Power Obsessed With Itself Turns Demonic

Here is another interesting Qabalistic passage relating to the imbalance of Severity (Din = Judgement) and Mercy (Chesed = Love). I believe many in positions of power, particularly within the Golden Dawn community, would be wise to meditate on this:

"Here we have one of the most important moral lessons of Kabbalah: judgment untempered by love brings about evil; power obsessed with itself turns demonic."
