    Default The Passion of Fear, Part Deux - Part 3 of 5

    The Passion of Fear, Part Deux
    By Kaith Rustaz


    What is Fear?

    Fear is the Mind Killer, wrote an unknown Mentat.

    This is true. Fear kills the mind, and unmastered will paralyze you.

    Do not let fear paralyze you, instead focus fear so that it will instead immobilize your enemy. If you enemy fears you, you have the advantage.

    Fear takes many forms. Anxiety, Nervousness, Paranoia, Distrust, Terror and more.

    All have power. All can kill. All can be useful.

    Before battle, relax. Do not fear what is to come, welcome it. At the moment of battle, feel your fear, let your anxiety heighten your senses, let your nervousness speed your reaction. Let your enemy’s anxiety and nervousness cause them a sleepless night, leaving them tired and sluggish.

    Do not react to your enemies attempts to intimidate, to terrorize you. Instead, let them be terrorized by your non-reaction to their actions. Sow distrust and paranoia amongst them, let their fears defeat them before you even raise your blade.

    Fear is power. Despots rule by fear. Terrorists are masters of it’s use. Do not fall prey to their illusions. Feel it, acknowledge it, let it pass. Let their fear feed your anger.

    To control your fear you must learn to control yourself. Left unchecked, your fear can injure you, lead you into unwise and untenable situations, even kill you.

    Do not allow your fear to cause you to rush in recklessly. Recklessness is the victor of many a fool. Do not allow fear to a fool make of you. Sith are not fools, and do not allow their emotions to make fools of them.

    Fear has caused many a fall. Anakin fell into darkness due to his fears. They conquered him, as he was weak and unable to let go of his selfish fears.

    Fear is the mind killer. Be wary, lest it be your mind it kills.

    This one sure seems like it was from Herbert's Dune.

    I like it.
