In the spiritual life, God's Power and Love are inseparable; they are like the obverse and reverse of the same coin. Before we realise the highest Transcendental Truth, we have the love of power. But after we realise the Truth, we come to feel that we have only the power of love. As long as we remain in the world of desire, we cherish the love of power. But the moment we enter into the world of aspiration, we come to realise the power of love.
