so i read this morning —

the best warrior

leads without haste

fights without anger

overcomes without confrontation

he puts himself below + brings out the highest in his men

this is the virtue of not confronting

of working with the abilities you have

of complying with the laws of Heaven

this is the ancient path that leads to perfection
• tao v 68 •
two words stand out: confrontation and perfection

confrontation is, and has always been, at the core of my being

i avoid it and fly from it at all cost, yet confront and war in my mind

yet complying leads to the ancient path of perfection

i know this. just need a reminder. why i have tattoos

but how do i tattoo that?
