Great Power

Uncle Ben wasn’t kidding around when he told Peter Parker that with great power comes great responsibility.

As you come to live a more mindful life, you realize that in any given moment you have the power to choose if you want to be happy, or if you insist on being right. In any given moment you have the power to choose if you want to be crabby because of someone’s lack of respect, or if you want to just let it go and be at peace.

Once you’re mindful and aware, you realize that you are in charge of your worldview, and are empowered to make a choice on how to react to it moment to moment to moment. It’s quite a responsibility that I think is great.
