Lover's Sword


Generally you say, "I am a Lover, and a Warrior."

The truth is that the Warrior, too, is a Lover. It is two aspects of the same being.

War is a sacred human undertaking. It is not violence. It is ending what must be ended if it is not ending on its own.

Part of your training has been war - you are a warrior. Now when you must lift the sword, and wield it, do it with the conviction that it is right.

Remember, it is not the sword that cuts. It is the faith of the yielder of the sword that does.

Do it with neither the concern for triumph nor defeat. Remember the war is fought for neither. The war is fought for the war. Everything is (done) for itself.

This is the NOW.
