The next time you’re overcome with feeling as if you are powerless, take this one interior action and watch that fear disappear: instead of looking at what your fear is telling you is greater than your power to deal with it—i.e., a failing relationship, a brewing storm, or a pending loss of some kind—look instead at the part of you that wants you to believe that who you are is inadequate to meet the challenge at hand. Then remember the following truth:

All feelings of being powerless are the false projections of a frightened level of self that is not you.

Real spiritual power is knowing that no moment is greater than your divine right to call upon an indwelling light that transforms any darkness it touches into something bright, true, and good for all.
