The Way and Its Power

By letting go of self-consciousness, we are better able to feel what is necessary and appropriate.
We can align with the event and produce a favourable outcome.
The taoist text; Tao Te Ching is all about this process.

The Way must be followed entirely (immersion) in order to borrow the outcome (Its Power).
This is power you can use, not power you can own.

As soon as you stop being with the moment, with the event, the power is lost.
Self-consciousness, resistance, fear, speculation, thinking, choosing will cause this to happen.
Power is conditional upon your immersion in the moment.
