Strength and weakness

Strength bereft of purpose is but mindless savagery.

All power requires constraint to enable freedom, unrestrained power leads to corruption.

Too many who hold power hold an equal amount of moral certainty that they have not earned. Feeling weak and powerless is a necessity if one wishes to experience the full spectrum of life. Learning to ask for help is difficult, and rarely done by those who have lived in power their whole lives, there is simply an expectation of control and obedience.

One needs know power and also helplessness. To understand the need for aid while also retaining a sense of personal freedom and strength. Individuality coupled with an understanding that we need others to thrive. Without a tribe we are isolated, lonely, but a tribe can be dangerous as well, creating division and cruelty.

Creating a balance is difficult. But we have to do it.
