Power Over, Power Under, Power With

Stashed in: Power!
There are different kinds of power: Power Over – that’s what the boss or state use Power With – horizontal organizing, that what we need to model and build Power Within – every single one of us has power to act. For some this is also spirit – a willingness to be fully alive, present and participating as an agent of change. Power Under – when we give up the power that we have, when we say we can’t instead of won’t.
Power comes from below. From the hidden places where it gathers until discovering itself.
It blazes into view lighting the sky and re shaping the landscape, sweeping away barriers it seemed would stand forever.
