Mischanneling Jack/​Zen

Power cor­rupts be­cause it is so dif­fi­cult to ob­tain. When some­one has strug­gled to gain pow­er and fi­nal­ly suc­ceeds, they of­ten spend the rest of their time try­ing to hold on to it. What can get lost in the shuf­fle is the rea­son for seek­ing pow­er. Ironically, pow­er as a means to its own end is im­po­tent on a per­son­al lev­el be­cause it is based on ex­ter­nal con­trol.

Empowerment, on the oth­er hand, is not for its own sake, main­tains its strength from in­side it­self and is ob­tain­able by every­one. The abil­i­ty to be, with­out strug­gle, with­out con­text, is to be em­pow­ered. Then you can do any­thing.

  1. Adam,

    We were look­ing for you and some­one said you left. I was hop­ing that you would dis­cuss your sug­ges­tion. Maybe send an email? It should be brought up
    soon and I’d like to hear what you have in mind.
