What’s Your Superpower? – part 1October 20, 2008
If you have ever watched the Disney/Pixar movie, The Incredibles you might relate to the idea that we all have our own set of superpowers. For most of us, life parallels the movie in that we hide our true nature because we are afraid of ridicule, judgment and not fitting in.
In the movie, at one time, there were Superheroes all over the place, being true to their power and knowing exactly what to do in each situation. They were completely true to themselves and in their willingness and courage to be true to themselves, they made the world a better place for everyone.
Then, after a series of disasters where many people would have died (and didn’t) the consciousness shifted and normal people who saw themselves as “less than” decided to file multiple lawsuits which cost the government millions in legal fees. This caused the government to create a protection program to hide the identities of the superheroes and forced them all to go into hiding.
Through the years, the superheroes freely used their superpowers only in private settings and when in public settings, they used their powers in dysfunctional ways. They made every effort to hide their true identities out of fear of being discovered for who they really were.
