The leader who relies on Inner Light
need not resort to force.
Force creates resistance.
Aims aren’t achieved.
Trying to control people,
fighting and fury
only bring destruction
and despair.

The wise leader
seeks peace, not strife;
trusts deepest knowing, not pride;
depends on inner truth, not outward approval.
Worldly power offers security,
but this wall collapses.

Jim Teeters in Because of This
