I admire people with clarity, integrity and conviction of thought. One who can put forth her views, is open to criticism and can defend herself convincingly. In short a woman with a sharp mind! :smile:

I believe we are living Souls, having three parts:
Spirit, Mind, and Body.
Each has their own voice within us, when we talk to ourselves it's our mind conversing with our spirit and/or body. The thoughts and intent of our hearts comes from these conversations.
I admire a calm, peaceful countenance, wisdom that comes from knowing and understanding truth with directness to point out the errors of my ways.

Bernie Sanders is someone I admire. He's devoted decades of his life to activism and public service. Advocating for equality and reasonable quality of life standards being deemed human rights.

I think of myself as a sentient, logical, emotional, physical being that embodies a fragment of essence source energy.

I also admire the Native Americans who put up and went through a lot at times.

Indigenous people have always had to bow to the deceitful invaders.

So no spirit? We all think so different. I used to be very attracted to a Mingler called Darkowl. We talked about spirit alot. Do you remember him?

I tend to think of the word spirit as referring to the place on a scale from high to low that reflects my current state of being. For me spirituality basically means a connection to things beyond the physical and purely logic based reality. I believe that all life has the ability to access that energetic level connection.

In general I think when someone has self-confidence, does what makes them happy and exudes that, has an inner drive (inspiration) to do what they do and is quite dedicated to that.
And it should bring good to people and/or have genuine charm and/or kindness.
Not much different from what I find attractive in a potential romantic partner really.

It can be Will Smith. The man only enters a room or hall and the entire place lights up.

But also someone like our politician Thierry Baudet who is extremely eloquent, knows what he stands for and what he wants, always looks the part. And no matter how much slag he gets from the rest of government during get-togethers, he never loses his cool nor his eloquence, he stays calm, together, and respectful, yet still brings his message home powerfully.
I can totally admire that!

But it doesn't have to be a celebrity. It could also be a housewife.

A big shout out to all healthcare staff, who kept their country going during this pandemic, saved lives but also witnessed death and grief.

Of course, other frontline staff shall not be forgotten either waving

I feel spirituality is very important as it tends to give strong moral and ethical values to a person too...

Self control too is good as too much of any one thing is definitely a no no...

in my individual world i observe a lot honesty respectful loyal trustworthy
is this man mature but yet can be playful laughs alot confidence enough to carry self well
self awareness and is he capable of not always being write the saying
Agree to just disagree
he puts u first on his priorities or ur just another hoe
his qualities are golden w good intentions doesn't like hurting others but yet man enough to be real not a liar
and he needs to be able to speak w some kind of smarts and can carry on a conversation w some input but always that thing hanging he's old fashioned
and he must defend my back when I can't
Not selfish treats love of another w respect while earned not gvin
A man who believes in truth he'll has beliefs values moral respect and must be secure enough to take constructive criticism and open mindedness to be his own I repeat ability to be honest w his feelings and emotions
have an individual thought w the ability to be secure enough to stand for what he believes in w out it always being other peoples problem he didn't do nothin ****.

Mostly Wisdom and Self-Control.
Not necessarily with finances as many associate to powerful people.

Its the ability of someone to see the reality of any situation and act accordingly to promote harmony. A social grace.

People I see as powerful have full control of their emotional states.
Their emotions do not rule their personality.
A person who can remain calm, with their wits about them, making proper decisions to cause an intended outcome in any type of crisis are the powerful people, as I see it.

I see people who are 8-up with worry about things which have not come to pass as weak and fragile.
Its been my experience people living by expectations alone not only fail to enjoy the life they have, they tend to be deluded, unstable and unpredictable in a bad way.

There are a great many people who can't actually enjoy the life they have.
Its like contentment for them is taboo or against the natural order of life.
To me, powerful people do not need a crutch to be happy, they just are.

I don't think strength is being able to go on without being affected. Strong people feel the most -while others may skip the feelings to save energy because they can't handle the feelings as well as daily life.

Some strong people might do well to skip feeling a bit more so as not to become overwhelmed, but feeling true things grounds us in truth.

there has always been a dilemma on balance of life and spirituality and the universal ties to The Comics since the beginning of time. True Knowledge comes the Spirit of heart and all the beauties of life nature and the universe Harmony is behold within it.
