from journey to ixtlan

"...a warrior is a hunter: .............
he calculates everything,
That is control, but once his calculations are over, he acts, ............
...........that's abandon,
the mood of a warrior allows him to hold on to himself,
and let go of himself at the same time. .............
a warrior is not a leaf at the mercy of the wind,
no one can push him:
no one can make him do things against himself,
or against his better judgement. .............
a warrior is tuned to survive,
  • and he survives in the best of all possible fashions. ..............
    A warrior could be injured but not offended,
    for a warrior there is nothing offensive about the acts of his fellow man,
    as long as he himself is acting within the proper mood.... ..............
    To achieve the mood of a warrior is not a simple matter,
    it is a revolution,
    to regard our fellow men as equals is a magnificent act of the warrior's spirit. ..............
    it takes power to do that........
