Power

With Presidents Day approaching, I’ve chosen to cover the subject of Power,the sixth of the 16 indicators of couples compatibilty I am exploring in these blogs.If we truly open up to a heartfelt connection, there is no way we can avoid exposing our vulnerabilities. By doing so we equanimously hand our partner the power to choose whether to heal, support, ignore,or cause us harm by using this knowledge. It is no less endangering to ourselves when we choose another to act in a position of power for us ; as we do with with any elected or chosen leaders:political, spiritual, or otherwise. We willingly entrust this personal power every time we receive assistance from those in healing/medical services, sometimes with our teachers and mentors, and often with family and friends. I have a personal aversion to power that I hope to grow out of, but it stems from the awareness of the responsibility that power brings. Being born on the tail end of the baby boomer years, I’ve seen the repercussions that both men and women can experience when the myth of the “white knight” is promulgated. Certainly either sex should feel they can ask assistance of a champion if in distress. I would just like to see fewer of us choosing not to strive at all to be our own champions,or on the flip side, decide we know what’s best for the challenged and rush in to fix/change a situation without waiting to be asked or enquiring how best we can assist. I’m much more comfortable with the native-american hoop of horizontal equality than the pyramidal structure of a hierarchy. On the circle facing one another hidden agendas are no longer cloaked, the armor drops, and we all have the potential to become white knights together.

About dreamingmoon

I, Aurora Dreaming Moon am a Dreamer, Sister, Lover, Mother, Grandmother and sometime Writer, Poet, Artist, Musician...who at the age of 11 made my first conscious choice to seek the path of Truth by throwing a yarrow stick reading for my youthfully petulant demand of : "Tell me the purpose of life now or I'm out of here !" The spirits in all their wisdom and humour responded in kind with the complete changing hexagram : Ch'ien to K'un which I interpreted to mean "...a complete understanding of the universe ". Thus appropriately chastised, though laughingly mollified and defeated in my attempt at an easy way out, I was lovingly set back on this never ending journey we call life. I am still trying to accomplish my assignment :) What you'll find in these blogs are just sharings of some of my most heartfelt experiences along the way. May they be of service to all reader pilgrims who cross this path.
