Looking into the heart, one finds the true place of both peace and power. The two go hand in hand. The truth within each is incomplete and unbalanced without the other.
The only reason we ever truly need power is to reveal truth. The only way we can ever summon that perfect power is through inner peace. Therefore we must dwell with peace in the heart in order to raise the power to discover or reveal truth.
Why would we want to reveal truth? Because truth is the pathway to enlightenment!
This essence opens the heart to inner peace and through this inner peace you are shown the gateway to truth. If you desire to pass through the particular gateway which is being prepared and presented to you, then you will be given the power to pursue its hidden secrets. The power will be provided so that you can begin to determine the truth to your next challenges towards enlightenment or freedom. Enlightenment and freedom are the same thing. When we learn to walk through something which holds us captive, we become more free, therefore, we evolve.
The term 'gateway,' which the Guides use, is symbolic of your deeper consciousness becoming enhanced to a point where it will reveal to your waking consciousness your present issues and challenges. The lessons you must learn; the desires you must master; the issues you must comprehend, in order to reach your next level of perfection.
The essence of Power acts like a light to guide your way and a mirror to see your progress reflected back to you through your thoughts and feelings. It illuminates that which you need to change.
