Wat vrees rerig is…

Desember 27, 2011 in Sonder kategorie

“Once there was a young warrior. Her teacher told her that she had to do battle with fear. She didn’t want to do that. It seemed too aggressive; it was scary; it seemed unfriendly. But the teacher said she had to do it and gave her the instructions for the battle. The day arrived. The student warrior stood on one side, and fear stood on the other. The warrior was feeling very small, and fear was looking big and wrathful. They both had their weapons. The young warrior roused herself and went toward fear, prostrated three times, and asked, “May I have permission to go into battle with you?” Fear said, “Thank you for showing me so much respect that you ask permission.” Then the young warrior said, “How can I defeat you?” Fear replied, “My weapons are that I talk fast, and I get very close to your face. Then you get completely unnerved, and you do whatever I say. If you don’t do what I tell you, I have no power. You can listen to me, and you can have respect for me. You can even be convinced by me. But if you don’t do what I say, I have no power.” In that way, the student warrior learned how to defeat fear. ” Pema Chodron

    Throughout our lives we become involved in so many wars, and most we never know whether we won or lost, we see and feel the scars.. Sometimes simply offer the battle the gentleness of your pure love,.. The outcome can only be peace, knowing all is exactly as it should be, just a beautiful blossom grows upon the branch of the peach tree, and soon falls to the ground.. The tree is life and it’s seasons, and the fruit finds it’s flavour in our love,..
    Sterkte weereens liewe mensie…
