Gain power over yourself. Because people trying to control and gain power over you are ‘asleep’ they are unaware of what they are doing. They behave from imagination and emotions, not reality. There is nothing you can do to change or help them, what you can do is be there for yourself and ensure that they don’t rob you of your power, because that’s what they’re trying to do. They’re trying to fill the void inside themselves with the power that they see in you, which is essentially stealing your power.
Simply observe it and do nothing.
Gain Money, Gain Power
Money is a way to gain power and it frees you from the worry of not having enough. As you become aware that money is important because it increases your power, you will also understand that having a need for approval from others is dis-empowering.
How do people gain Power over others
Typically women seek power, they tend to seek their own power advantage through a man. Therefore, they use men for one of two things, either to enhance their power through his power, or to use him as some form of a servant to put them on a pedestal and fawn around them.
Generally a man seeks to demonstrate his power through overpowering other men and displaying his assets of power over them. For example, a nice car, a mansion, or a yacht, all evoke envy. Women are simply sexual releases, reproduction tools, and display items.
Both men and women gain power through lies, cheating and stealing.
So how do I gain Power?
People who are empowered do not need to use others. They have themselves and understanding. To be empowered is to be in pleasure and as you increase your power, so you increase your pleasure.
You still get pain in life because pain is a necessary part of life, but pleasures can be incremental with power. So ultimately, money is power, money is the will to life, money is your desire to have power.
There are many ways to gain power, through money, influence, trading, a business, fame, and I am sure you can think of more here. Even the professed New Age guru desires money and power, they just try to cover it up through manipulation.
Why Desire is Good
Desire is the only thing that can excite your emotions, mind, and body. Without desire you would be a lifeless thing not even bothering to eat or perform the most basic functions necessary for life. Every cell in your body is driven by desire, the most fundamental desire is to continue living and the most absolute way to enhance your life is to have the resources that give you power, with humans that is money and sex.
Power and POWER
We can find many ways to achieve power, yet the only power that is of lasting value is the one you have within yourself that has no connection with the outside world.
This work can be exhausting when you make a breakthrough, like any form of training. But the exchange of power for POWER when you have a breakthrough empowers you. It may drains you temporarily, because the effort you have expended in achieving this breakthrough has used physical energy. This energy can be regained and is worth losing a little of this power to gain a big POWER.
