We are moving rapidly into times of sovereign power and personal empowerment.  Choices are being made to determine if we are going to choose destruction and the negative path or are we going to choose to rebuild and create a world that supports all life and community.  Time to turn the inner lights on so that we see and more importantly know with clarity what needs to be done and how to do it. 

“Everything we do, everything we are, rests on our personal power. If we don’t have enough personal power the most magnificent piece of wisdom can be revealed to us and it won’t make a damn bit of difference.” Don Juan speaking to Carlos Castaneda

The importance of personal power is often misunderstood or undervalued on a spiritual path. Toltec Wisdom acknowledges this and much emphasis is placed upon 'stalking power'. It is not an exaggeration to say that much of the suffering and difficulties people have in life is directly due to a lack of personal power.

One common misperception people have is that power means that a person will harm others or be used for no good. It is true that power can corrupt when used by the ego, or what Toltecs call 'human form'. Here I am defining ego as that which promotes separateness from others and exclusiveness, instead of connectedness and inclusiveness. However, the same thing is true with many things in life. Money, for example, can be used for good, altruistic purposes, or for not so good things. Both money and power have been abused throughout history.
However, just because something can be used for both positive and negative things, you don't want to throw the baby out with the bath water. A man or woman of power has the ability to benefit the world and other humans. A person with little power will not have the same ability. The same is true for benefiting oneself.

Human beings have the capability to manifest and create their reality, for example. Many speak of using laws like the Law of Attraction to manifest what one desires. While this law is true, without personal power one's ability to manifest will be limited. A man or woman of power is able to create a life full of love and abundance for themselves, and their family. Many times the reason why a person suffers lack is because they lack personal power.

It is often said that a spiritual path is the most difficult thing you will ever do. Because of this it takes an incredible amount of personal power to walk it. Whether it is in your spiritual pursuits or in living a fulfilling life full of love and abundance, the more empowerment you have, the greater will your capability to achieve what you desire.

Abe you have cut right through to the truth of the matter with a fine edged insight...........it has to be personal..........and gratitude is the fastest way to increase vibration......

Right on Steve.

Any charity should always come through donation not the socialistic force or government. As the producers (vs. consumers)  of this world gain wisdom they will realize that wealth is not the end all be all thing that they've dreamed of. They will come from a westernized productive mindset to realize the more esoteric principles that govern all.  In short, they will learn to love their fellow man.

I think that we have been naively thinking in terms of love as we mostly focus on what we can understand of human love. If we were to glimpse the true light of Divine Love as some do in NDE's we would have a different understanding and expression of love.  We are told to have unconditional love yet still we battle with that as some are easier to love than others and some are not lovable at all.  So I think the love we aspire to is the invisible spiritual force of love that comes through our feelings that is always moving us into higher awareness of pure heart felt joy.  

I would imagine that human love is the lower aspect of Divine Love, and DL is pure vibrant atomic light that purify our thoughts and creates 'right' action through practical wisdom.  I say practical as the more wisdom we acquire the more practical we get or become.  The more DL that we allow to flow through us the more purposeful we are as we move into unity consciousness away from the lower self needs.  The higher vibrational states by default always has the lower needs met without thought.   All faster vibrational frequencies create like magic whatever it's needs are.  

The will is a strident force of purposeful energy that like a laser beam of intent has a force that creates without doubt.  But will power can never succeed over personal  power as one comes from the mind and the other is within the cellular structure.

That sounds right, that this personal power would also encompass the "will power" as in when we move into the more effortless plane it takes a helluva lot more than just will power.

 

So what is the force that drives it and how do we cultivate it? Is it love?

whether the Direction of the Manifestation  will be positive and Collective or negative and Personal

 

It's about the differences between History and Herstory. In the old Historical world, competition was valued as "good", and the personal value was seen as positive for all the capitalist reasons. Now that system has imploded, and we must move forward into Herstory, where cooperation is the new value, and from now on personal contributions must serve the collective in order to be any "good". This new Herstorical paradigm is not an endorsement of Marxism/communism/socialism...it is, simply put, the only way to survive as a species. We can either cooperate or kill each other, because as the population reaches seven billion this week, there is no more room for free range Darwinian ethics.

LOL,  I 've just read your first comment Sky, and you note the  use of will as a determining aid to get results  and a true positive use of our will.  In regards to Chris  wondering if will power equates to personal power opens up a different perspective as   will power can be likened to  using the emotional body, whereby personal power encompasses the totality of ones being all in alignment with the core elements of their divinity.....or something like that.

So true Seagypsy, and so often we wish it could all be done with someone else............

I certainly agree with Dr. Seuss - you've got to do/find/enjoy/know/discover, etc. by yourself.  Good article, Sun.  Thanks

Also Chris i doubt there can be any real formula as that may encourage a left brain perception instead of an intuitive right brain guidance.  Often formulas lead to dogma and formal structures that are not true for everyone, but may have been true to the originator of that idea.  Structures and formulas are disintegrating in quantum ways. 

I'd agree Sky, and that thought leads to personal responsibility for what we are creating in our now time as that will have a future outcome.  The hazard for many is that they do not recognize that their now is formed from past creations.  So  there is a dual now.......the one you are experiencing or reacting to,  and the one where your  present action is determining the future outcome.  Visually it can be seen as each foot standing now  in both now realities.    Hope that makes sense......lol

To me will power is the best way to lose at anything as we set ourselves up for a personal battle with our will and we always loose  - eventually.  

Personal power is an internal knowing that we have within all that we need.  It moves beyond trust and hope.  It connects  us to our intuition where all the answers are.  Intuition will lead us sometimes step by step. e.g you may not know why you feel to do something but in doing so it leads to what you are seeking, needing, wanting...etc.
