28 Learn to fight the right way, for the right thing

About: The process of improving

We must learn to lay the sword of truth on its side. Then we can spread the truth the same way we spread butter. Smoothly, evenly and without slicing anyone.

As we start doing our personal development work, we will gradually unwind the twisted wiring in ourselves. And this will bring us into more and more clarity. Our confusion about what to believe—about what is the truth—will go away. But what can happen, as we start to see things more clearly, is we pick up the sword of truth and use it to stab people. After all, even though we’re accessing more light, we still have darkness within us. Overcoming our own darkness is a long, slow process.
