‘The self-confidence of the warrior is not the self-confidence of the average man. The average man seeks certainty in the eyes of the onlooker and calls that self-confidence. The warrior seeks impeccability in his own eyes and calls that humbleness. The average man is hooked to his fellow men, while the warrior is hooked only to infinity.’ – Carlos Castaneda
Rooting myself back into Mother today with some work on the land. Was reflecting on some of the turmoil in the world and was feeling the overwhelm of our plight as Humanity in regard to the tragedies we see before us day to day.
Then I thought of an Ali v. Frasier I replay I saw on ESPN one time. I often share a tale about what I learned watching that fight and seeing what was in their eyes.
I understood what a warrior was the moment it flashed before me. Like the first time seeing a naked woman I knew I saw something special and didn’t know quite how to get my hands around it … metaphorically speaking???
It’s a tough gig at the moment for many of us in the world
Most of us are tied to the collapsing world systems for survival, so the endurance of our spirit gets tested. It gets stretched and pulled to the limits and sometimes I do hear that inner voice asking the question, “How deep is this will of mine… will it withstand… what difference does it make?”
In moments like this I know only to turn to my breath and find some humbleness and beauty right now before me. Breathe life, strength and courage into being authentically you. May All The Beings In All The Worlds Be Happy…
Just Breathe… bypass the chatter in the mind and ego and drop the commentator. That’s where I’m headed. The land always helps the stories drop away for me.
Big Loves to You.
Love you land time…
