Power Play

What is power? I asked this question to make people walking on the street.
One said (and he nearly killed me saying it) "Power is strength," Other said, pulling a gun from dunno where, "Power," he smiled.
The rich say, money is power, the poor and middle class say, Honestly is power...
I ponder on these power definations and suddenly realise, nobody can define power.
If you say, gun and strength is power, then what was that Mahatma Gandhi had...
If you say money is power, then what was that made many leaders powerfull.

Power is something infused in us since we our born. A new born baby has power that a mighty man cannot have. Its not about physical might, or physical strength...its about self, its yourself.

Ever heard of the Imperial Regalia of Japan (三種の神器) or the three sacred treasures depict the true meaning of power. They consist of the sword, Kusanagi (草薙劍), the jewel or necklace of jewels, Yasakani no magatama (八尺瓊曲玉), and the mirror Yata no kagami (八咫鏡). Also known as the Three Sacred Treasures of Japan, the regalia represent the three primary virtues: valor (the sword), wisdom (the mirror), and benevolence (the jewel).

While everybody things that sword is more powerful amongst the things, it is a mis conception. The three things render a powerful man together.

We see nowadays people lack the jewel and the mirror and just show their swords.
The power is not seen anywhere.
The power that made Mahatma Gandhi stand against the british.
The power that made Nathuram Godse raise the gun,
The power that made Leonardo-Da vinci paint Mona Lisa
The power that made Bernini Carve the sculpture..

Its that power that makes single mother raise the children,
Its that power that makes teen say no to drugs,
Its that power that makes a David defeat Goliath.

The power is everything, the power is God. You do not need the Son of God to step down on earth to show you the power, you can see it yourself. In you.

Finally it matters not wheather you posses the sword or the jewel. You are powerful enough if you know what you are... If you have the Yata no kagami (八咫鏡) the mirror.
