If I have the power to affect you, or you have the power to affect me, then we have agendas for each other. Agendas are places where we judge other people, want them to behave a certain way, or think we know what is best for them. These places where we judge another, where we hold agendas, we seek to control another person. Where we hold agendas and seek to control another, we are not in our rightful place. It is never our rightful place to control another person.
When this happens we are not right-sized in relationship to the other person. We perceive ourselves to be bigger or smaller than them. That needs to be corrected. All of the infighting among equals is a distraction from accepting our true power. Our true power comes from recognizing that we are all always equal. Any illusion to the contrary needs to be corrected, and balance restored. We need to become a right-sized in relation to each other, and see our place in the greater whole.
And use our agency and power to serve that which is truly vulnerable. That which has no agency. The environment, animals, etc.
To use our agency to serve that which has no agency is to assume our rightful place in the larger ecosystem.
Freedom comes from finding every place we hold an agenda, where we wish to control another, or we judge another, and putting ourselves into right-size, into our rightful place.
Being right-sized unleashes the power of the universe.
