An average man.
    #4249293 - 06/02/05 07:30 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

" An average man is too concerned with liking people or with being liked himself. A warrior likes, that's all. He likes whatever or whomever he wants, for the hell of it."

Does anyone but me agree with this at all? :grin:

Okay, I'll bite.

But even though I'm about to give a response, from where do you get this quote?

What does being a "warrior" have to do with it except that it sounds "cool?"

The day will come when, after harnessing the ether, the winds, the tides, gravitation, we shall harness for God the energies of love. And, on that day, for the second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire.  -Teilard

Never underestimate the "coolness factor".  :cool:

Nope! This is why people get tattos and piercings to be "different", just like everyone else....

I don't believe in average man.

What people do behind the doors, only they know. You, me, he, she, that...

There is just image "average"... mask which some people wear...

Closed doors, I wanted to say.

What people think is much worse than what they do. If all fantasies could somehow could be materialised we would find us in hell... literaly...

Absolutely, The concept of Warrior is something I can understand and relate to. I spent many years as a Martial Arts practitioner and instructor. The term represents someone who is committed to warfare of either physical or mental or emotional type.

People freak out when you say warfare or warrior. That's because of the way they look at the meaning. Fighting is part of life. It's all in the battles you choose for yourself. And you do have at least partial choice of the kind of battles you will wage in your life.

Swami, you are a warrior on the court IMO. You're not out to kill anyone. You  battle with your fatigue, or moods, or lack of  concentration, and your opponent. You win often it seems because you have a strong warrior spirit. Now you may call it something else that suits you better.

____________________________________________________________________

"Okay, I'll bite." Frog, these are from Castanada. I use them because they are controversial. People think because he most likely made the Don Jaun and his adventures up, all the concepts are not valid. To me they are just as good and often the same as many great religions and philosophies.

Here's another on this topic.

"To be a warrior is not a simple matter of wishing to be one. It is rather an endless struggle that will go on to the last minute of our lives. Nobody is born a warrior, in exactly the same way that nobody is born an average man. We make ourselves into one or the other"

"People think because he most likely made the Don Jaun and his adventures up, all the concepts are not valid. To me they are just as good and often the same as many great religions and philosophies."

Many religions rely on parables to convey the tenets of their belief system.  The Bible consists primarily of stories constructed to "spoon feed" ideas to those who cannot (or will not) stretch their minds around straight philosophy.

(but you knew that  :smile:)
