1. Authentic Power
“Except ye become as little children” means that unless you fully recognize your complete dependence on God, you cannot know the real power of the Son in his true relationship with the Father. (ACIM, T-1.V.3:4)
Authentic power comes from within. It’s the source of all of your creativity, inner freedom, and unconditional love.
Pseudo-power is the fleeting sense of power you get from controlling and dominating others.
Pseudo-power has an insatiable appetite, its mantra is always "more."
Psuedo-power loves to make others feel less powerful through shame, punishment, abandonment,
Pseudo-power is not authentic, it's false, untrue, not real, and pretend.
3. The pseudo-power phenomenon.
When you become consumed with pseudo-power such a position of power is like cancer.
It eats at you slowly, and you don't even know it.
Before you realize it you turn into something that you once despised.
Many great men and women have fallen because of the power they were given.
Will you be the one who falls into this trap - or not?
