Renunciation

by Alexey R. Basov

Renouncing everything that clouds the purity of thoughts and mind is the most essential and simple rule that must be followed by a true Warrior. Impatience, disappointments, anxiety, doubts, anger, the fear of loss, and hundreds of other desires and passions possess the thoughts of ordinary people tenaciously, and rule their behavior.

But a Warrior, seasoned by Bushido, reaches the state of pure and cold consciousness that can be compared to ice illuminated by the winter sunlight...


As if he is standing on the top of a soaring metaphysical cliff, at the bottom of which the impotent waves of human desires and ignorance rage.


This is exactly why a true Warrior never repents mistakes and defeats, while also not rejoicing too much about his victories.

A Warrior is always on the summit of the Mountain.

There, the everlasting Sun of Truth is shining, and the pristine white snow covers a path stretching into the distance, with no footprints in sight.

 

 

 





I will not get lost...
The North Star is shining in the darkness...
The road to Valhalla, straight like a sword, is always in front of me!
