The force

We all have an Achilles ankle. We all have some Kryptonite that shows up every now and then and takes away our super powers. We all can be hurt. We all can be overwhelmed with sadness, anxiety and pain.

Knowing that everyone is in the same position doesn’t make it one iota easier to handle when we feel bad. If we live long enough we find out that we can’t sidestep every single upset. We are going to get walloped every now and then in this life. What can we do? Just grin and bear it? NO!

There is a force within us, every single one of us, no exceptions, that is powerful beyond belief. Being in touch with this force is the key to life. This is the force that takes over when a crisis happens and we suddenly act faster than we can think. This is the force that holds our tongue or allows it to speak the perfect words. This is the force that whispers through our tears that yes, we can survive. This is the force that brings us to prayer or meditation or chanting when they weren’t options we were considering. This is the force that comforts us when no one is around.

That force is inside of each and every one of us and life’s greatest journey is the one that takes us to that realization. You are more powerful than you can ever imagine. A Ferrari is a powerful car but if we were not aware that it had more than its first gear we would be disappointed. Don’t be disappointed with life or with what life is bringing to you. Shift higher. Shift to more power. Shift to thoughts of of greater possibilities. Shift to a better attitude.

You understood the power of being an adult when you were young. Seize that power now. See the possibilities of a fresh, new beginning. Use the force within you to change your perspective. The force isn’t an addition to you. It is you.
