Un-limit your power
There is an old story about a farmer who finds a pumpkin that has just started to develop. To protect the little pumpkin against the elements, he slips it inside a jug. Then he goes on his way and forgets about it. When harvest time comes, the pumpkin has grown only as large as the jug. The jug that once protected it, eventually limits its growth.
Many people are in the same situation as the pumpkin.
To find protection, they have embraced sheltering beliefs about who they are, what they can do, and what they can become. For a time these beliefs offer comfort and protection, but beliefs, particularly limiting beliefs, soon lose their usefulness. Limiting beliefs form a jug. It is a person's own considerations that limit his or her potential. Once the "truth" of a limiting belief has been realized, a person stops growing.
The harsh reality is that when the pumpkin in the jug stops growing, it starts to rot. The mother vine, following its divine nature, shifts its life-giving energy to the fruits that are still able to grow...
...Sometimes life will break your jug for you. An unexpected promotion will demand that you assume responsibilities beyond your comfort level, or a personal tragedy will have you coping with things that you didn't believe you could handle. Suddenly you are out of the jug, growing again.
...Adaptability is wise. Plan to use a belief as long as it serves you, but when it starts to limit growth, reconsider. Maybe what you thought was impossible can actually be achieved. Limiting your own power with inflexible beliefs is unwise.
The value of the Avatar Materials is that they enable you to break your own jug before you begin to rot.
How big, how powerful, how successful can you grow? You will never know the answer if you don't break your jug.
