Where is the Spirit?
Where is the Power?
Human endeavor is not measured by dreams and desires, but by action.
Yet, without those dreams and desires – there can BE no action.
That is why there is a “target” or a “goal”. A purpose to life.
That is why we excel.
Often against all odds.
Because we MUST.
Sometimes under the most trying of conditions that discomfort us to the utmost.
And to paying the ultimate price
With our life if the need arises.
Or we die trying.
We do this because we believe in a future.
And the perfect knowledge that: what does not kill us, makes us stronger.
The road to strength – in ourselves and in our belief - in our Self - is more than a test of our resolve to overcome adversity.
It is so that we overcome our Own Self and be renewed thereby.
To overcome, and dissipate our own personal fears and private hell’s.
And discover what makes us human.
Be assured that There Really IS a Hell.
It’s residents are composed for the most part of those who never could see the opportunity...
The balance are made up from those who saw opportunity – and did nothing
with the knowledge.
To them "opportunity is missed, because it is dressed in overalls, and looks like work", to paraphrase Thomas Edison.
Their Hell is “regret”.
A different place from “purgatory” – but the effect is the same.
Hell is a Truth Learned Too Late!
Be as wily as the Wolf. As fleet as the Peregrine Falcon. As stealthy as the Panther. Smooth as a Viper.
Be as one with your inner predator.
There is no god – except the one we place before ourselves.
If you have a god – then surely you should be striving to do as good, if not better than your god.
Failing this, you cannot hope to achieve anything.
The bar is so high and the course so long.
But remember this… there is no god here.
This is your race. Your contest. And only you will measure it.
Better to Learn Wisdom TOO LATE!
Than to never learn at all...
