How Do We Have Personal Strength and Power in today’s world?

Power is the ability to achieve Purpose

Power is the ability to affect Change.

  • Dr. Martin Luther King

“I think its also important to remember that Dr. King wasn’t just a theologian, poet and organizer.  That speech ended with these words:”  Quoted on Instagram by Brene Brown,

“Freedom is not some lavish dish that the power structure and the white forces imparted with making decisions will vountarily hand down on a silver platter while the Negro furnishes the appetite.  If we are going to have equality, if we are going to have adequate wages, we are going to have to struggle for it.”   Dr. Martin Luther King

Brene Brown who wrote about shame and perfectionism went on to say that “To me, social justice is about naming and dismantling the structures that deny power  to some while privileging others, and learning a new way of being where power is shared and infinite, not hoarded.”

Coincidentally this week, I have been reading Barach Obama’s book

    Dreams from My Father, A story of Race and Inheritance

Also I am reading a book by Nancy Iben called

    White Trash

The concept of family, social justice, slavery, and the lies that our American historians have told us as well as the whole concept of feelings that have been repressed, and the power that exists in all these complex relationships is a mind boggling concept. Being human is not easy.

Barach Obama talks about having met his Dad who was a Ph.D native from Kenya only once when he was ten years old and living with his grandparents in Hawaii, and how his father was most perfectionistic man, who was married quite a few times. Race and gender issues are dealt with bravely. Throughout the both books, there is this reference to self-esteem and identity. Barach Obama had a white mother whose parents were from the south but ended up living in Hawaii. His father was a native who lived and worked in Kenya.

Later as an adult, Barach Obama met some of his half brothers and sisters that lived in Kenya. Barach OBama had found out that power, as an organizer, was very much related in who you know, who was willing to get out and struggle and continue to try to raise awareness.

When he went to Kenya to visit his brothers, sisters, and hear the stories about his Dad, a number of the family had issues about his dad’s inheritance. As I read, I try to make sense of everyone’s relationship, and come away from it knowing that family is not easy. Racism is not easy. Sexism is not easy. Getting different religious groups to cooperate for the wellbeing of the community is not easy. Cooperating so to bring in new jobs and new employers is not easy. Not having roots as a black person has a huge impact.

My own family is not easy. I am from the South. My children are unimpressed. I love them. Yet judgments are made, and acted upon.

I will follow up with another essay about social justice. How do we hold the despair, victim, rescuer, perpetrator patterns, all the bad news of the day, and our own fear and all this unease in our relationships? It is a question that I am holding.

Faith Inspirational quotes
often pair Faith with the impossible and with things not yet seen. So we must have ‘faith’ when what we are hoping for is not yet here. Quotes inspirational in nature also indicate that it is necessary to have faith in self in order to be successful.

Napoleon Hill in his writings about success says that Faith is a state of mind that is developed. Getting to that inner certitude spoken of by the inspirational quote of Joseph Murphy happens over time. With intent, we can develop this quality. Find more about Faith and more inspirational quotes in this essay.

Enjoy this sample of inspirational quotes. Let these inspirational quotes buoy you when you need a little aid. May your mustard seed become fertile and grow.

      Faith, absolute dogmatic faith, is the only law of true success.
      -Ralph Waldo Trine

      Only a person who has faith in himself is able to be faithful to others.

      -Erich Fromm

      Great fear will always lose out to great faith.

      -Zig Ziglar

      Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
      -Hebrews 11:1

      Faith is a way of thinking, a confidence in the creative laws of your mind.

      -Joseph Murphy

      Faith is a mental image that in time clothes itself in a body of manifestation.

      -Joseph Murphy

      For verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed. . . nothing shall be impossible unto you.
      -Matthew 17:20

      Faith in its true meaning is the practice of the presence of God within you

      -Joseph Murphy

      Look upon faith as an attitude of mind, an inner certitude-a certain way of thinking whereby you know that any idea you emotionalize and feel to be true, is true and will be shown to be true.
      -Joseph Murphy
