Conquer



You can conquer people, distant lands, countries, or something more mundane like the business world or Wall Street, but until you have conquered yourself, you have won no great victories. As the saying goes, “we have met the enemy, and he is us.” A classic quote if there ever was one. It is our own selves that create most of our misery without the help of anyone else. If we can use the wisdom of the Way to defeat our own inner demons, our penchant for causing unnecessary drama, our foolish impulses, we have indeed won the ultimate fight.
