And finally, a word about 'power'.....
THE POWER TO RESTORE WELLBEING AND TO MAKE LIFE WONDERFUL
I long for a world where the power to restore wellbeing and to make life wonderful for ourselves and others is the only power we are ever engaged in (power with). I sense it is my vocation to contribute what I can to this awakening consciousness in as many practical ways as is possible within the limits of all I have been through myself. For now, it's clear that based on a predominant belief in scarcity we are at war with all life (not just human) in order to 'get our needs met'. We have inherited a paradigm where we either submit to others (power under) or fight with others (power over). Our task is for all of us to learn the skill of self-regulation and self-response-ability so that we enter an internal space where creative strategies become possible.
When we grow the language and awareness that all actions are an attempt to meet a need, it empowers us to live in a place of 'I have choice' in how I respond to any given situation and can always enter into a dialogue about needs. The meeting place in the field of 'no right, no wrong'.
