“Our mission is not to bring death to all those unfit to live. We answer to a greater calling. All I have done on Ruusan, and all that we will do from this day forward, must serve our true purpose: the preservation of our Order and the survival of the Sith.” – Darth Bane
People will think of The Real Sith what many think of the Order in fiction. I am sure there are those who have read the previous entries in this philosophy that is being presented to you here, and have either dismissed it as crazy, or FEARED that it is “EVIL”. It is, like all that I do, NOT for those who do not get it, or would not use it. It is for those who do. I have spoken on the value of the code of The Sith. I have pointed out the flaw in a MORAL center as opposed to one of built on PRINCIPLE. I have explained EMOTION and the reasons it has played such a major part in the WEAKNESS of people. Now I will speak on the mind when ruled by PRINCIPLE and LOGIC.
The Real Sith knows that when PRINCIPLE and LOGIC rule the mind, many of the things that the WEAK, guided only by MORAL and APATHY have to FEAR of our path are irrelevant. Many will have more reasons to genuinely FEAR from one another than they ever will of a Real Sith. The Real Sith, in mastering themselves have the tools to understand that a sense for the PRACTICAL is the key to many things. The PRACTICAL achieves maximum benefit through the EFFICIENCY that convoluted thoughts and systems born from FALSE MORALITY and DOUBLE STANDARDS prohibit. MORALITY will tell us that PERFECTION is unachievable, when the reality is, that it is only unachievable under the lopsided conundrum of the definition given to it. BALANCED DUALITY is PERFECTION, it provides for both the POSITIVE elements of what we hold dear and the NEGATIVE elements that are the control factor by which we measure the value of all we hold dear. As such, PERFECTION is not the complete absence of WEAKNESS for that is impossible. It is the control of WEAKNESS so that we do not allow that WEAKNESS to be what defines our actions and thus, the outcome of our conflicts. The PRACTICAL allows for you to know that STRENGTHS and WEAKNESSES are as much relative to a given situation as they are personal and this knowledge gives you the ability to CHOOSE your conflicts wisely when the option to CHOOSE is available. Put the most charismatic and inspirational speaker in a stadium of deaf people with no translator and watch their STRENGTH disappear. A person who is unable to speak at all may not be able to scream for help, but they are in a far better position to keep a secret than most.
Conflict is Natural in life, Natural in evolution. Because of this it will always be present and every living being has to face that fact. How you face that fact means the difference between VICTORY or DEFEAT, in both naturally occurring conflicts that are unavoidable and the ones we set ourselves to confront for greater achievement. Beware those WEAKNESSES that will perpetually keep you at a disadvantage. PRIDE, JEALOUSY AND MORALITY are all heads of the same beast, they are the only true EMOTIONS manifested by pure EGO. Confidence is knowing what you are capable of. PRIDE is a reaction in defiance to stimuli that exposes a WEAKNESS or FAULT that we try to keep hidden even from ourselves. It is not KNOWING what you are worth, but rather believing in some false value of what you are worth, one that ignores that you cave to your WEAKNESSES. An overinflated sense of self. JEALOUSY branches from this same source. It is an overinflated sense of what one deserves, that like PRIDE comes from a place where we keep the “secret” knowledge of our WEAKNESSES. MORALITY is FALSE RIGHTEOUSNESS, in it we display an overinflated sense of knowing what is “right” and what is “wrong” based upon an ideology that flies in the face of Natural Order. These are all WEAKNESSES that blind us to the reality that what we attempt to be, is a LIE. It is ironic that in our sad attempts to believe we are more than we are, we make ourselves less than we really could be.
The Real Sith is devoted to unlearning the pointless habits, and thought processes that make a person their own worst enemy when facing any conflict. TRUTH: at the end of the day we often find defeat not at the hands of circumstance or other people, but by our own. Acceptance in being your own worst enemy breeds apathy. The Real Sith knows how to look for the keystones in any situation, has the STRENGTH to end a conflict on their own terms, that was began on someone else’s. The path of The Real Sith is not in stamping out the WEAK without reason, or purpose, they will take themselves down in the end with their lack STRENGTH, and it does not display STRENGTH to exhibit an action made easy by an unwitting target. When another initiates that conflict it is another matter entirely, an example must be made of what you are not willing to tolerate, otherwise you are creating unnecessary conflict that does nothing even with a VICTORY. LOGIC dictates that one should never destroy what can at some point be made use of. LOGIC dictates that through accomplishment, the WEAK will flock to you in awe of what they can not bring themselves to believe is possible. Some will be useful, some will be jealous, some will simply want to flaunt their connection to you. Never forget what they are, they clamor to you, for what they can not do themselves. Some will however display signs of being the STRONG, these can make for the truly useful allies, but also the most cunning enemies. TRUTH: when the STRONG collide, VICTORY goes to the most deserving as per the PRINCIPLES of NATURAL ORDER. It will always come down to who wants that VICTORY the most and so LOGIC dictates that only a fool dulls their own edge and fails to use all that is available to them to ensure that VICTORY is theirs in the end. I leave you now with one of The Real Sith Proverbs.
“Conflict is inevitable, some conflicts can be CHOSEN. CHOOSE them wisely for the sake of the purpose you set yourself to, so that sacrifice comes with a payoff and is not just the pointless taking of damage that could have been avoided with a mind ruled by PRINCIPLE and LOGIC. All things must serve your purpose or to defend it.” – Darth Venomous
