The need to be small
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate, our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.” – Marianne Williamson
And I personally think that is because of the ego’s deep inner need to feel bad, sad, small, and not powerful. This is very sneaky on the egos part because ironically this move is very egotistical, full of itself, grandiose, and powerful. And as Brad Yates asks, “Who is that serving?” (Then there is Dr. Phil, “Does this work for you?”)
And fearing being too powerful appears to be in relation to others as well, “There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.” - Marianne Williamson. So, not being empowered is something I do for somebody else huh? Therefore we all walk around being small and powerless. No wonder then we “need” power that is outside of ourselves like a power company or gas for our cars! No wonder we are “dependant” on the outside world, verses being independent and empowered.
We are reaching a point (or have reached) where “Our power is within,” “I am equally empowered with all,” or even “We are One” are not just New Age words and ideas/ideals, but is holographically a reality right now by having the courage to embrace our own Divine-Empowered-Whole-Self in this present moment.
No one else can do this for us. No one else can save us from our own choice of feeling powerless (or having less power than someone else).
Perhaps, this is what BMH was pointing to when she was saying our “connection is broken?” In addition to the connection to our Spirit being broken, the connection to our personal power is also broken, for this is really the same thing. And for any feelings out there that say there is only one power and that is God, in a balanced Wholeness by definition an individual’s personal power automatically means everybody has power as well. For me this is what I see when I hear the word “empowerment.”
In addition to “All for one and one for all,” I add “All is one and one is all.”
