Friday Philosophy…Power

We are all infinitely powerful beings. We may forget this truth, because we think power means having control, or that things always go our way. Power runs deeper than that: it comes from being miraculous and magical creations. We transcend time, and we are filled with an incredible capacity for faith and love and hope and sorrow. We are powerful.

Here’s your power boost for a Friday.

“Be not the slave of your own past – plunge into the sublime seas, dive deep, and swim far, so you shall come back with new self-respect, with new power, and with an advanced experience that shall explain and overlook the old.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

“She is free in her wildness, she is a wanderess, a drop of free water. She knows nothing of borders and cares nothing for rules or customs. ‘Time’ for her isn’t something to fight against. Her life flows clean, with passion, like fresh water.” ~ Roman Payne

“The eye through which I see God is the same eye through which God sees me; my eye and God’s eye are one eye, one seeing, one knowing, one love.” ~ Meister Eckhart

“You gotta stop wearing your wishbone where your backbone oughtta be.” ~ Elizabeth Gilbert

“Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.” ~ Brene Brown

“Fear begets fear. Power begets power. I willed myself to beget power, and it wasn’t long before I actually wasn’t afraid.” ~ Cheryl Strayed

Happy Friday. Blessings to you all.

Never give up.

  1. This so resonates with me! It’s easy to forget your own power sometimes. To allow someone else to determine or control things by being reactive. At present, I definitely need to “stop wearing my wishbone where my backbone oughtta be” 😀
    thanks for your words!
