When we are in our true power, we do not lash out at others. It is only when we are in the present moment that we can get access to this kind of power and feel empathy, compassion, and love for others. Therefore, when you see someone lashing out, know that this person is hurting and cannot access his or her real power. They can only lash out to make themselves feel powerful, but this is a false sense of control and temporary. Since it is a temporary feeling, they will have to keep repeating their behavior to keep up this false sense of power.
