What Is Power

What Is Power?
If power begins in
controlling something, then are we powerless prior to controlling?

Yes and no.

We have potential, which is a power in itself, but unused and
undirected potential is NOTHING.

Are we powerless prior to controlling?

I would say we are not powerless, but ignorant (Which is a version of
powerlessness, I guess.)

We don't know that we have power and don't know to know to test it.

The end of all powerlessness begins with awareness.

A Samurai Warrior would learn this by practicing a meditation of
sitting on the top of a mountain with his arm extended and sword
pointing skyward in a position ready to fall. He would meditate on that
fleeting moment when a balanced piece of metal would turn into an
unpredictable falling/killing weapon. His awareness was on the
potential of the weapon. When he learned that then he could study the
application of it's power.

What is power like?

How great is power?

Where is power now?

To Know. To Will. To Dare. To Keep Silent.

These were the powers of the Sphinx and they remain dormant in all of
us to one degree or another.

You don't know what you don't know. Thus you must seek knowledge in
whatever realm you wish to control.

You must Will and Dare to use that knowledge.

To keep silent. This is where power turns to craft. It is the most
subtle application of power. So subtle it may seem that things are all
happening in your favor when in fact they happen by your design.

A bolder resting precariously on a cliff, a bow string pulled tight,
these have a quality of potential force, What the Chinese strategist,
Sun Tsu, called "shih". With just the right action and the force is

The silent art of power and control is to see the potential force in
everything and arrange it so that, if released, it works in your favor.

The keys to this power are first to know what you want far into the
future and to know it in rich and glorious detail. The next step is to
develop a presice and detailed plan to your goal and to meditate upon
it day in and day out. By having this constantly on your mind you will
function with the greatest efficiency toward your goal.

You will see the world about and know "This action will lead me to my
goal. This action will lead me nowhere."

This task that is unnatural for most of us because of our natural
tendency to focus on the thoughts of the present and to respond to the
urgencies at hand. To master this skill we must alter our thinking and
see every action that we perform as an act of manipulating "shih".

To do this is the height of Sphinx-like power and makes mere men to
seem magical as if they controlled the forces of nature.
