Power, Arrogance, and Corruption

Power, Arrogance, and CorruptionSith seek power for powers sake, we are drawn to it(speaking for myself, mostly). Power, if we aren’t cautious and mindful can lead to over-confidence and arrogance. What is so great about power? Well, for starters, if you have a goal you desperately need to reach, the more powerful you are, the easier it will be to obtain your objective, and to gain power, you must first gain strength, and for that, passion is needed(this will soon be explained in my holocron). Like the Dark side Logic lecture in the Great Jedi Holocron, one thing leading to another is not definate, but in this case, it is the likely series of what will happen.

If you powerful, and have been for a time you may become arrogant in the belief of you own invincibility, this over-confidence can destroy the power that you’ve worked so hard to control. If control is lost over you power, you can diminish yourself in every aspect, along with all those close to you. Knowing you can’t lose is one thing, but relying on such a fact can quickly mutate it into opinion. You must work for victory, it doesn’t just happen.

Destruction can be avoided, but if arrogance is not avoided as well, being crushed by your own power may be the better choice. Corruption shows and if you become corrupt, I doubt you’ll see it that way. Corruptionn is part of what makes a tyrant what he is.

Be aware that all you do, every small action you take, every decision you make, has echoes; cause and effect, for every action, there is a result, be it consequence or reward. If you set in motion events that will benefit you and can be manipulated to your advantage, do so. There are uses and harms of these echoes and if you can learn to use the reverberations I speak of, the possibilities are limiteless.
