I'm a big Star Wars fan, and I read a lot, so I read a lot of the SW extended universe works. In one of them, I forget which, but it was in the "old
republic" time frame, a sith battles a jedi master on a ship. The master is alone, if memory serves, she had the ship evacuated and she stayed
behind. Anyway, the sith wins and kills the jedi master, but had learned something from the fighting style of the jedi in the process. It was written
"There is strength in serenity, and steel in stillness".
I love that, because its true. It's a truth that controllers/manipulator never seem to grasp. That phrase encapsulates my personal philosophy with my
martial arts training, my yoga practice, pretty much any conflict now. In a state of relaxation/serenity, your power is fully available to you.
Controllers are like energy vampires, using control/manipulation to GAIN the power that we(those who don't behave that way) generate naturally.
That's all I have to say.
