What is a super?
Do you recall all of those hero movies and tv shows you watched as a child, or teenager? Maybe you’re like me, and you still watch them! Well, supers aren’t just the heroes. They are the villains too. Supers are any being that acknowledges their inner power, and manifests it in any reality they see fit for themselves.
After all, not all villains were born evil. In fact, life probably happened to them, and maybe their only problem was the protagonist of the story.
Super-men and super-women are pretty complicated. Most of them were born with their powers dormant, lived an entire life away from their natural divine state, and opened the doors of true power by facing their darkest times. Whether or not they became the protagonist or antagonist of someone’s story, the world of super beings acknowledges that being a super starts far from living a super life.
We are all born with a potential to fulfill. We become supers; as we are not typically born supers.
“What about the kids with super abilities to learn, remember, predict, etc.?”
Childhood magic exists! That means, when you are a child, your powers become a part of you, if ignited early. However, due to societal structure, most of us kill away our childhood magic by “realizing” what is real and what is not. Think about imaginary friends, for example. You’re telling me that your child(self) really made up the existence of non-physical beings with their own personality that talk and play and feel like us? Hmm. To each their own.
It would be biased of me to say that only those of the “good side” rise and find themselves. In reality, once people find their power, they figure out what battles are worth fighting. That is usually based on a past that one either had to let go of, or ignite thereafter. The sense of “goodness” in a way can be debated. Pagans are often antagonized for their varying perceptions of life. Even the “heroes” of the stories become the bad guys in the eyes of many!
So how does one become a super?
Yin, yang, light, dark and so on! We have a long term relationship with the polar forces that influence the minds of humankind. One is not solely bad while the other solely good. These forces are just ways to help us find our path. Once you come to realize that you need them both to find yourself, you can find your inner power by means of breaking the social structure of what it means to be the law abiding you of society.
Look at super man for example! Or shall I say Kent Clark? This guy had an office job, until he realized just how awesome his role in life was. And he broke a lot of rules! The X-Men Crew, all varying in ages and self-enlightenment, were very aware of how much they didn’t fit in (even in their family life). Poison Ivy…was a Doctor! And the list goes on!
So…What makes you so normal, that you can’t step out of your comfort zone and find the power within?
Oh Yes! I almost forgot! Are you a Super?
I don’t know whether or not you are a super! That is an answer that only you can provide, because gaining power all begins with self-empowerment.
