Theory of Hidden Power
by FalconZero of Dark Ages
All aislings have wondered whether there has been a force or something
magical inside them which made the outside world. When one touches a plant
and makes deum, he feels a sense of happiness. When one touches the enemy he
feels pain. When one touches his god or goddess in a holy prayer, he feels a
sigh of relief and faith. What drives these small emotions? What makes us
focus on what is at hand? I believe that every aisling has a hidden
potential. Each inside each and every one of us there is a bit of magic
which flows throughout our bloodstream. I believe that when this potential
reaches high insighted minds and highly skilled people, a aura of energy can
be seen within one if he/she closes their eyes and awakens their innerself.
Not just any self, but a self of strength, intelligence, wisdom, con, and
dexernity. The power hidden potential in one, the more hidden potential that
one can awake. I've noticed this happen many times especially with monks.
This is probably due to the large amount of meditation they go through and
the intense amount of seeing enemies flash before there eyes. Monks attack
with instinct and heart, rather than brute and weaponry.
Another encounter which I noticed of the hidden potential is when I was
walking one beautiful day down Abel. I was interested in selling my goblins
skulls to the local skullmaster. Next to the bank was a monk of a rare
insight. When I passed by him my Holy Diana started to shake ruthlessly and
as if trying to point at the monk. I ignored the sign and considered it just
the wind. However next thing I knew, a creature from the dubhaim flew from
above the sky and fell down to the ground with such fury that I believed the
whole ground shook. As I turned around I saw the monk get into what seemed
the White Bat stance. He instantly disappeared and my eye opened widely to
see what was going on. I knew that the demon was here to attack on any he
sees. Therefore I took evasive action, I cast the Beag cradh on the demon
but it had no affect on him. As the beast came closer to me, he swung his
arm up in the air going for a slash at my chest. I believed it was my end.
When all of a sudden my holy Diana started to move angrily again. As I
looked at it pointed behind the demon. I noticed that the monk seen before
had ambushed the creature of dubhaim and laid a furious punch at the
monster, knocking the demon across from me and hitting a wall in the bank.
When I turned back to look at the monk I saw the hidden potential. My staff
kept twirling and after a few seconds, the monk started to glow in a yellow
aura. He got scared and ran away. As he ran the aura faded and faded till
there was nothing left. My mind was twirling around like a merry go round
trying to figure out what just happened. No monk has the ability to have
that much strength. When I glanced back at the demon, the wall was destroyed
but the demon had vanished.
I've been trying to figure out what happened that day and what could of
caused the sudden increase in insight in a aisling. Thus I figured it out.
After immense study and some praying of my own I was shown a light. This
light made me see that within aisling emotion, one has the ability to
release incredible powers. Since the monk new I was in distress, he felt he
had to do something. Therefore his body, mind, and heart became one. This
made his heart pump a sort of magical blood. This blood must be the source
of the hidden potential. I myself have felt it and seen it. It is because of
that day that I see now powers of amazing abilities exist within all of us.
It is because of that day, that I started to meditate as well. Hopefully
some day when evil triumphs, I will be there to show the pure and the well
hearted how to release and awaken their hidden potential.
