When we feel overpowered, it is like having a giant wave loom over us and then crash and fall on us. Not a pleasant thing. It can very difficult to work through.
Just as there are times when we can feel overpowered by something, there are times where we can feel 'under-powered' too.
....I am coming to think of that as a more subtle tactic on the the part of the adversary. It is slower for one thing, it is more of a creeping, tunneling effect-- until one day, you twist an ankle, look down, and realize the rock has been burrowed through. That isn't pleasant either.
So what can we do?
Well, yesterday my youngest and I were listening/ watching (I was listening while driving, he was watching), to some scientists describe what happens to dust in space. The pull down effect of gravity isn't such a factor, and so instead of separating, they connect. And connect some more, and keep going until they are a massive formation. Which, when you think about it, makes a lot of sense, and symbolically works for people, too.
When we focus on the negative things in life, it pulls us down. It 'tunnels' our equilibrium out from under us.
When we have a mutual focus of light-- lifting one another, serving and caring for one another-- then our souls fill with light. That light radiates outwards, and yet has a space-like pull that brings people together. To connect.
And when you get a lot of people together who are focused on radiating light, the world shifts. It shifts because the way that the world turns is dependent upon how our inner selves move outward. It creates something that I'm going to call The Gravitational Pull of Light. And the strength of that momentum can be life altering.
