EFFICACIOUS POWER! Power enough to produce the desired result without overpowering or under-powering and producing an insufficient result. Efficacious Power...it produces the most befitting effect. This is the sort of force we need to apply to our lives. We needn't necessitate more work than needed because that simply leads to unnecessary effort on our part and unforeseen consequences. If we can learn to apply this "Efficacious Power" properly, we can attain what we desire under desirable circumstances and EVERYONE can come off the better for it!

Yesterday I began to rewatch Digimon on YouTube...that is how bored I am. I'm past watching all of my beloved Star Trek reruns and I am now watching a show that I was obsessed with as a child. Don't get me wrong...it's a very good show. You would just think that on the cusp of my entrance into adulthood I would have better things to do with my life. Instead, I am left still feeling as if I am in the fifth grade...bloody hell.

Went out and saw I now pronounce you Chuck and Larry last night with [livejournal.com profile] kirkthehoplite. It was very good. Not at all what I was expecting...there were a few little cheesy, almost chick-flick worthy moments. I had been hoping for a flat out comedy, something more akin to the farcical Talladega Nights. I still enjoyed it...it just wasn't what I was expecting. It threw me off guard a bit.

Force begets force.

One whose needs are simple can fulfill them easily.

Material wealth does not enrich the spirit.

Self-absorption and self-importance are vain and self-destructive.

Victory in war is not glorious and not to be celebrated, but stems from devastation, and is to be mourned.

The harder one tries, the more resistance one creates for oneself.

The more one acts in harmony with the universe (the Mother of the ten thousand things), the more one will achieve, with less effort.

The truly wise make little of their own wisdom for the more they know, the more they realize how little they know.

When we lose the fundamentals, we supplant them with increasingly inferior values which we pretend are the true values.

Glorification of wealth, power and beauty beget crime, envy and shame.

The qualities of flexibility and suppleness are superior to rigidity and strength.

Everything is in its own time and place.

Duality of nature that complements each other instead of competing with each other — the two faces of the same coin — one cannot exist without the other.

The differences of opposite polarities — i.e. the differences between male and female, light and dark, strong and weak, etc. — helps us understand and appreciate the universe.

Humility is the highest virtue.

Knowing oneself is a virtue.

Envy is our calamity; overindulgence is our plight.

The more you go in search of an answer, the less you will understand.

Know when it's time to stop. If you don't know then stop when you are done.

I find that when I need it the most, [livejournal.com profile] lestatdelct2 seems to pop up with small bits of wisdom that speak quite deeply and make a strong point.
