Home Schooling - Concept Of Self Mastery


Song:  Straightaway To Orion
Artist:  Kitaro



Self mastery is simply...
being able to guide one's life
upon the correct path...
regardless of the pain involved...
 or pleasure not to.

Although self mastery does not make
the successful results of one's efforts
 a forgone conclusion...

it is through self mastery
that one may accept defeat
to a better man...
to be able to learn from him...
to come back stronger.

To be able to accept defeat
to something not of our doing...
to something that is inevitable
despite the depth of the dreams...
the efficiency of the plan...
the purity of the commitment...
is self mastery at its core.

That is when a failure is still a victory...
the most important one...
a Zen victory.



It simply is as is.

No amount of elaboration...
may lessen the responsibility to one's self.
