Tranquil in Chaos

Tranquil in Chaos

There is no doubt that the world is a little chaotic,
to say the least.
It’s easy to bitch and complain about the state of politics,
or the current health crisis.
Just remember that it’s SUPPOSED to be that way;
it’s a challenge to try to steal your attention, your focus,
your Courage…but be still. Hold steady, though the wild winds blow-
that’s how warriors are made, and not one
is without scars.

Walking a thin line…

Walking a thin line…

There is a thin line between the insane and the genius. Both, in fact, are merely reference points; assessments done by other people. We often live our lives based on the opinions and expectations of other people.
Maybe we need to reassess what’s crazy,
living according to the rule of the herd and their collective opinion,
or walking you own path, however crazy.

Marcus Aurelius also wrote : “Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth.You have power over your mind – not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength.

Maybe crazy isn’t so crazy, and as you contemplate, know that Marcus Aurelius knew this…in the second century AD.

Battle cry.

Battle cry.

It seems natural to seek the easy way out, to seek fairness, to frown at the looming darkness on the horizon. May we remember that all gain is preceded by conflict, and conflict is only given to Warriors.
Turn it around.
Run toward the flames.
Welcome the rain. Rise to the challenge, even if it kills you.
You’re a Warrior. It’s what you’re born for.
The storms should be fearing you.
