New Thought discussion: power or force?

By Lisa Burnson
Special to The PREVIEW

“Power has to do with motive and principle. Power supports the significance of life itself. Power applies to what uplifts, dignifies, and ennobles you. Power needs no justification, whereas force must always be justified.” — Stretton Smith.
