Onward To Pain & Ruin

It is a matter of life and death, a road either to safety or to ruin.
— Sun Tzu, The Art of War

How many times have you put off making a decision, because you had a deep-seated fear that making the wrong choice would lead to pain and certain failure?

We are taught that safety is the goal. That safety is all-important.

But what we’re not taught is how to determine when this preconceived notion of safety is actually a detriment to the very thing we want.

Because the type of safety that is based upon external circumstances and outcomes is not, in fact, safety.

Instead, it is the riskiest gamble of all.

So what’s the alternative?

It’s us doing the deep work and cultivating our own safety, an internal state of Being that is born in the spaces between our breath and our sensations.

And rather than continuing to go to war with our emotions and our desires, we learn to wage war against the real adversary:

Resistance.

We begin studying the intricacies of our own body and, from there, remember the Truth of who we are… on an identity level.

Which is immutable and, unlike the first type of safety, in no way subject to the whims of the external world.

But it takes a whole lot of presence and focus to drop into this space of remembrance.

And it requires us to do the one thing we’ve been avoiding at all costs:

Choosing.
