I Have the Power!

Years ago, while I was still at school, I used to rush home to watch He Man and the Masters of the Universe, which was my favourite cartoon on TV at the time.

Adam is the Prince of a magical place called Eternia. He has a pet tiger called Cringer who is scared of everything. Whenever Eternia's peace is threatened by the evil Skeletor and his henchmen, Adam holds his sword aloft and says the words: "By the Power of Grayskull; I have the Power!" Adam is then transformed into He-Man, the strongest man in the universe.  Now that He-Man is full of the Power, he projects his power onto his pet tiger who is transformed into Battle Cat, the most courageous tiger in the universe. He-Man then rides Battle Cat into battle. He-Man is usually assisted by allies who fight Skeletor and his henchmen.

He-Man and his allies always win the battle (until the next episode).  Once peace has been restored, He-Man says "Let the Power return" and he goes back to being Prince Adam while Battle Cat becomes the same old scaredy-cat tiger.

I believe, like Eternia, the world we live in has many Skeletors that challenge our peace. Skeletors are within each individual's mind which then plays out in the world at large.  Take a look at any mainstream newspaper and you'll see Skeletor at work causing mayhem, suffering and destruction. I also believe we all have access to the same Power that Prince Adam uses to transform himself and his tiger to defeat the Skeletors of this world. That power is Light which is also our essence.

Here's how I access Light.

First, I call on Light by acknowledging Light's presence and as my Source. I then fill myself up with Light and then project light to whatever situation that needs transforming.  (Years ago, I had a dream in which I was being reminded to use Light at all times). 

Another way I access Light is through the practice of meditation.  I have also learned how to experience life from that space of inner silence, where there are no thoughts. From that space, I can watch television, browse the Internet, read the news, write, have a conversation and do whatever needs doing and still be in my peace.   I can't speak for everyone but it's taken me a long time to be able to live from that space of inner silence. From that space of inner silence I have constant access to Light.

While the Power can be shared with others, I believe it is very important for each individual to learn how to access the power within.  Then they are always protected against Skeletor.

We all have the Power within us to defeat Skeletor in every moment. 

"I have the Power!"
