Waging War


To be at peace, we must wage war against those things that prevent it; unhealthy desires, laziness, ignorance. These things stop inner harmony from occurring. Every bone in our body must be a dagger ready to strike at anything less. We wage war not with violence, but with wisdom. A good soldier is never violent, a good fighter not angry. It is the calming wind that tames the churning sea. It is the generation of peace and understanding of the Way that will overcome the forces that seek to prevent it.
