I’m now finding myself in a rather surprising headspace where I’m starting to realize how closely my method of walking with Iwa Pele (Good Character) seems to be staying somewhat within the framework of Buddhism.
For the last year, I’ve been directly addressing questions of ego, and have come to a realization that, for me – in this moment – it’s not so much that I need to ‘let go’ of ego, as opposed to keeping the ego knee-jerk reaction drive everything that comes out of my mouth. I’m far from perfect at this, but strive in earnest to know and live my truth to the best of my ability, without judgement or fear.
Some days I’m better at this than others. Some days, I crash and burn and feel obliterated.
But every day I rise. Every day I get a little stronger.
I dearly thank all of you who have been with me throughout this journey. Each and every one of you has had something valuable to teach me, or to share with me, and I am forever grateful.
