Inner Battles

We all have inner demons to fight, we call these demons, fear and hatred and anger. If you do not conquer them then a life of one hundred years is a tragedy. If you do, then a life of a single day can be a triumph  ~ Yip Man

Life is never a smooth journey. There is a constant battle that goes on inside all of us.  Negative energies that taunt and deride us. Fear, uncertainty, frustration, even anger. Constantly tormenting us and stunting our spiritual growth.  Just like with every battle, we can choose to submit to these negative energies or we can choose to fight and overcome them.  Embrace your power. Be strong in Spirit.  Be fearless.

Even a one hundred year old oak tree,  limbs worn and weathered from battling the elements of nature, continues to grow and seek warmth and solace from the sun.

    So true. Practicing gratitude and positivity is a great way of doing that. Having faith and patience works.

    100 years of living in fear! Now that’s a horror movie. Fear is like a bear invading your home and you have 2 choices. You can add more fear and let it spiral out of control or you can welcome it in and face it without adding more fearful thoughts and eventually it will go of it’s own accord.
