Chasing after power

Allama Iqbal said: “Power is more divine than truth. God is power. Be ye, then, like your father who is in heaven.”

Which power is he talking about?

I think he is talking about the power over our self.

Why is power over our self 'divine'?

A rule says: “If you change the rules on what controls you. You change the rules on what you can control.”

As Darwin said: “The fittest of the species is not the strongest, nor the most intelligent but the one that is most adaptive to change”

So how do you change the rules that control you i.e. how do you gain this divine power?

1. You do this by identifying what it is that you "Love doing".
2. Don’t accept any excuses you offer to yourself as to why its not possible.
3. Gain clarity on what steps you need to take and go forth.

Decide on one thing e.g. getting up early in the morning and Go for it!

You can go step by step in identifying more difficult things [that you love] or go for a really big thing/goal [that you would love to do]. The tougher the goal the more fun it will be achieving it!

So basically I think the more things you "Love" the more "Control" you will have over your self and so the more "Powerful" you will become.
