Illusion (s), of irreconcilable paradigms from Warriors' Experience


  • Illusion (s), of irreconcilable paradigms
  • Time, meaning of
  • Contradictions

Question:

Théun, I need your guidance please! I cannot reconcile the two concepts "give yourself time" and "be prepared to make your last stand right here and right now." Can you please explain this to me?

Answer:

:) No need to panic, my friend! <g> There is NO contradiction between the two. It is merely a question of NOT confusing two different issues. Ponder the aphorism:

"There is no time to lose, and yet we are surrounded by eternity!"

It is a matter of WHERE you CHOOSE to place the focus! And the FLUID warrior places the focus so as to meet the NEEDS of the battle at hand. Sometimes we have NO time, in that the power lies in the MOMENT! Sometimes we must GIVE ourselves time, as in once having made a decision, there is still a whole PROCESS that has to be accommodated!
