"Power is not to be sought
or seized.
One doesn't get it--
One already has it.
One needs only to become
more aware of it
internally."

-- J.C. High Eagle

Even the smallest things in life
have power.
Therefore,
size does not indicate
nor dictate
one's powerfulness,
rather one's ability
to exercise
power.

All power is illusion
until manifested into the world.
Power is neither good nor bad,
positive or negative,
constructive or destructive.
It is how it is used
that determines it's value,
or quality
in life.

Power
is a self-created, perceived illusion
that causes one to exhibit nervousness,
sometimes fear,
intimidation,
accompanying discomfort,
hesitation,
and formality.

However, power
in and of itself,
is powerless,
has no meaning,
no life,
unless given
acknowledgment
and acceptance.

Power does not
make right.
Weaker force may succumb
to superior force,
but according to divine law,
does not alter or change
its truth;
does not lose identity,
or character.

The only true power is
spiritual power.
And, being of the highest,
it can overrule
all ego power,
perceived or assumed.

Spiritual power
is never manifested into the world
to dominate
or to control.
Being of truth,
it manifests only truth
in its own likeness.

Spiritual energy
mixed with desire
yields spiritual power.
One's amount of spiritual power
is limited only by
one's degree of desire
or drive of
spiritual energy.

Position, status,
authority,
dominance,
are all illusive products
of man's creation,
and interfere with spiritual power.
All are blocks to the utilization
of spiritual power.

Spiritual power
mixes and blends,
Ego power separates,
divides,
never mixes.
Feeling separate,
ego power never knows unity.

Spiritual power
is revealed
by how it is expressed.

Only ego attempts
to determine,
define or
stereotype it,
thus blocks it.

Spiritual power
is seen through
eyes clear,
free of the dimming
cataracts
of ego.

Ego power
is only invented.
Spiritual power
is only discovered.

native american,american indian culture,american indian customs

Ego is perceived power.
Only perceived power
manipulates,
dominates.
Only spiritual power allows freedom
through reality,
through choice.

native american,american indian culture,american indian customs

Dreams are perceived power,
ego conceived,
cast in fanciful desires
that may never bear fruit.
Visions are spiritual power
brought to the finite,
from the infinite
to blossom forth.

These are some of the Teachings of POWER. Wisdoms uncovered in my own journey path.
So live, too, your life in a way that you may discover the rest! Aho! . . . .
