here i offer a level of honesty this is a hard situation.. but for a father not so hard.. i would overthrow or die trying.. the guard has an issue a need that must be pacified .. if i overthrew then there are a multitude of outcomes most of which are not favorable.. ideally it would be great if you could save the day.. but that's not going to happen in this instance .. it is a no winner... there are environmental variables assuming that you are locked in a room with just you the fore mentioned and few others.. that may yield immediate results but they would be short lived in all honesty .if i failed then at any level the guard wins what happens next is what he or she chooses..
there is too great a risk involved in this scenario to belittle emotional attachment ... albeit.. we are not responsible for the actions of others ... a father would be haunted with the realization they didn't even try.. at that moment of confrontation .....that realm of thought is furthest from the mind... this is what sets us apart from the animalistic instincts of survival...

isn't it all too awkward how we tend to blame society... yet we are society..
even if we do not conform to the ways of our peers our rebellion is still a part of that society..
would it not be unwise to see our role in a society even if we do not go with the flow of that society...
we live in a world of indifference ...
yet we are a part of that indifference..
there comes a time when duality can no longer be sustained.
day and night no longer separate..
but a part of the ever changing moment...

to me there is nothing more interesting then watching someone on a quest to power only to find themselves when they have found that power to quest yet again for how to use it..

oooh i love this practical application of philosophy..having worked in sales some i have found when someone has there mind made up about a product or service there is very lil you can do to change that but if you can find a way to see it in the same light they do you it is easier to add a rebuttal . everyone has had bad experiences at some point in time with something in some form.. the trick is to find the key points that have worked for the consumer and amplify them with reinforcement while working in conflict resolution..
interestingly enough this can also be practical application of work into philosophy.. :P

Oy. it is not for me to throw my emotional baggage at someones door step. but in the spirit of the intentions of this thread and as means of validation of How Mike Budo so elegantly worded how he perceives our connections to one another here.. :D
I work in a job environment that is very demanding of my time and mind. complicated by a few devious employees that toe step alot to make themselves look good and do little else but complain otherwise. meanwhile i manage this and things at home
Me and my Fiance are having a baby. we share a deep love.. she has been battling depression for some time. this makes things difficult as times she finds it difficult to function. she has 2 children that i love as if they where my own. i have 4 that i have only gotten to see a handle full of times since 2011 my x wife is controlling and if i do not bow to her whim that is her punishment to me.. i took that power away from her but the cost of that leaves me missing my children so much.. I pay child support which leaves very little for my own expenses let alone taking care of a family.. but we muttle through and manage ok.. we have been homeless 3 times this year. stayed with realitives in campers etc.. this last month we finnaly found a place we could afford a lil more easily.. it is hard to force my visitation rights when my home life has been so unsettled. this past month i also lost my last grandmother to kidney cancer.. i could not make it to see her before she passed and the last time i seen her was 7 years ago..we where close. but life has pulled me so far away from what i knew as home.. the funeral was a bit rough for me this woman was the foundation for my entire family upon my arrival everyone was glad i could make it and it was like my presence made it somehow a lil better i have not had time to grieve properly. which to some may make me seem a lil detached.. but that is not the case. there are things i have to do regardless how i feel. i take the time when i can to post here.. things that seem important to me at the time. this is where i am now.. last year thats a story for another day. lol.. i have realized i have become like a mirror to most people they can see theirselves in me and i can show them any part they wish to see and even the things they dont.. at my discretion.. i find i use this knowledge to often help see my self to remind me...
as for attachments hold on to everything close to you.. but with the mindset that nothing is permanent ..even spiritual attachments.. the force flows freely so too should our spirits.. i have found that when life gets you down keep on doing the things that need done for that moment things will fall into place even more so if you are attuned enough to have for sight and the courage to grasp opportunities that arise from random events..

How do we Force Channel? with every action or thought unwittingly or on purpose we push and pull we draw and we cast
Why do we Force Channel? as we grow we learn to use the things around us..we learn how the things around us utilize us. we channel not only by choice or an ends to mean but to better understand our connections in our places as part of the force. whether we have madet that realization or not.
