Power is prevalent in society. It thrives upon the material energies produced. Yet there are degrees of power, and power is just as comfortable within a spiritual domain as is humility. For true power is the power to empower others.
It doesn't dominate - it lifts. It doesn't protect its greed: it patiently awaits until the receiver is able to share it.
The master becomes the servant as power empowers those beneath to raise themselves, and thus continue the Work.
