Real Non-violence is a very deep philosophy and way of life for a warrior.
Not only does it require me to harm no one physically, but also to avoid harming anyone’s self respect.
Such an ethic requires tremendous awareness and sensitivity. When I have learned to be gentle with myself, I can be the same with others.
Go easy on yourself, allow yourself and others the freedom to get it WRONG and learn. This will inherently remove one of your fears and bring you to a place of action and compassion.
This is why it’s part of the warriors promise, – Do your best – Do no harm – Keep your agreements
Take care Deepak
