Now that I thought more about this, and my past, I realized something.. I have the biggest challenge with power.
When I was still a very small child, I was truly loved, but my mom had very little power to back it up, to make me feel safe and all. And I felt it. And then she lost the little remainings of her power.
And I've ever since felt like I've been left with no power. No power at all. And I still got a lot of fears, and crippled self-esteem, as a sign of this.
When the pain becomes too fierce to ignore, it's hard not to face the truth.
Being aligned with truth is "easy" for most of us PD geeks, because the pain has made us feel it very vividly. It seems to me that this is why most of us are here. We've become aware, we've felt the pain, we've become aligned with truth.
I know many people who sure ain't completely happy with their lives, but they're not feeling ENOUGH PAIN to seek possibilities for growth.
Then again, I know people who are not feeling pain in any area, but are just already powerful (and perhaps loving) enough to have the courage to see where they need to grow.
I feel blessed for having this opportunity to find my power on my own. If you're in similar situation, I hope you do too. : )
