~ Carlos Castaneda

“The self-confidence of the warrior is not the self-confidence of the average man. The average man seeks certainty in the eyes of the onlooker and calls that self-confidence. The warrior seeks impeccability in his own eyes and calls that humbleness. The average man is hooked to his fellow men, while the warrior is hooked only to infinity.”

“A warrior doesn’t know remorse for anything he has done, because to isolate one’s acts as being mean, or ugly, or evil is to place an unwarranted importance on the self.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“The only thing that is real is the being in you that is going to die.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“When a warrior learns to stop the internal dialogue, everything becomes possible; the most far-fetched schemes become attainable.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It doesn’t matter how one was brought up. What determines the way one does anything is personal power.

Self-importance is our greatest enemy. Think about it – what weakens us is feeling offended by the deeds and misdeeds of our fellow man.  Our self-importance requires that we spend most of our lives offended by someone.”
