We tend to operate everyday from a place of closed-fisted power, imagining that if we maintain our sense of control over things that our lives will be easier. If we wield this power, we will be stronger and better. Or so we think, and imagine. Try opening a door, or making your much needed morning coffee with your closed fist. And yet, this is often the place we operate from.
The true seed of our power does not lie in the power of controling outcomes, but rather it exists in the open spaces that we allow ourselves to become when we simple let go. When we relinquish our desire for control through our closed fist, the peace and true power that lies within each of us can shine. Our lives become easier--the everyday tasks appear easier and enjoyable. Our closed fist no longer prevents us from doing all of the things we want. The power of the universe lies in our open palm.
