Peaceful Warrior




‎***One of the most powerful movies of our time. Must Watch.***



"Everyone wants to tell you what to do and what's good for you. They don't want you to find your own answers, they want you to believe theirs. I want you to stop gathering information from the outside and start gathering it from the inside."

..........................

"Pain is a relatively objective, physical phenomenon; suffering is our psychological resistance to what happens. Events may create physical pain but they do not in themselves create suffering. Resistance creates suffering. Stress happens when your mind resists what is…the only problem in your life is your mind's resistance to life as it unfolds."

.........................

"Take out the trash inside your head. Clear your mind of everything you don’t need (doubt, past failures, future victories, ego … etc.) that's been keeping you achieving your full potential."

.........................

“Habit is the problem. All you need to do is be conscious about your choices and be responsible for your actions.”

..........................

“Don’t fall into the trap — If only I had this, I’d be … If only … , I’d get to be happy.”

"Everything has a purpose, even this, and it's up to you to find it. "

"A warrior does not give up what he loves, he finds the love in what he does"

"I call myself a Peaceful Warrior... because the battles we fight are on the inside"

"There is no starting or stopping - only doing."

"There's no greater purpose than service to others. "

"People are not theirs thoughts, they think they are, and it brings them all kinds of sadness."

"The first realization of a warrior is not knowing."

“Don’t pin your success on outcomes.”

.........................

Dan Millman: Life has just three rules?
Socrates: And you already know them...
Dan Millman: Paradox, humour, and change.
Socrates: Paradox...
Dan Millman: Life is a mystery. Don't waste time trying to figure it out.
Socrates: Humour...
Dan Millman: Keep a sense of humour, especially about yourself. It is a strength beyond all measure.
Socrates: Change...
Dan Millman: Know that nothing stays the same.

............................

"You haven't yet opened your heart fully, to life, to each moment. The peaceful warrior's way is not about invulnerability, but absolute vulnerability…to the world, to life, and to the Presence you felt. All along I've shown you by example that a warrior's life is not about imagined perfection or victory; it is about love. Love is a warrior's sword; wherever it cuts, it gives life, not death."

............................

"If you don't get what you want, you suffer; if you get what you don't want, you suffer; even when you get exactly what you want, you still suffer because you can't hold on to it forever. Your mind is your predicament. It wants to be free of change. Free of pain, free of the obligations of life and death. But change is law and no amount of pretending will alter that reality."

...........................

"Moderation? It's mediocrity, fear and confusion in disguise. It's the devil's dilemma. It's neither doing nor not doing. It's the wobbling compromise that makes no one happy. Moderation is for the bland, the apologetic, for the fence-sitters of the world afraid to take a stand. It's for those afraid to laugh or cry, for those afraid to live or die. Moderation…is lukewarm tea, the devil's own brew."
