3rd Oct ‘11 (taken from my personal journal)

To speed up when you want to slow down,
to be quiet when you want to shout,
to listen when you want to be heard,
to say ‘yes’ when you want to say ‘no’,
to let go when you want to hold on,
and to walk away when you want to fight.

To learn how to be strong enough to be weak,
is what creates the warrior within.
The one who has the self-control to do,
that which is right, not that which is desired.
The essence of weakness in strength,
is the essence of the Peaceful Warrior.
