Power

“[The] will to power is the greatest sickness man has suffered from.  And all our educational systems, all our religions, all our cultures and societies are in absolute support of this sickness.  Everybody wants his child to be the greatest in the world.  Listen to mothers talking about their children, as if they have all given birth to Alexander the Great, Ivan the Terrible, Joseph Stalin, Ronald Reagan… Billions of people are rushing toward power.  One has to understand that this tremendous urge to power is arising from an emptiness within you.  A man who is not power-oriented is fulfilled, contented, at ease, at home as he is.  His very being is an immense gratitude to existence; nothing more is to be asked.  Whatever has been given to you, you had never asked for.  It is a sheer gift out of the abundance of existence.” ~ Osho, Fame, Fortune, and Ambition

“Greed is an effort to stuff yourself with something —it may be sex, it may be food, it may be money, it may be power.  Greed is the fear of inner emptiness.  One is afraid of being empty, and one wants somehow to possess more and more things.  One wants to go on stuffing things inside so one can forget one’s emptiness.  But to forget one’s emptiness is to forget one’s real self.  To forget one’s emptiness is to forget the way to god.  To forget one’s emptiness is the most stupid act in the world that a man is capable of.” ~ Osho, Fame, Fortune, and Ambition

Emotional Poison in Relationships — What It Is and How To Stop The Cycle.

Emotional Poison in Relationships. What It Is and How To Stop The Cycle.

Emotional poison is created by our reaction to what we consider injustice.  Some wounds will heal, others will become infected with more and more poison.  Once we are full of emotional poison, we have the need to release it, and we practice releasing the poison by sending it to someone else.  How do we do this?  By hooking that person’s attention.

Let’s take an example of an ordinary couple.  For whatever reason, the wife is mad.  She has a lot of emotional poison from an injustice that comes from her husband.  The husband is not home, but she remembers that injustice and the poison is growing inside.  When the husband comes home, the first thing she wants to do is hook his attention because once she hooks his attention, all the poison can go to her husband and she can feel the relief.  As soon as she tells him how bad he is, how stupid or unfair he is, that poison she has inside her is transferred to the husband.

The connection between gratitude and power.

Picture Quote Text:

“You cannot exercise much power without gratitude because it is gratitude that keeps you connected with power. The creative power within us makes us into the image of that to which we give our attention. The grateful mind is constantly fixed upon the best, therefore it will receive the best.” ~ Wallace Wattles, The Science of Getting Rich

“Do not pay too much attention to fame, power, or money. Some day you will meet a person who cares for none of these, and then you will know how poor you are.” ~ Rudyard Kipling

“Greatness lies, not in being strong, but in the right using of strength; and strength is not used rightly when it serves only to carry a man above his fellows for his own solitary glory. He is the greatest whose strength carries up the most hearts by the attraction of his own.” ~ Henry Ward Beecher
