During one of our after-dinner chats, my wife and I were discussing our work.  The concept of power came up. She’s working on her masters related to propaganda aimed at women.  I was reflecting on my work was to break people free from their old patterns and beliefs. We explored how people think that getting things, buying, showing off, being the influencer is what makes people feel powerful.  That’s all backwards, of course. The over-posed, “look at me with my jet and my fancy car” pictures don’t entice followers. Having more doesn’t make you powerful. And certainly pretending to have more doesn’t make you powerful.  

And my wife blurted out something profound:  

It’s not the having, it’s the choosing that defines you.  

This episode includes the thoughts that springboard from here.
