Have learned the secret of being content and do not want anything even if they lack.
This is true power.
For the rest of us who have not yet learned the secret of being content we will continue to stay the victim of the schemes and manipulations of every wicked person and situation that we loath.
The voodoo they do plays upon your dependence on them for your “needs” . . whatever they may be, ranging from needs for security, approval, significance, etc.
Real revolutions happens when people start learning the secret of being content or learning to do without that which they think they need.
Your needs and wants are actually legit. Our methods for getting them met are usually not.
Letting go of illegit methods for getting our needs met is to surrender to the cross. Our cross is anything that seems to torturous us if we surrender to it, but also is simultaneously leading us to “power”.
Through the cross you learn how to do without.
Once you discover that you can do without you loose fear. The fear of not getting what you think you need.
Once the fear is gone, you loose anger. Anger is fear expressing itself.
When fear and anger are no longer present, you can release peace and love.
Peace from within expressing itself outward as love.
Love is unconditional acceptance of unacceptable situations and people.
You can truly accept everything and everyone without condition because you don’t need anything or anyone to be or do anything other than what they are already being and doing without concern of how that effects you.
This ability to do without and this type of contentment is the end goal of everyone’s spiritiual formation process. It is enlightenment.
“I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.I can do all this through him who gives me strength.” – Philippians 4:11-12
