I totally agree with Pratincole, however one still needs to function within this world, what he is speaking of is spirit beyond this world!
True power within this world, is attitude to whatever situation arises in your life, don't try to judge a situation as good or bad.
Often in life the worst things that happen to us at one point in our lives serves us the most in the future, look at Nelson Mandela, he is a prime example of greatness arising from a seemingly hopeless situation, he could do little about the situation, however he never allowed it to affect his attitude.
That is true power!
True power is what you believe in.
The power of the mind.
The power of love.
And the power of life.
