What do you think of when you hear the word “power”? Electricity? Physical Strength? Control? All of these things are moving and aimed outward.
There is power in stillness, too.
A spinning plate can’t hold water, but a cup can. Jumping and screaming won’t entice a runaway pet to come to you. Sparks and lightning can’t show you the right direction…but the tiny magnet in a compass can.
Inviting, enticing, asking, attracting, magnetizing, welcoming, meditation, inner wisdom, a quiet mind: These are powerful things too.
