You possess a potential power that is superior to any difficulty that life may ever present. This immense inner capability enables anyone who will claim it to instantly rise above his challenger. It makes no difference what form the challenge may assume or how huge it looms. This latent power of yours can render it harmless and ultimately make it disappear.
This friendly force that can turn your life into a series of victories is the power to question defeat. Stressful and painful experiences are not caused by people or events by our reactions to them. Instead of asking yourself ‘Why do these things always happen to me?” ask ‘What is it inside of me that attracts me towards these painful situations?”. Why do you let the way you feel be determined by external conditions? What is it in you that always needs to defended? These new questions are the power that vanquish defeat. Each time you ask the right question about an inner ache, the very nature of your question places you safely outside the tricky influences of your lower nature that can only exist by turning you into an avenging victim.
You have to indulge in self-questioning to illuminate what is within you that it feels as though it is always being punished.
