All Is The Same

"I do whatever is in front of me to be done, and leave the results up to Him."
                                                                                                                                  -Anonymous

Although the all-consuming fear cries out for Vengeful Justification,
All is not so bad in the quiet corner of the madness.

I have woken in the morning, I have done my morning rituals.
I have run a bath, and I am preparing myself for a good day.

In Kung Fu training I learned that Work, Rest, and Play, all is the same.
I used to take the meaning wrong, as I did with so many messages,
And believe it a Call to Arms of the Inner Spirit.
"Fight Hard at Life",
Did the words beckon.

But the real meaning is much more solid: Just be, in every moment, every situation.

Just like on the battlefield, in the training room or in a demanding job,
I am learning to simply accept, that if I am out watching a movie with my best friend and lover I might get kicked in the emotions, punched in the soul, or have my intentions blocked and deflected.

And I might not.

Go with it. 

If I am resting on the couch; a bullet of resentment or a bombshell of fear may come hurling past. It may hit me, and it may whizz past my emotional shield and lay armed in another room. I must simply watch my step, and take it out to the trash with the rest of the discarded inventory.

Go with it.

Work, Rest and Play, all is the same. Life is not a struggle when I realise that the whole place is a battlefield. Battles can be enjoyable. I just have to watch my step, never abandon my side, and defend it with my life and be prepared that one day I too will die on the battlefield of Life.

Love finds a way.

"God grant me the Serenity, to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and Wisdom to know the difference."
