The Power of Love

Happy Monday!  As we begin a new week, reflect on the power you exude at your places of employment.  Does love abide in your power?

One of the greatest problems of history
is that the concepts of love and power
are usually contrasted as polar opposites.

Love is identified with a resignation of power
and power with a denial of love.
What is needed is a realization that power
without love is reckless and abusive

and that love without power
is sentimental and anemic.

Power at its best is love implementing the demands of justice.
Justice at its best is love correcting everything that stands against love.
~Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. 1966

What are your concepts of love and power?  Do your love and power work in harmony?
