Don't Give Your Power Away
To sanctimonious, self-righteous egos who are trying to shame you, undermine you, and knock you down.
To Energy Vampires.
To con men (or women).
To people/institutions/hierarchies who don't ask for it.
Especially not to people/institutions/hierarchies who do ask for it/demand it.
Keep your power of volition in your pocket for your own use, in the present moment, the only moment, the eternal moment. Trust yourself.
Don't try to convince anyone of anything.
In my own case, I simply live life on my own terms, looking into my heart, head and soul to bring my artistic vision into our world. This is my vocation, my happiness and destiny.
And so on (as Kurt Vonnegut might say.)
