You Have No Power Over Me - A Repost of An Older Piece

A repost of an old one..

Sarah: “Through dangers untold, and hardships unnumbered, I fought my way here to the castle, beyond the Goblin City, to take back the child that you have stolen. For my will is as strong as yours, and my kingdom is as great…you have no power over me.”

The above quote taken from David Bowie’s 80’s movie about a goblin king (Bowie) who takes a child after his sister wishes him away….has stayed with me …. “you have no power over me” …. That is a quotation to live by…..Take it to heart….make it your own….

Everyone has troubles in this world….fight your way past it…But, it is a measure of character how you handle that battle….You can become bitter and angry. You can make fun of someones beliefs and the way they choose to live their life, resort to becoming that which hurt you, or you can be better than that….No one can “make” you angry … You feel anger when you feel powerless….

Some feed off a weaker soul to feel a sort of psuedo power…..it is not real power…power comes from inside you. For me, it comes from my spirituality…..I know there is a Power, a Love that is greater than me, or any bully….

“My kingdom is just as great” Wow…do you see what that means? There is room for all of us…no ones opinion is greater than yours, or mine, or theirs. My life is just as important as anyone’s…and so is yours….But so is theirs.

A bully is a hurt soul….one who has chosen a path of self destruction…soul destruction……and is to be pitied…..

I watched this movie tonight “Labrynth” and enjoyed it for the light entertainment it is…..but when Sarah said her affirmation……I thought of my own troubles….my own fights….and was reminded again, of my own shortcomings….I know better…But I’m not perfect & I fall into the very human trap of wanting to fight back.

If I get punched in the nose…I want to punch back….But with these words still fresh in my mind…I vow to get up again…..to fight my way through the goblin city…….and to the bully’s, goblins in my life…the troubles that life just has to throw my way…… “you have no power over me” .

I have been talking to a friend who is on an amazing journey of self discovery…his power is almost a visable bright light……he has gone from a “victim” to fighting through the goblins and taking control….he is going to be an amazingly powerful soul who instead of being twisted by anger and bitterness, has retained an almost childlike beauty…..He is going to be a teacher and a guide……True power is in this man…”angelic” someone else close to me called him……..That’s a choice….that is character….
-—————————————————————————————————
Take it or leave it, enjoy it, or make fun….at this point I personally couldn’t care less….The bullies here aren’t helping, they aren’t the people they try hard to appear to be….The loftiness, the well written pieces, don’t hide the truth as well as they’d like…If it weren’t for a few troublemakers, infusing the site with discontent, and confusion, we’d all have been a lot happier, and the problems that are real could be addressed in a positive and constructive way.

Child porn is against the law…and should have been dealt with a long time ago…no doubt about that……Don’t bother to comment…I won’t be back for a long time….I have other sites where I actually sell a lot of prints…among other items, and guess what…..NO drama…It’s embarassing…how can you expect to sell anything in this quagmire….
