Mindful Smack: Warrior
by Elena Brower on September 27, 2011
“The term warrior does not of course symbolize someone who makes war on others. Rather it refers to someone who works to overcome aggression, the fundamental cause of all war, in oneself and in the world. To do this requires bravery as well as gentleness.”
-Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche
We are at our best when we are less aggressive and more accepting. With situations, with people, even with memories, let’s practice accepting what the moment offers, without aggression, without trying to change it. That is the sign of a true warrior. Brave AND gentle.
