Choosing Our Battles
We ‘choose our battles’ and ‘keep our powder’ dry (ready for musket reloading) so as not to waste our precious time and energy. Thoughts can be a tool to solve a situation, or they can be used to aggrandise our self.
There are always distractions, so we needn’t make a meal of everything 🙂 If we carry around our loaded weapon of memories, we will be battling – finding fault both verbally and non-verbally – all the time, in every situation. After all, ’empty vessels make the most noise’.
As you can see, speech can be cliche-ridden, and full of unoriginal or overused ideas or phrases! 😀
But even in cliches, there are, in every culture, truisms that are dharma.
