I wish to share with you today the following paragraphs from the book Teachings of Don Juan
A man goes to knowledge as he goes to war: wide-awake, with fear, with respect, and with absolute assurance. Going to knowledge or going to war in any other manner is a mistake, and whoever makes it might never live to regret it.
When a man has fulfilled all four of these requisites- to be wide awake, to have fear, respect, and absolute assurance- there are no mistakes for which he will have to account; under such conditions his actions lose the blundering quality of the acts of a fool. If such a man falls, or suffers a defeat, he will have lost only a battle, and there will be no pitiful regrets over that.
May I remind all of us to remember to be really good to others as we attempt to gain more knowledge as we grow in all areas of our human egos. And if you can do something nice for someone right now and that will help ease some of this world's burden. I leave you now with thoughts of pure love, peace, and kindness. Hugs to all.
