The key to warriorship and the ultimate definition of bravery is not being
afraid of who you are. Examine your experience to see what it contains that
is of value in helping yourself and others. Warriorship is the opposite of
selfishness. We become selfish when we are afraid of ourselves and afraid
of the seeming threats the world presents. We want to build a little nest,
a cocoon, to protect ourselves. But we can be much more brave than that.
Even in the face of great problems, we can be heroic and kind at the same time.
