what is real power? (1 of 2)

Posted on: October 20, 2011

I’ve been really interested for the past several months with the idea of “power.” It’s rife with misunderstandings and negative connotations… and so much potential. For some, power equates to “power over” – where one person must win out over others. As the media, both alternative and mainstream, regularly depicts both abuses and atrocities by those who possess power, this is of course a common misunderstanding, But it’s not true power.

True power does not arise from oppressing others or through fights. Speaking with power does not mean anyone else is being diminished or controlled. And it doesn’t mean that you have to Push to make your Point. It also does not mean you are trying to influence or control others – or please them.

Next: the real deal.

I think of true power as the state of being wholly who you are – one strong focused signal rather than a diminished unfocused signal (like static).

Absolutely – great comment! It’s about how we fully direct our energy, and bring as much as possible into consciousness. More to come.
