Spot on! Well said! many thanks for your perspective
The more vulnerable I am the more powerful I am because there is NOTHING for anybody else to grab onto to hold over my head as a threat. I cannot be controlled if I have nothing to hide. A group cannot be controlled if they have nothing hidden, an organization cannot be controlled if they are completely open. Information is power, well………… protected information is power ……… well, actually …. priviledged information is control.
This may sound Pie-in-the Sky and it IS! AAAANND the Pie and the Sky are real. This hiding stuff and organizational (any organization or company) game playing is just that – a game. A VERY fun game that I also LOVE playing, but I think the point of the game is to wake up from it – it becomes a much more fun game once it is only a game and I no longer take it so seriously.
In truth nothing is hidden anyway – all is transparency – I only think I am hiding stuff and so I blind/blind myself. I give away my power by hiding anything about who I am, what I think or believe, and how I have acted. I speak of personal power here, not power in terms of controlling someone else. Real power has no need to control. Only scared people need to control… OK so I am scared sometimes too – but I am working on it.
Interesting.. it shows once again that it is such a hard thing to cling to the idea that we are “just” “limited” human beings.
Not knowing and expierincing our true nature ( we are divine unlimited awareness ) forces us to “mirco-manage” our “problem loaden” lives. The problem adressed here is lack of vulnerability and the solution might be developing gratitude.
Ok. But what if we finally knew -KNEW- who we really are? This unlimited space.. stillness.. joy.. not afraid of feeling feelings whatever they might be and letting them return to space again. Couldn´t that be the ultimate solution? Losing interest in our thoughts about the seemingly unfolding story and just feel, breathe, be there as .. unlimited divine space?
Finally allowing the movements and feelings that come with the dream of our lives..
It has been said so many times, in much better ways than in this comment.. when will we finally hear, see..?
(Probably at very different moments of our life-stories). But maybe you can hear it … NOW?
