Whatever is at the center of one’s life will be the source of his or her security, guidance, wisdom and power.
Security here represents their sense of worth, identity, emotional anchorage, self-esteem and their basic personal strength or the lack of it.
Guidance means their source of direction in life. Wisdom being their perspective of life, sense of balance, understanding of how principles apply and relate to each other.
Power here represents their faculty or capacity to act, the strength and potency to accomplish something. It is also the vital energy to make choices and decisions, the capacity to overcome deeply embedded habits and to cultivate higher and more effective ones.
The truth is who we are has nothing to do with many of the things we have built our lives upon.
Those who derive security, guidance, wisdom and power from wrong and counter-productive sources, may never find fulfillment in life no matter their lot.
