Power is a force of nature, like electricity; an energy that can be manipulated, absorbed and abused. Every living thing holds power and gives power away. It can make you strong or weak, give you freedom or keep you enslaved. It is a force for good, offering the way to change. Or it can be a force for ill, leaving the way stale and unchanging… Power is never something to be used by one person in isolation. It should always be a mutual exchange of equal energy – of give and take – that leads to freedom, fairness, equality, peace and justice. In my mind’s eye I see a perfectly balanced scale that once tipped gives way to Karma.
