Real power is about presence. It’s the energy of knowing that you are who you are, and therefore speaking and acting from your authentic self. It doesn’t matter what your work is, it is your presence that’s the power. It’s not power over anybody else. It’s just the expression of who you are. Love is the real power. It’s the energy that cherishes. The more you work with that energy, the more you will see how people respond naturally to it, and the more you will want to use it. It brings out your creativity, and helps everyone around you flower.
May I live authentically.
Consider the power of your presence. Work at projecting a positive and cherishing environment for others.
Be under obligation to no one—the only obligation you have is to love one another. Whoever does this has obeyed the Law.
Our love should not be just words and talk; it must be true love, which shows itself in action.
1 John 3:18
We must never undervalue any person. The workman loves not that his work should be despised in his presence. Now God is present everywhere, and every person is God’s work.
Saint Francis de Sales
God wants you to live for others and to live that presence well.
The best effort of a fine person is felt after we have left their presence.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Physical presence provides chemical, relational, psychological and physiological effects that virtual relationships cannot. Our brains change in the presence of another person and their behavior.
\Presence is more than just being there.
People also leave presence in a place even when they are no longer there.
A great leader also has the ability to make people an inch taller in his presence.
N. R. Narayana Murthy
Few delights can equal the mere presence of one whom we trust utterly.
Let there be nothing within thee that is not very beautiful and very gentle, and there will be nothing without thee that is not beautiful and softened by the spell of thy presence.
