Default You are the Masters....

Any conflict, whether it takes place within the body and mind or outside of you, is always a battle against the self.

You must be aware at every moment. From getting up in the morning, working, eating and going to bed. This is the place of mastering the self.

You must not show weak-points (to a degree) in everyday life, life is a fight! You must remain concentrated and not reveal your defects (to a degree); through continuous training in self control, gradually you will discard them.


A modified Godfather Quote, by Chillen:

Know yourself, but know the enemies of the self better and keep them close.

You have to know your enemy well in order to beat it.

Know your enemy and know yourself, you will have hundred battles to fight (figuratively speaking) and you would emerge a hundred times victorious.


This is to you, brotha and sista's:

It's an inner ability to do it because it's important for you -- for your health, appearance, energy level, strength.


Feel the power of Self Mastery



YOU ARE THE MASTERS

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Mastery. We have reached mastery when we neither mistake nor hesitate in the achievement.

Mastering Yourself


The ability to control and discipline ones self is vital and will give you the Self Mastery title.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------


If you HAVE SELF-MASTERY, it means that:

When you feel negative emotions like jealousy, you take the time to deal with those feelings before you say or do something you will regret

If you make a plan, you can be trusted to follow through on it until it is complete

when you set a goal for yourself, you will keep trying until that goal is reached

if you make a promise, you can keep it

if someone offers drugs, you have the strength to say “not for me, I’m good”

if you get depressed, you have a plan in place to help yourself get back on track

if you see someone being dissed or bullied, you have the courage to speak up

if you see someone being hurt, you have the compassion to get help

if someone needs your help for a good cause, you lend a hand even if there’s nothing in it for you

if someone breaks your heart, you can take the time to give yourself TLC and recover slowly (without doing something stupid while you are hurting)

when things keep going wrong in your relationships, you take the time to analyze yourself for possible improvements instead of blaming others

if someone comes to you with rumors, you wait for the facts before forming an opinion

if someone tells you mean things about another person, you have the strength to hold your tongue and not join in with the dissing - instead you just offer support to your friend by saying "I can see how that made you mad"

when your life seems boring, you don’t complain or do anything crazy just to “shake things up” – instead, you take action to create positive changes

if you make a plan to have a max of 2 drinks when you go out, you stick to it

you know your body and your moods well enough to notice when you’re feeling rundown – instead of taking it out on others, you know that it’s time to give yourself some privacy and a spa night

when you have a bad day, you have the strength to remind yourself it is just “one day” and does not mean that you have a crappy life

when someone treats you with disrespect, you distance yourself or correct it by speaking up and telling them how you feel - that you won’t tolerate that behavior anymore if they want to be in your life

if you feel loopy or cranky, then you take the time to find out why – what’s bothering me? – is it PMS? – is it a full moon? – do I need more sleep?...

you force yourself to get homework and chores done before “play”

when you can’t change your circumstances, you change your attitude

you know that being happy is more important than being right

when life gives you lemons, you log on to the net and find a good recipe for lemonade!

(R. Bolen)
================================================== =======

Mastering yourself FLAT ROCKS!


Keep working on it MaB brothers and sisters.....

Mastering yourself is a continuing and on-going journey. And, though you will not master yourself, 100 percent perfect, this should be the goal, sand bagging accomplishments and improvements along the path of life.

Always trying and getting up again, and again, to master it....and this will..

Bring the master's presence: What you are after within you.

Peace and harmony,


Don
