Re: POWER
It is the lesson they signed up for.
Knowingly or unknowingly.

But how do you define power? TRUE power?

Re: POWER
Yes, I think one would have to define the term Power. Love, as an example has awesome Power. Then we have ill gotten money that when used on the competitive stage yields corrupt Power. Whereas, money received from the Creative mind produces Power that acts as a blessing to All.

probably because it is so much work for our short lifespan. Think of all the damn meetings, blech!

We are all the same when you are on the slab, naked after life has gone.

Riches and power are all transient and pathetically adored by many for whatever reason.

Re: POWER
Our perception of power is the ability to create and to destroy. Most humans desire a selfish kind of power, but some only want the power to help others. This act of love is rewarded with the ability to do so.

Re: POWER
good morning friend.

Power in my opinion is an element that undergoes the process of internal alchemy.

It has been my observation that the humanistic side of power, when overdeveloped has the greatest potential of becoming golden...i see this in my paintings...the paintings with the greatest contrast almost always turn out to be the masterpieces.

"The more sublime aspects of life get eclipsed."

Do you not agree that this is so because of lack of discipline to expand some domains and minimize others? As in personal responsibility?

We shrivel to accept that each life is already lost simply because of general social decay?

Do we each need to find, our field of daisies?

Re: POWER
Most of the time, when I see people who have alot of power in general, I see people who believe they are doing the right thing, but it ends up being too easy to take advantage of.

Power can give them things they couldnīt have before. It can let them do things most people canīt do. From what Iīve seen, power is most heavily influenced by emotion and beliefs rather than logic and rationality. For human beings, it is easy for your emotions to affect your daily life. You have a bad day at work for example, and you may take it out on your family. The same can be said when using their power.

Having said that, I personally hope I never obtain power, but I believe that having acknowledged these facts, one may be better prepared if they have power.

I am a flawed individual..

Just my two cents.

---------------------

There have been periods in my life, unlike now where, I had more temporal power.

IT WAS A LOT OF FREAKIN WORK!

Had to babysit my career, had to babysit my perks, property, wealth...

I lost my real identity to finally crash and burn. In fact it should have killed my sorry butt. ALMOST DID!

I finally just walked away. I mean left it all. GONE!

Camped in the mountains for a season, piddled around with odd jobs and started over with a much different slant.

"Having said that, I personally hope I never obtain power, but I believe that having acknowledged these facts, one may be better prepared if they have power."

It has been said, that real power is more about the ethics (intent) of its use.

Corruption of intent, is a human invention.

Do not be wary of building such skills. Acquire some form of influence (some domain) practice application of its influence to do good. Select for larger and larger domains. This may lead you to the heavenly kingdom in peace...

"I finally just walked away."

We speculate that you walked away from the temporal power only to gain a far deeper "creator power." As you observed the cost of self pursuit, intersecting with all other life paths, the intersections became filled with endless amounts friction.

True power has no friction, no gravity.

Often we hear you speak in that way... it is empowering for many.

Thank you for sharing your most personal thoughts... they are most excellent.

Re: POWER
I would hope that if I ever had power that I would only use it for good. But what if my definition of good isnīt the same as another persons definition of what is good?

In the end, though, I suppose our conscience is there for that perpose. To treat your fellow humans as you would want to be treated. And (in my opinion) treat the earth you live on the same way as well.

Re: POWER
Acts of power are here each day... every soul makes a choice (intent) to either influence, convince or tell another what to think.

Is not the greatest form of power... the power to allow something to unfold for another... nested in a limitless patient nest, of selfless love?

Do we treat each other like this?
Do we treat our spouses like this?
Do we treat our children like this?
Do we treat our fellow man like this?

Would this not be a demonstration of an "ultimate power?"

No what might that be?

What is REAL Power?

Some will say, it is , control of another, or others.....

But I say to you it is īElectrical in its Nature" The real power is ...Power itself!

Consider power first as a "choice," range and potential to be discovered over time.

Understand the nourishment of a Tomato Plant... you may then produce fruit in any domain at will.

"But I say to you it is ´Electrical in its Nature" The real power is ...Power itself!"

Power really only exist as an interpretation and observance of some kind of phenomenological domain.

Power Interpretation - A way to mobilize potential, to produce a designed outcome.

Observational - People observe "change." This is an organization of a potential (seen or unseen elementally).

Where would each of you like to have more "power?"

To do this, must you be clearer about what it is, before it can become a force for real change in your life?

Examples?
