In the concept of hierarchal structure it all comes down to consciousness. And the true accelerator of consciousness is knowledge, the more you know, the more conscious you are, the more conscious you are, the more awareness you possess in the present moment. People most often misunderstand and misinterpreter power, as they incorrectly label monetary means or material possessions as the accelerator of success, when in reality those are usually only byproducts of knowledge; not in all cases, but in most. The one and only factor of true power is knowledge and mental ability, as those are the only ways to channel consciousness. As knowledge is higher form of intellect, you are with the conscious expression of knowledge able to formulate intricate intellectual compositions, which will, in one way or another, facilitate the climbing in the hierarchy of consciousness. One does not need to be in the spotlight in order to be in the topmost elite of knowledge or apex group of consciousness, as the power lies in the ability to channel ones thought mentally. Either you know exactly what is manifesting and why, or you are being distracted. And the most pertinent distractions are usually money, conventional achievements and material possessions, as they usually drags one away from consciousness and in the extension knowledge. The power of consciousness once you truly possess it allows your mind to move worlds.
