I love you too, brother, but I think you've misread what I posted. Read it again.
Or, if I am incorrect in my assumption, the logical question would be, what is your problem with embracing personal power?
"It is not other people's power that scares so many people, it is their own that scares the crap out of them."
The problem with this statement my friend is that you are assuming that others have been given the same as what YOU have been given. You are pointing
out to others, pointing out flaws that are your own perceptions.
Now if it had been worded thusly,
"It is not other people's power that scares me, it is my own that scares the crap out of me."
Then it would be a true testimony because you can only truly know what you have been given.
Furthermore, you have a great gift. Your writing style captures the reader and draws him in. It makes the reader part of the story, and gives him
pause to think.
With your gifts you could teach others to see more greatness in them than they do. YOU could transform this world with that power.
Are you afraid of this power? Are you afraid of what would happen if YOU did transform the world through your writing?
Of course you aren't, you are here and writing away.
So, is the testimony accurate of yourself?
You cannot judge others my friend. You can only judge yourself. If one appears weak, the strong man lends assistance.
Bear in mind you are dealing with the resident madman, so I may not have any clue what I am trying to say myself.
