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.
