[Excerpted from OMW: Manifesting Power] MEntity: We will discuss the concept of Power with you today. First, we will clarify what is meant by Power in our teaching, which we think is a meaning that extends to include most uses of the word. In our teaching, Power is an Expression Axis term. This is because Power can come from any number of sources and be implemented through any number of methods, but it requires Form, Expression, for it to be in existence. All terms on the Expression Axis require a move into Form for existence. The terms we choose for our Overleaf system are part of every individual life in some way, even as each Personality is a particular combination of emphasized terms. For example, one grows in a lifetime even if one does not have a Goal of Growth. Each fragment will have to contend with his or her relationship to Power, even if the Mode is not Power. Power is a spectrum that describes one's presence. The form of any kind of Power can range from between violent oppression that destroys to a quiet lucidity that awakens. Each Essence comes with a kind of built-in source of Power. How that comes into form is up to that fragment, and we have seen that every fragment will explore the entire range from violence to lucidity. Each Essence Role has a specific source or style of Power. We will share these with you, now. Keep in mind that Power is either GENERATED or EXTRACTED. There are other terms that could be used to describe these, but these terms will do. Power either comes from within, or without. Power that comes from within is regenerative and unlimited. Power that comes from without is dependent and limited. Keep this in mind as we describe the various Power of each Role. ... KINGS KINGS carry within them the Power of Legitimacy. When this Power is Extracted, it is a path of Power that depends upon adhering to inherited, imposed, or implied rules, standards, and principles. A King can do this for a long time, even for lifetimes, as a means for access to Power. "If I play by the rules, if I behave, if I enforce what I am told, I have Power." Then their Presence is legitimized. "I did what I was supposed to do." This can then carry over into how the King legitimizes others. If they adhere to the principles, rules, standards of which the King has determined are set, then you are legitimate in their eyes. When the King shifts toward an internal source of Power, this Legitimacy shifts toward being self-defined, flexible, and self-purposed. This Power regenerates in unlimited ways because the Legitimacy is defined by a sense of internal integrity, and this is then extended as respect for others who carry within them this internal integrity. The King who comes into Manifestation tends to be able to see the shift in the life from where Power was dependent upon external standards that isolated them from others in various ways, to where Power is a matter of internal definition and integrity that then draws them to others who uphold that, as well. For the KING, Legitimacy can show up as SPIRIT when regenerative, and as RULING when dependent. By Spirit here we mean that all superficialities fall away for the sake of a more authentic theme, intention, self, etc. Ruling is a blind adherence to an enforcement of an inherited standard, limitation, or law. ... For both the King and the Warrior, this Power tends to come into effect in terms of DOING. What the King or Warrior DOES, or what others are DOING, is where this Power comes up, either positively or negatively.
