The results are in and the election is thankfully over. Four years from now, there will be another. 4 years after that another and so forth.
Roughly half the people will be thrilled with the results. Roughly half the people will be depressed by them.
You are a modern day warrior. We train in Systema not to fight in wars, hand to hand or to conquer nations. We train to be better people. We train to find courage and discipline and use these in our lives. We train to overcome our self-defeating beliefs. We train to disbelieve the horror stories we tell ourselves and learn to write the truth – how we are powerful, loving, creative beings.
It is moments like this – the post-election – that we get to “test” how well we have been training.
To those who are happy about the results, do not gloat or rub it in the faces of those who had different views. It is unbecoming of a modern day warrior.
To those who are not happy about the results, do not whine or act violently in your actions or your words. It is unbecoming of a modern day warrior.
Be the modern day warrior you have been training to be for at the end of the day, you and I are solely responsible for our own lives.
