Musings

“Respect the enemy” is a maxim I only learned to apply to myself after a massive amount of failure.  My ego uses every anecdote, every feeling and intuition, every convoluted rationale to justify self-indulgent/self-destructive actions.  It was only when I finally learned to respect my ego’s ingenuity and persistence that I was able to acknowledge it as a worthy piece of me, and in my best instances, do what a masterful opponent does with all its adversaries:  [cajole/force/intimidate/lure/etc.] it into working for me.
