One of the greatest lies we can tell ourselves is that we are powerless; powerless to change our lives, our realities, our societies- generally, our world. In fact, we are more powerful than we believe. But no one can awaken us to this notion but ourselves. No one can place the power to create change in our hands. It comes from the realization that we have that very thing for which we long for in the first place. Our agency comes from our being human. The agency of others stems from the same. By making this realization, our own feelings of powerlessness can be transformed. We can in a very deliberate way, change our thinking, and use our own perceived powerlessness to plant the seeds for a powerful- no- empowered existence, and from that stems all change.
It starts from within.
