We all want to master power over our lives. We believe we have to search outside ourselves for it, but like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz, we’re willing to go on epic journeys to find it.
Power of healing. Power of forgiveness. Power of developing a stronger sense of self. Power of creating world peace. Power of finding light in the darkness of all that’s going on in the world.
We’re now at a crossroads of what is needed, rather than wanted in our world. It makes sense for us to head in a direction of deeper understanding of the world. It takes a great act of bravery to be authentically ‘us’ in a world that insists that we ‘do as we’re told’ according to our obvious traits. Demographics are our go-to for judgement.
The world is shifting. We were born with the capability, but have lived under a false sense of believing that our world is out of control or that we are helpless. A few people in charge hope for a lack of collective consciousness. The good news is there is a movement toward a collective consciousness that deeper thinking humans realize is the key to creating a healthier world.
Ego is as powerful as the emperor’s new clothes.
When superficial power hungry people want to control others, they insight fear and encourage division. They create chaos as a power move to control. We are so busy racing to the next thing, to a future event, a future goal, a perception of ‘better’ [stuff] being just around the corner, or worse, something horrible is just around the corner … we buy into the power hungry’s every demand.
I’ve been sitting in a place of mental solitude for a few years now. I’m an internal nomad, mentally searching for meaning in order to take back my own power. I am Dorothy. By staying present and conscious of my life, I realized, I’ve had the power all along.
As our awakening consciousness develops, the change also creates a storm of emotions. Shifting is change and changing causes vulnerabilities. The ‘new’ is actually a return to the ancient.
Our new focus is on cultivating more kindness and compassion. We’re focused on acceptance of ‘what is’ while we work on our self-transcendence. This is something we can do in the present moment. We’ve seen evidence of it in global meditation movements. In global unity movements.
Organic personal energy is the greatest power source.
We as a collective have an obligation to recognize our own personal responsibility in our power making decisions. We cultivate it with higher order thinking. We rise above the base response to immature actions. We become who we’re meant to be by acting on the internal mental connection to our source energy.
We stay present in our own lives. This is where we search first. Then, we set about making peace everywhere else. Our power is our home and we all know, there’s no place like home. It’s where the heart is.
