Take Back Your Power, A Freewrite



My Freddy mewled loudly at my back door yesterday. I thought the sound strange, not his usual cry to come in, something more urgent. As I looked out the window, I could see a small creature in his maw, a tiny black mouse hanging and curled, clearly dead.

Did the mouse give up its power to the cat? Or had the mouse lived its purpose powerfully?

This is the way of nature. All things, breathing or not, are created for purpose, for potential of their own, to live by nature's principles, even a tiny mouse killed by a cat.

We live in times when there is a forceful message being delivered to us night and day and night and day, for breakfast, for lunch for dinner, haunting our sleepless nights. This message says that we must give away our power in order to survive.

This is false.

Our power can not be taken from us, no creature's power can. We can temporarily give it away, but it remains within easy reach. One blink of the eye and we can take it back.

Live in your own source of information. There is no other source that knows more about what you need than you do. If you trust yourself first, no one and no thing can dominate you. Think about this.
