Authority is the Seventh Treasure

Authority means to have the power, or right to give orders, to make decisions and to enforce rules of order. This is truly a treasure of great importance for it has the power to create, or destroy depending upon ones moral and ethical underpinning. Just remember orders, decisions and rules of conduct based upon good and sound morals and ethics is the basis of a prosperous society. We all have some level of authority. Mostly it is the authority we have over our own conduct; our perception and attitudes. How we decide and enforce our conduct runs counter to our moral and ethical point of view. So, although we often think of authority as someone with great power it is a treasure, we all share. How we use it determines whether we prosper or not. Authority means the power to make and implement rules of order. Whether it is the head of a household, or the head of a nation rules must be followed The problems happen when authority and power is misused because of greed, deceit, anger and pride. The four great passions will lead to destruction if not tethered by ethical and moral codes of conduct. Never forget that life has a perfect accounting system. Nothing goes unbalanced or unnoticed. The laws of karma state that for every cause, there will be an effect. Life becomes what life does. END Authority brings with it a great responsibility. Someone of great authority is often known as an expert and therefore holds great knowledge. This knowledge often grants power, prestige and position. Authority also means to have the legal and formal rights to give orders and make decisions. How we use this authority determines whether a person, family, group or society prospers, or not. Just remember, we all have the treasure of authority. Every day we make decisions and enforce rules of order. The moral duty of anyone in a place of power and authority is to make the world a better place by making those who they have power and authority over, healthy, happy and safe. Their happiness and welfare then become the authoritarian’s happiness and welfare. When this happens, everyone prospers. Sincerity and appreciation are required to discover this treasure. Authority is truly a great treasure. Use it wisely and you will prosper. EGO”: flip your palm up and extend your index finger – the symbol of your ego. The ego loves power and authority. It gives it a feeling of strength and autonomy. However, when used to dictate, coheres or abuse others, or the world it will always be deflated and depleted. Think of those who yielded great power and authority only to abuse it. Eventually they lost both of these treasures. Pull your finger in and place your thumb the sambal of your ego on top. If you wish to proper do not give away your power but rather use it along with your authority to make the world a better place. Remember do no harm and do not abuse your power and authority. As Gandhi reminded us, “The day the power of love overrules the love of power, the world will know peace.” Namaste~ may you walk with health, happiness and peace Doctor Lynn For a FREE HEALTH NEWSLETTER; course, classes, books and more
