What is the real master power?

My friend Kristin has a way of stimulating my thought, she posted this cute thing:

If we incorporate the attitude “I am just an instrument in God’s hands,” then the burden of karma will fall away from us entirely. Only when a pen is in someone’s hands can it write letters. It does not write on its own. So too it is with a paintbrush. It does not paint on its own. Someone has to hold it to paint. We have to be like a pen or a brush in the hands of the Divine.” ––Amma (Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi) #tbt

And of course, I abreacted at first, not wanting to be a zombie for God, wanting to say “I CREATE MY REALITY” (ok where’s the beachside mansion with the blonde in a bikini?!) but fearful of public outlash against negativity, I instead questioned: “What is this god? What is this master power”? And was certain I had compiled a list, but cannot find it, so here we go:

  1. Impermanence: “What rises must fall, all component things disintegrate, whatever is born must die. All meetings end in separation.” – The Sutra of the Wise and Foolish.
  2. Balance – “If you need one word for me, it is Balance. Two words, rhythmic balance. Three words: rhythmic balance interchange of apparent opposites.” – Walter Russell, the Divine Iliad
  3. Consciousness
  4. Awareness
  5. Prana
  6. Qi
  7. Joy
  8. Loving Kindness
  9. Love
  10. Kundalini
  11. God
  12. Allah
  13. Yahweh
  14. The Psychedelic *is* the Creator – is the Flesh of God – Teonanactl – so says The Temple of the True Inner Light
  15. Utter nothingness – the life static particle beyond space and time, but capable of postulating space and time – so says L. Ron Hubbard and the various offshoot movements of Scientology. Quite a good and powerful system if you get the practice from a pure source outside the Church.
  16. Orgasm
  17. Sex
  18. Connection
  19. The Divine – what the hell is that?
  20. Juramidam – the gigantic (and real as hell) spirit that manifests when you consume the holy Daime (ayahuasca) from the Santo Daime Organization.
  21. Cannabis
  22. I.S.L.A.M.
