A diamond is just a piece of charcoal that handled stress exceptionally well
We have a fear of facing ourselves. That is the obstacle. Experiencing the innermost core of our existence is very embarrassing to a lot of people. A lot of people turn to something that they hope will liberate them without their having to face themselves. That is impossible. We can’t do that. We have to be honest with ourselves. We have to see our gut, our excrement, our most undesirable parts. We have to see them. That is the foundation of warriorship, basically speaking. Whatever is there, we have to face it, we have to look at it, study it, work with it and practice meditation with it.
I heard this recently….
While black men are getting shot to death, and thousands of men, women and children are being bombed in the Middle East…. White people in America are doing the ice bucket challenge.
What else can I say?
Don’t seek, don’t search, don’t ask, don’t knock, don’t demand – relax. If you relax, it comes. If you relax, it is there. If you relax, you start vibrating with it.
One of the most common ways of not acknowledging our faults is to blame others.
Fuck the police
