Love is True Power
I have encountered several spiritual people who believe that power is a bad thing. This is probably because they have observed Ego in the world of spirituality, and associated the individual's personality (their Ego/Personality Self) with power. They may also have difficulties understanding their own power, and might be afraid of it. Power over others is an expression of insecurity within one's self. Power over others is not an expression of real power at all. It is an expression of fear on the part of the person exerting their will. When one is fearless, he/she has no desire to exert his/her will over anyone else. It is only when one is in the grips of fear or insecurity, either consciously or subconsciously, that they attempt to control any given situation by exerting their will over others. Fear creates attachment, and the result is the desire for control. Control is the illusion that camouflages its self as balance. When one is truly fearless, they are the living example for balance, love and harmony.
The Buddhists contemplate the death of loved ones, and meditate in cemeteries so that they can give up the biggest attachment of them all, the attachment to life. Once you have given up the attachment to life, you can truly begin to live, as opposed to merely survive. The Buddhist practice detachment to life by contemplating death. This is not to say that one must be suicidal. It means that one must strip away the illusions of their existence and arrive at their basic self. It is when your smoke, and mirror self (Ego/Personality Self) gives up the fight, and begins to relax that you come into your personal power. True personal power is when you arrive at a place within yourself where you can gain or lose everything in your outside world, and not be affected by it on the inside. When you always know that you are one with the almighty, and that knowingness is complete, and unshakable. It is called "God Realization."
There are many bullies in this world (people who attempt to control others through fear based consciousness). There are the obvious signs with those that try to physically push you around - they are Physical Bullies. There are the ones who try to get into your head, and alter your reality to one which is in fear - they are the Mental Bullies. There are the ones who attempt to control you using emotional means - these are the Emotional Bullies. There are Verbal Bullies, who put you down, and try to make you feel "Less - than worthy." There are the ones who use their wealth to push you around in order to feel superior to you. There are the ones who use their knowledge to make you feel insignificant, and then there is one of the most devastating groups of them all, the "Poor Me" Bullies. The "Poor Me" Bullies are quite different than the rest, although they may have some commonalities with the bullies who draw you in through underhanded methods, the poor me bullies look so helpless that you feel compelled to assist them in whatever way you can. You actually never realize that they are bullies until it is far too late to turn back. They use Guilt as their weapon. There is an old joke which goes something like this - How does a Jewish Mom turn off the light ? "O.K. - so I'll sit in the dark" ! Guilt is one of the most Dis-Empowering weapons which a bully can wield.
By the time you've realized that you are being taken advantage of, you are already driving them to the store because they are afraid to drive or don't have a car, and you are buying them groceries because if they don't have a car then they can't get to work, and if they can't get to work then they don't have any money, and since they don't have any money, they can't pay their bills on time, or buy their own cigarettes and alcohol (un-necessities). You are building them a website, but they can't operate a computer so you end up being their computer expert, and this just keeps going on, and on like this until one day you wake up from your "I'm just helping a friend in need - Denial," and you realize that the reason they can't do anything on their own is because it is far easier to get someone else who is willing to do it all for them. At this point it is really you, who needs the help, and not them. You are afraid that if you don't help this person, that they will fall through the cracks in life, and be swallowed-up. If "I don't help him/her, then who will." Well, lets see - I know, how about themselves? Do you really think that they will stop living if you were not in their life? How do you suppose they managed all of these years before they met you - they leached off of other "Co-Dependant" people, that's how. There is a spiritual name for energy suckers like these - they are called "Energy Vampires." They keep taking until there is nothing left to take, and then they get righteously mad at you for not giving any more.
All of these are examples of fearful, and insecure people who are attempting to exert their will over you in order to try to feel better about themselves by deflating you, and taking away your Personal Power. The truth is that no one can "Take your Personal Power" away from you, unless you give it to them. To not give away your personal power is not the same thing as being selfish, or uncaring. The only real way to be truly helpful in this world is to come from a place of personal power, also known as unconditional love, understanding and knowingness. All of this is another way of saying that you need a level of detached conscious awareness (Equanimity). This can only truly be had by experiencing yourself from the perspective of your Inner Truth (God-Self). Personal Power is true power. It can only be experienced through unconditional love. The avenue most traveled to achieve unconditional love is through the grace of God. Compassion is also a key to unconditional love. Suffering, and experiencing the end of one's own rope (contemplation of death) are some avenues to compassion. There are two main types of compassion taught in this world. The most generally accepted is the Christian version of compassion in which you do for others before you do for yourself. The other type is far less accepted, but never-the-less it is an advanced level understanding, it is the Zen Buddhist version of compassion. Yona believes in a balance of these two, a middle path if you will.
In the Zen Buddhist Martial Arts system of Karate Do called Shorinji Ryu (a form of Shaolin Temple Stlye of Okanowan Karate which was imported from the Shaolin province of China), Yona was taught by a former Buddhist Priest that in Christian compassion, when you throw a punch at your opponent, you intentionally miss his face in order to avoid injury, but in the Zen Buddhist version of compassion, you intentionally hit him (without malice, and without intent to injure) in order for your partner to learn how to affectively block the attack.
The concept here is that if you intentionally always miss your opponent's face or body when attacking, that they will develop a false sense of security, and they will wrongly believe that they are able to affectively defend themselves. If they are in a real fight, they will be shocked to find that they are ill equiped to deal with their opponent, but if you strike them when you attack (not hard enought to injure them severely), then they will be more likely to learn how to block the attack properly. If a person who is trained in this Zen Buddhist version of martial arts were to be attacked, they would be much better equiped to handle life's daily challenges than a person who avoids the slight pain of training. This training is not so much intended as it would seem, in order to merely learn to fight, but rather to learn how to deal with life from a more fearless and detached perspective. Zen Buddhism is all about being in the "Now," being in this moment - every moment. This is called "Mushin," another name for this "Present Time" consciousness is Equanimity. True Power can only be achieved by experiencing your God-Self in the "Now," through Equanimity.
The other ingredient in this equation is the concept of "Loving Boundaries." Whoever gets sucked into one of the above situations is usually suffering from the absence of loving boundaries, due to a lack of self worth. They don't realize that they are a radiant, and beautiful creative being. They are not in touch with their Inner Truth. Boundaries are extremely important in life. People want to know how to interact with you. Boundaries give people a structure through which they can gauge that interaction. You would not act the same way with a regular person as you would with the Queen of England, would you? The reason is that we automatically offer a level of respect, which accompanies people of stature that we do not always give to people we are cozy with. I am not suggesting that this is good or bad. I am saying that we naturally, and automatically tend to respect the boundaries of people whom we regard as being "Powerful."
A Loving Boundary is something that you cannot really put a finger on in the physical sense, it is quite palpable however. That is to say that you can feel the Aura of a person who radiates Personal Power (is radiating Love), and you are most likely going to react to them differently than a person who is attempting to control you through fear based consciousness.
May God Shower Endless Love, Blessings and Joy Upon You Always, Yona Jyotiananda.
