Excerpt from Oneness: Our Divine Destiny, Chapter 10
by Amorah Quan Yin
Sovereignty means that you are your own ruler or master.
There is no one above you. You only answer to yourself. We are all sovereign beings of light that are equal. You do not need a guru or anyone to tell you what to do. You have it all inside yourself. Whatever you choose, you are the chooser.
At this special time on earth we are moving toward our mastery and full enlightenment. You do not get there by relying on others. Can you imagine being at “heaven’s gate” and being asked why you should get in? You reply, “Well, I was a disciple of (whomever) and I did everything he/she told me to. ” I think they would say, “Rejected. Go back.”
Many people have this type of co-dependent reliance on others. It could be a marriage partner, a guru, a spiritual teacher, someone who wrote a book, a close friend. These people do not trust their inner knowing and they live in self-doubt and irresponsibility. They always try to do what others say or recommend, so they do not have to become self-reliant. But how can you become enlightened and move toward mastery that way? Mastery means that you have become the master unto yourself, with no superiors. Mastery is sovereignty in action 24/7.
If you live in a way that makes you give away authority to others, you are still the chooser. It is just a very bad choice. You are here to learn to actively become your own master in everything. All answers you need are inside you. All of them . . .
Power is not an issue about controlling other people or situations. It is about being in your inner power and trusting yourself and your inner guidance.
However, if you never allow yourself to follow inner guidance and you never trust yourself, you are the one who chooses that. You are still the master over your destiny, no matter whether you choose wisely or from the negative ego self. Even if you choose to follow someone else, you are one who chooses. No one else ever controls your life and your choices. Only you do.
What a glorious reality. You are the master of your fate whether you realize it or not! If you do not speak your truth, you make that choice. Someone else may try to intimidate you or make you afraid, but you are the one who chooses to allow this to be your reality. It does not ever matter what another person does. It matters only whether you allow that to control your life or not.
