Domination comes from the Latin word dominus, meaning “master” or “lord”, and implies someone has a right to impose their will in the sense of ‘Power Over’ rather than ‘power-to-protect’.

‘Domination’ conveys the idea not just of leadership, but of absolute, un-challengeable authority.

In the spiritual realm, domination is any instance of ‘power over’ where blame, shame or guilt is applied to force people to agree against their own inner conscience or peace.

This contradicts spiritual Love and most major religious founders fought against domination. e.g. Jesus and his constant confrontation of religious leaders. Buddha spoke against political power. etc
