I am Powerless – Episode 257

Read a transcript of this episode.Flowers in the hospital room

A “first step” meeting came at just the right time for me, this weekend. My mother had fallen and broke her leg. She lives almost 500 miles away, and I am powerless over the fact that she broke her leg, over the treatment that she gets, and over how she is feeling. I am using the tools of detachment with love, of finding the wisdom to change the things I can, and accepting the things that I cannot change. How do you find power is your powerlessness?

I read from Courage to Change, October 10.

  1. No one is, “Powerless,” that has, “Free Will.” Having said that, we can empower ourselves by accepting that we cannot control everything and everybody and we do have a tendency to do the wrong thing.
