Is knowledge power? Well, that depends on what your definition of power and knowledge is.
Some people believe that power is having control over others, and although they may feel like they control others, in truth this in an illusion, for no other can take your power away from you without your permission, you must be a cooperative participant and allow it to happen. I’m unsure how believing you have the ability to make people feel inferior and miserable is a definition of power, but unfortunately, for some, it is.
When I speak of power, I’m never referring to believing you have power over others, the power I speak of is the power you have within you, that is consistent, reliable, and available to you in every moment, on all subjects that are important to you. Even if you aren’t aware of the Inner Guidance that’s available to you, that does not mean your Inner Being is not communicating with you. It means you are not aware of it and aren’t hearing it.
Why have we not been hearing our Inner Being?
Because we haven’t understood how that communication has been taking place. Our Inner Being or the Non-Physical part of us is communicating to us through our emotions. We have mistakenly thought our emotions are confirmation that whatever or whoever we’re observing when we feel negative emotion, is bad or doing something wrong, and because of this false belief, we’ll often try to control people’s behaviour so that we can feel better when we observe them. It doesn’t take to long to work out that doesn’t work. But what’s the alternative? To take control of your mind and know that you have the ability and choice to feel better about whatever it is you’re giving your attention to now. Not in 10 minutes, 10 days, 10 months or 10 years, right now!! You have the ability to feel a little better about what you’re thinking about right now, even if it’s only a slight improvement in how you’re feeling. Imagine if you make this small effort every time you find yourself in a not good feeling place, you can make some serious positive vibrational movement (positive emotional movement) in a short amount of time, and it doesn’t take long before this is reflected in your real life manifestations, for its like anything else in life, when you first start doing something new, it’s a little tricky but once you get the hang of it, it gets easier and easier. Yes, as you feel better and maintain that higher vibrational place, your manifestations must follow that improved feeling place. That’s how this Universe works. You are receiving that which you have put out through your vibrational offering (powerful focused thoughts and emotions). As you move to better feeling places on subjects that are important to you, you will be able to more easily access your Inner Guidance and create more of what you’re wanting in your life experience.
What about knowledge, is knowledge power?
That depends entirely on what knowledge you hold. Any knowledge you hold that prevents you from being happy cannot give you a feeling of having power in your life. But it can be an opportunity to either leave that knowledge out of the equation or gradually move to a better feeling place regarding it.
Knowledge that empowers you and makes you feel good is wonderful, whereas knowledge that disempowers you and makes you feel terrible is not good. Remember, as you think of anything you know or believe, your Inner Being is communicating to you and letting you know if you are moving in the direction of something you are wanting or not.
So, is knowledge power? Yes and no. If the knowledge you hold moves you closer to what you are wanting and feels good, yes. If the knowledge you hold moves you further from what you are wanting and feels bad, No.
Start paying particular attention to how you are feeling about things, for many of us have gotten so used to feeling a certain way about something it has become our normal way of feeling. If you want to know how you feel about something, focus on it, and this will give you an emotional feeling that will let you know where you are. It’s important to know where you are before you can move to where you are wanting to go, be kind to yourself while doing this and remember, we have all been doing the best we can based on what we’ve known, and when we know better, we can do better, and that’s what life is all about!
And so our journey continues….
