The only chance of success is to trust in your own power.
It is not within my power to refuse the journey of life regardless of the nature of my fears or the depth of my selflessness, for the definitions of journey and life are indistinguishably synonymous. I can however sufficiently inhibit them and amply fight them to the point that I have accepted the journey, but the journey is now solely defined as my effort to not forsake the journey. Power is the ability to control people or things. So, unless you learn to control your own self first, how would you be able to influence anybody else? Power is a game, and in games you do not judge your opponents by their intentions but by the effects of their actions. The obstinacy on which power is based is never so fragile as in the moment of its triumph.
I have often noticed that these things, which obsess me, neither bother nor impress other people even slightly. There is no greater power and support you can give someone than to look them in the eye, and with sincerity/conviction say, ‘I believe in you. No, I am not powerful nor do I wish to be, for it is God using my weakness that makes me potent and I would never wish to surrender that. To the young man a kind of worship of some power outside himself is essential. one has strength and enthusiasm. Ordinary points of bravery, the synchronistic moments we all engage in, and the transformative power of minding our voices, forgiving, trusting, and learning to love ourselves and our lives, while we wait. The power within us is immeasurable strength. Any power that doesn’t give you benefit is not a power.
The love that I believe in is something that goes beyond the physical aspects of this world. The love that I believe is one that extends its energy and power through the beautiful souls that I encounter along the way, a love that can be seen in the eyes of a little dog or in the confusion of a cute lost cat who wants to be worshiped like a Goddess. This kind of love goes through a divine crafting of a person’s inner self, through personal experience and thousands of years of tears and strength, that can only be seen in the familiar eyes of old souls, the eyes that recognize each other even after long times of separation, the eyes that find themselves familiar with places they have probably been to before, but that nevertheless bring great memories with every visit. Don’t you see? You created this forest! It is your imagination that has given these trees the water to grow. It is your hopes that blazed a path through it. It is your dreams that give it the magic. All of this was created from within you!
Having a positive attitude gives you the power to uplift, the power to create change, the power to motivate, the power to inspire, the power to influence, the power to cultivate happiness, and the list goes on. Positive energy radiates from every word you share to a magnitude that can not be measured on scale. The vibrations he sends your way are received and absorbed into the very core of your existence. You have to realize that modern power, is nothing but a concept in the mind of the one who’s under the power. And once you realize this, you realize that authority is indeed an illusion. If I burn the candles, it means not only giving you light. It means to show you the fire which I have inside. And this is the unwritten history of man, his unseen, negative accomplishment, his power to do without gratification for himself provided there is something great, something into which his being, and all beings can go. He does not need meaning as long as such intensity has scope. Because then it is self-evident; it is meaning.
I am a man, and as foolish and weak as most men; if I have had an advantage over fellow mankind, it is that I have known this of myself, and have therefore known their weaknesses, and never presumed to find much more strength and wisdom in myself than I found in another. It was one of the sources of my power, that knowledge. You are born with the power to change your life by simply changing your thoughts. The greatest power one human being can exert over others is to control their perceptions of reality, and infringe on the integrity and individuality of their world. So often our power lies not in ourselves, but in how we help others find their own strength. When evil altars are invoked, great destinies are altered.
You have the power to make your own choices. Everything in this world depends upon you, its all about how you want to spend your life, once you understand this fact you can come out of illusions of life, just ask yourself what you want. Your heart will definitely tell you the truth, and then, who stops you? Always use your powers to create positive experiences for yourself and others. We cannot know love if we remain unable to surrender our attachment to power. Power is the gem of necessity. Without observing power, identity remains undiscovered.
There is only one attraction, one law, one power and that is the power of love.
