Inner Conflict: the battle of ages

“In dwelling, live close to the ground. In thinking, keep to the simple. In conflict, be fair and generous. In governing, don’t try to control. In work, do what you enjoy. In family life, be completely present.”
Lao Tzu

I wrote sometimes on “War Within” where I discussed extensively on the battle that goes on the inside of us and how we can break through from forms of bond addictions and low self esteem.

When trying to break of an habit or a belief, we mostly concentrate on the outside forces to find solutions to our addiction or particular habit.

The truth is external forces does little damage compare to forces that reside inside of us. There are some things that will allow absolute freedom in our minds and on the long run over throne us. Remember “As a man/woman thinks in his/her so he/she is.

Some little things we do though they appear harmless and cool through unconscious feeding will end to become an addiction we may not easily break. Also, we need to break away from some belief system we have inclined our mind with if we will take control over our mind.

Guard your heart with all sense of responsibility,   and be  the conscious of the things you allow into the windows of your heart.

On a final note, I like to  end with Forrest Curran words in (Purple Buddha Project: Purple Book of Self-Love) .He said:

“By creating an image of low self- esteem within ourselves, we bomb and terrorize our true self. When we refuse to forgive, we create an insensible war from old grudges. When we allow stress to impede our healthy flow of energy, we create the weapon of destruction that kills humanity.”

permit me to share a story of an old frail man that seek refuge in the house of a young man sometimes in the winter. This man looked shrink and harmless when he was allowed to stay  for a while
