“I will teach you to exist in this world as a silent and powerful spiritual warrior. You will become an iron-willed seeker of truth. I will teach you how to remain steady in the face of the constant fluctuations of the world, how to maintain your purpose, how to be awake and face every aspect of life without reaction, without fear. I will teach you how to run deep, how to live all the days of your life in this world, and on the last moment of the last day to step across with freedom, purpose, and clarity of spirit.
I will teach you how to sit silently, how to wait, how to learn to discern what is important in this life and not be distracted by what is not important, how to see what is not obvious. This is the liberation of the warrior who experiences joy beyond the experience of good fortune, and whose heart is not broken by misfortune.”
