~ power and will ~

There is an electric quality when we exercise our power. We feel in command and control. We feel like we can impose our will on our world.

As long as we recognise our will and our power is most likely only going to work on ourselves, we will be content.

When we exercise power and control over others we find most often they push against our might. Not merely overtly, more likely covertly, so we only find out after the fact.

Reminders for ourselves about the profound and absolute truth regarding powerlessness to do with people, places and things may help.

Of course there are rare and few examples where anything connected with humanity can be described as an absolute truth, as most of our truths are merely belief we fashion into facts to suit ourselves.'Exponents of the selective truth'.
