It is our great fortune to have witnessed the personification of so many Truths in the life and achievements or Steve Jobs. His iconic legacy will be available for all to draw upon when illustrating Natural Law, the governing principles of Creation. His larger-than-life demonstration of The Power of Pure Potential (aka the Power within), The Power of Intention (focus), The Power of Self-Referral (not accepting conventional wisdom), The Power of Visualization (imagination), The Powers of Simplicity and Boldness (‘just do it’), The Power of Detachment (from fear, from the outcome, from the known) brought us closer to understanding that while human, we are also super-human. If we allow ourselves to seize these Powers, move out of the illusion of safety of our comfort zone and venture forth into the realization of our seemingly miraculous potential, we can, like Steve Jobs, achieve anything we can conceive and believe.
Jobs, sadly, also demonstrated the results of violating these Laws. Stories of his impertenance are sprinkled throughout accounts of his creative prowess. In addition to his micro-managing (controlling? autocratic?) leadership style, he was known to belittle people, seek revenge, and harbor grudges. Whether he was ignorant, defiant or disdainful of such fundamental Laws as The Power of Love, The Power of Attraction, The Power of Compassion, and The Power of Forgiveness, Steve Jobs has left us a few poignant examples of what happens when we believe we are the Power or that immutable Natural Laws don’t pertain to us. It is impossible to fool Mother Nature. We will always reap what we sow. Pumpkin seeds will never bring forth cherries. Imagine if he was able to weave the Power of Potential & The Power of Intention with The Powers of Love & Compassion and the Powers of Attraction & Purpose. He may have inspired the realize-ation of boundless Potential within those he employed. Empowering others motivated by an absolute trust in the Power of Love without any attachment to the outcome (e.g. not fearing that Knowledge or information is dangerous or belief that your investment in another may not pay returns) must buoy the leader/teacher exponentially. It is Law.
Additionally, had he chosen to empower and inspire rather than intimidate, the inescapable Law of Attraction is likely to have drawn far less toxicity to his life experience and perhaps the potential for disease encoded in his DNA could have remained un-real-ized, dormant. Nature does not compartmentalize; neither do we. It is impossible! We cannot have one kind of thought and a different kind of body. Your body will reflect, measurably, whether you are stressed, angry, grateful or loving, etc. Make sure that that you employ the Power of Love in all of your intentions, interactions and creations. The Law of Attraction says we receive back the energy we emit multiplied on all levels – physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Do you want back what you are giving out? How would you like it on steroids?
