“Truth perceived gives assurance.
Skill yields self-reliance.
With courage, we can defy danger.
To increase power, increase humility.

Through constant contemplation, we can arrive at the truth.  The more experienced we are, the more thorough our understanding, and thus the more we can come to rely on our knowledge.  When we exercise what we know, it not only extends our understanding of the truth but helps us take action in meaningful ways.  The more we do, the more self-reliant we are.

The more accomplished one becomes, the more circumspect one should be.”

I’ve gained immense clarity and built confidence recently from embracing quiet time, complete separation and silence from the those in my daily sphere.
