Internal Power

The ability/desire to adapt to a situation by directing power internally to modify ourselves is an equally effective form of power. This is much more than just the primitive wealth-driven act of consuming external stimuli without thought; in fact, internally directed change is the hardest, most challenging, rewarding and cathartic element of power. It occurs when we are able to stand back from an event, look at the situation objectively, and then modify ourselves accordingly. It’s opening a third eye to any situation that draws people to us and can earn us respect. People with great inner power can see themselves as others see them. This is the inner strength of the soul-seeker, the aesthetic, the renouncer, the monk, the priest, the nun, the shaman, and even the warrior and the martyr. Some strong leaders who have demonstrated internal power are Jesus, Martin Luther King, the Buddha, Hegel, Gandhi, and Socrates.

In the Torah We decreed for them a life for a life, an eye for an eye, a nose for a nose, an ear for an ear, a tooth for a tooth, and a wound for a wound. But if a man charitably forbears from retaliation, his remission shall atone for him. Transgressors are those that do not judge in accordance with Allah’s revelations.

The Holy Koran, v 45
