Be like a warrior who goes to war knowing he’ll win the battle. . .

Many times in our lives, we are required to close cycles so that new ones can begin. We arrive at points where we need to let go of the familiar and expand our horizons by creating new paths to go through. Points at which fear can also be our most common companion. . .

Feeling fear is not the problem, the problem is when we let it overcome us, obscure our ability to see clearly and even paralyze us. . . However, when we recognize that fear as an experience and allow ourselves to simply be with that experience, we can feel fear, and yet choose to act; we can feel fear, and yet persevere in the face of any adversity; we can feel fear, and yet open the door to our own heart.

Openness, choosing to act, persevering while connecting with our own pain is something that takes courage and confidence. The courage that comes from following our own heart and the confidence that comes from allowing ourselves to be as we are, trusting our inner strength, the spark within us. . . The courage and confidence of being like a warrior who goes to war knowing he’ll win the battle.
