Why are you a power man-whore?
1:We may seek power to accomplish a magical task. The preceding replies addressed this very well. (Read Lark's bio - a good woman to listen to).
2:We may seek power because we feel insubstantial - like a smoke image that could blow away in the wind There could be an issue of something draining our energy, or a lack of being grounded could feel that way and be mistaken as a lack of power.
3:We may desire to wrap ourselves in power like a cloak so people will notice us. There may be some need to heal emotional wounds or simply develop emotional maturity and security.
4:We may have had experiences in which we felt totally powerless and, often without understanding why, feel compelled to seek all the power we can get. This doesn't apply only to magical power, it can be relational/political power as well, or wealth if we perceive money as power, or any other form of power.
There may be a hundred reasons to seek power. I only bring it up because examining our motives can help us clarify our questions and thus bring us closer to the answers we need.
I propose a thought - experiment:
Imagine you had all the power you want and more. The power of a Merlin, of a Christ, of a god. What would you do with it? What would your life look like? What kind of man would you become? How would you interact with the world and the people around you?
Some people believe there is only energy and intention, power and purpose. From such a perspective there is never a lack of power, but if we would set our purpose or intention well we must begin to listen to what one writer called, "The secret that sits in the center and knows."
Be Happy and Well
