DO WATCH BELOW! 4 minutes of BEAUTIFUL!

Everything can be taken from a wo/man but one thing:
the last of the human freedoms
—to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances,
to choose one’s own way.
When we are no longer able to change a situation,
we are challenged to change ourselves.
 
X
Between stimulus and response there is a space.
In that space is our power to choose our response.
In our response lies our growth and our freedom.

X

What is to give light must endure burning.

X

Ultimately, wo/man should not ask
what the meaning of her/his life is,
but rather must recognize
that it is sh/he who is asked.
In a word, each wo/man is questioned by life;
and
she/he can only answer to life
by answering for his own life;
to life she/he can only respond
by being responsible.

X

Happiness cannot be pursued; it must ensue.

Compassionate Intensity

Balancing Your Warrior Spirit
When we recognize our warrior self we can exhibit strength without sacrificing tenderness.

WWW

The human soul is dynamic,

 adapting readily to the changing conditions we encounter
as time marches unerringly forward.
Though we may use a single set of characteristics to define ourselves,
we slip easily into contradictory roles
when circumstances necessitate doing so.
When we feel called to explore the way of the warrior,
we may feel a strong sense of dismay
because we have no wish to disavow ourselves of our softer side.
 Yet embracing the warrior spirit is not
a matter of denying gentleness or compassion
—all human beings embody all traits to some degree,
and
 seemingly contradictory aspects can coexist
 peacefully within us.
 We can exhibit strength without sacrificing tenderness
precisely because both are elements of the self
and
both have a role to play in the complexity of existence.
WWW


Balance is the key that unlocks the door
of peaceable coexistence
where opposing characteristics of the self are concerned.
The warrior spirit,
when allowed free reign,
 is overpowering and all-consuming.
If it is to be an affirmative force in our lives,
it must be tempered with wisdom and moderation.
 Our inner warriors are ready to react instantly
 to conflict, chaos, and confusion,
while nonetheless remaining committed
to a path of goodwill and fairness.
They lie at the root of our dedication to integrity
 but do not drive us to use our strength
to coerce others into adopting our values.
The warrior may be nourished by raw emotions
with the potential to cause us to lash out,
but it channels that energy
into positive
and
constructive action.
WWW

Your inner warrior is one source of strength
you can draw upon in times of great need.
When you employ your warrior spirit thoughtfully,
it manifests itself as clarity, focus, determination,
courage, constancy, and an unflappable zest for life.
The warrior views roadblocks as evolutionary opportunities
 and
 is not afraid to pursue a purpose to its climax.
There is more than enough room
in the existence of the warrior for softness and benevolence,
and the warrior’s willingness to stand up for their beliefs
can aid you greatly as you strive
to incorporate these ideals into your existence.
Exploring this unique side of yourself
 is a means of broadening your reality
so you can internalize mindfulness
while meeting life’s challenges
with an intensity of spirit
that never wavers.

YOURSELF IN
BY NEW LABELS
ROOTED

RATHER THAN WINGS.
TELLING THE TRUTH OF THE PAST

NO SUPPRESSION.
