When we are looking for Power coming from our conditioning (whether social, religious, or shaped by personal feelings of worthlessness), we actually diminish our True Powerful selves.
It's like putting paper bags on top of candles to make lanterns, and protect them from the wind.
We want to ensure that they glow in the night. Yet paper bag also dims the candle, diminishing its brightness, and limiting its power.
The truth is, we don't need to use any " paper bags" to feel better and safe. We are always important, special and worth. Just because we exist, we are a special gift to everyone and everything else. Only while hiding under "paper bags" , we can't fully shine, and so we believe ourselves to be limited, insignificant and small. We wish you happy shining today! :) :)
