Be attentive to the self, even in the midst of attending to others. There is no sense in creating situations where your energy is compromised. A warrior’s main concern is always with energy, protecting it, maintaining it, and rejuvenating it.
You can only do so much for another being. A warrior knows this, and so a warrior gives unconditionally but never to depletion. A warrior is kind and loving, but a warrior needs nothing in return and so a warrior is free to return to the warrior’s work once obligations are met. A warrior’s life is concerned with gathering enough energy to do what comes next. So watch your energy at all times.
