Its subtle patterns fascinate me, take my mind to far away, imagined places…
Power doesn’t have to be violent; it can be soft and gentle. It doesn’t have to be about domination; it can be about respect – for yourself and others. Tap into that source of inner power. Stripped of false associations, it is a beautiful thing to behold.
You can always go deeper, even if you think you’ve already learned a lot about something, specially in any creative endeavour. It becomes neccessary to stop all distractions and to fully listen to a particular voice that calls you from within. This may mean leaving things undone, focusing just on this one thing you’re trying to understand, explore, discover.
This kind of single-minded focus is sharp and powerful. It may not always seem correct to take such a strong stance, but it’s often the only way to get anything done. This is how you develop as a human being, this is how you remain true to yourself, this is how you honor your spirit. The rest can wait, at least for now.
Are you afraid?
What if you were immensely powerful? In such a state you would fear nothing but maybe one single thing… your own power. What is a nightmare? Turning your power against yourself. But what else can you do when you’re afraid? There has to be another way.
