A dependency is anything to which the energy of the warrior is hooked.
One easy-to-visualize example is that someone who is uncomfortable being alone with themselves could be said to have a dependency on friends, or constant input from t.v., music or some other form of stimulus.
Other examples, used only to illustrate the point: a constant need for approval would represent a strong dependency.
Inability to break addictions such as smoking, drinking, gambling, etc., are indicative of dependencies.
Only by identifying the dependencies and breaking them does the warrior free up that energy to be used for other things.
It could also be loosely understood that “will” and “dependency” are mutually exclusive.
As long as powerful dependencies are in command of the warrior’s energy, it is virtually impossible to summon the will, because the energy required to summon the will is in use by the dependency.
