Dear friend,

Power gets a bad rap. As it is so often misused, that is easy to understand. But Power is an aspect of God. Power aligned with right action is ... well powerful! Don't be afraid to connect with Power along with Love, Peace, Wisdom, Joy and the other aspects of God.

Putting ourselves in the hands of God, we can safely use power to direct our wills in the right direction or to stand strong against ignorance and hate. Indeed, getting in touch with this divine aspect of ourselves may help us better understand the nature of the Creator.

As always, we need to be discriminating. Hopefully, Power is balanced by Wisdom and by Love. There is some risk of our projecting too much power around something we believe is what God wants from us. It can be a little too easy to think we know better than others do what God wants. Please read what Swami Kriyananda wrote about Power below.

Developing our connection to the Divine includes developing dharmic Power.
