Via Ram Dass

 
The game of powers is always very simple: Don’t use them. The minute you get a power and say, “I’ve got this power, I will use it,” you’re stuck again. A new attachment, a new ego trip. Don’t use them, rather let them be used through you.

Purity brings powers. Unfortunately, that’s one of the lions at the gate that brings you incredible powers. The minute you’re a little less attached than everybody else, you have incredible power over everybody, because you don’t want anything that everybody else wants so much. The minute you don’t want so much, suddenly you’re free, in a way that you can’t believe because you’re so used to being trapped in this network of needs and desires.
