The Good Fight

“Then I remember that I know what it takes to fight a good fight. It know that rage must fade away and give itself up to a steady, constant compassion, a focus not on what I choose to fight against, but what I choose to fight for, to cling to, to love. Because sparring, doing forms, meditating, they all share in common the incredible strength it takes to move from one point to the next with as much clarity, integrity, compassion, and unmitigated intention as possible.”
