Conquering without Aggression

about conquering the enemy, it is important to understand we are not talking about
aggression. The genuine warrior does not become resentful or arrogant. Such ambition or arrogance
would be simply another aspect of cowardly mind, another enemy of warriorship in itself. So it is
absolutely necessary for the warrior to subjugate her own ambition to conquer at the same time that
she is subjugating her other more obvious enemies. Thus the idea of warriorship altogether is that, by
facing all our enemies fearlessly, with gentleness and intelligence, we can develop ourselves and
thereby attain self-realization.
