What Is Power?

 "Power gives life and energy..." - David R. Hawkins

I would like to start this blog by exploring the definition of Power.   

The word power can mean many things to many people, but for our purposes, I am going to define Power by illuminating its qualities and contrasting them with the qualities of force. To do this, I will rely heavily upon the insights of psychiatrist and best-selling author David R. Hawkins.

  1. Power always supports life and energy while force takes these things away.
  2. Power uplifts, force tears down.
  3. Power doesn't move against anything, force always moves against something.
  4. Power is complete, force is incomplete.
  5. Power makes no demands and needs nothing; force constantly consumes and is insatiable.
  6. Power and compassion go together; force and judgment (of self and others) go together.
If you spend just a minute or two contemplating these statements of Power, I believe you will begin to see where you are allowing Power to work in your life and where you are not. One of the crucial keys to bettering ourselves is to become more aware of ourselves and our behaviors and why we behave the way we do.

Because Power always uplifts, learning to embrace Power will uplift you!

What areas of your life could use a little Power today?

Welcome to The Power Blog

 "We change the world not by what we say or do but as a consequence of what we have become!" - David R. Hawkins

Hello, and welcome to "The Power Blog". This is a forum dedicated to the exploration of Power in its truest and most authentic form. This blog is inspired by my own journey into the soul and the discovery that so many truths I had learned through years of experience were set to words by world-renowned psychiatrist, lecturer, and author David R. Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D. in his seminal book "Power vs. Force".  

It is my intent to provide a platform for self-discovery and offer a place to explore provocative insights and wisdom. I welcome comments, thoughts, and ideas from all so long as they are honoring and respectful to all. It is my belief that in doing this, we will find the world a slightly better place than before we arrived.

In our exploration of Power, I/we will:

  1. Provide Practical Insights: Offering practical insights and strategies on how to apply the principle of power in our daily lives, enabling us to approach challenges with greater wisdom and effectiveness.
  2. Encourage Community Interaction: Building an interactive community where readers can share experiences and insights, promoting growth and learning through shared wisdom.
  3. Guest Contributions: It is my hope to feature guest contributions from time to time from scholars, spiritual leaders, and individuals who have successfully harnessed the Power principle in various aspects of their lives.
My hope is that you will find this blog a beneficial tool as you journey in your own personal growth and transformation. The Power Blog is about viewing Power from a perspective of peace, sustainability, and true success. Together, we will learn to walk in Power, transcend the limitations of force, and unlock all our true potentials.

Welcome to The Power Blog!
