To feel our true power takes courage.
Not the kind of courage you’d think you would need.
You need the courage to feel your heart.
Power, like truth, without compassion can be cruel. Yet the real power that is beyond force lies in our ability to come face-to-face with our own soul.
Most people think of the soul as something only light and loving. Yet something as deep and complex as our soul holds so much more. It holds our darkness, as much as our light.
To face that darkness takes real power, real inner strength, a real commitment to know oneself. That is the truest form of courage there is.
And from that comes true strength.
