Discover the Power Within Yourself

Posted by Luminus on December 5, 2005

An old Hindu legend says there was a time when men were gods. But they abused their divine powers so much that Brahma, the master of all gods, decided to take these powers away and hide them in a place where they would be impossible to find. All that remained was to find a suitable hiding place.

A number of lesser gods were appointed to a council to deal with the issue. They suggested this: “Why not bury man’s powers in the earth?? To which Brahma replied, “ No, that will not do because man would dig deep and find it.?

So the gods said, “In that case, we will send their divinity to the deepest depths of the ocean.“

But Brahma replied again, “Sooner or later man will explore the depths of the ocean and it is certain he will find it and bring it to the surface.“

So the lesser gods concluded, “Neither land nor sea is a place where man’s divine powers will be safe, so we do not know where to hide it.“

At that moment Brahma exclaimed, “This is what we will do with man’s divinity! We will hide it deep within him because that is the only place he will not think to look.“

From then on, according to the legend, man searched the world over; he explored, climbed, dove, and dug in search of something that was inside himself the whole time.

This piece was taken from the book Discover the Power Within You : A Guide to the Unexplored Depths Within written by Eric Butterworth, a Minister and author.

Day in and day out, we go in search of various things, struggling to be successful, trying to learn new tricks to beat the system but in truth, we really only need to look inwards to find the power to create our tomorrow today.
