Keep pace with the energy of the day. Like a patient warrior wait to see what arrives on the horizon. Wait for the enemy to show itself before charging into battle. Wait for clarity before speaking, acting or reacting. Keep eyes alert, mind calm, body relaxed. With awareness note that which is, that which is not, and that which is conjured by the mind.
Breathe and listen to your heart, just as the good warrior breathes and listens intently to all that is before deciding whether a battle is worth fighting or not. Take into consideration all conditions and all consequences. Perhaps it really is time to retreat from outer battles and deal with what is going on inside. A real warrior knows the difference.
