Confirmation

No battle today. No anticipation of such. An acceptance of the cessation of conflict, however brief. A realisation that the battle was within all along; that the adversary was and is self-created in resolution of an issue within, the imagination brought to life in the fulfilment of a destiny made manifest through self-determination to make it so. If not fear, then challenge, self-imposed; self-fulfilling prophesy.

If you resist anger, you are always angry. If you resist sadness, you are always sad. If you resist suffering, you are always suffering. If you resist confusion, you are always confused. We think that we resist certain states because they are there, but actually they are there because we resist them.
