Stepping Forward in Power
What is power? To the world you created in your imagination, power is the ability to assert your will over another person or the environment itself. Everything in this world that claims to be true is actually the opposite of what is really true. The world’s ideas of power is in reality the definition of powerlessness, simply because it is based upon a false foundation: that you can decrease another person’s power and, in doing so, increase your own. In reality, decreasing another person’s power is the same as decreasing your own. Therefore, the opposite must also be true: increasing another person’s power increases yours. Give everything to everything. You are here to be truly happy, and that will only happen as you make others happy. If you want love, give love and you will have love. Give love with out discretion to everyone.
