power - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
For aspirations of power, empathy is a disadvantage, and thus the development of a healthy prefrontal cortex is adversely impacted. Moreover, as both the centres for empathy and logic are required to work cooperatively for sound decision making, the current power-based system (rather than a love-nexus system) can never deliver sound governance to Earth. Only a social evolution from the money-nexus into a love-nexus based in true public service can achieve the peace and sustainability that has eluded us thus far.
The buzz from power is a lonely emotion when compared to the sense of responsibility that is born of loving protection.
They say that, "With great power comes great responsibility," but the same is true of love, and love is an antidote to corruption.
I will take the power from the unworthy so that I can surrender it. I am the one who could hold the ring of power and let it fall into the fire of the volcano. For this is the power of love, the greatest power of them all. I find my strength, grow in confidence and dominance, not for the sake of ego though it may appear the same, but to take a grip on the tip of the power triangle and flip it right over. I will become the most powerful so that I can become the lease powerful and bring in a new era of service and fairness for every nation, to feed every child and bring the world to song, to dance, to joy and compassion. So surrender or be practice for my aim, the arrows are already made.
One tentacle of power is the insulation from risk, one becomes unaccustomed to safety and comfort, then as a child who has not felt the cold in a long time, the temptation grows to do anything to keep the self safe. Yet love is the opposite, the willingness to sacrifice, to walk out into the cold if that is what is necessary. So beware of the insulating, the comfort that is shackles as privilege yet heaven when it is a universal high standard for all.
