Being strong is not about strength.
Being strong does not mean we are domineering.
Being strong is not about being forceful.
Being strong is about something far more powerful.
True strength comes from deep inside ourselves.
Strength is an intimate connection to our souls.
Strength is the power that comes from seeing ourselves clearly.
Strength is the knowing that we are the creators of our world through our choices and our intentions.
We are strong when we make conscious decisions in our lives.
We are strong when we refrain from using our strength.
And we are the strongest when we allow ourselves to be the most vulnerable.
True strength is the will to exercise our power as a force for good.
Might only makes right when the might is used to uplift and support.
It is easy to use our muscles to hurt another.
It is easy to use intimidation to control another.
These are signs of weakness, not strength.
It is far harder and more difficult to be a gentle giant than to be a bully.
The world does not need more cowards hiding behind masks of power.
The world needs more people who have the courage and strength to be true, honest, and authentic.
Real strength comes from being a real person.
