Strength and power are conceptual siblings.
Strength is perceptivity, both in breadth and depth.
Power is a twofold expression of willmind. The psychological aspect of power is efficacy in doing. The social aspect of power is in other people’s responses to an individual’s psychological power. Power influences others.
Animals instantly sense the aura of others. This is an intuitive aspect of mind perception (mentalizing) from field emission. English psychologists Geoffrey Beattie & Heather Shovelton observed, “We make instant social judgments about people. These judgments, quick and without reflection, may be extremely important for subsequent social interaction.”
Social power acts magnetically in polarizing people based upon their own strength. Many people appreciate wisdom and will follow those with strength. Contrastingly, insecure people may feel intimidated by those with inner strength. Power is advantageous in barefacedly confirming, via feedback, other people’s strength.
Contrast social power to force, which is imposing one’s will on others. The dynamics and the consequences of power versus force are profound. Whereas power is constructive, force generates negative repercussions.
What is within emanates.
You express the quality of your dobe by your doing.
The powerless react. The powerful act.
Those in iğnorance are in thrall to their nattermind. Their expressions of will are weakened by this servitude. Instead of freely creating their lives, those in iğnorance expend much energy reacting to their biological urges.
By contrast, those with higher awareness exercise their will in creative ways. The more elevated the awareness, the more acting and less reacting.
The powerless are artful. The powerful are artless.
Deceived by their nattermind and yet bloated with belief, the powerless consider deceit natural. They practice their cunning with stratagems. Lacking power, the powerless resort to force.
Having gotten past inner illusions, those with power are straightforward. They act directly, without guile.
The powerless are partial. The powerful are impartial.
Those without power exercise their biases. Lacking awareness, they hold to their blinkered beliefs.
Those with power are open-minded. They are always on the lookout for fresh information and opportunities without preconception. Those in higher awareness sense an infinity of beautiful nuance throughout Nature.
The powerless make holes. The powerful fill holes.
Those lacking power perceive myopically, and so readily tear the fabric of the systems in which they participate. By contrast, those with holistic clarity fill gaps, thereby improving efficiency and efficacy. Only the powerful can build and sustain productive systems.
The wasteful chaos that characterizes plutocratic capitalism is a political-economic system of iğnorance, its use of force emblematic.
The powerless grasp. The powerful loosen.
In thrall to nattermind, which engenders a sense of scarcity and fear of loss, those lacking power clutch at their attachments. They react by rote.
Contrastingly, those in higher consciousness are naturally carefree. They accept that things come and go. Power has its full expression in spontaneity, responsive to the current situation.
The powerless strive. The powerful relax.
Those lacking power run themselves down with their exertions. Their aspirations tax them.
By contrast, those with power work apace, with full concentration to the task at hand. Their balanced dobe keeps them relaxed, as work is play.
The powerless take credit. The powerful take debt.
Those lacking power seek recognition. They like to claim credit for accomplishments.
Those with power feel no need to take credit. They appreciate team efforts for the bonding it instills in its members, knowing that social harmony is important to productivity. When the work is done, those with power are content. Meanwhile, other team members feel indebted to the contribution that the powerful made.
