“Love is the real power. It’s the energy that cherishes. The more you work with that energy the more you will see how people respond naturally to it, and the more you will want to use it. It brings out your creativity and helps everyone around you flower. Your children, the people you work with — everyone blooms.”
This is a quote from Marion Woodman in the article “31 Ways of Looking at Power” in the September 2009 issue of O, The Oprah Magazine.
I came across this passage when I was feeling powerless and angry after someone slashed one of my car tires. I thought that this was a good reminder that wallowing in anger and thoughts of “Why Me?” is not constructive. Perhaps each one of us needs this reminder from time to time.
