Nothing can match the strength of those whose lives have been shaped and forged through challenging and overcoming difficulty. The purpose of our practice is to develop such strength and fortitude. To cultivate such an invincible core is in itself a victory. It is also the greatest benefit of our practice and our daily habits.
Those who can develop inner strength, resilience and understanding will savor unsurpassed happiness; they will manifest the supreme state of being. Each life is made up of mistakes and learning, waiting and growing, practicing patience and being persistent and that my friends is a great way to view and incorporate the concept of strength into your life.
Peace and Love, Jim
