It’s 3AM and you feel like crap. Time to bring out your superpowers. You actually have three superpowers. Yet you’re probably not using them or even conscious that you have these superpowers. But you have them all the same. The first power is the ability to move your attention. The second is the power to grant significance. The third is the power to assign causation. Most people project their attention out to other people, into the past or future, and spend their entire lives through the filter of other people or the non-Now. You scatter and weaken yourself by seeking approval from others, thinking about what they are thinking of you, trying to understand their motivation, or wanting something to happen. These are all acts of giving away your energy and neutralizing your power. You are depositing spiritual energy into people or ideas or memories; things you don’t have control over. Seeking authority outside yourself means you have implicitly given someone else (or some idea or event) authority over you; whether you intended to or not, you have given them power; you have granted them dominion over you. Your power of love and healing is within. It is your essential nature. Humans are social animals which means that you co-create your reality with others so it can be scary to remove this power from others. But, paradoxically, by removing this power from others you deepen your connection with them.
