Inner Journey: PERSONAL POWER
“The deep root of failure in our lives is to think, ‘Oh how useless and powerless I am.’ It is essential to think strongly and forcefully, ‘I can do it,’ without boasting or fretting.”
— Dalai Lama
Angeles Arrien says that whether we are male or female, we need to develop three kinds of power. People who hold these three powers cannot be ignored.
- Power of presence – Being really present in each moment
- Power of communication – Speaking my truth
- Power of position – Being willing to take a stand
“A man’s true state of power and riches is to be in himself.”
— Henry Ward Beecher
“We are no longer puppets being manipulated by outside powerful forces; we become the powerful force ourselves.”
— Leo Buscaglia

Women and Men
“The sexes in each species of beings are always true equivalents – equals but not identicals.”
-Antoinette Brown Blackwell, The Sexes Throughout Nature (1875)
Isn’t it great that we’re not identical? We complement each other. It’s the yin and yang, the shiva and shakti, not opposites but an energetic combination of elements. We each do our part in sustaining the species. We’re here with each other, and for each other.
