22-288 Power

Today’s Mandala

“The most exquisite paradox…
as soon as you give it all up,
you can have it all. 
As long as you want power,
you can’t have it.
The minute you don’t want power,
you’ll have more
than you ever dreamed possible.”

— Ram Dass

“Power is the faculty or capacity to act,
the strength and potency
to accomplish something.
It is the vital energy
to make choices and decisions.
It also includes the capacity
to overcome deeply embedded habits
and to cultivate higher,
more effective ones.”

— Stephen R. Covey

“To create power is like a magnet,
this is true because this creative power
operates like a magnet.
Give it a strong clear picture
of what you want
and this creative power starts to work
magnetizing conditions about you —
attracting to you things, resources,
opportunities, circumstances
and even the people you need,
to help bring to pass
in your outer life
what you have pictured.”

— Claude M. Bristol

Today’s MotD reminds us that we are far more powerful than we realize and by power we mean our inner power. The power that fires us up to make things happen. The power to stand up for ourselves. The power to overcome the greatest of obstacles (especially internal ones) should we so decide to do so.

Our challenge becomes our willingness to tap into, embrace, and make positive use of our Inner Power. On her site, Gabby Bernstein offers 5 ways to awaken our hidden power. Well worth the read especially if any of us are struggling with creating a more solid connection to our inner power. Also helpful is Dr. Bob Wright‘s post entitled: 8 Steps to Tap Into your Personal Power.

“Knowing others is intelligence;
knowing yourself is true wisdom.
Mastering others is strength,
mastering yourself is true power.”

— Lao-Tzu
