That you should not exert power or have control in your life was one of the main themes of Reeducation. I have explained to myself before, in numerous posts on Reeducation and the relevant comments threads, why this is a fallacy. I still have a bad habit of relinquishing power. Relinquishing power means neglecting the self, which causes fear. In Reeducation, legitimate fear is reencoded as lack of faith, and fear without object is anxiety, which causes that dreadest of all dread diseases, back pain. At the center of this labyrinth of Banes, however, is their cause: the renunciation of power. I spent a day reconquering power and in doing so vanquished many Banes. Wednesdays are excellent days. They are dedicated to Iansan, who rules the winds, and Reeducation is a Christian and I am not.
