 hours a week, invest capital, and compete for market share to get your piece of the pie. We all do this at varying degrees because we are physical beings.

Now, let’s discuss power. From a spiritual perspective, power isn’t derived from the transformation of matter—such as burning fuel to create electricity—it is accessed through the field. This field has many names such as quantum field, source field, consciousness field, the energetic field, universal field of intelligence, and many others. They all describe the same thing, a universal place where thoughts, ideas and inspiration come from. This concept is ubiquitous among the world’s cultures. For example, in the Hindu traditions, the flow of energy through chakras or energy centers in the body comes from Brahman, which is defined as the supreme existence or absolute reality.

Energy in this field cannot be created by force nor can it be accessed through force, which is matter acting upon matter. When we express our heartfelt thoughts and intentions through articulation, affirmation, meditation or prayer, we access this field. As we are in the process of thinking continually, we are always accessing the field at a certain frequency or vibration equal to our thinking.

“You like to put the cart before the horse. You like to think that if you are not running after something, you are not doing. In fact, when you are knowing yourself in your true worth—”I know who I am, I know what I am, I know how I serve”—you claim dominion, and what you call to you in your authority is in accordance with the worth that you hold.”

-The Guides through Paul Selig, The Book of Knowing and Worth (pg 88)

What this means is that the quality of that which is called forth or brought forward in our physical experience is dependent upon the perception of our worth. If we see ourselves as being unworthy of that which we ask, it is not in accord. If we know ourselves in truth, then we are worthy and our expressions (think, feel, act) will reflect that in our intention. Our reward is commensurate with the worth that we agree to.

“What is that thing that you see so far beyond you that you may never hold? We will tell you what it is. It is you in your authority as the one who may choose her own dominion, his own dominion.

-The Guides through Paul Selig, The Book of Knowing and Worth (pg 88)

Know that you are enough, choose in your knowing, and so shall it be.
