Mahatma Buddha is believed to have risen from the Lotus, which simply meant, through meditative practices, he opened up gradually tp Universal Consciousness through the passive state of being-ness.
During most human daily activities, the mind is busy thinking how to achieve power, either through monetary gains in business and work, or by trying to control completely that which it governs. This is ego thinking and doing, a yang male activity of the mind in fear. For true power comes not from the realm of the mind, but from the Heart Center. Love is power, not mind wanting more than exists at any one moment in the “eternal now”. That is not to say, that one is wasting time doing activities that bring abundance or wealth, which is a form of power in the Earth Plane, but true multi-dimensional power comes from expressing fully and deeply, the energy which flows through the center of “All That Is,” the healing energy of Heart.
