THE POWER OF YOU
God is within. I connect to the divine power in my soul and awaken an incredible source. I am aware of the good within and the good that I can do if I choose to take responsibility for the Light in me. It has always been there – now I see it.
We often think that because we are only one person, the good things we do can’t make that much of a difference in the world. We also use this excuse to justify our less-than-finer moments. The concept that one person can make great impact on the world sounds nice to hear, but it can be difficult to grasp.
To understand on a more practical level, we can look throughout history at two kinds of people. There are the people we label “the bad guys”: Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Osama Bin Laden; and there are the people we call “the good guys”: Mother Theresa, Martin Luther King, Jesus Christ. These are just a few examples.
Looking at these two lists, there should be no doubt that one person has within him or herself the power to influence billions.
What’s more, no matter which list they might be on, they were the same in their desire to affect the lives of countless people. The difference between them is that one group was fueled by selfish desires, while the other was driven by a relentless desire to share.
The truth is, we all have the power to affect the world – and whether we know it or not, we already do. Science has now proven what the kabbalists wrote about hundreds of years ago: There are no small actions. Everything we do has an energy intelligence that produces countless ripple effects.
With this knowledge, we can understand that we don’t need to be Mother Theresa for our actions to create vast change in the world, while also gaining a sense of the great responsibility we have to one another.
It is so important to know that you not only can, but you do make a difference.
Once we understand how much influence our actions truly carry, we can see the necessity of transforming our selfish desires into sharing ones, and in doing so we become one of the “good guys” committed to creating a better world.
