Grasp Power Lightly…

“Those who possess the power of knowing and trusting their Medicine grasp that power lightly. They understand that by clutching or holding on to the idea of power, one becomes possessed by it.
These wise individuals never need to defend who or what they are, because they are confident in the Medicine they carry. The precious understanding of one’s role in life and one’s gifts is between each individual and the Creator. The Earth Mother protects these gifted ones because they have come home to the Self, examining and working on all their weak points.
Through using the cold eye of self-examination, these individuals do not point fingers at others. They understand that there is no need to fight against jealousy or attempts to slander. They choose to maintain the dignity of their inner peace, and that is why we call them the Faithful and the Peacemakers.”   Jamie Sams – Earth Medicine, Ancestors’ Ways of Harmony for Many Moons
