Expression of Will

Force and Power:

  1. Force is a measure of our ability to change, internal or external states.
  2. Power is a measure of our ability to exert this force over time.
  3. Force and Power both measure kinetic expressions of will.

Confidence and Restraint:
  1. Self restraint is a fettering of will, both its force and its power.
  2. Self confidence is an unfettering of our kinetic expression.
  3. The ability to express our will is limited; confidence spends what restraint refunds.
  4. A dominance of confidence maximizes the force and power of our expression.
  5. A dominance of restraint conserves this potential; delayed maximization.

Regulation:
  1. The regulation of our will avoids homeostasis, seeking a dominant influence for each moment.
  2. Regulation providing consistent dominance leads to the maximization of individual power.
  3. Regulation tolerating conflict leads to the progressive attenuation of our expressive capabilities.
  4. Failure to regulate will into dominant states wastes the individual gifts of energy.
  5. Success in this regulation can leverage a paucity of energy into an influential expression of will.

Limitations:
  1. We can increase our energy measure and production rate to an extent limited by our condition.
  2. We can perfect our regulative ability to an extent limited by our circumstance and experience.
  3. We can do neither perfectly (i.e. IZEO), force is not exerted in a vacuum, and our understandings are limited by short lives and received childhoods.
  4. While perfection is delusion and as a goal a sickness, its nearness is a desire innate within us, and cannot be healthily set aside.

Affirmation:
  1. We continue to draw near, valuing progress over perfection.
  2. We can increase and perfect, living dominantly and without conflict.
