There are those who romanticized empowerment as an evolutionary process. When in truth, it is a full circle back to who you always have been on the inside; all else is distraction.
Being empowered is not a realization of all the ego’s greatness. It is a introspection of how your unique identity is greatly flawed to shine greatly. The realization of this feels like the soft and shallow rush and undertow of the ocean’s tide. The prickling skin when the cold spring breeze meets the bright warm sun.
There are no flashing lights or red carpets when you come back to yourself; it feels like Home.
