There is Power, and there is power.
Power demands and is never satisfied. Power withholds and hoards. Power is convinced there is never enough. Power makes sure everyone knows it is in charge. Power makes others smaller and smaller even as it gets bigger and bigger. Power is scarcity.
power, on the other hand, is expansive. When it grows, everybody grows with it. It supports, shares, and waits. It comes underneath and lifts up. It gives energy, it creates space, and it moves with a spirit of we rather than me.
Power takes. power gives.
Power demands to be god. power makes space for God to be God.
When we are plugged in to Power, we clutch and grab, we scatter and flee. When we are plugged in to power, we open up and give away.
So what are you plugged into these days?
You get to choose.
