The potential of a higher being is in each of us. Some, however, may never reach their full potential. The higher power is a sense of oneness with yourself and your universe. It is the joining of energies from your heart, body, and soul to use in a positive manner. It is understanding and acceptance. It is spiritual enlightenment. Once you use these effortlessly in your every day life, then you have reached your higher power.
