A lack of a sense of self in Being and It´s worth. Anything can corrupt when one feels that they have to HAVE in order to feel worthy.

Consider power first as a "choice"


That is a Choice between the Consciousness-directed awareness and the Ego-directed awareness.

Retrace your steps, you are mistaken. Acknowledge that your selfish agenda has muddied your judgment.

Our intent is simple. Discovery with others, and ultimately to broaden the range of relevant interpretations about life on earth.

If this displeases you, we apologize.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This is very profound in my opinion! The lack of self worth or self esteem CAUSES many to look outside of one´s self to fill the void. Thus, people use "things" like money or position or other people to get that sense of self worth. And when that is spent, one´s worth and/or power diminishes, and the whole cycle must repeat itself. This would be equal to gaining earthly or Mammon powers in contrast to spiritual, everlasting power. Power in this human sense is fleeting and false, although it may work it´s magic for a time. The very fact that it SEEMS to work keeps people tied to the illusion, and keeps us from realizing our spiritual nature and the true power residing within, imho.

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?"

Re: POWER
CHOICE = POWER

The more and more I look within, the more and more I believe the above to be positively true. Those who have a greater amount of wealth or prestige over the masses simply have more choices available to them.

Example:
If you are the owner of a mom & pop hardware store your choices are usually limited to your locality while a CEO of a worldwide hardware franchise can choose to affect entire societies.

Power only corrupts when your perspective is limited and you fail to understand the Rules and Laws that govern all of creation. As a CEO from the above example, running smaller stores out of business and then inflating your prices might seem like a good strategy ($$$profit$$$)... but the negative effects can be devastatingly widespread. Even though you might attain enormous profits for yourself and your company you end up hurting a great majority of people.

These choices usually compound themselves as well. In the above example these kind of CEOs would generally warrant dirt-cheap production costs (which generally means lower quality items), steady price inflation, and squeezing every last penny out of anything deemed to be "unnecessary."

Those kind of CEOs have forgotten the face of their Father. They take their profit and place it on the great pedestal (a false idol). They begin to only experience gratitude and love when they are "profiting" from a situation. As you might see, when you force gratitude and love to be all but defunct from you life you will experience the emptiness and the soullessness you have created.

It works in opposite ways as well. Instead of narrowing your experience of gratitude and love down to only a specific event, they will start to encompass ALL events when you make a choice with that very intention. Love should exude from everywhere, not just when you´re "profiting" from a situation.

However... just because you do not have as many choices as the inanely rich does not mean you do not have choice at all. Though some would try to convince you otherwise (these ones enjoy having choice over others a bit too much IMHO), you ALWAYS have choice. And thus, you have power.

CHOICE = POWER

Re: POWER
Thank you QuantumHost. (^_^)

You are correct of course! I worry, and it is unnecessary of me to do so. I suppose I still need to work on being more aware of my choices. So many, it seems, are made without me ever knowing that I have made them in the first place.


One word, eh? I might be old fashioned, but the only word that I can think of that would hold power over all is L_O_V_E. I would say that every single human being is, at their center, motivated by love. Their love can be misplaced, at times, but it is truly love nonetheless.

But just because love exists doesn´t necessarily mean we consciously (or even unconsciously) choose to have an abundance of it in our lives. So while I feel that love is the driving force and motivation behind everything (or should be, hehe) I would have to renig and say that the one word which holds power over everyone is...

Guess what I´m going to say? (^_-)

How does FORCE relate to POWER in you?

As it is understood presently we cannot apply FORCE without it being applied to self. So to POWER many more times than not personally get us "nowhere". There are exceptions to this. As you to may find.
