Strength Within

For some time now I have felt that to reach my full potential I must be strong within. To me, this means overcoming my greatest weaknesses (fear and anger) using internal coping methods rather than external methods. This only makes sense: after all, external coping methods are not always available for a variety of reasons (inappropriate around people, not enough space, too cold or warm, etc.) but internal coping methods should always be available with enough discipline and training (after all, their route is in the mind). I know with the counseling I’ve received and the wisdom I’ve gleaned from Taoist and Wiccan texts that I am well on my way. Likewise, I know that I was on the brink of achieving that strength at the end of last summer. Now I have a goal: to master the skills of meditation, shielding, extrasensory, and pathworking (in short, the internal skills that will allow me to become strong within) by the end of the summer, if not sooner. And if I do that, I think that anything is possible.
