Celebrate the Feast of Faith and Joy

December 25, 2010

Faith is based on genuineness, trusting in yourself and your vision. You are not faking anything, and you are not trying to impress anybody. Faith inspires discipline, which is not based on punishment or arbitrary rules and authority, but rather on becoming thoroughly gentle and genuine. Discipline guides you and shows you how to live in the warrior’s world. With this unwavering discipline, the warrior takes joy in the journey and joy in working with others. This joy is like music, which celebrates its own rhythm and melody. The celebration is continuous, in spite of the ups and downs of life.

Adapted from Slogan 20 in Shambhala: The Sacred Path of the Warrior Book and Card Set: 53 Principles for Living Life with Fearlessness and Gentleness.
